In this guide I will list the various perfume produced by Mary Chess of New York City.

  Established in 1932 by Grace Mary Chess Robinson on Park Avenue, small shop opened in 1933. Became a very important perfumer after she introduced "Chess Pieces" in 1938. These figural perfume bottles were in the shape of chess pieces, an artful play on her name. Mary Chess used only natural ingredients in her perfumes, and her first perfume was White Lilac.  I am sure there might be more perfumes to be found, if I left one out, let me know.

The perfumes of Mary Chess:

  • 1932 White Lilac
  • 1932 Heliotrope
  • 1932 Gardenia
  • 1932 Desert Verbena
  • 1933 Chessmen
  • 1934 Tapestry
  • 1934 Yram
  • 1935 Floral Odeurs
  • 1939 Carnation
  • 1941 Elizabethan
  • 1942 Strategy
  • 1946 Song
  • 1956 Souvenir D'un Soir
  • 1958 Chivalry
  • 1960 Tuileries
