Twin Peaks Inspired "WONDERFUL AND STRANGE Liquid Music Fragrance Trio" by Seattle Perfumer Christi Meshell to Benefit David Lynch Foundation

Posted on May 21, 2017 by Matriarch Blog

House of Matriarch is pleased to announce what Perfumer Christi Meshell is calling one of the "most exciting projects" she has ever released.

SEATTLE, WA:  25 years have passed since Laura Palmer, the troubled coquette who worked at the perfume counter of Horne's Department Store in David Lynch's Twin Peaks, made her impression on the minds and hearts of an entire generation.  Since, the resounding echoes and haunting chords of the soundtrack have kept her memory and the mysteries surrounding her death brewing in the collective consciousness. They also ignited the creative inspiration for a collection of perfumes both "wonderful and strange".

Residing near the Snoqualmie Forest where the series was filmed, our Perfumer has a deep knowing of how the dark woods depicted in the series would smell.  In a video of Angelo Badalamenti, the composer of the famous soundtrack, he recounts the story of how he and David Lynch sat together at his piano to co-compose the soundtrack.  As she followed along, Christi began to imagine the aromas which seemed to accompany the famous question still being asked:  "Who killed Laura Palmer?"

Twin Peaks Inspired Liquid Music Fragrance Trio

Future's Past
Enter the enchanted forest at it's darkest - and brightest.  Sandarac, tamarack and balsam set a deep and haunting baseline - A minor chord of Snoqualmie Forest evergreens beckons as owl feathers flutter above the damp earth.

The Red Room 
Deep and powerful chord of western red cedar heartwood with melodic overtures of black currant over a baseline of leather, copaiba and incense.  Yes, this is a red perfume, naturally colored by the red cedar heartwood.  
100% Natural.
   
A World of Blue
Base notes of oud and natural heliotropin (both forbidden and rare) provide structure for the minor chord of coumarinic deerstongue and blue lotus.  A cloud of powdery iris beurre wisps in like a velvety dream, further softening the mood.
99% Natural.

M is for MTV - House of Matriarch Selected for 2015 MTV Movie Awards

Posted on March 19, 2015 by Matriarch Blog

House of Matriarch returns to the red carpet, in association with The Artisan Group, for the invitation-only luxury celebrity gift lounge hosted by GBK Productions on April 10-11, 2015 at an exclusive location in Hollywood, California in honor of the upcoming 2015 MTV Movie Awards.

Matriarch's 100% natural Super Natural Collection Giftset will be prominently featured at the event and all attending celebrities will be gifted the most popular artisan fragrances Bohemian Black, Coco Blanc, and Forbidden. This event will also be attended by nearly fifty press and media outlets who will also receive the perfumes. Fragrance does not usually make the cut at these events, and this is a first for natural fragrances, so this is a huge honor for the Seattle-based fragrance house, established by Christi Meshell in 2008.

More about House of Matriarch:

We believe in the power of fragrance to connect us to the past, harness our being to the present and help us to write the future. House of Matriarch is a high perfumery rooted in the rich history of magic and alchemy speaks that language – one that is luxuriously mysterious, powerfully rendered and recalling the craft of the apothecary.

Our language speaks to the past but carries our community into the future, to the pinnacle of the highest art of perfume-making. Hearkening back to the mysteries of thousands of years of science, discovery and artful application, and gathering that legacy to a renewed modernist appraisal of the futurist art of high perfumery. Matriarch is as richly layered as our expression in the magical alchemy of the marvelously detailed fragrances that we create.

Our Perfumer, Christi Meshell, is “the Nose” behind some of the most compelling fragrances now enlivening the niche fragrance scene. Her visionary versatility, as both Creative Director and Fragrance Composer, allows her to single-handedly develop a concept from initial inspiration through final display. A mystical heritage since her childhood has evoked Christi’s lifelong study of natural correspondences, sacred cosmology and plant medicine, a knowledge which finds practical application in the Matriarch fragrance creation and the storytelling of their innovative journey.
