Three Flowers by Richard Hudnut c1915

Three Flowers was launched in 1915 by the American perfumer, Richard Hudnut.  Three Flowers was also known as Tres Flores in Spanish speaking countries.

Three Flowers was a complete line of toiletries and by 1964 the fragrance was available in perfume, cologne, brilliantine in both liquid and solid, after bath dusting powder, face powder, talcum powder, cream hair dressing and conditioner, cleansing cold cream, vanishing cream, tissue cream, lipstick, rouge, and cream.

The Three Flowers brilliantine was described as a "luxurious liquid that leaves hair elegantly silken, soft-scented, sparkling."

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It was classified as a floral bouquet fragrance for women.
  • Top notes: lily
  • Heart notes: rose
  • Base notes: violet

It was described in an early advertisement as:

"A powder Bouquet of SCENTED BEAUTY: Roses for ROMANCE, Violets for CHARM, Lilies of the Valley for YOUTH."

Fate of the Fragrance:

Three Flowers has been discontinued since the early 1970s. Today you can only find vintage concentrations, mostly cologne, face powder and brilliantine. The perfume is a bit more harder to find.
