BONSAI and TETRAMORPH were named as two of "The 5 Best New Fragrances of 2019" by a panel of esteemed judges at TasteTV and the Academy of Media Tastemakers for the The Artisan Fragrance Salon. In addition to being named as the Best New Fragrances of the Year, House of Matriarch also received the title of Official Fragrance Partner of the 11th Annual TASTE AWARDS which will take place in Beverly Hills in 2020. The judges sampled and ranked countless fragrances for elements such as Best Ingredient Combinations, Best Aroma, Most Unique and Most Seductive Scent in an effort to narrow the list down to only five fragrances. Thank you, TASTE TV and congratulations to the other three fragrance creators that also received the honor!

Luca Turin, one of the most respected fragrance critics in the entire world, recently published a review of our perfumes. House of Matriarch has earned his seal of approval for our perfumes and influenced his perception of niche perfumery!
Click here to see Luca Turin's review of our fragrances!!
"Beautiful blue bottles with coppery labels; a distinctive look, half steampunk and half Islamic-abstract; consistently good, properly worked-out perfumes with apt but not hyperbolic names; and an overall cast of high quality and good humor."

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 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 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.
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 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.
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.
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 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 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.

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.
And as usual, Christi made fast friends with the DJ <3
