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.

Nine House of Matriarch Perfumes: NEWNESS at Select Nordstrom Stores

Posted on December 17, 2015 by Matriarch Blog

House of Matriarch's High Perfumery collection is now available at select Nordstrom stores across the U.S. and at Nordstrom.com.

See all nine fragrances and their descriptions below, then pick up a bottle for yourself or as a gift here.

Albatross

Albatross Aquatic

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

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

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.

Devotion

Devotion Incense

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

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.

Madrona

Madrona Aromatic

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.

Orca

Orca Amber

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

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

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: TRENDING at Nordstrom Holiday Events - Seattle

Posted on December 16, 2015 by Matriarch Blog

We're trending!   Last week House of Matriarch participated in Downtown Seattle Nordstrom Fall 2015 Beauty Trend Show. At this seasonal event, the Nordstrom beauty department reveals what is on trend in Beauty and the season's must-haves. 

Of course, being a new product in the department made House of Matriarch a go-to for the event. Beyond that, House of Matriarch perfumes are relevant because of trending demand from customers for more natural products and meaningful luxury. Shop our fragrances trending in Nordstrom here

Mother Nature is always on trend. Always in style. Always the ultimate luxury.

"NATURE IS THE TREND"

Our Creatrix, Christi Meshell was there for the show and spent time meeting with customers and sharing her passion for the natural ingredients that make up our artisan fragrances.

The Beauty Trend Show also gave us the opportunity to meet the other brand founders who had been invited to present at Trend, like Dr Robb co-founder of Clairsonic.

 House Of Matriarch High Perfumery was also premiered during Downtown Seattle Nordstrom Customer Rewards Night holiday shopping party last week! This after-hours VIP shopping experience gave us the opportunity to connect with our customers in a more personal setting.

Launching FITNESSENCE at the Emerald Cup

Posted on May 14, 2015 by Matriarch Blog

 

Last week we launched the first fitness-optimizing fragrance, FITNESSENCE at the Emerald Cup Bodybuilding and Fitness Competition in Bellevue Washington.  Lots of people were attracted to our booth, all with a fabulous, upbeat energy about them. Both men and women resonated with the ancient technology that we presented, and everyone loved the smell.  Many people felt the effects immediately, and some circled back for more. It was so well received that at the end of the expo we only had one full size bottle plus an almost empty tester remaining!

We were thoroughly impressed at the quality of people that were attracted to what we were doing. Attendees and contestants alike were knowledgeable and understood the aroma chemistry that make FITNESSENCE the next x-factor to your workout.

Inspirational, Rosie is 72 and one of the most senior competitors at the Emerald Cup.
We can't wait to read her new book, go Rosie! 
 

To top it all off, it was such an inspiration to be around a room full of people from all ages who are in great shape. Everyone was there with their own inner ideal of perfection, but with the understanding that absolute perfection is unattainable, and proud that they have worked hard and done their best. It truly takes so much going into a competition like this knowing that there is only one top winner, yet many competitors do it for the sport of it. Even more motivating is that while they are competing, they are also supporting each other.

A competition like this gives off a whole different level of energy. It is real. This is the sort of thing House of Matriarch likes to be a part of. Emerald Cup competitors bring true effort and value into what they do, much like what we believe in putting into each of our fragrances.

Gloria Mohninger, one of our first official FITNESSENCE full bottle customers,
is amazing at 49 years young.

 

Lastly, a huge thank you to Elaine and Brad from Craig Productions for inviting us into their world. A fitness-optimizing fragrance is a totally new concept and they were completely open to letting us join the show. We were proud to be one of the only local companies representing a product on the floor.

If you couldn't make it to the Emerald Cup Bodybuilding and Fitness Expo, FITNESSENCE is now available for purchase! It's efficacy is backed by scientific studies, it smells amazing and you will feel it working! Gender neutral: refreshing; slightly spicy and earthy, yet cooling with a woody, amberesque finish.
