SANAE INTOXICANTS AND THEIR BONNIE BILLY
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.
