Plant-like Hotel Soap That Blows Down Doors
Io goes on like hotel soap -- not the best kind of hotel soap, and not the worst, just an average, thrill-reducing hotel soap that you'd find at an average hotel. In a matter of moments, it turns aromatic so that everyone around you knows you are wearing hotel soap. Then it takes on an aggressive floral edge, a vaguely plant-like component, and infinite silage. The silage is so strong that it chokes you and it threatens to blow doors down. It also induces nausea. Ok, Carthusia. You are the undisputed queen of horrible scents, the leader in the suck-scent category. Oh my aching lungs.

Mint tea and figs
Finally a Carthusia fragrance that suits both men and women.

Io Capri is a beautiful, fresh, clean and exotic blend of mint, tea and wild fig. A touch of soap in this fragrance makes it so perfect for warm weather.

The mint in this fragrance smells nothing like toothpaste or sugared mints. It's more herbaceous, like a mint leaf picked fresh from a plant and then ground into a cup of hot tea with a side plate of figs.

It's a touch green, but nothing grassy or mossy. The rich tea note does tend to dominate, however the scent is rather soft, so it's nothing like the monster Eau Parfumee au The Rouge by Bvlgari which reminds me of teacher's staffrooms.

Io Capri is rather true to the Mediterranean weather; pleasant, wearable and never overbearing. If I were to travel on a cruise-ship tomorrow, this is what I'd choose to wear.

I particularly like this fragrance's rather casual and laid-back approach. It makes me feel comfortable just being me. This fragrance doesn't need to be masculine and/or feminine, sexy, loud or sharp to make a statement. It's beautiful on its own.
