Please understand that this website is not affiliated with any of the perfume companies written about here in any way, it is only a reference page and repository of information for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the company brand might see it.

White Lilac by Mary Chess c1932

White Lilac by Mary Chess was launched in 1932.  Mary Chess used only natural ingredients in her perfumes, and her first perfume was White Lilac.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does this smell like? it is classified as a floral fragrance for women. I am reviewing this perfume from a 1950's Perfume Nip. The perfume has notes of lilacs, lily of the valley, jonquil, wisteria, and more lilacs.
  • Top notes: citrus, wisteria, lilac
  • Middle notes: lilac, lily of the valley, jonquil
  • Base notes: sandalwood

A 1940's ad reads:
"Mary Chess White Lilac perfume- poignant as Spring's twilight."

A 1964 ad reads:
"White Lilac very rich and sweet and much loved by young women and brides."

Fate of the Fragrance:

By 1965 it seems that White Lilac disappeared.
