Parfums de Marly is known above all for its powerful humming, I love almost all of them. But I was also convinced by the fresher Percival. With two sprayers he already has nuclear performance with me, so I actually banned him from the work. So I took the trouble and bought Sedley abroad.
Unlike the other fragrances in the house, the bottle is transparent. The bottle is of the usual quality, the cap is very heavy and holds so well that it won't come off if you pull up the scent on it.
PdM has really added to the sprayer, it's madness. Very good quantity, top distribution. There is a minimal amount of perfume running down the sprayer if you spray more frequently. If one should not make with other PdMs, here inevitably...
[b] Fragrance [/b] 8/10
Sedley starts very fresh and pleasing, I perceive mint only minimally. After 20 minutes the base note is added, which is really pleasant if you like fresh fragrances. According to my allergy-infested nose, that was also the development, Sedley simply flattens out and disappears as fast as it came out of the sprayer. Base note, where did you bite? In general Sedley is very transparent.
b] Shelf life [/b] 4/10
The durability of Sedley has nothing in common with other PdM creations. Since this is a fresh fragrance, you don't expect 10+ hours like with a Herod, but that's almost cheeky for a niche fragrance. After two hours Sedley is only very close to smell, my olfactory disadvantaged woman smells there already nothing more. After four hours it is no longer perceptible.
b] Projection/Sillage [/b] 4/10
Where other fragrances by PdM feel even the 4th dimension overcome and project through space and time, Sedley remains unimpressed and sits very close to the body right from the start. A "scent trail" might be left behind for the first five minutes (estimated value, nobody walked behind for minutes :P). Logically, this doesn't get any better over time.
[b] Conclusion [/b]
Sedley is for me a summer scent, if at all, for work, sport or maybe just for shopping, he doesn't have more breath than that. But I know much cheaper alternatives, which will make your thing even better. Overall, this new release from PdM is rather disappointing. Shelf life and sillage are so low and the fragrance DNA is also not unique enough that a purchase at niche prices would be worthwhile.
