Behind Curie's Scents: Crafted by Firmenich & Ann Gottlieb

Scents play a major role in our day to day life. Think about it, catching a whiff of your mom’s cooking can instantly make you feel calm and at home, while noticing the sweet aroma of fresh flowers in the springtime immediately melts away the winter blues. Fragrances also have the unique power of taking you back to a certain time and place by calling distant memories to the forefront of your mind. 

Scents in your personal care products can make a major difference in how you go about your day, as they can boost your mood and make you feel more confident. That’s why we dedicate so much time to crafting signature scents at Curie. Along with listening to what our loyal customers (AKA you!) want to smell like, we have partnered with world-renowned fragrance experts, including Ann Gottlieb and Firmenich, to bring our scent dreams to life. 

Partnering with Firmenich: A Fragrance Powerhouse

Ever wonder where some of your favorite perfumes (or Curie scents 😉) are born? Chances are inside Firmenich, the world’s largest fragrance house. The company has been perfecting the art of fragrance making since 1895 and continues to enhance scent developments through innovation. In collaboration with their scientists, we’re able to create the most elevated signature scents. Truthfully, our scents would not be possible without their expertise or the nose of one very important woman…

The Expertise of Ann Gottlieb

Ann Gottlieb is one of the most iconic fragrance developers in the world. One of the scents she has created is probably sitting on your vanity right now (Marc Jacobs Daisy or Calvin Klein Obsession, anyone?!). She has crafted some of the most acclaimed perfumes from Dior to Estee Lauder — and she's also the nose behind Curie’s signature scents, including Coconut Nectar and Warm Vanilla. 

Sarah and Ann meet once a month to discuss new ideas for our next big scent (and you’re going to love what we have down the pipeline). During their brainstorming, they take into account what our customers want and then get to work playing around with specific notes to make the scent come alive. 

It takes about 10 to 20 iterations to land on the winning final result that appears in Curie products — perfection takes time, but it’s so worth it! With Ann guiding us with her incredible nose, we feel confident that you’ll adore every scent creation just as much as we do 💞.

Curie’s Core Experience: Signature Scents

Certain aromas can have a major impact on your well-being, which is why scents are central to the Curie experience. We want you to smell amazing because it actually boosts your confidence! With functionality at the heart, Curie’s scents enhance your mood and turn ordinary tasks — like swiping on deodorant or lathering some body wash — into a fun, happiness-inducing self-care ritual. 

It’s important to us to offer a variety of scent options, so you can find one that speaks to you and your personality. Not everyone wants to (or should) smell the same! Your deodorant should be just as unique as YOU! Do you gravitate towards floral vibes 💐 or prefer bright pops of citrus 🍊? We have something that will satisfy your nose and leave you feeling confident.

Along with unique scents, we also prioritize creating 100% clean fragrances that anyone can wear (you can find the exact scent ingredients on our product pages!) — so even if you’re sensitive to perfume, you’ll be able to wear our products without issue. (But if you’re still worried, we also offer our classic Deodorant Stick in an unscented version!) 

Scents That Make Sense

Whether you want to start your day on the right note 😉 or are looking for a quick mid-day pick-me-up, Curie’s scents will keep you feeling your best. Now the real question is what scent should you choose? Between Orange Neroli, White Tea, Warm Vanilla, and Coconut Nectar (plus more coming soon!) there are plenty of options.
