YVRA 1958 is a scent with a real lust for life…
From the dawn of early reminiscence, Yvo van Regteren Altena has reveled in the world of scent. Traveling the globe as a lifestyle journalist, he met perfume virtuosi, the world’s greatest "noses", and was privileged to unlock the secrets behind spellbinding scents.
His knowledge and passion was bottled in 2015, his dream creation – YVRA 1958. This original masterwork combines intriguing ingredients: fleur d’oranger, cedarwood, pepper oil and patchouli. The result is a scent as elegant as it is transparent with a touch more pizzazz than the great classics. YVRA 1958’s woodsy-citrus tones offer the perfect start to a hectic day. Redolent with citrus notes, Van Regteren Altena’s debut cologne hints at new mornings and the refreshing moment after a long distance flight.
YVRA 1958 is reminiscent of the classic, transparent Eau de Colognes, that dominated the sixties and seventies of the last century. But YVRA 1958 is more aromatic, vibrant and longer-lasting than a classic citrus fragrance.
L’Essence de L’Essence opens with a vivid and extravagant note with the dominant use of energetic Calabrian citrus. Its transparent character is further enhanced by sparkling hints of orange flower for a mysterious hint. YVRA 1958 concludes with a lingering finale consisting of cedarwood, patchouli and the complex, lusty tones of tonka bean.
