Lili Bermuda Fragrances
Expertly crafted by master perfumer Isabelle Ramsey-Brackstone in the Bermuda Perfumery’s historic Town of St. George location, these fragrances capture the essence of Bermuda. The Island's pure scent of wind, fresh salt spray of the ocean and luscious flowers are her signatures. The sweet and sultry South Water transports you to a secluded Bermuda beach. Coral lends a gentle sea breeze and the scent of Bermuda freesia blossoms to the wearer. And the romantic, citrusy Mary Celestia was meticulously re-created from a 150-year-old perfume discovered recently in a Bermuda shipwreck.
Bermuda Cedar Gifts
The iconic and aromatic Bermuda cedar tree (Juniperus bermudiana) has been a cornerstone of island life for more than four centuries – the original castaways who settled the island used the material to build the Deliverance and Patience to get to Jamestown, their planned destination. The Littlest Drawbridge Gift Shop at the Royal Naval Dockyard offers handmade cedar treasures – everything from boxes, pens, goblets, vases and bowls, as well as sachets, cedar essential oils and incense cones.
