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 and repository of information 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.

Clavel de España by Myrurgia: launched in 1922.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It is a sweet and spicy floral fragrance for women, with a distinctive carnation note.

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)."

Fate of the Fragrance:
