Shop Name: Duchi s krylami
Street Address: 6, Ploshad' Edinoroga, wizarding area of St Petersburg
Owner: Viktor Afanasyevich Krylov
Employees: Svetlana Vladimirovna Krylova, Oksana Viktorovna Krylova, Galina Viktorovna Krylova
Hours: Monday to Saturday, 9 am to 6 pm
Merchandise: Perfumes, lotions, lip balm and other beauty products
The Krylovs' shop is located in the wizarding area of St Petersburg. The Unicorn's Place is the centre of this area and well known to most wizards of the region. The buildings are mostly made of white stone and most of the rooves are blue with golden decoration. In fact the small place looks like it was part of a fairy tale. However, upon further examination it becomes obvious that appearances are deceiving, there are many people selling illegal goods on the street and not all shops are run well anymore these days. While the place once was the heart of wizarding St Petersburg it seems like its reputation is getting worse.

The Krylov shop looks just like most houses from the outside - it has a white wall, a blue roof and some golden decorations. In the past there have been more golden accessories but both the family and some thieves have removed them to exchange them for money. The shop has two windows and both are decorated with the products available in the shop. There are, for example, quite a few flacons and vials exhibited in the window which are bewitched to slowly fly from one side to the other. The idea of the winged flacons comes from the Krylov's surname and is a trademark of all their perfumes.

Inside the shop there is furniture of light wood. The selling area is lit by a multitude of colourful candles and therefore the atmosphere in the shop is rather warm given the light and the actual temperature. The merchandise is exhibited on shelves and tables and looks intriguing due to the harmonic colours that were chosen for the actual products as well as for the packing of them. In the centre of the shop there's a shelf that is round and accessible from all sides. It has several levels and the most popular goods are shown on it. Among those are the scents that have side effects on people, some might cheer people up slightly, others make people feel intrigued with the person using the perfume etc. There are also the bestselling lip balms such as the "Winged Lips" which has a similar effect as Amortentia, just to a much smaller degree. Furthermore there are a couple of lotions and soaps available.

All products of "Duchi s krylami" have a winged flacon on them which is the logo used for all products made by the family.
