I recently stumbled across this bottle locally and purchased it. I knew nothing about it except it looked interesting and extremely old. I never would have believed it was from 1933 because of the condition of the bottle and the smell of the juice. The serial number is #3009.
The opening of Embrujo de Sevilla is a dark mixture of Citrus and spicy Carnation. The Carnation evokes the classic masculine aura and has a borderline after shave quality to it. I can only guess that the Neroli, Peach and Strawberry haven't survived old age too well, but one can tell Citrus is in the mix and there's no mistaking the Carnation.
After about 10 minutes, Embrujo de Sevilla begins to exhibit subtle earth tones to compliment the spicy Carnation that's still going strong. There's intermittent whiffs of Rose as the wearings progress and once the scent delves into the base and drydown stages, wood finally straddles aside the spice and earth. This seems to balance out the aroma and gives it even more substance.
Extended drydown is what I deem the best part of this fragrance. It's not "quite" as masculine as it was. The addition of an oriental-woody finish seems to soften it a bit. Sillage is slightly better than moderate and longevity is surprisingly good at over 4 hours on me. Thumbs up from Aromi for this rare, Spanish gem called Embrujo de Sevilla.
