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 great ‘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, cedar wood, 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.

Available in Full Bottle 100ml or 2x8ml with our Travel set. 

The Travel Set includes 2x8ml, in a handy compact size and reusable case to hold the vial

Perfect perfume, for the perfect man

The smell from this perfume is so Nice

Stephen Hull
4th bottle - 1958 is still the best

OK, you insist I fill out this field. I thought the title was punchy and sufficient. I actually use 1958 in addition to other stuff! I know, sacrilege. I use a deeper base on my body, then 1958 on wrists that flail around and also behind the ears. It adds the fresh note - so at the end, mostly 1958 but something deeper, maybe like 1979...

Soft smell

Soft smell, Intensive the whole day
Ilike it especially in summer

Guy de Groot
One of the nicest parfumes I have

I enjoy spraying it on me in the morning.
Just as I do with the 1965, although that one is like a Bernardus Chardonnay: don’t use it too often, it will bore you. The 1958 doesn’t seem to have that issue. I’m a fan!

Mario van Poppel
Love it!

This is THE best I have ever had.
