This place is awesome... upscale feeling, without making you feel like you don't belong/can't afford anything. The perfume is amazing - very high quality (does not irritate the skin) and very unique scents that you could not find anywhere else. TRY THE LEMON PERFUME... "Mediterraneo"......More

My cousin is from Salerno, near Positano, so she brought me to their store in Positano to buy perfume. If the locals love it you know its good. I bought cologne for my husband, home fragrance, locally made lip glosses etc.

Highly recommended perfumery when visiting Capri. Good range which caters to a range of tastes and different from the usual 'commercial' range of perfumes.

I bought the classic Mediterraneo scent and love that it reminds me of the lemons of Capri - different than any other perfume I wear. The small bottle fits just fine in a US toiletries case for security.

Came across Carthusia by chance on day visit to Capri. It was an interesting and nice experience to sample the perfumes. Helpful and patient staff. Subsequently visited the Carthusia shop in Sorrento. The young lady was very pleasant, patient and helpful.
