The story behind Carthusia perfumes is itself alluring and mystical. The first fragrance dates back to 1380 where the most beautiful and fragranced wildflowers In Capri were gathered and placed in water. The water took on such a delicate exquisite perfume that the prior, with the help of an alchemist, decided to reproduce it.
The ancient recipes were rediscovered in 1948 when the secrets were revealed to a chemist and Carthusia was born. The smallest and most exclusive perfume laboratory in the world, Carthusia produced a limited production of handmade perfumes that were extremely refined and known only to those who were lucky enough to stay on the island.
Today, Carthusia perfumes are prepared with the same care and passion as in the past & in small quantities and using the finest of natural ingredients. Rosemary from Mount Solaro and Garofilum Silvestre gives these Capri perfumes unique, refined notes and harmonies. The essences are processed, filtered, hand-bottle, individually prepared and packaged by hand.
The Factory Store of the perfumes by Carhusia is located in the centre of Capri, just few minutes from the famous Piazzetta, overlooking the Carthusian Monastery of St. Giacomo where the ancient legend took place.
