L’Essence de L’Explorance is the fifth and latest fragrance of the YVRA house. With a powerful, exciting and aromatic fougère character, L’Essence de L’Explorance stimulates the senses with an original and invigorating fragrance. YVRA 1991 is a testament to sophistication and invites us to let out our inner dandy.

1991 is a reference to the year in which the World Wide Web was introduced. Both the packaging and the bottle are beautifully finished with references to our digital dependence. In the last year and a half especially, because of COVID-19, computers and smartphones were our lifelines to the outside world. YVRA 1991 is an antidote to life online. The fragrance harks back to times before 1991, the era of independence from the digital and online world. Back in the day we travelled and explored based on our own knowledge, intuition and senses. YVRA 1991 links up with our pre-digital heritage. YVRA 1991 offers a firm and refreshing overture thanks to bergamot, petit grain and rosemary. After about an hour and a half this is transcended by a warm dry down, thanks to ingredients like oakmoss, cedarwood, sandalwood and amber. The new fragrance perfectly fits the existing range of YVRA products. It’s more powerful than 1958, more transparent than 1979 and commercially more attractive than the heavy niche scents 1965 and 1500.

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.
