Sedbury Perfume by Parfums De Marly, Released in 2015, Sedbury is named for a horse which was said to possess refined beauty and perfect form. It was claimed that the steed was the top of his class. Seeking to replicate these qualities, the perfume is a marvel of floral balance and modern notes. This spring and fall fragrance shines most brightly during the day. The top notes are a union of tangerine, clary sage, bergamot and lavender. The heart notes walk you through a garden of tuberose, jasmine and iris. The base notes settle into the smooth aromas of vanilla, ambergris, benzoin, patchouli and vetiver.
The court of King Louis Xv is the inspiration for Parfums de Marly as the company seeks to reconnect with the fragrances from the 18th century. The business’s name is inspired by a sculpture called The Marly Horses. Julien Sprecher started the company, and from an early age he expressed an interest in perfumery. Before he began his own business venture, he worked for his family selling fragrances in Asia and the Middle East.
