what is ‘belladonic haze’? I also want to know the history as well as precise meaning of the phrase.?

C’mon. I need to know the meaning of phrase and its origin/history. I know that Queen used it and I also know what belladonna is, but i need to know when used as phrase what does it mean precisely. And its history.

The Group Queen used the words Belladoic Haze in the lyrics of this song
I was told a million times
Of all the troubles in my way
How I had to keep on trying
Little better ev’ry day
But if I crossed a million rivers
And I rode a million miles
Then I’d still be where I started
Bread and butter for a smile
Well I sold a million mirrors
In a shop in Alley Way
But I never saw my face
In any window any day
Well they say your folks are telling you
To be a super star
But I tell you just be satisfied
To stay right where you are
Keep yourself alive keep yourself alive
It’ll take you all your time and a money
Honey you’ll survive
Well I’ve loved a million women
In a belladonic haze
And I ate a million dinners
Brought to me on silver trays
Give me ev’rything I need
To feed my body and my soul
And I’ll grow a little bigger
Maybe that can be my goal
I was told a million times
Of all the people in my way
How I had to keep on trying
And get better ev’ry day
But if I crossed a million rivers
And I rode a million miles
Then I’d still be where I started
Still be where I started
Keep yourself alive keep yourself alive
It’ll take you all your time and money honey
You’ll survive
Keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
It’ll take you all your time and money
To keep me satisfied
Do you think you’re better ev’ry day
No I just think I’m two steps nearer to my grave
Keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive mm
You take your time and take your money
Keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
All you people keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
It’ll take you all your time and a money
To keep me satisfied
Keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
All you people keep yourself alive
Take you all your time and money honey
You will survive
Keep you satisfied
Keep you satisfied

I’m thinking it has something to do with the plant belladonna, a member of the nightshade family with narcotic properties. The “haze” would refer to the effect the drug has on you.
History? Belladonna has been used and abused for years.

The phrase in the song is simply saying that he loved these million women drunk on their beauty.
The name “belladonna” means “beautiful lady,” and was chosen because of a risky practice in Italy. The belladonna berry juice was used historically in Italy to enlarge the pupils of women, giving them a striking appearance.
