    There is no 'magic embouchure' or 'correct embouchure' either. just the one that works for you. everybody's embouchure is different and responds differently to different methods. if you find a way to make playing easier for you and still sound good doing it, then you should stick with it!

    The more I practice, the more I realize that trying to form an embouchure only gets in the way. It's all about air. All we really need to do is close our mouth around the airflow in the way that demands the least possible effort. That's how I feel I'm doing an embouchure these days, but I still have a lot of development and learning to go through. Enough practice can probably cull out all the wrong ways to do it...
