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.
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.

See all nine fragrances and their descriptions below, then pick up a bottle for yourself or as a gift here.
Rare, magnificent and auspicious, the albatross bird is the captain of the air. The natural marine accord celebrates that spirit, the fresh coolness of where the ocean meets the sky. Salty Salish Sea breezes meet the soft warm notes of cork, driftwood and cottonwood evoking images of seafaring vessels, creosote-soaked timber, and barnacle covered hulls. Set your sights on the horizon, feel the wind in your sails.
Black No 1 Leather
A living work of liquid art, our first cult classic was launched as BLACKBIRD in 2012. Named “SEXIEST SCENT” at the International Artisan Fragrance Awards, TOP MEN’S FRAGRANCE by Men’s Journal Magazine and BEST OF THE WEST by Sunset Magazine, this worldly and penetrating perfume contains hundreds of exotic natural essences and has a living spirit of it's own.
Black No. 1 has evolved in it's identity while retaining all of her original magnificence; only the name of this perfume has evolved; the formulation is exactly the same. Renaming a top selling fragrance is an unprecedented act in the fragrance "business", however Black No. 1 captivates the wearer to a deep and enchanting mystique as it whispers "anything is possible".
Coco Blanc Gourmand
The “Gourmand Gold Standard”, an irresistible vanilla musk. The perfume explorer does not need to be a fan of exotic niche fragrances to enjoy this perfume. It is a universally loved accord of the highest quality noble materials which are lactonic, vanillic and warmly appealing to almost everyone. Not overly sweet like mainstream gourmands, Coco Blanc is exceptionally long-lasting on the skin and perfectly unisex in the dry down, finishing with soft woods and spicy organic vanilla.
The ultimate incense perfume: massive and timeless. Revered across cultures. The primaeval depths are almost inexplicable and volumes have been written praising this classic arrangement of two key notes: frankincense and myrrh. Resinous, dry and cold with alternating warm and spicy nuances, it’s a whole universe encapsulated in each waft of scented breeze.
Forbidden White Floral
Rooted in layers of historically feared and even outlawed aromatics, Forbidden begins with a erogenous absinthe and damiana opening, then sweetly drops into an intoxicating heart accord of tuberose, wild mushroom and papyrus. A smooth finish of precious woods, snake leather and sweet baked earth complete this long-lasting unisex perfume.
A fragrance born of the Northwest. Dream-inducing lavender fields mingle with towering cedar trees swaying gently in the misted Pacific breeze. An underlying sense of exploration, imbued through a Vetiver base note, keeps this ancient Northwest spirit youthful and exotic. Madrona, whose bark itself look like it was forged of polished bronze, lends more than just a note to this fragrance — it lays the roots of its name.
Genuine ambergris is sparkling, earthy, musky and effervescent: grounded yet ethereal. Resins lend an exotic oriental accord and regal coolness to the amber. Natural honey adds a liquid gold note, enhancing the spicy and leathery qualities that this exquisite amber perfume offers. Dancing between a fresh cleanness and the salty patina of ocean-kissed skin, this fragrance Is an intimate experience, improving throughout the day as it washes you with nuanced waves. Subtle by design.
Sex Magic Precious Woods
A blend of thirteen varieties of cedar, exotic sandalwood, and a touch of oud. Unquestionably vivid and sonorous, these woods sing with the ancient resonant voice of the aboriginal didgeridoo. These aromatics hearken back thousands of years and their smoky venerable tones play upon the collective unconscious of the wearer. They feel distinctly Tantric in their power. Gandhi root and leather add drama, depth and offer great silage.
Trillium Fresh Floral
An invitation to an enchanted tea party. Steeped in a long and noble history, this tea and white floral fantasy fragrance was brewed to capture the spirit of the elusive Great White Trillium flower. Fresh in its unfolding; tart notes from rooibos, exotic flares from aglaia and mimosa and a touch of coffee flower meld, as double blooming Roman chamomile dances above.

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.
