Corallium is born of nature, from the glistening blue sea that bathes the shores of the Capri. This fragrance combines scented woods, aromatic herbs, flowers and fruits, giving an unlikely intensity; a certain wildness. The scent of a fresh breeze that carries the wonderful island aromas with it. An alternative to traditional aquatic scents, Corallium transports us to Capri with the refreshing essence of the sea. A delicate freshness of the soft sea spray on your warm skin, positioned next to the earthy depth and intensity of the earth and the ocean provides an utterly unique interpretation of the Capresi landscape.

HOW IT WEARS
Corallium by Carthusia is an Eau de Parfum that will give you 6 – 8 hours worth of wear on the skin. Its fresh, aromatic opening of sweet orange and citrus gives way to herbaceous greens of sage and bay, cedar & sweet myrrh as it warms on the skin, giving it a very natural, somewhat creamy, almost dusty end. It then develops into a base of soft wood, light musk and what one might imagine to be ambergris, but is in fact the unique note of stonecrop, a sea and sand loving succulent found in and around sandy banks and beach roadsides.

LORE LOVES
We love how Corallium smells like it sounds. Visions of warm, salty coral gardens bordered by arid earth. A classical, almost olde worlde concoction, natural and charming. A soothing scent, more like wading slowly barefoot through an idyllic rock pool than a seafaring adventure. Underwater love? We do!

ABOUT THE BRAND
In 1380 on the island of Capri, the monks of Carthusian Monastery of St. Giacomo were taken by surprise when they learnt that Queen Joan of Anjou would be visiting them. Legend has it the father prior went around the island, gathering the most beautiful flowers he could find to present to the queen. The flowers were kept in water for 3 days, and just as the monks went to throw them away, they noticed a beautiful fragrance coming from the water. They went to their alchemist, who figured out how to recreate and preserve the scent, thus creating the first perfume of Capri.
Hundreds of years later, in 1948, the monks’ perfume formulas were rediscovered by the Priory of Certosa. With permission from the Pope, a chemist went about reproducing the formulas in a small laboratory, named Carthusia.
In the late 40s painter Mario Laboccetta created Carthusia’s logo – a flower siren surrounded by native Capresi blooms, symbolising the brand’s indissoluble bond with Capri.
Today, Carthusia’s fragrances are still all handmade, observing centuries old practises, ensuring the highest level of quality in their fragrances. The spirit and history of Capri is embedded in every Carthusia product, and all ingredients are derived from Capri’s environment, paying homage to the beautiful island.
