    I had searched high & low for this discontinued fragrance by Myrurgia, my luck paid off recently with large unused full bottle of the cologne. Everything about this perfume is understated from the unusual design of the bottle/flask to the traditional fresh citrus opening of early 20th century colognes. Top hesperidic notes of mandarin & lemony verveine are followed with a soft spicy carnation and rose heart interspersed with hints of lilac, heliotrope & jasmine drying down to a base slightly reminiscent of mown hay, a touch of civet and the creamiest east Indian santal imaginable. I do not detect any leathery quinolones or tobacco resin in this lesser strength of the perfume although the dry down is persistent lasting for several hours. I believe the extrait is a great deal more carnal & exotic than my sample, the search continues for this holy grail of early Spanish perfumery.

    Embrujo de Sevilla is an incredible leather, with tobacco (as it seems to me) and flowers. More floral than Tabac blond, less "dirty" than Lanvin Scandal and deeper than Chanel Cuir de Russie, it is an unknown masterpiece made by Jean Carles, the King of parfumers. Nowadays , it's very difficult to find, but it's worth a try! This is another work of Jean Carles, at the same period that he was about to make Tabu, Canoe or Shocking...
