THE HISTORY OF CARESTIA ARCADE BEAUTY
Carestia Arcade Beauty, the inventor of fragranced cards
The year is 1883. The Carestia family moves to be near the city of perfume. Recognized for its expertise in lithography, the small printing workshop contributes to helping historic perfumers grow with innovative solutions: posters, labels, brochures, boxes…
Three generations later, Carestia presents the idea for the blotter to its customers. The major brands flock towards this new marketing approach that allows the consumer to test a fragrance in an instant and remember it forever.
A new era for fragrance discovery
