IN THIS SET:
L'ESSENCE DE L'ESSENCE
This original masterwork combines intriguing ingredients: fleur d’oranger, cedar wood, pepper oil and patchouli. The result is a scent as elegant as it is transparent with a touch more pizzazz than the great classics.
IN THIS SET:
L'ESSENCE DE EXPLORANCE
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.
IN THIS SET:
L'ESSENCE DE DISTANCE
A fragrance so overpowering, so intense and concentrated that after you spray it on you feel almost unapproachable. The surprising top notes are so thrilling that for a few seconds people around you will respect the 1500mm distance.
I enjoy spraying it on me in the morning.
Just as I do with the 1965, although that one is like a Bernardus Chardonnay: don’t use it too often, it will bore you. The 1958 doesn’t seem to have that issue. I’m a fan!
after trying the samples, i found the perfume i was looking for
It’s fresh and something different than ‘regular’ perfumes.
The quality and storytelling is just fantastic!!
Verwende YVRA 1958 erst seit wenigen Tagen, habe aber im Gegensatz zu denen, die ich früher verwendete schon mehrfach sehr schöne Komplimente dafür bekommen. Habe daher schon nachbestellt.
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!
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
Very sophisticated scents, a pleasure to wear them, not invasive, personally I prefer your first and second releases. Anyway, beautiful all of them.

A message from the founder
As a style and travel journalist, I have immersed myself in the world of seductive scents from an early age. Thanks to my interviews and close contacts with several renowned perfumers, I have been active in the world of niche perfumes myself since 2017. With my scents I aim to offer an inspiring alternative in a world dominated by commercial fragrances. In composing my scents, I am therefore attracted to the world of original thinkers and dandies.
After all, the dandy lifestyle is characterized by individuality and an eye for quality, while usually also being quite extravagant and cosmopolitan. This is exactly what we strive for at YVRA: originality, flamboyance and, of course, always an eye for refinement.
