Meet the fragrance
YVRA 1979 is reminiscent of the classic perfumes with a European flair, that dominated the end of the last century. It’s a woody, mysterious and sophisticated fragrance with a long-lasting capacity.
YVRA 1979 strives to offer an alternative in a world dominated by synthetic fragrances that induce a hasty departure in place of a passionate embrace.
YVRA 1979 contains a number of high-quality selected ingredients. It’s an invitingly fragrance, thanks to the mix of patchouli, pepper and mystical woody notes. After an opening cord of bergamot and vétiver, the fragrance will reveal it’s elegant and warm cords of cedar- and Guaiac wood. The tempting thing about this lively and mysterious long-lasting formula, is that both women and men around the globe love to wear it.

YVRA 1958 Travel Set 2x8ml
Since discovering this scent I have definitely become an avid convert.
I have not opened the box as of yet. I have been trying the samples instead. Even though 1958 is a good scent I really liked the 1979 more. The scent was more appealing. Is there anyway I can trade the 1958 for the 1979? Please let me know if there is a difference in price and what address to send the 1958 to.

L'Essence de Présence 100ml
wonderful fragrance with its own character.
Got a subscription for my birthday. Ordered this because my year of birth is 1958. This is really a great scent that will most likely become my favorite. And later I discovered that this was developed by an old classmate. Nice side effect.
Heerlijk zachte zoete parfum.
Wat een fantastische geur. Mannelijk, zwaar, aanwezig, volwassen, alles wat ik zoek in een parfum. Ik heb de filter hier op Parfumado gebruikt om suggesties te krijgen die bij me passen en dit was een schot in de roos.
Houd je van amber, aromatisch, hout, musk, oudh, patchouli en warm kruidig, is dit een absolute must.
Leuke bijkomstigheid is dat je zelden iemand zal tegenkomen die hetzelfde ruikt!
