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.
Numero Uno was made for a man who appreciates the finer things in life, such as an aged Barolo and an elegant timepiece. In this day, any modern woman would be just as comfortable wearing this sensual fragrance, where the intensity of musk mingles with the spicy tones of rosemary, refreshingly led by orange and lavender.
The aromas of Sicily comprise this exhilarating fragrance. The tart burst of sun ripened orange and bergamot is accented with the aromatic mist of lavender and thyme. A spicy heart of ylang ylang and violet set against the glow of patchouli is resting on a weightless chypre base of myrrh, vetiver and musk. At once elegant and assertive, Numero Uno vividly captures the beauty of the island that inspired it.
