Overview

The story goes that in 1948, the Prior of the Monastery discovered the old formulas of perfumes, licensed from the Pope revealed to a chemical Torino, who created the smallest laboratory of the world and called it "Carthusia" ie "Certosa". Today the tradition is perpetuated, the limited production methods are the same ones used by the Carthusian monks, all preparations are made from natural raw materials of high quality and even the finished product is hand-wrapped. The essence derived from rosemary picked on Monte Solaro befitting to man, while the wild pink Capri is the basis of feminine products.

I bought the classic Mediterraneo scent and love that it reminds me of the lemons of Capri - different than any other perfume I wear. The small bottle fits just fine in a US toiletries case for security.

Came across Carthusia by chance on day visit to Capri. It was an interesting and nice experience to sample the perfumes. Helpful and patient staff. Subsequently visited the Carthusia shop in Sorrento. The young lady was very pleasant, patient and helpful.

All stores of Carthusia are so beautiful and unique that you can't miss a visit to one of them. The perfumes are probably the best ones I have ever tried. No one should miss that experience!
