oM Artisan Perfume: Smoky resins, agarwood and the entire orange tree from leaf to fruit

Posted on April 08, 2015 by Matriarch Blog

"This is a gorgeous oriental orange blossom perfume, completely unique in my experience. I've tried dark, syrupy, and heavy orange blossoms, airy, soapy, and clean orange blossoms, and a wide range of candied orange blossom perfumes, but oM is the first truly oriental orange blossom perfume, with more incense and wood than any of the usual accompanying note suspects. I, too, have visited southern Spain, and it's true: the scent of Spanish cathedrals and the naranjeros of Sevilla have been ably captured and harmonized in oM. What a lovely composition!" – Sherapop (Reviewer on Fragrantica)

A new small batch of oM was bottled last week. Order yours now!

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.
