L'Essence de Présence

from 500+ reviews

Regular price €135.00 Sale

Eighteen months after the successful international launch of the scent YVRA 1958 L’Essence de l’Essence, Yvo van Regteren Altena presented in 2017 his second long-anticipated fragrance: YVRA 1979 L’Essence de Présence. In his second scent, the headier timbre of woody and aromatic ingredients conjures up a very different mood. It shares its predecessor’s originality and elegance, with the addition of a warmer, more potent, mysterious undertone.

The fragrance is Yvo's dreamy reflection of the year 1979 when he lived in Florence. A year in which everything came together: a love affair, an eye for elegance and the appreciation for high-quality raw materials that are indispensable for a perfect perfume as for a good dish.

Top notes are lemon, black pepper; middle notes are patchouli  and cedar and base notes are amber, moss and musk. L’essence de Présence is warmer and more powerful; it is both elegant and comforting.

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

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