Krasnaya Moskva Perfume – Scent of Legend

Thursday, 02 December 2010

Krasnaya MoskvaThis scent was favorable for millions of women and still in XXI century it is also loved by many of them. Krasnaya Moskva is the perfume to symbolize the epoch and nostalgia for some women while others find it as the sign of conservative and outdated taste. The perfume loved by the Empress Maria Fedorovna, mother to Nikolay II was created by Henri Brocard in the early XX century and a century later it found the way to hearts of those who really appreciate the elegance in the classic glass bottle.

The year 1913 – the legend of romance

The perfume Krasnaya Moskva is so legendary that the date of origin and the name of the perfumer who created the incredible bouquet turned into the beautiful history. Henri Brocard owned one of the reputed companies, The Brocard Empire, to the early XX century, he was awarded as the winner at various international contests though he dreamt about one title, the Royal Supplier for the Imperial Majesty. That idea seized him totally and by the legend he dreamt of that aroma. When he considered everything in details, he presented the unique gift to the Empress Maria Fedorovna, mother to Nikolay II, to the three hundredth anniversary of the Romanovs Family in 1913 as roses, violets and jasmine cut from the wax and every single flower exhaled its own unique aroma. When blending, the notes of species and herbs, the romantic rose and jasmine gave the unique and incredible scent, the aroma of the first Russian perfume noted in the Russian and World history of perfume. The Empress Maria Fedorovna liked the fragrance to the extent that Henri Brocard was awarded the long-waited title and the fragrance was called the Bouquet of the Empress.

During the period of revolution there were tendencies to get rid of everything which resembled of the previous life style and thus, Henri Brocard supposed the other name to the new government for his company and the fragrance. So, the perfumery was renamed to Zamoskvoretskiy perfumery plant N 5 and some time later it was again renamed to call Novaya Zarya while the perfume was called Krasnaya Moskva since the year 1925.

This is the beautiful legend which is skeptically considered by historians and representatives of the perfumery. In the opinion of fashion critics, such bouquet could never appear in the early twentieth century since it was too adventurous and there were no challenges for that. The time for that blending came a little bit later when the legendary Chanel №5 was created resembling the scent of The Empress Bouquett.

The archives of the perfumery Novaya Zarya still keep the documented evidence of perfume creation – creation of the legend of 20s.

Official legend

The perfume components were made by the best «noses» of new Soviet perfumery Novaya Zarya. This legend, a little bit more of our times, shows the link between the perfume and Polina Zhemchujina, a beautiful woman, the wife to the Minister of Foreign Affairs Vyacheslav Molotov. Polina supervised the perfume composition for Soviet women. And the beautiful woman managed to guess the fragrance to be favored by beautiful ladies of Russia. And she was actually right since millions of Russian beauties loved the scent including celebrities and other stars.

It is not feasible to recognize and determine the only authentic legend out of tow of them for the notes of the first fragrance for Maria Fedorovna are not known while the full blending of components for Krasnaya Moskva is still kept in secret by the famous perfumery.

Does it make sense, though? Whatever the components are, the fragrance is the entire epoch and even today there are people who appreciate the scent and recognize it as the sign of good taste with all the rich colors of femininity, elegance and delicacy.

Bouquet for Krasnaya Moskva

This fragrance refers to natural elite perfume and no synthetic admixtures are added as components. The preliminary notes of the fragrance blend are based upon elegant accords of bergamot and neroli striking the attention to that lady who dared to wear the fragrance. The heart is presented with ylang-ylang, rose and jasmine and the trail is the scent of iris, vanilla and tonka beans.

The perfume Krasnaya Moskva positions itself as the scent for strong-willed, sensitive and confident women. Following celebrities, this scent is in the list of favorable perfume among young women either who cannot perhaps know the history of the fragrance.

Mistaken or not: but how does Chanel #5 have such strong resemblance to Krasnaya Mockba? Does anyone know the history of Coco Chanel in Russia? I think she was strongly influenced by the Russian fragrance and perhaps copied it?
