Dear Diane, 

There is a new and wonderful scent called BONNIE BILLY being launched here in L.A. next week by SANAE INTOXICANTS


The scent is by inspired by Will Oldham, aka, Bonnie Prince Billy. 

It was originally based off a palette Mr. Oldham shared with SANAE INTOXICANTS which included a note of his own inspiration: the scent of the Agarwood tree, also known as "oud" which is not only a fragrance that has been used in perfumery dating back to the most ancient times, but also a beautiful Middle Eastern string instrument.

The two explored many variations on a formula and SANAE INTOXICANTS sought out some of the rarest essential oils, attars and absolutes which now make up the latest intoxicant called "Bonnie Billy." 

It is a unisex blend of deep Assam oud, Egyptian jasmine, French mimosa, and the rare, exotic oils of Mukhallat and kewda – “Bonnie Billy” is an exclusive, limited edition, handcrafted scent. A dab of this multi-layered and mysterious aromatic mix will bring to mind ancient bazaars, mystic shrines, and the sensual sway of veiled dancers.

Intoxicating, mysterious – the result of SANAE INTOXICANTS and Oldham’s incredible creative give and take is utterly one-of-a-kind, a signature combination of oils which draws it’s power from an array of ingredients that are difficult to source, extremely rare, truly potent (80% perfume content) and unfortunately - finite in supply.

There will be a launch here in Los Angeles at Bar Stella on Monday Decemeber 3rd from 5-9.

i also have had the extreme sensational pleasure of experiencing this scent...last all day, heavy in its ancient scent yet lightness lingers as it unfolds through out the day. a rare treat and the fact that some of these oils are so rare they no longer can be found- makes one wonder- about buying...know i will lament not having more :)) xo isis aquarian

I've had the pleasure and fortune to sample this perfume, and it is indeed a rare treat! Laced with authentic precious Oud, it's very clearly exceptionally high quality. If you haven't had the opportunity to experience oud, this is a phenomenal representation.
