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
