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.

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.
