FIORI DI CAPRI SOLID SOAP 125 g (4.4 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 the 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.
The first Carthusia fragrance ever. The Mediterranean tones of wild carnation, lily of the valley and oak come together with the exotic aroma of amber, sandalwood and of ylang-ylang in a fascinating melange, both joyful and unforgettable.
Solid soap, made with pure raw natural ingredients and triple-milled, good for general everyday cleansing of your face and skin. These colorfully presented fragrant soaps are slowly and accurately made according to the ancient Carthusia methods of production.
