CARTHUSIA - 1681 Cologne - 50 ml


Brand: Carthusia

When you want to smell nice, we’ve got you covered.

Description: The 1681 cologne is something totally unique, which is what drew us to it and the brand. Based on the incense used by the Carthusian monks, it smells a little smoky, a little seductive and will make people want to get a little closer. Neroli, iris, black pepper and sandalwood balance out this scent to make it woody and spicy, but not overwhelming. This is a favorite of the Brooklyn Tailors team.

Size: 50 ml

Origin: Made in Italy

About Carthusia: Based in Capri, Italy, Carthusia has been around in some form since the local monks awaiting the arrival of the Queen were forced to keep their flowers on water when the queen’s arrival was delayed due to weather in 1380. Rather than turning swampy, the water took on the scent of the flowers, creating a fantastic cologne that the monks proceeded to develop and sell. They still make their products using the same techniques out of what is considered “the smallest fragrance laboratory in the world” in Capri. We love them for their sense of history and they make a damn good cologne.
