Dedicated to the goddess in whose honor Tiberius built the most magnificent of the imperial villas on Capri, “IO” is a dynamic and decisive mélange, sophisticated and modern, bringing together the mature, sweet notes of wild fig with the exhilarating, stimulating notes of tea leaves.
The fragrance opens with a citrus tone of Sicilian lemon and wild mint, star anise, and orange brazil. The heart is animated by a green and flowery tone marked by the fig, the lemongrass Ceylan and apple flowers hovering from leather and marine base.
We like the overall feel of this scent; clean and uplifting. The minty and bracing herbal bitterness play hide and seek with a fresh and fruity fig. That makes this scent very interesting.

In 1948 the Prior of the Carthusian Monastery on the breathtaking Italian island of Capri discovered a volume of historic perfume formulas dating back to a time when the monks living there began to discover the exquisite aromatics of the herbs and blossoms on the island. With the Pope's consent, the formulas were revived by a local chemist and developed into a unique range of fragrances called Carthusia. Today, Carthusia continues to practice its centuries-old knowledge and has an indivisible bond with Capri – the result of zealous and professional research into components derived exclusively from Capri’s environment.
