Dedicated to the cradle of all the great civilizations in Europe, Africa and Asia, Mediterraneo is an homage to the Mediterranean sea. It is a sunny fragrance – sun rays hitting the glistening blue ocean. An original yet versatile fragrance with sparkling freshness. Mediterraneo blends the classical pristine freshness of lemon leaves with the youthful and refreshing and clean tones of green tea. A bright and vivid fragrance that is effervescent and its happy citrus notes. Like a refreshing sip of Limoncello on a hot summer’s day in Capri as you recline beside the sea. Relaxing and invigorating all at once. A dynamic fragrance that evokes the magic of Capri.

Mediterraneo is an Eau de Parfum that will give you anywhere from 6 – 8 hours on the skin. A crisp and lively aromatic scent, the opening notes of citrus, eucalyptus and mint maintain pretty well throughout it’s wear. Combined with what one can only envision as a freshly hand picked posey of scattered wildflowers, cardamom and white musk to enrich it’s ozonic heights & lend a hint of earthiness to it’s dry down.

We love the way this fragrance feels like it’s been created simply by capturing a bottle of the fragrant sea air of this Mediterranean island paradise. Fresh, zesty and vivacious whilst simultaneously lending an air of cool, calm relaxation one can only imagine feeling constantly while experiencing the surrounding goodness of this fabulously famous isle. Sure to bring a smile. I mean, if it’s good enough for George Clooney…Avanti Summer!

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.
