I had a similar problem when I bought home a seedling labeled as 'Golden Marjoram' but which looked very much like Italian Oregano. Best as I can work out Marjoram tends to have smaller lighter colored leaves, and most importantly it has a perfumy/soap aroma. Oregano tends to smell woody and much more subtle.
