Myrurgia was a perfumery company established in Barcelona, Spain in 1916, a family business founded by the Monegal family. The company's name Myrurgia was created from the Greek words for "essence" and "industry". With the combined efforts of wealthy chemical industrialist Raymon Monegal, his money, marketing skills, and the artistic talents of his son, the sculptor, Esteve Monegal Prat, their partnership helped to build the company into the successful name that we know today. Esteve earned university degrees in Paris and Barcelona. His perfumery training in Grasse, Paris and with Firmenich in Geneva helped to develop the exquisite fragrances, soaps and other products of the company which gained a major presence in the area surrounding Barcelona, and soon, the world would get a taste of what was so popular in the Catalonian region.
Denyse Beaulieu over at Grain de Musc explains that "Esteve Monegal himself, who apparently worked with François Coty before 1916, is said to have found the names and the notes : he bought his formulas from the Naef & Compagnie laboratory until 1921, when he hired Lucien Maisonier as the technical manager of his factory. We know that the great Jean Carles, of the Roure Laboratory, who worked a lot with Spanish companies (he authored Tabu and Canoë for Dana) composed some of the fragrances from 1927 onwards."
Drawing influences from the places where he was educated, Esteve found inspiration in the Ballets Russe and the exoticism of the Orient. These ideas spawned the names of the following perfumes: Maderas de Oriente, Hindustan, Morisca as well as the design of the presentation box for Besame.
Paying tribute to the beautiful women of his own land, he created Maja, the romantic fragrance reminiscent of black lace and flamenco, an exotic mossy chypre blend of spices with rose, orange blossom and jasmine undertones that truly captured the spirit of Spain. The poster for the Maja line is based on a drawing by artist Eduard Jenner which was inspired by the dancer Carmen Tortola Valencia and a photograph of her show La Tirana (based on the gypsy quarter of Seville).
Other perfumes were directly inspired by the romance of Spain. With names like "Your Window Grille" with Tu Reja, a breathy "Sigh of Granada" in Suspiro de Granada, casting a "Spell of Seville" with Embrujo de Sevilla, the bright sunny neighborhood of Seville famous for its flamenco with Sol de Triana, spicy flowers with "Spanish Carnation" in Clavel de Espana, and a tribute to one of Spain's greatest artists, Goya with Goyesca.
