House of Matriarch launch perfume trio inspired by Twin Peaks

Seattle-based perfumery House of Matriarch have launched a collection of three new fragrances, the ‘Twin Peaks’ inspired ‘Wonderful and Strange Liquid Music Trio’.

“25 years have passed since Laura Palmer, the troubled coquette employed at the perfume counter of Horne’s Department Store in David Lynch’s ‘Twin Peaks’, made her impression on our minds and hearts. Since, the echoes of the haunting chords of the famous soundtrack have kept her memory and the mysteries surrounding her death brewing in the collective consciousness.

House of Matriarch perfumer Christi Meshell has returned to this music again and again over the years for its haunting mood. Residing near the Snoqualmie Forest where the series was filmed, Christi has a deep knowing of how those dark woods smell.

When Christi saw a video of Angelo Badalamenti, the composer of the famous soundtrack, recounting the story of how he and David Lynch sat together at his piano to co-compose the soundtrack, Christi began to imagine the aromas which seemed to accompany the famous question still being asked: “Who killed Laura Palmer?””

There are three fragrances in the collection: the evergreen Future’s Past, red perfume The Red Room and powdery, dreamy World of Blue. A limited edition collection, 13% of the proceeds from the sale of the Wonderful and Strange Trio will be donated to the David Lynch Foundation.
