    Can you translate the Russian language? Giveaway Incentive! Help me identify this fragrance by...

    Thread Starter 

    I am trying to translate and identify this vintage fragrance. I believe it is Russian, a ladies scent and on the bottle bottom is the sequence (1-M 10). Just FYI, I get a strong civet, jasmine and ambergris composition that is fairly linear, but quite nice.

    Below are some pictures, optimized just for the label w/Adobe Image Ready, that I hope may help?

    If you are the first to identify or narrow down the frag by translating the label, I will send you either a very nice sample pack or your choice of a vintage fragrance!!

    PM me any questions and I will answer back ASAP.

    Thank You and Stay Fragrant My Friends!

    Very Impressive! One more question...can you make out the symbols and translate what is at the top of the label- perhaps the house or maker??

    My offer still stands as a gentleman of honesty. Just PM me your addy and your choice, sample pack or vintage frag?

    Thanks Redhourse!

    Randomly found u guys when searching for substitutions for petitgrain.... saw this question and had to put my two cents....

    on the top of the bottle it says Parfume.... they were made by Novaya Zorya (New Dawn, before the revolution Brokkar and K) for a loooooong while it was one of the few perfumes available in Soviet Russia...

    :) Just goes to show you....you never know when those strange things you know (how to read the Russian alphabet) will come in handy. Too funny.

    Now I'm off to write about Wooznib's samples for the sample pass.

    A perfume from Soviet Russia...nice! I heard there were two womens' fragrances you could choose from. This and one other, but I don't know what the other one was, or how true that story is. I am glad you like it!

    Oh my!!!! Thank u !! how unexpected!!!

    Here is what Wiki knows about the perfume (I checked the Russian version first, it's pretty much the same)

    Krasnaya Moskva (Russian: Красная Москва, literally Red Moscow) was the first Soviet-made perfume.

    Its origins are dispute. It may date from before the Russian Revolution of 1917 as Le Bouquet Préféré de l'Impératrice (The Empress’ Favorite Bouquet’), a fragrance created in Henri Brocard's factory in 1913 (and later given a Russian name); or it may have been created in 1925, after Brocard's factory was nationalized and renamed Novaya Zarya in 1922.[1]Polina Zhemchuzhina served as the head of the factory from 1930-1932.[1]

    With limited competition, Krasnaya Moskva became very popular and was widespread in the Soviet Union and, after the Second World War, throughout the Eastern Bloc. Its ubiquitousness during socialism led many to shun it now that a greater variety of choices are available. The fragrance survived the fall of the Soviet Union and is still being produced in today in the Danilovsky District, Moscow.[1]

    The fragrance is that of a floral chypre.[1

    Oh gosh, thank you, really, but there's absolutely no need for that. Glad I could help, that's all. It was but couple simple words - and I didn't know anything about the fragrance or its history either, likeKrasnayaMoskva was able to help you with. That's worth more than a two-word translation. ;-)

    Coincidentally, I had to have some documents translated couple weeks ago from Polish to English. Even though I can fluently speak/read/write Polish, lawyers insisted that it had to be done by someone who does this sort of thing for a living. So off it went to some company that translated a few pages at $0.11 per word. What could have taken me 30 minutes, took this other company two weeks and couple thousand dollars. Ugh.
