  • People & Culture

Isabelle Ramsay-Brackstone has a rare job title: Perfumer. She's also an artist. As her bio says, "Bermuda is her subject, and Lili Bermuda fragrances are her finest works."

Ramsay-Brackstone is the owner of Lili Bermuda, which creates fragrances that capture Bermuda's natural beauty and romance in aromatic form. Her inspirations include Bermuda cedarwood, spring freesias, fresh loquats and salty ocean breezes.

Intoxicating, romantic scents fill the air at Lili Bermuda, located in the historic Stewart Hall in St. George's Parish. It’s here that master perfumer Ramsay-Brackstone handcrafts her highly lauded Lili Bermuda fragrances, carrying on a tradition that began in 1928.

Her perfumes have been raved about in publications like the New York Times, Elle and InStyle. But despite the international acclaim, Lili Bermuda remains made only in Bermuda and available exclusively in Bermuda or online at It’s just one of those things that's best experienced in person.
