Lonely Planet review
Allegedly, Capri’s famous floral perfume was discovered in 1380 by the Prior of the Certosa di San Giacomo. Caught unawares by a royal visit, he arranged a floral display of the island’s most beautiful flowers for the queen. Three days later, he went to change the water in the vase only to discover that it had acquired a mysterious floral odour. This became the base of the perfume that’s now sold at this smart laboratory outlet.
