Carthusia is a niche fragrance brand that takes inspiration from the island of Capri, off the coast of Italy. Its story dates back to 1380 when the Carthusian monks established their monastery on the island. In 1948, a chemist from Torino rediscovered the ancient formulas of the monks, and thus Carthusia was born.
The brand's fragrances are known for their use of natural ingredients, including local flowers, fruits, and herbs, and the perfumes are created in small batches using traditional techniques. Carthusia's scents are described as fresh, clean, and vibrant, evoking the Mediterranean lifestyle and the unique beauty of Capri.
