Welcome!

Please understand that this website is not affiliated with any of the perfume companies written about here in any way, it is only a reference page for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the company brand might see it.

Embrujo de Sevilla by Myrurgia c1933

Embrujo de Sevilla by Myrurgia: launched in 1933. Created by Jean Carles.


Fragrance Composition:



So what does it smell like? It is classified as an aldehydic woody floral fragrance for women. It starts off with a powdery aldehydic top note, followed by an elegant floral heart, resting on a sensual, powdery, woody base.
  • Top notes: aldehydes, mandarin, lemon, bergamot, neroli, strawberry, peach
  • Middle notes: carnation, rose, lilac, heliotrope, jasmine, rosewood, lily of the valley, ylang ylang, iris
  • Base notes: ambergris, tonka bean, vetiver, sandalwood, cedar, patchouli, civet, tobacco, leather, benzoin, vanilla

Bottles & Packaging:





Fate of the Fragrance:


Discontinued, date unknown. Still being sold in 1973.

I believe that this may have been reformulated at some point as the notes in my 1984 Haarmann & Reimer book are listed as:
  • Top notes: aldehydes, lemon, bergamot, neroli, strawberry, peach
  • Middle notes: carnation, rose, jasmine, rosewood, lily of the valley, ylang ylang, orris
  • Base notes: Ambrein, tonka bean, vetiver, sandalwood, benzoin, vanilla
