The Carthusia story begins in 1948, when the Prior of the Charterhouse of Capri discovered perfume formulae of the 14th century friars, and with the Pope's permission, revealed them to a chemist to produce the first "Carthusia" perfumes. The tradition of this Italian perfume lives on today in these high quality scents produced with historic tecnhniques and using the most lucious fruit and flowers of Capri. Perfmes are created in limited quantities, and evoke memories of the vintage, the classic, and the elegant.
