Corallium Eau de Parfum

SKU: 20751

Try to imagine the fresh breeze of the Isle of Capri, crossed by inland winds carrying scents of perfumed wood, aromatic herbs, flowers and fruits roughened by the salty air.

And then again: the sharp notes of Bay and Myrrh, of Mandarin and Bergamot combined with dense Patchouli and Cedar, masterfully balanced by a solid base of Sage, Musk and Tree Sedum.

These are just some of the sensations bursting forth from Corallium, the new Carthusia essence created from the sea with its astonishing fragrance of fine value and lasting persistence on the skin.

“...there is Perseus, unchaining Andromeda, naked from her tidal rock, and laying Medusa’s head upon the ground, blood spurting from her severed neck, staining the water of the sea, from which grew coral.”

It is from nature, and in particular from the resources of the Mediterranean, that Corallium gains all its fascination, producing a perfume of rare intensity and sensuality, perfect to gratify the most demanding connoisseurs. A prelude to success, supported by all the experience of Carthusia, specialists for many years in offering unique and exclusive products which carry the fragrance of Capri throughout the world.

Legend recounts that in 1380, the father prior of the Carthusian Monastery of St. James, caught unawares by the news of the arrival of Queen Joan of Anjou on Capri, picked a boquet of the most beautiful flowers of the island; these remained in the same water for three days and, as he went to throw them away, the prior noticed that it had acquired a mysterious fragrance unknown to him. So he turned to the friar versed in alchemy, who traced the origin of the scent to the "Garofilium Silvestre Caprese".

History relates that in 1948 the Prior of the Charterhouse found the old perfume formulae and, upon obtaining permission from the Pope, revealed them to a chemist from Piemonte in the North of Italy, and thus created the smallest perfume laboratory in the world, calling it "Carthusia", i.e. "Charterhouse".

Today Carthusia has put into practice its centuries-old knowledge in order to develop a culture of perfume unique in the world. Over the years, it has refined its mastery over the olfactory senses, perfecting and structuring its discernment of essences, in order to grant patrons the purest and most titillating emotions. Nowadays, as was done in the past, all stages of production are carried out by hand to guarantee accurate application of the natural methods involved, and the exquisite care of traditional craftsmanship.
