Why Do My White Flowering Lilacs Smell Bad?

I'm having trouble with my lilac trees. I bought 2 purple lilac trees and when they flower now, the flower is white and smells awful. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong? Thanks.

Sounds like you got lilacs that were not labeled correctly. There is probably not much you can do to change them; it is just the kind they are. Some types don't have as good or as much scent as the old-fashioned lilacs.
