Dedicated to a man who eschews excess but likes to charm, Carthusia Uomo is an elegant fragrance that reminds one of the open sea, Russian leather and the softest cashmere. Carthusia Uomo is a classic fresh scent, made from vibrant citrus notes blended with wild rosewood in an irresistible woody-marine harmony. A light, timeless men's fragrance for the modern gentleman. Made in Capri, Italy


"Wow Carthusia Uomo is a blast of geranium and green leaves. It smells sophisticated and clean. Balanced by soft musk, woody notes and citrus. Very, very masculine. Very well made and long lasting."

This is a classic 'green' fragrance for men. The dominant notes are oakmoss, cedar and geranium, giving a clean, crisp, gentlemanly and classic fragrance that performs well with respect to longevity and projection.

This fragrance fits in a bracket of a 'classic' fragrance style. It could not be called a modern fragrance. However, it certainly does not have a dated feel, owing to the crisp, fresh and clean nature of the fragrance. My opinion is that this sits in the same ballpark as Green Irish Tweed (not in terms of scent similarity, but rather in terms of the style of fragrance) however my feeling is that this creed is highly dated and stuffy, whereas Uomo is not.

This fragrance works very well in the office owing to its clean nature. While musk features as a base note, I would say that this is not overpowering, meaning it is suitable for indoor use in an office as well as outdoors. I find that this cuts through the cold particularly well, and as such it is my favourite choice for colder, windier days when spending time outdoors. It is quite versatile.

My last point on this fragrance is that my girlfriend (26yo) absolutely loves this on me. It is a manly, strong, clean and fresh scent that she enjoys a great deal.

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.
