Carthusia

"A dedication to the heritage of Capri"

Presentation

Capri, 1380, the Prior of the Carthusian St. James Monastery was caught by a surprise visit of the Queen Joan I Anjou. A welcome bouquet of the most beautiful flowers of the island. As he went to throw them away after 3 days, he noticed the water was perfumed. This emblematic scent was traced back to the wild carnation of Capri the "Garofilium Silvester Caprese".  

In 1680, the old perfume formula was found by the prior of the monastery, and by obtaining the permission of the Pope, he created the smallest perfume laboratory in the world called “Carthusia”.

The Carthusia fragrances have a strong connection with the island of Capri, it's breathtaking landscape and the mediterranean sea. Most of the components are derived exclusively from the environment of Capri. Handpicked Rosemary from Monte Solaro is used as the main essence for the male fragrances and the emblematic wild carnation as the basis for women.
