- Inventory on the way
The heady and seductive character of Tuberose, here as the absolute protagonist, blends beautifully with the sunny passion of ylang-ylang and cinnamon. A chiaroscuro mix of emotions mitigated into the deeper and warm base notes of vetiver, vanilla, ambroxan and musk.
IN A FEW WORDS
Daytime, breezy, happy.
WHY WE LOVE IT
A feminine, soft fresh floral without being too girly. Excellent for the office. Extremely easy to wear as a classy, modern go-to fragrance with a twist of fruit to make it delicious.
"Some places have intrinsic magic. Their unique beauty, that air of freedom, joy of life, lightheartedness that is spontaneously associated with them, permeate the look and intervene, positively, on the mood of those who are there, live it, or have been there and lived it and keep a pleasant memory of it. Capri, all over the world, triggers this contagious euphoria and who has had the good fortune to spend time there for long or shorter periods, keep the door engraved in their heart, as well as in their eyes. The senses are continuously enchanted, the sense of smell included. It is impossible not to associate Capri with a rich fragrant imprint, which mixes in the memory the scents of flowers and typical vegetation, warmed by the sun which brings out its enveloping harmony.
For the first time, Carthusia interprets one of the iconic flowers of perfumery: Tuberose. The brand does it in its most congenial way, thus remaining faithful to its own playful spirit, in which the olfactory imprint of its roots emerges with a well defined personality.
The leading role in Tuberosa is the namesake flower itself, noble and charismatic, in a creamy and enveloping interpretation. The solar carnality of ylang-ylang surrounds it, to then make it vibrate with elemi and cinnamon, and a pinch of color with plum. In the wake of deep and material notes of vetiver, vanilla, ambroxan and musk. A soliflor—the first in the Carthusia fragrance collection—full of facets, in which the main note is supported by an architecture that enhances it while enriching the jus with iridescent facets.
The composition, by Luca Maffei, translates into an intense and sensual floriental, open and bright, in perfect Carthusia style. The tuberose lives in a new light. It is no longer the lunar one that, precisely because after sunset its effluvium is even more intense, has contributed to its fame and diffusion especially in the Victorian era, but it is that of the Spring sun in a blossoming Capri, preparing to live a new season, new experiences, new loves."
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
"Don't test it on paper, you will loose the beauty of this perfume. This is a modern take on what perfumes like Femme di Rochas were, a femme-fatale, heavy, bold creation, but requires the warmth of the skin to bloom. Instead, on paper seems a flat fruity sweet something like we all know it's is full out there. But it's a Maffei's, after all."
"This isn't for a young girl. It's a mature woman's fragrance. A woman who knows who she is, what she wants and isn't shy about getting it, although in the most elegant classy way. It is as the reviewer above said 'super sexy, super dark and super feminine'. It doesn't smell like tuberose on me, but it does smell fantastic and it lasts for hours."
"This Tuberose is fruity and bubbly, it is cute and young. Dior's Poison is her mother."
ABOUT THE BRAND
Legend has it that in 1380 the father prior of the Carthusian Monastery of St. Giacomo was taken unaware by the news of the arrival in Capri of Queen Giovanna d’Angiò and so made a flower arrangement with the most beautiful flowers of the island. The water was not changed for three days and, when the flowers were thrown away, the prior noticed that the water had acquired a fragrance unknown to him. He went to the father alchemist who traced the origin of this scent back to the “Garofilum silvestre caprese”. That water became the first perfume of Capri.
