Carthusia: the perfumes of Capri

Carthusia is a brand of fragrances and other personal and home care products born on the beautiful island of Capri. The entire line is characterised by the colours, smells and names of this wonderful land. Carthusia's products, from fragrances and room scents to soaps and body and hand creams, are enriched with natural extracts of the highest quality. Discover the history and the world of Carthusia.

Carthusia fragrances: the history

The story of Carthusia began in 1948, when it is said that a local prior found some old perfume formulas inside the Charterhouse and decided, with the Pope's permission, to reveal them to a Piedmontese chemist: he created the smallest fragrance laboratory in the world, naming it "Carthusia", i.e. "Certosa". From that small and precious treasure trove of "recipes" and ancient knowledge was born Carthusia, which today has given life to a vast range of fragrances, unique olfactory accords that embody the soul of Capri's perfumes. Every day Carthusia strives to capture the unique emotion that only the island of Capri can offer, one that makes the heart beat faster, the stomach vibrate and horizons open up, through the rich aromas of this land. Every Carthusia fragrance evokes the paradisiacal setting of Capri, with its breathtaking views, white houses scattered in the flourishing vegetation dotted with bougainvillea, roses and cyclamen, the blue sky as a backdrop and the immense, overwhelming blue.

Finally, there is a very interesting legend about this Made in Italy brand: in 1380, the prior of the Certosa di San Giacomo, taken aback by the news that Queen Giovanna d'Angiò was coming to Capri, prepared a collection of the island's most beautiful flowers. The flowers remained in the same water for three days and when it was time to throw them out, the prior realised that the water had acquired a fragrance that was mysterious to him. He turned to a fellow alchemist, who identified the source of the fragrance as "Garofilium silvestre caprese". That water was Capri's first perfume.

Carthusia perfumes

Carthusia fragrances are born from the abundance of nature on Capri: lemons, mandarins, orange blossom, bergamot, cyclamen, jasmine, lily, fruity notes and many other scents. Via Camerelle Eau de Parfum is undoubtedly one of the brand's most sought-after fragrances, thanks to its intense, citrusy composition, which brings to mind the sea breeze and the essence of the flowers surrounding one of the most famous streets on the island of Capri. Via Camerelle EDP transports the mind to the most surprising street of the island, where every tourist gets lost admiring the splendid shop windows of the most prestigious brands, luxury hotels and villas enriched with precious coloured majolica. Fiori di Capri Eau de Parfum, on the other hand, tells of another facet of the Carthusia universe, taking us back to the wonders of this island: the sun, the crystal clear sky, the essence of flowers and the freshness of citrus fruits are concentrated in this eau de parfum with a noble and delicate soul. The Tuberose EDP by Carthusia features the noble and charismatic Tuberosa flower in a creamy and enveloping interpretation. The solar carnality of Ylang-Ylang surrounds it, before making it vibrate with Elemi and Cinnamon, and colouring it with Plum. In the wake, deep and material notes of Vetiver, Vanilla, Ambroxan and Musk.
