Well, I could write about Russian perfumes a bit.
Novaya Zarya was a leader of Soviet perfumery, and any vintage perfumes from Soviet era are must-try and often must-buy. Right now they are merely copycats of western perfumes. Krasnaya Moskva (Red Moscow) is their only hit, which had been made in the beginning of XX century and still nice but formula changed dramatically.
Faberlic brand make cosmetics and perfumes, and while it`s MLM company, the scents were made by Pierre Bourdon. And he make it even now, in sight of his retirement.
I`ve got two colognes of Faberlic, they are cheap but classy and gives enough quality. Every cent of their 30 USD scents is spent wisely. The success is built upon the great perfumer indeed.
I have those bottles as gifts in case some foreighners to visit.
Mirra-Lux is another MLM company. And while I don`t care about their cosmetics, they have an excellent range of original perfumes (poor but nice package) made by Alla Belfer, one of the best Soviet and Russian perfumers. Also in my present box - for tourists.
