The first ever Carthusia fragrance, inspired by a visit to Capri in 1380.

A breath of elegance and radiance from this prized perfume.

Comme Des Garcons Black Pepper

An electric collision of molecules: the crash of spicy pepper seeds suspended within infinite darkness. A scent that is hypnotic, addictive and defiantly bold. Warm, dry Madagascan pepper cracks against fiery Cedar wood. Rich, fragrant Akigalawood (Patchouli, Agarwood) fuses with the caramel resin of Tonka bean. Precious seeds and opulent woods blend in blazing harmony, laced with a musky accord. A profound reinvention of familiar exoticism: spice is deconstructed, destabilized, decoded.

In preparation for a night out, a series of discrete, habitual gestures is captured in a perfume evoking the olfactive balance between airy rice powder and sumptuous red lipstick.

Flashes of bright light from vetiver, tangerine and bergamot represent the city, a highlight against an otherwise dark and dusky fragrance.
