Krasnaya Moskva Nostalgia
Krasnaya Moskva (Red Moscow) was a terribly smelling, expensive perfume produced in Russia and sold over the Soviet Block. A Hungarian blogger writes that it smelled as if a busload of Russian ladies had arrived at Budapest. During the periodical anti-alcohol campaigns, when vodka was unavailable, the sales of Red Moscow increased dramatically. But I am badmouthing a memorable product of socialist workers. The fact is that an original bottle of Krasnaya Moskva sells today for thousands of forints.
