"Oh my stars, daft love behind the curtain!" House of Matriarch throws down three new fragrance tracks

Posted on January 01, 2015 by Matriarch Blog

1/1/15
House of Matriarch "Nose" Christi Meshell has just released a DISCO EDITION trio of perfumes for Carlos Powell's Peace, Love & Perfume Project.  Ever inspired by song in her fragrance designs, this project allowed Christi to go "all the way" with her craft of blending liquid music.  Numerous members of the Peace, Love & Perfume community (700+members) "listened in" during the early stages and contributed their submissions for how they imagined the three songs would "smell". 
The perfumes are handcrafted from the highest quality essences from around the world, and contain over 70% organic materials.  There are no fragrance oils or pre-mixed bases.  Each perfume stands alone, yet the collection was designed to allow for blending any two or even all three. What fun!

Top Artisan Fragrance Maker: House of Matriarch

Posted on January 19, 2014 by Matriarch Blog

Located on Seattle's Eastside, House of Matriarch creates perfumes and flavors for niche market segments and independent private labels. Our award winning perfumes are created with timeless methods and noble materials. Through the ancient Royal Art of High Perfumery, we enter the Temple of Alchemy to embody fragrance at its highest: Mother Nature in liquid form.

Our Perfumer and brand visionary, Christi Meshell is "the Nose" behind some of the most compelling new fragrances in today's niche marketplace.  Her versatility as both Creative Director and Fragrance Composer allow her to single-handedly develop a concept from initial inspiration through final display.  Each of her creations is an original design, composed from her proprietary accords and without any premixed bases or fillers.  Critics and fans continually laud her designs with accolades like "The Gold Standard in Fragrance", "Genius in a Bottle" and "The Priestess of Perfumery".

A mystical heritage has called her the lifelong study of magical correspondences, plant medicine and sacred cosmology, knowledge which finds practical application in the fragrance creation process.  In August, 2013 Christi received the title Top Artisan Perfumer at the International Fragrance Awards and in December, 2013 House of Matriarch was named TOP INDIE FRAGRANCE HOUSE of 2013 by Cafleurebon. Her work has also been praised in Men's Journal, Sunset Magazine and Seattle Magazine.  

Christi launched her first perfume in Bellevue in 2009, and she's been churning out award winning compositions under her own Matriarch brand and for private labels all around the world. Her first cult classic, BLACKBIRD created a stir in fragrance circles in 2012 when it beat out anchor brands like Versace and Chanel in sniff tests.  Some say BLACKBIRD marked the "dawn of a new era in perfumery" .  Now all eyes are on Seattle and the "fragrance revolution" she has been credited with igniting.

Best Indie Perfume House of 2013: House of Matriarch.

Posted on December 26, 2013 by Matriarch Blog

 

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.
