YVRA 1965 L’Essence de Flamboyance,
created in honour of Porfirio Rubirosa, is a seductive fragrance dedicated to the most famous playboy of the 20th century. Rubirosa was a jet-set pioneer, charmer, race car driver and a talented polo player. He was widely seen to be in the same class as Don Juan and Casanova, and was married to the two richest women in the world.

The fragrance is seductive, sexy and very powerful. A lot of high-quality raw materials refer to Rubirosa’s life. For example, hints of leather (Polo) and an ingredient such as pink pepper honours his nickname - "The Pepper Mill". 

There is bergamot, lemon, orange, incense, cedarwood, musk and lots of patchouli. Sophisticated, refined and very distinctive! 

The strongest link with Rubirosa will be found in the fragrance itself: seductive, sexy and powerful. YVRA 1965 is an intriguing and sultry blend of spellbinding ingredients, rich in precious wood extracts, exciting patchouli and exotic pepper varieties.

YVRA 1965 is an exclusive, intriguing niche fragrance thanks to powerful notes like incense, labdanum, amber and patchouli. In the best playboy traditions, the fragrance has so much power that it will be pleasing the nose all night long.

YVRA 1965 is the ultimate niche fragrance that literally has no equal.

EXCLUSIVE PACKAGING DESIGN 
Master in understatement and taste, Dutch designer Durk Hattink, collaborated with YVRA to create a design which brings the interior of the bottle to the exterior. A bottle to have, to hold, to use and then… to keep. 

L’Essence de Flamboyance is a reference to the lifestyle of Rubirosa. The color of the box is inspired by Rubirosa's Ferrari 500 Mondial Spider, which was designed by the legendary Pinin Farina. The side of the box has a bark-like structure in reference to the oak tree that stopped Rubirosa’s life so promptly. Furthermore Hattink has subtly made a reference to Rubirosa's nickname "The Pepper Mill" and therefore it’s depicted on the inside of the label YVRA 1965.

PORFIRIO RUBIROSA
Rubirosa was a jet-set pioneer, charmer, race car driver and a talented polo player. He was widely seen to be in the same class as Don Juan and Casanova. As all great playboys, Rubirosa executed a sense of danger, romance and adventure. He married the two richest women in the world and many would follow; from Marylin Monroe to Zsa Zsa Gabor. His romantic escapades became so mythical that they resulted in nicknames like "Mister Ever Ready" and thanks to Rubi’s "personal parts department" - "The Pepper Mill".

YVRA

YVRAYVRA is a niche Dutch perfumery brand founded by Yvo Van Regteren Altena, born in 1958.
. Upon his 6th birthday, Yvo realized he had an exceptional sense of smell. When he turned 18, the famous perfumery company IFF offered him a job as a perfumer in New York. Instead, Yvo chose to become a professional cellist and studied at the Florence Conservatory. However, after suffering an injury to his left arm, he decided to turn his career in another direction and began studying law. Yvo later became a journalist, writing mainly about the world of scents and lifestyle.

The world of scent

For more than 30 years, Yvo has traveled the world and documented everything that describes good taste, a decadent lifestyle and the secrets of the world of perfume.

While traveling, he met the world's most famous perfumers and was impressed by their desire to create enchanting fragrance combinations. After a career as a journalist, during which Yvo traveled the world more than 36 times, one dream remained unfulfilled: instead of writing about perfume, he wanted to create his own.

Exceptional compositions

Famous perfumers, including Jean-Claude Ellena from Hermès and François Demachy from Dior and Acqua di Parma, encouraged him to create his own fragrance.

Inspired by the two famous "noses" Yvo designed his first fragrance - YVRA 1958 l’Essence de l'Essence. The perfumer in known for his extravagant and bold style, creating both perfumes and exclusive compositions for home fragrances and other high-quality olfactory works.
