Christopher Marlowe was the bad boy of Elizabethan theatre. Handsome and good natured, Marlowe was also a spy and a student of the occult. This scent is dense, heady, feral, and theatrical. The top notes feature the poisonous nectar of the tuberose blended with opulent Osmanthus. The middle notes of dried flowers evoke tragic poetry. Hints of powdered leather with chypre make up the base notes.

    First of all, thank you for the speed, for the nine wonderful (All) samples, for the purchase option and for your attention to detail.
    MARLOWE is not ostentation or elitism (surely you understand me), it is a work of olfactory art. An intoxicating floral at the start, dark and narcotic on the dry-down that sublimates the skin. It grabs you and won’t let go…. And in my opinion the best is in the drying.
    A warm embrace.

      Daring Light (store manager)


      Thank you very much José.
      I’m Sergio, and this will be one of the most personal responses on behalf of Daring Light.
      Honestly, I agree with you. It is one of my go-to fragrances, and I tell you that in complete confidence. When I decided to bring Jardins d’écrivains to Daring Light it was because of this beauty
      I am not a tuberose lover and since I discovered this fragrance years ago, I became addicted.
      Think that you have, in addition to a fragrance jewel, a collector’s item. The brand decided to stop manufacturing its perfumes in 100 ml format, and once the remaining stock of Marlowe in 100 ml is exhausted, it will be replenished with its new 50 ml format, in the style of the brand’s other fragrances, with a leather lining.
      All 100 ml bottles are the latest from Jardins d’écrivains.
      Best regards.

    I previously tried a sample and was delighted with this perfume, ideal for smelling it on the skin while reading a book. Inspiring spikenard

    A truly different tuberose fragrance, and this is coming from someone obsessed with this note, who has dozens of the most beautiful and renowned perfumes with this floral accord in his collection. Here it is presented with a remarkable spicy and woody undertone, something that adds mystery and darkness to a flower that normally appears luminous, crass and heavy. Highly recommended and personal.

      Hello Pedro.
      Thank you very much for your opinion, sincerely it is a magnificent perfume. I personally consider it one of the darkest nardos I have ever smelled. It is penetrating and beautiful. Long before I created Daring Light it was already part of my personal collection.
      Enjoy it very much.
