If I could nominate a Canadian treasure, it would be Marian. Her passion for perfume is inexhaustible. Her psychological profiling is so perceptive. Marian has contributed so much to perfumery that I'm more than delighted that you have awarded her with the Lifetime Achievement Award. She deserves it in spades!

Marian Bendeth is one of the brightest stars in the fragrance firmament. This extraordinary Canadian woman has been steadfast in her dedication to the world of perfumery. Her unique insights, knowledge and passion for perfume provide that rare combination of talents which inspire men and women to make fragrance an important part of their lives, the fragrance associates behind-the-counter to communicate in an uncommon and informative way; members of the media to wrap the facts in an environment of excitement, glamour.and authenticity. I only wish we could clone her"

Marian's work and knowledge fascinates me. Her profiling concept is a most original promotional tool. Put her expertise and insight to work in store, and watch the fragrance sales lift. She's magical with customers!"

Michael Edwards, Fragrance Author/Expert

“Marian is one of the best fragrance experts I know. She has an intuitive and almost extrasensorial perception of perfumes which allows her to learn a lot about a person particularly concerned by a scent. I really appreciate her kind collaboration in providing me precious informations and promotional help.”
