Perfume Pharmer New Natural Fragrance Review: Bohemian Black

Posted on January 16, 2014 by Matriarch Blog

“Beauty Will Save The World” Christi Meshell, Perfumer House of Matriarch, New Perfume Bohemian Black ~ Review by Monica Miller

Bohemian Black is an incredibly impressive perfume. Showcasing Christi Meshell’s perfume Art Bohemian Black Sparkles and shines like a Black Opal surrounded by black velvet and rose gold. The ravishing floral bouquet is set in a creamy woods and amber base giving the dry down of this perfume a silk satin decadence.

 

Simply put Bohemian Black is a Masterpiece. I would easily and quickly recommend women (and men) of quality (and you know who you are) to try a sample or mini spray of Bohemian Black even if you have never found an all natural perfume that blew you away. I can see this perfume becoming the signature scent of sophisticated alternative lifestyle enthusiasts, those who enjoy the beauty of nature in all her forms.

That being said I do not believe that this perfume will be limited to people who only wear natural. Tonality wise Bohemian Black reminds me of classic fine oriental type perfumes. Very seductive. And why not a studded leather bracelet scented with Bohemian Black? They are available from House of Matriarch.

Best Indie Perfume House of 2013: House of Matriarch.

CaFleureBon The Best (And Worst) Fragrances of 2013 

Best Indie Perfume House of 2013: House of Matriarch

MB: Perfumer Christi Meshell truly stepped up her game this year and her House of Matriarch had a spectacular year of creativity. It started with The Maj and ended with Sacre Tabac Part 1; in between was Blackbird, Woo, Entendre, Lucid and the fantastic Achtung Collection. Incredible year for Ms. Meshell where she really created a brand identity for House of Matriarch.

MC: That is exactly what I would have written, almost to the word, but must add, the House Of Matriarch began its transformation last year with Forbidden, which was a special project between The Natural Perfumer's Guild and CaFleureBon for Ophiuchus. Don't forget Coco Blanc and a wonderful website redesign; House of Matriarch is a perfect example of one woman staying true to her spiritual self and she shares her good fortune with numerous charities in the Seattle Community.  2013 is the year that Christi successfully combined creativity with commerce.

NEW NICHE FRAGRANCE: From Seattle to Sweden, Sacre Tabac, 1st Edition, 'Sucre'

Posted on October 22, 2013 by Matriarch Blog

When our Perfumer read about Malek Mohammed's seemingly endless search for a hookah inspired perfume, she offered to create one for him. 

In creating his personal wish-list for the fragrance pyramid,  Malek requested accents of rich vanilla, sweet caramel and spicy anise to accompany the sour burst of red and green apples.  He wanted it to be "REALLY, REALLY SWEET".  The aroma is identical to the tangy zing of double apple" shisha.   

Sucre is a syrupy unisex scent voyage, marrying the fun and drama of a concept fragrance with the refinement and sophistication of a Matriarch High Perfume.  Due to the quality of the materials used (natural fruit isolates, precious woods,) and the extrait concentration, this hypnotic perfume lasts for an incredible 24 hours on the skin. 

Universally adored for it's comforting nostalgia, tobacco has a special ability to connect us to our Ancestors and the Great Spirit.  This perfume was created in homage of that relationship and those memories so many of us hold dear.
