In 1380, the father prior of the Carthusian Monastery, caught unawares by the news of the arrival of Queen Joan, picked a bouquet 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 father alchemist, who traced the origin of the scent to the wild carnation of Capri.
In 1948 the prior of the monastery discovered the old perfume formulas and, upon obtaining permission from the Pope, revealed them to a chemis from Torino, who then set up one of the smallest laboratories in the world, which came to be known as Carthusia.
The symbol of the firm was created in 1948 by the painter Mario Labocceta and it portrays a “flower siren” that brings to mind the surreal and mythological landscapes of Capri.
All Carthusia fragrances have a hidden yet indivisible bond with Capri.
