House of Matriarch: Magic and Ritual in Perfumery: Activating the Alchemist Within - INTUITIVE FRAGRANCE DESIGN

Posted on November 10, 2016 by Matriarch Blog

House of Matriarch Founder and Perfumer Christi Meshell has been proclaimed as "one of the most gifted Noses in the world".  Jaws drop when it's revealed that this rising star of the luxury fragrance genre has received absolutely zero classical training.
Christi arrived at her station as one of the preeminent Creative Perfumers in the world by way of magic.
Christi Meshell - Magical Perfumer for House of Matriarch
"Scent driven" for her entire life, (20% of the population is) it was not until she reached the juncture in her mystical studies where she worked her way through the natural correspondences of the celestial bodies, signs, musical tones, crystals, the Kabbalah, Chakras and other spiritual systems that she was "activated" as a Perfumer.
Christi Meshell - Magical Perfumer for House of Matriarch Studies Natural Correspondences to Create Her Perfumes
Christi had already amassed an enormous collectionn of essential oils which she had been collecting for a lifetime.  Once she began arranging them in ways that had special, even magical meanings the essences and blends activated her further.
Essence became the Holy Grail of her spiritual studies - it held answers, questions and possibility. It was like some kind of magical healing language she had toned for lifetimes. She dedicated an entire wing of her home to her passion, wrapped up a lucrative 15 year career as a real estate broker on Seattle's upper Eastside and dove straight into creating House of Matriarch.
Perfumer Christi Meshell used to make custom candles for magic and ritual in her kitchen - the start of her life as a Perfumer.
Perfumed candles came first: they became very popular and custom orders from "those who knew" were pouring in. Energy Workers, Astrologers, Musicians, even Orisha Priests could feel the magic the candles possessed due to the intentioned arrangement of the notes. One fateful day someone commented on how they would love to own a perfume that smelled like one of her candles. Everything clicked - since that day in 2009 she has dedicated herself to the High Art of Magical Perfume Making.  She has established the House of Matriarch brand to share her message of beauty, magic and healing with the world. 
Magical Perfumer Christi Meshell
 
The first perfume, Matriarch was launched on Christi's 36th birthday, in 2009. It was a simple blend of just 36 notes.  Now her creations can consist of 300 or more individual essences and are named among the highest quality perfumes on Earth.

100% Natural Incense - Perfume yourself with this devotional ritual and set the stage for magic!

Posted on November 01, 2016 by Matriarch Blog

Incense is the "original perfume" - the life breath of poets, dreamers and mystics around the world. Enjoy these burnable 100% natural versions of our most popular perfumes. Cast the perfect mood or perfume yourself with a smoke bath.  Primitive - and sensual.  

Most people don't have the time for (or want the mess of) burning charcoals to enjoy a pure, authentic incense experience.  Cones travel easily, burn cleanly and are as potent as dropping raw incense onto an ember. You will experience a noticeable effect not found with conventional ready to burn incenses due to the mild psychoactive nature of the essences.  

100% Natural Luxury Incense Cones - Powerful natural essences set the mood!

Our incense is 100% natural - purists will recognize the quality and authenticity of our ingredients immediately.  They are extra potent, clean burning and safer than conventional incense for pets and children who share your environment.

Previously containing 24 cones, now we include 33 cones per batch in our gorgeous copper tins.

HOUSE OF MATRIARCH: One with Nature: Finest Perfumery Ingredients Revealed

Posted on January 10, 2016 by Matriarch Blog

Natural Perfumery
House of Matriarch perfumes are created from Mother Nature's finest noble essences, which makes them more expensive and more complicated to produce than synthetic fragrances.
Natural Essences in House of Matriarch Perfume Formulations
Most people are not aware that artificial scents (for going on 100 years now) have been primarily created from fractional distillations of crude oil, coal and chemical by-products of the paper industry.  No good for people or the planet.
Perfume Ingredients Derived from Coal and Crude Oil
 
Discerning individuals smell and feel a distinctive, energetic difference in perfumes that come from Nature and are mindfully crafted and bottled. About 20% of the population is "scent driven" and so our perfumes are not going to be relevant to everyone, but if they are for you, they can be exceptionally meaningful.

M is for Meditation

Posted on March 09, 2015 by Matriarch Blog

 

Mystics and Priests have always known that aromas can increase the power of prayer by creating a bridge between us and The Divine.  In more passive meditation states, they increase our receptivity to the subtle impressions of our subconscious images.  These effects have been proven by science, and the research has shown that synthetics (no matter how pleasing to the nose) fail to offer the same consciousness enhancing effects.

Even if you don't meditate or pray, you can benefit from elevating your state of being on a day to day basis with your signature fragrance.  The natural essences in our perfumes offer a beautiful way to unite with nature and experience all of the many benefits to mind, body and spirit.

Check out our most meditative fragrances.  Try for yourself and see how zen is only a spray away!
