Very helpful Review
It's been a long time since I have tested a fragrance as intensively as "Sedley" from de Marly. Not because I wasn't convinced by him, but because I was fascinated by his very own scent. At first I didn't know whether it was fresh or powdery or green. Only the above mentioned aquatics I could directly exclude - at least for me. I was also pissed off, as I also imagined that it would not last long, which I am no longer convinced of.
When spraying the "Sedley" my first association goes in the direction of the previous speaker: shower scent! But a shower gel for the "upper class". It smells very soapy, slightly powdery and a little bit sour and pungent, which might be due to the Ambroxan. Moreover, the citric chords of the top note make sure that this impression is emphasized. The citric notes merge so much into each other that it is difficult to smell out exactly. As already written above, we have succeeded in creating a fragrance composition that, at least for me, is completely unique. In the further course of the fragrance "Sedley" becomes even more soapy (lavender) and gains freshness with a simultaneous decrease in citricity. But there is still no trace of aquatic notes! The cedar, which is added later, gives the fragrance a nice tart note, which for me cannot be missing in a masculine newcomer. This exceptional sour-fresh soap mixture remains quite linear until the end and changes its face only slightly. Sometimes I have the feeling that he might drift into the powdery, but then again the freshness gains the upper hand.
The often criticized durability of the fragrance I could sign at the first test, it lasted for 4 hours and was hardly noticeable. In all other tests, however, it was a real powerhouse for a Freshy. Yesterday - at 29 degrees - it even lasted 9 hours, although it was certainly not always smellable for my surroundings. I, however, could smell him all the time. Also, after about two hours of wearing it, I met with my best friend who told me how good I would smell. Therefore a small proof for a very nice projection after two hours. I would therefore conclude that it is very potent, especially at high temperatures, and needs the heat to radiate properly. I also have to admit that I was not sparing with 5 spray bursts, but you need them with this one, too.
Conclusion: For me my new favourite summer scent, which is very unique, has a nice soapy and sour freshness and will certainly always be well received. It is only moderately complex compared to the other de Marlys, but that's exactly why I don't always find it wearable. Here, however, an "evergreen" was created that is just right for the hot days. But if one wants to pay the still high price for it has to be weighed. For all those who appreciate DeMarly for its heavy, complex and opulent fragrances, "too little" might come across here. For all those who like it simple, fresh, uncomplex and smart, this could be a nice new addition.
Have a nice summer!
