YVRA 1991 is an antidote to life online. The fragrance harks back to times before 1991, the era of independence from the digital and online world. Back in the day we travelled and explored based on our own knowledge, intuition and senses. YVRA 1991 links up with our pre digital heritage.
I’ve never smelled such an intensive scent! It takes you down in the deepest hell and lets you uprise in a beautiful heaven. Pure deepest erotic!
Unlike any other scent I ever owned. Powerful, captivating, long lasting. Would immediately buy a bigger bottle if available.
This is the stuff made for a true gentleman
Flakon super für unterwegs und von exzellenter Qualität
Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit dem Duft! Riecht außergewöhnlich und man wird darauf angesprochen! Kein Duft „von der Stange“! Ein bißchen müsste noch an der „Ausdauer“ des Duftes gefeilt werden, dass er etwas länger hält!
Just perfect. I expected something special and it really is
Heerlijke geur in een mooi, handig mee te nemen verpakking,
Don´t know which one out of the 3 scents is gonna be my favourite.
I guess it´s the 1979 because it´s closest to my year of birth.
But let me finish the samples and I will tell you :-)
The Pack gave me a good idea of the fragrances. It enabled me to my the one of my liking. Otherwise it os not possible to purchace such things online. Thank you.
Perfect men's fragrance. The fragrance is a dreamy reflection of the year 1979 smells earthy, spicy, woody, camphor-like, wet earth and green leaves. You can also detect slightly leathery and even sweet notes. It has a dark character and brings depth and sensuality to perfumes.
Top: Lemon, Black Pepper
Heart: Patchouli and Cedar all, patchouli gives a perfume a soothing and luxurious touch.
Base: Amber, Moss and Musk.
In his second fragrance, the heavier timbre of woody and aromatic ingredients evokes a very different mood.
Love the deep Rich smell of this fragrance
It's great. No messing about. I'm here. They know. And I like it.
Very sophisticated scents, a pleasure to wear them, not invasive, personally I prefer your first and second releases. Anyway, beautiful all of them.
I like the subtile smell, rich and long lasting effects.
I would just go ahead and buy the normal sized bottle instead of this. You will not be disappointed.
Meet the fragrance
YVRA 1991 offers a firm and refreshing overture thanks to bergamot, petit grain and rosemary. After about an hour and a half this is transcended by a warm dry down, thanks to ingredients like oakmoss, cedarwood, sandalwood and amber.
The new fragrance perfectly fits the existing range of YVRA products. It’s more powerful than 1958, more transparent than 1979 and commercially more attractive than the heavy niche scents 1965 and 1500.

Box and bottle design
YVRA 1991 is packed in a mouse-grey box designed as a visual incentive to digitally detach ourselves. The sides are finished in WiFi symbols showing no reception.
The only WiFi symbol with reception is crossed out. When opening the box, you will see portraits of the three leading men of our online life; Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos and Steve Jobs. Their portraits also bear a red cross with which the tone has been set.
In the box itself, when lifting the bottle, the apotheosis of the packaging design follows. But this experience you will have to undergo yourself.
MEET THE CREATOR
Was it predestination gently prompted by that oh, so prominent nose which graces generations of family members? Yvo van Regteren Altena (Haarlem, 1958) has always followed his nose.
