Hindustan by Myrurgia c1922

Hindustan by Myrurgia: launched in 1922.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? I have no published notes on this composition. I would need a sample of the perfume to tell you what it smell like. I would imagine it was an oriental perfume.

Hindustan was available in the following products:
  • Parfum (Extracto)
  • Lotion (Locion)
  • Powder (Polvos)


The clear glass bottle has a triangular shape decorated to the lateral panels with foliage in high relief. It has an stylish tall shape with an attractive stopper.  The full color paper label depicts an exotic oriental dancer "Hindustan Myrurgia Barcelona". The large bottle measures almost 10" high by 2.5" wide. 

It is pictured and mentioned in Masterpieces of the Perfume Industry by Christie Mayer Lefkowith pages 203 and 197.

Fate of the Fragrance:

Discontinued, date unknown. Still being sold in 1931.
