Novaya Zarya is a perfume and cosmetics producing factory in Moscow, Russia. It used to be Henri Brocard’s factory in Moscow (i.e. before the Revolution in 1917) and was later nationalized and given a new, Soviet-like name – Novaya Zarya (the New Dawn).
Russian cosmetics market existed long before Brocard’s arrival on the scene: a huge French factory, A.Rallet & Co., founded by Alfonse Rallet in 1843, had already successfully operated in Moscow. However, Rallet’s factory mainly produced costly pomades and fragrances. After the Revolution, the factory was nationalized and got a new name as well, Svoboda (‘Freedom’), and it is still in operation.
Brocard, happy with his initial success in Russia, started to produce high-quality cosmetics, adding essential oils and glycerine in hopes of winning a more high-profile clientele. Among others, he received shipments of the aromatic raw materials from Roure Bertrand Fils, a company based in Grasse, France.
The factory is now being developed by its perfumer and CEO, who truly believes in future success of Russian perfumery in general. The company's most famous perfume is Krasnaya Moskva, known to every citizen of the former Soviet Union and its name is full of emotional associations.
Designer Novaya Zarya has 35 perfumes in our fragrance base. The earliest edition was created in 1978 and the newest is from 1979. The nose who worked on Novaya Zarya fragrances is Auguste Michel.
