Novaya Zarya Perfume Shop, Moscow

"Krasnaya Moskva" ("Red Moscow") is a Russian perfume with a history. As well as the red flag and the portrait of Gagarin, it is a symbol of the Soviet époque, especially for ladies. Created in 1913 by Henri Brocard, an outstanding Moscow perfumer, French by origin, it was known under the name "The Empresses' Bouquet" and was dedicated to Maria Fyodorovna (Danish princess Dagmar), mother of Nikolay II, the last Russian emperor.

Later on, after the Revolution, the Brocard perfumery was renamed "Novaya Zarya" ("The New Sunrise"), and its chef-d-oeuvre also received a new name - Red Moscow. It is said to have been highly appreciated by the famous Russian actress Lyubov Orlova and the first woman in space Valentina Tereshkova. Even today, its bottle remains the same as it was designed at the dawn of the Soviet era. Nonetheless, in the 21st century, "Krasnaya Moskva" remains popular with Russian women. It has a strong and long-lasting fragrance with such opening notes as neroli and bergamot, jasmine and rose and ilang-ilang as basic notes and the trail composed of iris, vanilla and tonka beans.

This sensual and feminine perfume is sold in the Novaya Zarya stores located in the heart of the city. Limited editions of "Krasnaya Moskva" clad in more sophisticated souvenir bottles can be found in the brand store situated at Gostiny Dvor (4, Ilyinka str), which is close to the Kremlin and Red Square. Other shops of the network are located at 12, Nikitsky Avenue and 43, Arbat street.
