Post by Portia


Hello Frag Heads,

You know when you’re going through your fragrances and trying to find stuff to add to your sale doc? You come across something that you can not remember smelling, or the smell of, from when you got it and it’s sat there unloved ever since. You spritz and WOW!!! All of a sudden your searching comes to a swoon filled halt and….

Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Star fruit, Curacao orange liquor, grapefruit, cardamom
Heart: Peony, pink honeysuckle, jasmine
Base: Vanilla, musk, woody accords

Guess Woman by Marciano is really crunchy and chewy vanilla toffee and amber with a wash of florals piping high above in descant and a fun citrus buzz murmuring in between. It lasts really well and once the sweet citrus booze burns off you are left with a wonderful toffee and vanilla ice cream style floriental. Wearing it the last few days I have not gone a group without a frag compliment, it’s uncanny. Every time I do something new someone asks what my fragrance is or says I smell really nice.


Yes, it seems for this tiny moment in time I have found a new favourite. There are stages where Guess by Marciano could be a caramel aquatic. I know. It sounds disgusting but the thing is. It’s fabulous. I’m enjoying it’s initial spritz, it develops nicely and ends on a sweet woodsy nothings whisper about 5 hours later. What’s not to love?

I can’t stop spritzing myself with Guess by Marciano. There is a room with some of the world’s most expensive, celebrated and lavish fragrances and I keep spritzing a $20 bargain bin wonder. Hilarious.

What have you fallen madly in love with that’s bargain bin?

  1. Hi Portia, I always enjoyed Elizabeth Arden’s Green Tea. It’s one of the best green tea fragrances and smells fresh and warm at the same time. The EdT is very good and the body cream with honey drops is fantastic.


  2. Hi Portia,
    I will wait, sort of like a vulture I suppose, for my high end favorites to end up in the bargain bins. Lately various Amouage and M. Micallef fragrances have landed at my favorite discounters. Even with major price cuts I am loathe to part with what it takes to buy one of these babies. So – I seek out the real cheapies and am always happy to hear of one that YOU love and can’t get enough of. 100 ml of Guess by Marciano is on its way to my house right now. Thank you – I think…

    • HA! Azar, I do exactly the same thing.We are beyond help. I hope you get the same joy from Guess by Marciano that I do. It’s ripper.

  3. I love cheap thrills. I’m tempted to do what Azar did and order up a bottle of this one too.
    My bargain bin loves? Off the top of my head I’ll say Queen and Truth or Dare.


    • Poodle! Two of my absolute favourites. You would be appalled at the amount of Truth or Dare I have here. It’s shameful but I love it.

      • Hey Poodle and Portia,
        I’m right there with you guys on Queen AND Truth or Dare! This morning I went out in the greenhouse and the big gardenia plant was covered in blooms. The fragrance was so strong it almost knocked me over! I wanted to just hang out all day with the plants but had other things to do so dug out the Truth or Dare – my greenhouse gardenias in a bottle! This evening, to top off the Truth or Dare, I swiped on a bit of a very good Malay oud oil. What a fantastic combination! I was surprised how well they work together.

    • David Beckham has had some real hits. I can’t remember but there are a couple of them that I really liked DebB.
