Carthusia, I profumi di Capri
Those of you who have been to the South of Italy, will probably know Carthusia. The gorgeous and mouthwatering stores, with the prettiest beauty products ever, can be found on the island of Capri, in Positano, Sorrento, Naples and Rome.
Nowadays the brand is sold all over Italy and even abroad (if you're lucky, you'll find it close to home). However, the flagship stores are a not-to-be-missed experience, especially the one in Capri, in Via Matteotti, since this is also the factory.
Carthusia originated in Capri, when the prior of a Carthusian monastery found an old perfume formula, dating back to 1380! Back then the brand started out as "the smallest perfume laboratory in the world". And look at them now....
All the fragrances created by Carthusia, are handmade exclusively with local ingredients, making them the perfect souvenir to bring back home! How about a lemon, orange or olive scented soap? For only five euros you've got a very cute gift. Not to mention the refined perfumes, like "fiori di Capri" (flowers of Capri) or "gelsomini di Capri" (jasmine of Capri).
Carthusia's logo, a "flower siren", was developed by painter Mario Laboccetta in 1948. And that siren might just be the secret behind this bestselling beauty brand. She lures you in, seduces you and won't let you go until you buy something!
