In celebration of the 7th Anniversary of ÇaFleureBon, eight perfumers were invited to create perfumes drawing inspiration from a brief written by the blog's founder and Editor in Chief, Michelyn Camen. Her request called for a perfume powerful enough to attract good fortune and ward off negativity - even the dreaded curse of the "evil eye". House of Matriarch created ANTIMONY in response to Michelyn's brief.
Charred frankincense, kewra, henna, Palo Santo, galangal, sandalwood ashes, spikenard, ghee, copal, oud and precious attars of mitti, kadam and rose have all been used to create enchanted cosmetics throughout history. They are all notes used in the formulation of this beautiful talismanic perfume which contains exactly 111 individual notes. Subtle by design, exotic florals push up from a primitive base to bloom on your skin as they emanate like an ancient wisp of fine bakhoor.
These ancient aromas transport the wearer like a magic carpet to a dimension where cosmetics have magical purposes - the very essence of "a glamour." A nod to a forgotten lifetime when eye shadow was compounded from powdered minerals, oils and the ashes of incense and applied by a shaman or priestess or in wealthy kingdoms, a Court Perfumer.
The minerals antimony and malachite have been among those used around the eyes throughout time due to their reflective properties - they ricochet bad vibes like mirrors. Since they are considered toxic (the alchemists would argue otherwise) they have been banned from use in cosmetics. Mystics and folk healers around the world still use them for their prehistorical purposes in treating ailments of mind and spirit and for compounding sacred cosmetics.

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.
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.

Last week we launched the first fitness-optimizing fragrance, FITNESSENCE at the Emerald Cup Bodybuilding and Fitness Competition in Bellevue Washington. Lots of people were attracted to our booth, all with a fabulous, upbeat energy about them. Both men and women resonated with the ancient technology that we presented, and everyone loved the smell. Many people felt the effects immediately, and some circled back for more. It was so well received that at the end of the expo we only had one full size bottle plus an almost empty tester remaining!
We were thoroughly impressed at the quality of people that were attracted to what we were doing. Attendees and contestants alike were knowledgeable and understood the aroma chemistry that make FITNESSENCE the next x-factor to your workout.
To top it all off, it was such an inspiration to be around a room full of people from all ages who are in great shape. Everyone was there with their own inner ideal of perfection, but with the understanding that absolute perfection is unattainable, and proud that they have worked hard and done their best. It truly takes so much going into a competition like this knowing that there is only one top winner, yet many competitors do it for the sport of it. Even more motivating is that while they are competing, they are also supporting each other.
A competition like this gives off a whole different level of energy. It is real. This is the sort of thing House of Matriarch likes to be a part of. Emerald Cup competitors bring true effort and value into what they do, much like what we believe in putting into each of our fragrances.
Lastly, a huge thank you to Elaine and Brad from Craig Productions for inviting us into their world. A fitness-optimizing fragrance is a totally new concept and they were completely open to letting us join the show. We were proud to be one of the only local companies representing a product on the floor.
If you couldn't make it to the Emerald Cup Bodybuilding and Fitness Expo, FITNESSENCE is now available for purchase! It's efficacy is backed by scientific studies, it smells amazing and you will feel it working! Gender neutral: refreshing; slightly spicy and earthy, yet cooling with a woody, amberesque finish.
