Carthusia’s celebrated Terra Mia is a deliciously gourmand scent with a gentle bouquet of white flowers that add an extra hit of creamy warmth. Terra Mia finds its ultimate expression in the tradition of a land rich in sun. In Terra Mia the sweetness of coffee is combined with Hazelnut, Vanilla, Neroli, Pink Pepper and Amber Woods to create delectable memories of Capri. Velvety sweet notes mingle with earthy richness to create a wonderful ode to the land of Capri. As Terra Mia translates to ‘my land’, this fragrance is grounded in earthly delights.

The Neapolitan artist Lello Esposito designed for Carthusia an exclusive Pulcinella (classical character) that gives a new face to the packaging and expression of this original fragrance.

Terra Mia is an Eau de Parfum that will most certainly give the wearer 6 – 8 hours worth of longevity on the skin (more if you’re lucky). The riches of warm, earthy spice, coffee, hazelnut and woods here combine heartily with a touch of sweet white florals, enveloping you invitingly the entirety of it’s wear, from opening to ultimate and delicious end.

We love the way this fragrance immediately whisks you away to a European café. Terra Mia means my land in Italian, so it’s not really a stretch to be transported to such a place upon first whiff of this glorious gourmande. A destination rich in robust aromas, where coffee and café treats mingle with the delicate note of warmly sunned, white floral air. Sweet, deep and vibrant. Delizioso!

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.
