Meet the Fragrance
YVRA 1958 is reminiscent of the classic, transparent Eau de Colognes, that dominated the sixties and seventies of the last century. But YVRA 1958 is more aromatic, vibrant and longer-lasting than a classic citrus fragrance.
L’Essence de L’Essence opens with a vivid and extravagant note with the dominant use of energetic Calabrian citrus. Its transparent character is further enhanced by sparkling hints of orange flower for a mysterious hint. YVRA 1958 concludes with a lingering finale consisting of cedar, patchouli and the complex, lusty tones of Tonka bean.
YVRA 1958 is a scent with a real lust for life…

Best scent ever!
I was very pleased with Yvo's bold, unorthodox and fun scent 'l'Essence de Distance'. It took as much balls to make as it takes to wear ;-))

Great product, smells amazing, good customer service to rectify my query
At first I never imagend to buy a fragrance at this price.... But then again, it was a hard, difficult and stressing year. I really deserved this, for once in my life I presented myself this gift. And what a gift this is! It is worth every penny. At first a fresh scent with hints of lemon/citrus... After a while this scent becomes more mature in the second layer, more masculine and more robust. The third layer stays on for the rest of the day, even without noticing this by me, I really do get compliments all the time. Which brand is this? What are you wearing? Outstanding in many ways.... A great discovery at the end of this year! This gives me hope and strength for 2021, here we come!
bought as xmas present ,but great fragrance and service
