NEW NICHE FRAGRANCE RELEASE: ANTIMONY: THE "SMOKY EYE" OF FRAGRANCE - TALISMANIC PERFUMES

Posted on March 15, 2017 by Matriarch Blog

In celebration of the 7th Anniversary of ÇaFleureBon, eight perfumers were invited to create perfumes drawing inspiration from a brief written by the blog's founder and Editor in Chief, Michelyn Camen.  Her request called for a perfume powerful enough to attract good fortune and ward off negativity - even the dreaded curse of the "evil eye".  House of Matriarch created ANTIMONY in response to Michelyn's brief. 

ANTIMONY
ANTIMONY
 
The smoky eye in fragrance form.  Anointing yourself with ANTIMONY is akin to the ancient protective ritual of rimming your eyes with kohl. This talismanic perfume draws from the noble history of cosmetica and the aromatic materials which have been used throughout time to create "eye shadow" - the most magical cosmetic of all. 

Charred frankincense, kewra, henna, Palo Santo, galangal, sandalwood ashes, spikenard, ghee, copal, oud and precious attars of mitti, kadam and rose have all been used to create enchanted cosmetics throughout history. They are all notes used in the formulation of this beautiful talismanic perfume which contains exactly 111 individual notes.  Subtle by design, exotic florals push up from a primitive base to bloom on your skin as they emanate like an ancient wisp of fine bakhoor.

ANTIMONY

These ancient aromas transport the wearer like a magic carpet to a dimension where cosmetics have magical purposes - the very essence of "a glamour."  A nod to a forgotten lifetime when eye shadow was compounded from powdered minerals, oils and the ashes of incense and applied by a shaman or priestess or in wealthy kingdoms, a Court Perfumer.

ANTIMONY

The minerals antimony and malachite have been among those used around the eyes throughout time due to their reflective properties - they ricochet bad vibes like mirrors. Since they are considered toxic (the alchemists would argue otherwise) they have been banned from use in cosmetics. Mystics and folk healers around the world still use them for their prehistorical purposes in treating ailments of mind and spirit and for compounding sacred cosmetics.
 
 

ANTIMONY. Elemental, Magical, Beautiful, and Powerfully Protective

2017 Debut Vintage.  99.9% Natural  (We use the Natural Perfumer's Guild standards of naturalness in rating each component of the perfume - the strictest standards in the world.)
   
ANTIMONY CARTOUCHE
The first 24 50ml bottles of ANTIMONY are adorned with a handmade copper cartouche talisman decorated with the symbols for the element antimony and the letter M. They were designed by our perfumer Christi Meshell and forged in San Diego, California under the influence of the Gemini full moon. The alternate alchemical symbol for the element antimony can be found on the nameplate's letter O.

100% Natural Incense - Perfume yourself with this devotional ritual and set the stage for magic!

Posted on November 01, 2016 by Matriarch Blog

Incense is the "original perfume" - the life breath of poets, dreamers and mystics around the world. Enjoy these burnable 100% natural versions of our most popular perfumes. Cast the perfect mood or perfume yourself with a smoke bath.  Primitive - and sensual.  

Most people don't have the time for (or want the mess of) burning charcoals to enjoy a pure, authentic incense experience.  Cones travel easily, burn cleanly and are as potent as dropping raw incense onto an ember. You will experience a noticeable effect not found with conventional ready to burn incenses due to the mild psychoactive nature of the essences.  

100% Natural Luxury Incense Cones - Powerful natural essences set the mood!

Our incense is 100% natural - purists will recognize the quality and authenticity of our ingredients immediately.  They are extra potent, clean burning and safer than conventional incense for pets and children who share your environment.

Previously containing 24 cones, now we include 33 cones per batch in our gorgeous copper tins.
