Cartusia Perfumes available in store.
Legend has it that in 1380, the father prior of the Carthusian Monastery of St. for the arrival of the Queen Joan of Anjou on Capri made a floral arrangement out of the most beautiful flowers of the island. The water of the flowers, a wild carnation native to the island, became the first perfume of Capri. History, on the other hand, relates that in 1948 the prior of the Monastery discovered the old formulas of the perfumes and, by permission of the Pope, revealed them to a chemist from Torino, who created the smallest laboratory in the world and called it "Carthusia", i.e. "Certosa". The tradition is now being continued using the same methods as the Carthusian monks did. All the components are made from genuine high-quality ingredients and even the end product is carefully hand-wrapped.
