Guess for Men by Marciano
Well, Guess for Men by Marciano has succeeded in nudging me over to the dark side. Years ago, there was a song by ( I believe ) Randy Newman called "Short people have no reason to live". Naturally, it was tongue in cheek, controversial and amusing. It has me pondering whether Guess for Men should indeed have a reason to exist.
I experience a short lived citric-marine-ozone concoction that quickly evolves into a musty, peppery musk. Perhaps it's my skin, but there's a borderline B.O. aspect that's reminiscent of when you've over-exerted yourself repeatedly and you're almost at that point of exuding a noticeable armpit aroma. Guess for Men seems content to curtail its evolution here and showcase what I've already described as peppery musk with a hint of rubber. Thankfully, the sillage and longevity are as disappointing and for that, I am grateful. It goes without saying that I don't recommend this scent and if you're going to live dangerously, at least take the precautionary approach and sample first. You just may dig the stale musk and rubbery pepper.
