Essence of Lili Bermuda

Lili Bermuda is an artistic reflection of Bermuda where each fragrance represents the Island's natural beauty: from the pure scent of the wind and fresh salt spray of the ocean, to its luscious botanicals such as Bermuda cedarwood, spring freesias and juicy loquats.

Every creation is meticulously developed on-island at historic Stewart Hall under the direction of Perfumer Isabelle Ramsay-Brackstone. "Art reflects environment," she says and Bermuda's authenticity is present in every bottle filled by hand. You can catch Isabelle in the Perfumery early in the morning weighing essential oils and blending them into a fragrance that captures the story of Bermuda.

The New York Times, Elle Magazine, InStyle and Travel writer Peter Greenberg have all written glowingly about the exclusive lure of Lili Bermuda. Lili Bermuda fragrances have been featured prominently on television including The View, CBS This Morning and ABC's primetime hit the Bachelorette.

Despite international acclaim and rising demand, Lili Bermuda fragrances are available exclusively in Bermuda or online at The sparse availability of Lili Bermuda fragrances has been consistent through its 85-year history and true to its discriminating clientele who covet the romanticism of Bermuda not replicated anywhere, except within a Lili Bermuda fragrance.

Isabelle's Biography

Isabelle Ramsay-Brackstone

Perfumer, Lili Bermuda

Isabelle Ramsay-Brackstone has been the Perfumer at The Bermuda Perfumery since 2004. Bermuda is her subject and Lili Bermuda fragrances are her finest works.

Isabelle loves the Island. Bermuda became an intimate part of her story in 2003 when she made it her home from her native Canada. A year later she assumed ownership of the nearly century-old Bermuda Perfumery and studied under perfumer David Bothello, benefiting from his 45 years of experience in the art of telling Bermuda's story through fragrances.

In 2006 Isabelle created Coral, her first fragrance. The elegant, light and luminous scent of wild freesia, pink rose, refreshing ginger and clementine adorned Isabelle with newly earned respect in the world of perfume. "Coral is Bermuda in the spring, a rebirth. It represents my own beginning in creation - soft flowers, lingering freshness of the wind, modern but also elegant," explains Isabelle.

Isabelle's inspiration is a fusion of her father's garden in Montreal and the romantic scents of Bermuda. The Island's pure scent of wind, fresh salt spray of the ocean and luscious flowers are signatures of Lili Bermuda.

Isabelle insists Lili Bermuda fragrances be carefully handcrafted in Bermuda, as they have been since 1928. And now, under her direction, and newfound international acclaim, the hand tied ribbon on every Lili Bermuda perfume is breathlessly sought after by people all over the world.
