Christopher Marlowe was the ingenious bad boy of Elizabethan theatre. Handsome and good natured, Marlowe was also a spy and a student of the occult - not to mention the rival of his fellow playwright, Shakespeare.
Marlowe led a tumultuous and bohemian life. He was fascinated by the self-destruction of the human spirit, which puts him on the same shelf as modern playwrights.
With Marlowe, Jardins D’Écrivains gives form to Baroque erudition through a figure filled with unbridled enthusiasm.
This fragrance is dense, heady, feral, and theatrical. The top notes feature the poisonous nectar of the tuberose blended with opulent osmanthus. Quaint middle notes of dried flowers evoke tragic poetry.
Hints of powdered leather with chypre make up the base notes.
