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.

YOURS, MINE, OURS: HOM'S BEAUTY OF BONDING WITH SCENT

Posted on February 09, 2017 by Matriarch Blog

 
"SHARED SCENTS" are unisex perfumes designed to be worn by men, women and couples. It is a very bonding act to wear the same perfume as your beloved.  High Perfumery is not gender specific.  "The notion that roses are for girls and cedar is for boys is as ridiculous as believing that celery is for girls and broccoli is for boys. It's not accurate what has been imprinted upon us," says our perfumer Christi Meshell.               
  
 "Natural scents are universal: irresistible and alluring: they're shared. Like other gifts of love (chocolate, flowers) they are luxurious, and equally savored by all."   We all know how a certain perfume can remind you of a particular person.  Having a shared perfume with your mate reinforces your connection and bond with a unique signature; capturing that euphoric chemistry that is created between two people wearing the same perfume.  
 
With fun names like Sex Magic, Forbidden, and Devotion and quality ingredients like the organic vanilla in Coco Blanc and the genuine ambergris in Orca, you're guaranteed a heightened experience.
