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 made Queen Giovanna D’ Angio’ a flower arrangement with the most beautiful island flowers. The water was not changed for three days, and the Prior noticed that the water had acquired a beautiful fragrance. This became the first perfume of Capri. Forgotten and re-discovered in 1948, the Monastery with permission of the Pope, revealed the recipe to a chemist, who created the smallest fragrance laboratory in the world and called it ‘Carthusia’. Today the perfume tradition continues and limited production ensures the same methods used by the Carthusian monks are respected.
