GHAZAL - Limited Edition Single Vintage Fragrance Featuring Cedars of Lebanon - SOLD OUT



Cedars of Lebanon

(grown/distilled in Washington, USA)

Royal Arabian Incense Blend
Vintage 1950's Mysore Sandalwood
Vintage 1920's New Zealand Ambergris


A devotional fragrance of sacred nature and supreme beauty. Very small batch, single-vintage collectors edition. Cedars of Lebanon is a rare and sacred essence no longer used in perfumery since the forests were decimated thousands of years ago. It possesses the compound himachalene in astonishing proportions which conveys it's aromatic, healing and even magical capabilities. 

House of Matriarch received an ounce of this rare oil from an artisan distiller. Otherwise the oil is unavailable, and when found, it's usually mislabeled atlas cedar and not the real thing. House of Matriarch is planting cedrus libani trees across the Pacific NW to help replenish the species.  If winter storms bring branches down, perhaps we will be able someday to create another vintage.  Until then.........


Ghazal 838

if you pass your night
and merge it with dawn
for the sake of heart
what do you think will happen

if the entire world
is covered with the blossoms
you have labored to plant
what do you think will happen

if the elixir of life
that has been hidden in the dark
fills the desert and towns
what do you think will happen

if because of
your generosity and love
a few humans find their lives
what do you think will happen

if you pour an entire jar
filled with joyous wine
on the head of those already drunk
what do you think will happen

go my friend
bestow your love
even on your enemies
if you touch their hearts
what do you think will happen

- Rumi, Fountain of Fire

Translated by Nader Khalili
