Still they kept the name, thus some of the perfumes blended by Myrurgia are stil sold under it, including some classics.
Regarding the brandnames, I also noticed that those in Spanish are somehow a thing of the past - blame it on linguistic fetishism, the need to forget things of the past or whatever. Check these names out:
Flores del Mal - Flowers of Evil
Goyescas - Goyesques (relating to a series of paintings by Goya)
OrgÃ¬a - Orgy (!!!)
Suspiro de Granada - Granada's sigh
SeÃ±orial - I cannot translate for the concept is quite complicated. SeÃ±or means Sir, so it would be like "Sirhood" or an attitude related to that of a person who is very important.
Perfume Alado - Winged Perfume
Morisca - Moorish
Junglas - Jungles
Flor de BlasÃ³n - Blazon's flower
Clavel de EspaÃ±a - Spain's Carnation
Ok, enough inspiration for such names like "Flores del JardÃ¬n los Senderos que se Bifurcan" ("Flowers of the Garden of Forking Paths"), "Azahares del JardÃ*n de la RepÃºblica" (Orange Blossoms from the Nation's Garden), "Desprecio" (Contempt), "Mujer Despechada" (Spiteful woman) or "Percanta que me amuraste mal" (Sinful woman leaving me high and dry).
