Reviews of Krasnaya Moskva / Red Moscow

Blind bought an original Russian vintage of this recently on a whim. This is a potent, heavy, old fashioned, feminine fragrance. It has rich, heavy, first floral and spicy, then floral, then intensely powdery notes, that make it hard for me to picture on anyone but a mature woman of a bygone time. It reminds me of a woman in a fur coat, from many decades ago, and the smell of make-up.
It appeals to the collector in me, and my interest in Russia and Eastern Europe.

I have a very old bottle of Krasnaya Moskva, a very simple, slightly rounded rectangular bottle with a tiny red and gold sticker and a glass stopper; mid-century or thereabouts. According to the consignment shop ladies who sold it to me it came from a very old Hungarian lady who escaped to Sweden in the 'fifties; they, and in turn me, also got a number of other vintage fragrances from her.

The Krasnaya Moskva I have is a sweet and heady floriental, heavy on the rose and carnation with a mildly spicy, vanillic base. It's loud, brash, warm and very powdery. I like carnation notes, I like powder and I like this old-fashioned style in perfume, so I enjoy it very much both on it's own actual merits, as a classic carnation fragrance, and for the historical connotations it carries for me. Well worth a sniff, and maybe more if you like carnation.

This gets the best rating, first and foremost, because my babushka wore this perfume her whole life. When she died I grabbed the bottle off her vanity before anyone could dispose of it. I knew at 10 years old the strong connection between scent and memory. I'm glad I took the bottle.
