MEDITERRANEO EAU DE PARFUM 50 ml (1.7 fl. oz.)
In 1380, the Father Prior of the Carthusian Monastery of St. Giacomo was taken unaware by news of the arrival of Queen Giovanna D’Angio to Capri. So he gathered the most beautiful flowers from the island, and made a bouquet which remained in the same water for 3 days. Later, he noticed that the water acquired a mysterious fragrance unknown to him. And that water became the first perfume of Capri.
In 1948, the Prior of the same monastery rediscovered the legendary perfume formulas. Upon obtaining permission from the Pope, he revealed the formulas to a chemist from Piemonte, in the North of Italy, who went on to create the smallest laboratory in the world, and named it “Carthusia.”
Carthusia fragrances are made with natural, locally-sourced, highest quality, proprietary ingredients, some hand-picked on Capri’s Mount Solaro. And just as in the past, all production is carried out by hand to guarantee the accurate application of the natural methods involved, and the exquisite care of traditional craftsmanship.
Dedicated to the cradle of all the great civilizations of Europe, Africa and Asia, Mediterraneo is a solar fragrance, original yet versatile, which blends the classical pristine freshness of lemon leaves with the youthful and sparkling tones of green tea.
