Life, 1934:
"Get yourself a bottle of spicy Spanish perfume, preferably Clavel, a Myrurgia brand."

The New Yorker - Volume 13, 1937:
"Lord & Taylor have Myrurgia scents, which are terrifically Spanish (they include a very heavy carnation called Clavel). The $1 sizes are as cute as anything, for they come packed in wooden cigars with gay tassels, or little bells, or whatever."

The New Yorker - Volume 21. 1945:
"Myrurgia: Maja and Clavel perfumes, designed to bring back memories of Old Spain to you (Altman)."
