L'Essence de Présence 100ml

Regular price €139.00 Sale

YVRA 1979 L’Essence de Présence 100ml shares its predecessor’s originality and elegance, with the addition of a warmer, more potent, mysterious undertone. L’Essence de Présence elicits the balanced, elegant mood typical of classic European perfumes, but with a unique, personal twist.

L’Essence de Présence features a number of Yvo van Regteren Altena favourite ingredients such as bergamot, cedarwood and vetiver. Also enriching the formula is a line-up of earthier components like patchouli and the exotic guaiac wood, also known in Paraguay as palo santo, or sacred wood.

In a world in which new niche scents are launched every week, Yvo van Regteren Altena greatest challenge was to uncover a formula that balances effervescence with a comfortable complexity.

In short, rather than creating yet another iteration on the theme of the classic scents, he strove to craft a fragrance unlike any other.
