Maude: That was fun! Let’s play something together.
Harold: I don’t play anything.
Maude: Nothing? Dear me, everybody should be able to make some music. That’s the cosmic dance.
It was 20 years ago the first time I saw what has become my favorite movie of all time, Harold and Maude.
It would be the understatement of all time to say that things have changed in my life and in the world in the last twenty years, but through it all – deaths, births, weddings, life – this movie remains a constant in my life.
When other people talk about things that they love like movies or books, I tend to zone out most of the time. I hate that about myself, but at the same time I recognize that it’s because I’m not connecting to it the way that they have. I know some people have never heard of Harold and Maude and many would probably hate it or not understand it. For the last two decades that I have loved this movie I have constantly noticed new things, new meanings. As I get older, I see the messages differently so it’s not something that I can easily explain.
So, one day while I was trying new blends for the Hazel Fern Scents line I created The Cosmic Dance which has now evolved into a series of Harold and Maude themed perfume oils that I have created based on different characters and scenes from the movie that struck me as “smelling” a certain way.
Even if you’ve never seen Harold and Maude, you can wear these fragrances.
The Cosmic Dance perfume is deep and dark, but not sinister. Dark chocolate, vintage wooden musical instruments in a cedar chest, Egyptian incense, and aged patchouli.
Coming soon to my Etsy shop! I will update here when it happens.
