FULL HOUSE DISCOVERY - House of Matriarch High Perfumery
Incredible foray into the gardens and magic wardrobes of Christi. An olfactory adventure that finally allowed me to experience the scents I have been reading about for so long. A great overview of which at least two "big siblings" will be found soon amongst my personal fragrance treasures.

NATURAL IS THE NEW NICHE

Enliven your senses with 21 fragrances in the perfect 3.3 ml size.

These sprayers are the perfect size for travel and sharing. High quality misters deliver a "full bottle" style veil for ample coverage with just one spray. 

ALBATROSS

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. 

AMANITA

Drums. Fire. Ceremony. Divine Union. Follow your nose into the dark forest where a cornucopia of flora and fauna enchant your consciousness to inspire creativity and healing. 

AMBRE VIE

Liquid gold. Intense, yet subtle. More than one hundred different natural essences comprise this silky amber perfume. Fresh mimosa and davana top notes awaken the luxurious unfolding of this ultra-natural honeyed amber as costus offers it's animalic mystique.
After the initial floral impression, the reverse dry down begins.  Amber Vie is so "base heavy" that it's aroma takes six hours or more to fully develop - growing mysteriously stronger with time.

BLACK SHEEP

Among the rarest of essences - costus root oil possesses the aroma of fine wool. A tincture of raw Icelandic black fleece (humanely sheared from the lovely Penelope) in grape spirits alchemizes the costus with notes of white pepper, clover, cistus, copal and barley which tame the unusual earthiness of the costus and reveal it's underlying spice.  

BEAUTYWOOD

The companion fragrance to our beloved High Beauty Oil, BEAUTYWOOD is a woody gourmand perfume of universal appeal.  Such beauty, tenacity and creaminess can only be found in the presence of authentic, natural sandalwood.  Accept no substitute!

BONSAI

 Bursting conifers and a sacred the tea ceremony harmonize a fresh beginning to an ancient wood base. Your most primitive pleasure centers are activated with touchpoints of spice and incense.

COCO BLANC

 For fragrance connoisseurs, Coco Blanc is the “gourmand gold standard” – a fragrance savored and adored all around the world for it's universal beauty.  You will fall in love with this 100% natural perfume’s yummy gourmand notes, soft noble woods, warm chai spices and exotic massoia. 

DESTRIER

Evocative of riding through a medieval forest - downwind of sweet grasses curing in the sunshine of nearby fields, DESTRIER is unisex fragrance for lovers of horses, leather notes and grassy, coumarinic drydowns.  

DEVOTION

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 an entire universe encapsulated in each waft of scented breeze.  The frankincense, from Oman.  The myrrh, Somalia. 

EAGLEWOOD

"The real deal."  A royal bouquet of sustainable and vintage oud essences from around the world. A spray or dab alone is exquisite and transportative. No artificial oud whatsoever - all varieties are 100% natural and sustainable.  The perfect oud for your fragrance layering experiments.  

EX VOTOS

Ex Votos is a beeswax soliflore perfume in a bouquet of rare and precious supporting essences which evokes the sacrificial candles which have been offered prayerfully for generations. Their beautiful aroma and natural glow create an ambiance which can only be described as HOLY. 

EPIPHANY

The holy grail of lavender perfumes.  Triple gold medal award winning Hidcote Pink Lavender, organically grown and artisan distilled on the Olympic Peninsula is the crown jewel of this modern chypre formulation. 

FORBIDDEN

Forbidden is rooted in layers of historically feared and even outlawed essences. Forbidden begins with an 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 fragrance. 

KAZIMI

Hints of white ginger, ruh gulab (an attar style rose oil) Edward Rose and Rose Bourbania twinkle in the opening. Exceptionally rare, oud-like Green Heart Wood from Kenya is hardly detectable to most noses, yet imparts it’s magic for an amplifying and softening effect that is dreamy, ancient and spacious. Opoponax resinoid is sweet, and smells vintage, hinting at suede. Exotic spices are present during the entire drydown, providing interest without dominating.

KIKI

KiKi is a fantasy fragrance for lovers of mirrored disco balls, house parties with friends and all things ultraviolet. 

JOY OF AMBER

Primitive woods, sappy balsams, rich resins, smoothing gourmand notes, several layered labdanum fractions including hydrocarboresin, a melange of exotic spices, and even a rare fossilized amber from millions of years ago, specially distilled for it's high phenol content and resonant depth.

SACRE NOIR

Heart notes of noble woods, resinous incenses, fantastical holly, exotic spices and warm balsams evoke feelings of comfort and cheer while a twinkling sugarplum accord offers an almost edible deliciousness to this otherwise dark and resinous holiday fragrance.  

TRILLIUM

An invitation to an enchanted tea party.  Steeped in a long and noble history, the aroma of tea is a favorite of so many around the world.  This tea and white floral fantasy fragrance was brewed to capture the spirit of the elusive Great White Trillium flower.  Fresh in its unfolding; a blend of exotic tea absolutes (red, white, black, green, honeybush) mingle with tart rooibos and exotic natural floral notes of aglaia, mimosa, coffee flower and double blooming Roman chamomile.  Somehow, as if by magic, the bouquet is an exact match the aroma of this mystical and potent flower. 

THE MAJ

Some of the elements of this fine perfume date back to the early 1900's, so it's highly appealing to fans of cellared fragrances. Prominent notes are aged Mysore sandalwood attars of kewra, kadam, mitti and vetiver which form a magical quintessence worthy of magic carpet rides, royalty and the most romantic of occasions. 

VANILLA CAVIAR

This vanilla soliflore has a timeless quality and elicits a phantom "mouthfeel" - the litmus test of a true gourmand.

VIOLET FLAME

A liquid mantra of unmatched frequency and purity from a higher dimension where fragrance is enchanted and the magical properties of the natural violet are fully expressed.

Incredible foray into the gardens and magic wardrobes of Christi. An olfactory adventure that finally allowed me to experience the scents I have been reading about for so long. A great overview of which at least two "big siblings" will be found soon amongst my personal fragrance treasures.
