BONSAI - The Fragrance of Zen

Posted on May 19, 2019 by Matriarch Blog

 

FRAGRANCE FAMILY: GREEN

Seemingly undirected, wild and natural, BONSAI honors the endless ritual and joy of the Zen Garden.  Rarified notes of alligator juniper, black copal, aglaia flower and artisan distilled PNW evergreens fully express the radiance and depth we all crave in a green fragrance.

Delightfully timeless, bursting specimen conifers are the pathway to the heart of a pristine reflection garden where you partake in bonsai's companion ritualthe tea ceremony.  Here, the fresh beginning is harmonized to an ancient, balsamic wood base, rooting into the soil of your most primitive pleasure centers with touchpoints of incense and spice.

she - Debut Vintage

Posted on February 07, 2018 by Matriarch Blog

  
Inspired by Kristin West
Original art "Lemonoude" by Kristin West
depicting Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter
The first 50 pre-orders receive an autographed art print.
  
"she" High Fragrance with Malysian oud and 1970's vintage Zanzibari lemongrass
  she features rare Malaysian oud coupled with precious 1970's vintage organic lemongrass from Zanzibar.  
  
Sparkling fresh lemon notes twinkle through top, middle and base - a miracle made possible by the absence of citrus oils in the formulation.  Ordinary citrus perfumes turn rancid within a couple of years due to oxidation of the citrus top notes, so our Perfumer Christi Meshell designed an artful accord of verbena, melissa, and vintage lemongrass - noble essences that will mature magnificently in the years to come (due to the un-denatured grape ethanol base) and will never spoil - a quality shared by all House of Matriarch perfumes.
  

"she was born from friendship, passion, and the ardent necessity to create. This entire process was wonderful, it grew from a desire to see more fragrances with almost startlingly different notes come together in one harmonious experience. An androgynous creation that was also made to celebrate powerful femininity. As Christi created the perfume I created the companion pieces- Visual works of art that are representative to the olfactive art she was making. It was wonderful, and inspiring to work alongside another artist on this unique experience that is she." - Kristin West
     
For women, men and everyone in between. she is a perfume for adepts of natural perfumery, initiates of magical aromatherapy and collectors of vintage perfumes.

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.
99% Natural.

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.
