THE YVRA 1958 STORY

Was it predestination gently prompted by that oh, so prominent nose which graces generations of family members? Or was it that beloved uncle who shared the secrets of scents with his young nephew? Nature or nurture, or perhaps a bit of both? The fact remains: Yvo van regteren Altena (Haarlem, 1958) has always followed his nose. His fascination for perfume created a stir when as a teenager he proved his mettle at calling out the names of the most obscure scents while blindfolded.
