A fragrance of unparalleled freshness and deceptive complexity, Sedley is a dynamically bright men’s fragrance for those who know the power of confident subtlety. While it doesn’t enter the room in front of you the way many of Parfums de Marly’s powerhouse classics do, its bright, light aromatic citrus opening steadily develops on the skin into a beguiling woodsy masculine that hits its stride just as you hit yours. But first, a bit more about that opening- a hesperidic trio of mandarin, grapefruit, and lemon that combines the best of all three- tart, bright, juicy, and sharp, with the herbaceous, aromatic zing of mint and rosemary. Sedley’s development is impressively judicious- the top notes linger well past a normal opening, and the classic gentleman’s heart of lavender and geranium comes on so gradually that you may find yourself seduced by your own fragrance. And with that same deliberation, a warm, smooth, powerful base of musky woods emerges that hums on the skin with potent energy. It’s often said that real men speak softly and let their actions do the talking. If that’s you, Sedley is your fragrance.
