A fragrance born of the Northwest. Dream-inducing lavender fields mingle with towering cedar trees swaying gently in the misted Pacific breeze. An underlying sense of exploration, imbued through a Vetiver base note, keeps this ancient Northwest spirit youthful and exotic. Madrona, whose bark itself look like it was forged of polished bronze, lends more than just a note to this fragrance — it lays the roots of its name.
NarcisseNoir Review: "Madrona is primarily a vetiver fragrance that smells earthy and green. The lavender adds an aromatic coolness. To me, this fragrance smells like late summer when it's still warm but the weather is less oppressive. It's like when lavender has been harvested and out to dry. Really is a must-try perfume if you like vetiver or grassy scents."
SanctuaryThroughScent Review: "Madrona trees have long held a special place in my heart and this fragrance has captured their magic. The lavender, cedar, and vetiver perfectly complement each other and almost dance into your nose. There is a playfulness to this scent, it continually lifts me up and takes me to new heights. I feel like I'm indulging myself in the most delightful way when I spritz it on in the morning, I don't think I could go without it."
DonnaDiana Review: "Madrona is a sexy, feminine presentation of lavender. I had a hard time finding a lavender perfume that I would prefer to wear instead of a straight up essential oil. Madrona filled that spot for me. It is very lovely."
We believe in magic. That magic is real, transformational and transportive. Like perfume, another alchemical journey, magic takes a person from one plane to another, from one portal to a new, and perhaps undiscovered realm. Matriarch is part of that magic, a portal, so in our layering, we’re building in magical code. We’re not pushing it, but we’re walking it, as a story behind the story. We believe that everyone is looking for more magic in their lives.
One such code, takes its architecture from the astrological charting of a particular date and time. We see this implemented in the design as a unique symbol for each fragrance that if understood by the user can inform them of the astral alignments on the day each fragrance was conceived.
