|In 1681, 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.
These unique values are brought together in 1681, the rich new essence in which a thousand different intensities converge into a sensation of refined complexity. Top notes of mandarin, bergamot and rosemary, heart notes of lavender and black pepper and base notes of incense and cedar wood blend together to create the fascination of a distinctly noble perfume of great character.
