As I write this, it’s New Year’s eve. Today, as 2013 inched nearer, a fun thing happened — I finally bought some new perfume (not an old favorite or a vintage scent, but a recent creation). My first, and last, new-perfume purchase of 2012 was House of Matriarch Destiny.
The House of Matriarch is a Washington state-based natural perfumery whose scents are created by perfumer Christi Meshell; I came across the entire House of Matriarch collection at the Blackbird Apothecary in Seattle’s old Ballard neighborhood. I could have bought almost any scent in the line and been satisfied, but I decided on a perfume called Destiny. When I got home and researched House of Matriarch, I saw that Destiny is its best seller…and that impressed (and surprised) me, because Destiny is not a one-size-fits-all perfume.
