In 1861, once the reconstruction of the Charterhouse was complete, the monks of Capri began to prepare the first perfume essences based on local herbs and spices. Since then, even though much has changed, the fine craft care and rigorous observance of natural methods have remained substantially the same. Carthusia means Charterhouse and Carthusia fragrances are still prepared with the aromas that the island continues to produce.
The first Carthusia fragrance ever. Based on the legendary formula dating back to 1380 when the scent was originally created for a Queen.The Mediterranean tones of wild carnation, lily of the valley, and oak come together with the exotic aroma of amber, sandalwood, and ylang-ylang in a fascinating floral melange, both joyful and unforgettable. A breath of elegance and radiance in a scent different from the others.
