House of Matriarch believes in the transcendent power of fragrance to connect us to the past, captivate our being to excite the present moment and help us to write the future. Our Founder, Scent Strategist and Perfume Mage, Christi Meshell, is the preeminent “Creative Nose” of the American niche fragrance scene. Her versatility as both Creative Director and Fragrance Composer allow her to single-handedly develop a concept from initial inspiration, to rare ingredient gathering and onwards to final display, cellaring and legacy cataloging.
While Meshell’s fragrance narrative tells stories of the misted past, her principles of action carry our community into the future, to the pinnacle of the highest art of perfume making and layered scent storytelling. Hearkening back to the mysteries of thousands of years of discovery and experiment, craft and artful application, Christi has gathered that heritage to a renewed modernist appraisal of the futurist art of high perfumery.

House of Matriarch High Perfumery is modern perfume science and art — as richly layered as our expression in the magical alchemy of the marvelously detailed fragrances that we create.
