DAYLILY - NATURAL FANTASY FLORAL - NEW HIGH PERFUMERY FROM HOUSE OF MATRIARCH

Posted on August 31, 2019 by Matriarch Blog

FRAGRANCE FAMILY: FLORAL
Love at first sight. A single day lily with voluptuous crimson petals, illuminated by the Summer Solstice sun drew her in. When Christi breathed the rapturous aroma of the flower, she was surprised and delighted by perfume it possessed.  She purchased the plant (a crimson blackbeard variety) which still had many blooms left to open and studied the aroma as the rest of the buds unfurled in the week that followed. 
Each part of this beautiful flower is captured herein. The complete dry down takes place over 12 glorious hours, just as the fragrance of a day lily changes throughout it's one-day long life. Pyramidal smelling notes are unlisted as this perfume is blended so that none of the notes are singularly apparent,  a true quintessence novel to your Earthy senses.

Scented Snippets: Reviews of New Perfumes by Ida Meister

Posted on January 21, 2016 by Matriarch Blog

We are delighted to read such a stunning review from Fragrantica

Scented Snippets New Fragrances Review: House of Matriarch High Perfumery / New At Nordstrom's, The First Natural Perfumery in Nationwide Distribution
"Christi Meshell, nose and creator of House of Matriarch High Perfumery – has achieved a real First. Through incessant hard work, determination [not to mention great skill], and the extremely capable hands of Tim Girvin, she recently launched her line at Nordstrom in Seattle: the first luxury line of natural perfumery to be distributed nationwide. This is no small feat, as you can well imagine."
House of Matriarch's Creatrix, Christi Meshell at Nordstrom
"Some degree of cross-­pollination is present, as newer compositions sit side ­by ­side amongst older favorites. Coco Blanc has quite a following it's probably one of the very few coconut­-redolent fragrances which isn't a cloy­monster and is an utter joy to wear. Blackbird reappears as Black No. 1, an edgy cult favorite; Sex Magic and Devotion hail from the Achtung line; Forbidden is a fantasy creature from Christi's earlier work.
Albatross, Madrona, Orca and Trillium are new and unique to the Nordstrom launch."
To read Ida Meister's review on each of our nine fragrances at Nordstrom, head over to Fragrantica. You can purchase any of these fragrances in our online store or at select Nordstrom across the U.S.

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.
