Carthusia, how to capture the summer essence of Capri

Carthusia is Capri’s most well-known cosmetics and perfume line. Products are made exclusively from blossoms and herbs growing on Capri. On the slopes of Monte Solaro, for example, and an endemic variety of carnation is used as basic ingredient for their perfumes.

Carthusia’s products originated in this monastery which you can see from its entrance – la Certosa di San Giacomo. There’s a nice legend connected to it, which is told on the sign on the wall next to the entrance (you can see it in the title picture).
