Most perfumes can be classified in a few different categories, including floral, fruity, and oriental. Many people have several scents that are seasonal in nature. Muskier scents are appropriate during the colder months while sweeter scents are appropriate for warmer months.
Carthusia, an Italian fragrance brand, offers a variety of perfumes and eau de toilettes. All are inspired and embody the essence of Capri at the core. Carthusia Mediterraneo is a rare creation in terms of fragrance. This unique blend of Italian fresh lemon and green tea results in a slightly sweet, vaguely floral, and brightly fruity scent. This is a perfect marriage of smells that are not usually combined.
Carthusia describes this perfume as “Vitality,” which represents nicely the invigorating and fresh essence…leaving the wearing feeling refreshed and energized. Mediterraneo is meant for either men or women as no particular note is overpowering.
Even though the citrus is an undeniable fruity scent, the green tea balances the fruit with a warmer overall smell, which makes it versatile throughout the seasons.
Sample this fragrance at the Anthropologie on Walnut Street in Philadelphia, PA. It is important to try any perfume on prior to purchasing to make sure the scent is right after it dries.
