Dedicated to the goddess in whose honour Emperor Tiberius built one of the most important imperial villas in Capri, “Io” is a dynamic and decisive fragrance. Both sophisticated and modern, Io di Capri combines the sweet tones of a wild fig tree with the cheerful, stimulating scent of tea leaves, with a subtle touch of a sea breeze coming through. Io di Capri refreshes the senses as it captures the rugged beauty of untouched nature along the coastline of Capri with its aromatic fragrant blend.

HOW IT WEARS
Io Capri is an Eau de Parfum that should give you a good 6 – 8 hours worth of wear on the skin. It’s aromatic opening of white florals and wildflowers majestically mingled with a delightful note of mint, lemongrass, citrus and tobacco flower will thrill and delight as the stand out notes here, even after the dry down has revealed the slight hint of coconut in the base (which would be understandable given it’s namesake is an island) but is most likely the delicate combination of fig, star anise and tea.
Just as it’s name suggests, we love how Io Capri effortlessly combines it’s complexity of notes to create a sense of well being, inner peace and tranquility. Easy, breezy days in the sun, where tangible delights of fig, apple blossom, seaweed and wildflowers abound as if you could actually reach out and touch them. Soothing, uplifting and bright, like white light. The scent of spring and pure delight.
ABOUT THE BRAND

Today, Carthusia is all handmade, observing centuries old practises ensuring the highest level of quality in their fragrances. Atmospheres and emotions of Capri are found in all Carthusia products, and all ingredients are derived from Capri’s environment paying homage to the beautiful island.
