Yes, you read that headline correctly. Singer-songwriter Bonnie “Prince” Billy has released his own fragrance. The musician, also known as Will Oldham, has collaborated with Sanae Intoxicants to create “Bonnie Billy,” a 5 ml bottle that will set you back $220 (you can also order a .5 ml sample for $22).
Here’s the description of the fragrance from Sanae Intoxicants’ website:
Bonnie Billy: Underneath the bouquet of the mukhallat, on a warm, Egyptian jasmine, tobacco night, rocks the ancient, romantic rhythm of the Assam oud. Relish in this mystical, swirling dance. It will light up all who surround you.
Actually, that does sound pretty intoxicating. Unfortunately most of us haven’t carved $220 out of our budget for fragrances.
