Carthusia I Profumi di Capri

Legend has it that in 1380, the Prior of the Carthusian Monastery of St. James on Capri gathered a bouquet of the most beautiful flowers he could find on the island to give to the visiting Queen Giovanna. The lush mix of white flowers remained in the same water for three days, giving the fluid a mysterious and bewitching fragrance.  A friar versed in alchemy traced the scent's origin back to Capri's wild carnation. 

Fast-forward to 1948, when the current Prior discovered the old perfume formula in a journal and revealed it to a chemist from Piemonte in Northern Italy with the Pope's permission. Thus, the smallest perfume laboratory in the world was born, and they called it Carthusia I Profumi di Capri. The tradition lives on, and the Carthusian monks' creation methods are still practiced today. Centuries-old knowledge flawlessly combines with natural, superior-quality proprietary ingredients, some hand-picked on Capri’s Mount Solaro.
