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.

Lucky 13: Bohemian Black Natural Perfume Review by Ida Meister of Fragrantica

Posted on January 10, 2014 by Matriarch Blog

There are reasons why certain folk do well in the Perfumed World. It's no accident that Christi Meshell's House of Matriarch following continues to gain momentum: she's a hardworking, resourceful perfumer with enormous imagination and talent. Her presentation is beautiful and the perfumes themselves are innovative and delightful.

I look forward eagerly to each sample of her latest creations—this time it is Bohemian Black, High Perfumery Gypsy Style. Christi refers to BB as "enigmatic amber," and you'll hear no argument from my corner. Bohemian Black is the thirteenth perfume in her Luxury Naturals Collection; I'd say it was Lucky 13. And who better to melodically illustrate this mystical fragrance than Bert Jansch and John Renbourn of The Pentangle.
  
[I'll be frank: two spritzes, and I bought myself a bottle. I'll share, though; that sort of greedy I'm not. When it arrives, I'll apportion it out to my dear ones. Meanwhile, my dear husband is very fond!]
 
Tinctures are a House specialty—and Bohemian Black commences with a zesty homemade limoncello accord, smooth as a cat's whiskers. Christi then adds herbs of an undisclosed nature, but given that the Italian liqueur Strega was an inspiration, we can intuit the deeply earthy likes of mint, fennel, and perhaps 70 others. ;-) Never you mind: it's an essential part of our cosmic cassoulet and adds to the mystery. I could inquire, but I feel no need; it's beauty for her own sweet sake, and I rather enjoy not knowing.
 


The floral heart of the matter is pure decadent opulence, a riotous profusion of white flowers who have  swooningly yielded themselves for our pleasure. It would be brutish not to appreciate their sacrifice, would it not? Sweet loves salty, so why not wed choya [choya nakh is the result of roasted seashells distilled in Himalayan cedarwood oil; choya loban is Indian frankincense distilled in the same Himalayan cedar base], so smokily divine, to the witches brew?

The woods and resins are venerably aged and hypnotic. Effervescent amber? I have no clue whatsoever, but if there is amber, count me in.

These are so many of my favorite things, I feel positively spoilt. It is as if someone asked me what I loved the best, and then proceeded to deliver my heart's desire in a vial. 

Initially headstrong [the word têtu expresses it better for me], voluptuous and high-spirited, Bohemian Black becomes the Pashmina Perfume, glowingly warm without undue weight. BB clings affectionately to the skin and clothing for hours. It is the perfect thing to wear if you wish to entice someone into your lair.  You won't need a negligee.  Thank you for always sharing your creations, Christi.
