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.
Dedicated to the cradle of all the great civilizations of Europe, Africa, and Asia, Mediterraneo is a sunny fragrance, original yet versatile, which blends the classical pristine freshness of lemon leaves with the youthful and sparkling tones of green tea. These bright scents are layered atop a base of white musk and cardamom to create a sun-filled and dynamic fragrance that evokes the magic of Capri Island.
