Capri, the Italian island of dreams, has been an enchanting oasis since Roman times.
Its natural beauty, sunny climate and innate glamour are legendary.


In 1380 the Father Prior of the Monastery of St. Giacomo was taken unawares by the news of the arrival on Capri of the Queen Giovanna D’ Angio’ and so made her a flower arrangement with the most beautiful island flowers. The water was not changed for three days and, when the flowers were discarded, the prior noticed that the water had acquired a beautiful fragrance unknown to him. He went to the father alchemist who traced the origin of this scent back to the “Garofilium Silvestre Caprese”. That water became the first perfume of Capri.

We are thrilled to present the Carthusia I Profumi di Capri collection, exclusively distributed in Australia by Saison.
