Vintage 1930s Yardley English Lavender Fragrance

Yardley Lavender ad ~ Weldon’s Ladies’ Journal, May 1937 ~ Finnfemme

Yardley Lavender has been around for seemingly forever – since 1770 to be exact – and this is a great ad from 1937. From tea on the Terrace at Westminster when Parliament is in session, the lovable fragrance was the brilliant interpreter of the gay social mood at all daytime and informal evening occasions.

The same exquisite fragrance is present in Yardley Lavender Soap, “The Luxury Soap of the World”. Yardley also made Lavender Face Powder, and Complexion Cream.

Yardley English Lavender eau de toilette is still available today:

    I love Yardley Lavender. I love the scent & color of lavender.
    I made your laundry detergent powder today!
    I also am obsessed with Chanel, Coco Chanel is my absolute favorite! Thanks for your blog!

    Hi Krista!
    Thank you for your kind words. Hope the detergent turned out okay! We are kindred spirits when it comes to Chanel. ♥
