About
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. Come for a visit of the Perfumery, where we make our perfumes and sample them on-site. Free tours are available at 11am and 3pm every day we are open.

    Great Service and outstanding perfume
    What great service. Some reviews said they dad poor service, but we found them to be awesome. Loved all the different scents. We ended up with a sampler and one for me and my wife. Very friendly and prices are not bad. You get what you pay for. Thanks for the great service.

    Lovely shop with unique scents
    Lovely shop with friendly service and perfumes that are hand-made, bottled and packaged on site. I'm not a huge perfume person (a lot of them give me headaches) but the natural scents used here are nice and fairly light. We had the opportunity to go on the (brief and informal) 11am tour to see how they create the unique perfumes. I wish we had the opportunity to attend a perfume making workshop or the afternoon tea but it didn't work with our travel plans. Love that they have travel size atomizers as well as perfume bottles for sale!

    A Unique Experience!
    My two adult daughters and I had such fun at Lili Bermuda! Selena showed us around and she was wonderful! She went out of her way to take us to the garden out back so that we could see the types of flowers they distill in the making of perfumes and she also showed us the production room. One of my daughters is really into perfumes and this was all a special thrill for her. For me, it was especially fun to see on display a bottle of perfume which was retrieved from the 1864 wreck of the Mary Celestia. A chemical analysis was done on the contests and from that, they recreated the scent which they sell as one of their many perfumes. When this done a few years ago, the proceeds of the sale were used to sponsor young Bermudians who wished to become Master Divers. Now that is a great company!

I did the perfume workshop just this morning and loved it. As a perfume fan, I learned so much. You start by picking a base, identifying your favourite notes from a large selection, and then combining them. Once you find a combination you like, Isabelle guides you through the ratios - for the heavy hitters, you add drops, for the others, millilitres. Then she helps you correct - needs to be fresher, lighter, sweeter, etc.

It's very complex - what you walk out with might not be a masterpiece, but you learn. And just to be sure, you can stop off and pick up some professional versions at the shop, all available in sizes suitable for carry-on.

I added the high tea from Sweet P and made a day of it, lovely scones and sweets in the back garden.

Highly recommend it for perfume lovers, especially those who, like me, know what they like and don't like, but just don't know why. This workshop will help you understand.

What a beautiful place nestled in historic St. George! Our two daughters (college aged) and I did the new 90 minute workshop offered at the perfumery and could not be happier. Isabelle and her two assistants were extremely knowledgeable (Isabelle is an internationally known perfumer), patient and encouraging. They walked us through an overview of different families of perfume so that you could choose a base and build from there. After that you sample from the rack of essences at your station and smell the different combinations using the paper sampling sticks as you design your own personal scent. At the end you take home a beautiful bottle of your very own hand crafted signature scent and a lovely Lili Bermuda pink apron!

We all loved it and found it to be extremely fun and educational, giving us a much better insight into what goes into making and layering scents in a perfume. Isabelle and her team are a joy to be around and make this workshop something we would definitely do again on a return trip (this time we would include my husband to make a cologne for himself!). Highly recommend!

It's always nice to visit the "Old Towne" of St. George. In the Bermuda Perfumery's 90 min. workshops you learn the basics about making fine perfume--sampling scents, blending, balancing, layering--with guidance of expert perfumer, Isabelle. Each participant works at a station with dozens and dozens of bottles of scents carefully labeled and arranged on vertical shelves according to levels of "notes". With droppers, graded glass cylinder and funnel, and scent 'spikes', we set about choosing and blending our own unique perfumes. It was absolutely fascinating!
I really love what I was able to create and highly recommend this authentic workshop to anyone. No experience necessary--Isabelle is a terrific instructor, able to explain things in simple completely comprehensible terms with a smile. Totally worthwhile experience!

An island institution, Lili Bermuda Perfumery is a must-visit spot for those coming to St. George. Just steps away from King's Square on Queen Street, it's just next to St. Peter's Church.

The shop is small but stocks perfumes, colognes, and beauty products for both men and women that are redolent of the island's natural wonders. I particularly like the island cedar scents. On my last visit, I purchased the perfumery's latest scent of island roses as a gift for a family member.

Afternoon tea is served on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Call for reservations: +1 441-705-2390

Enjoy!

We had meant to do the tour and tea time but didn't manage to get to it on this trip. Had come here years ago on a previous visit to Bermuda and love their fragrances so we had to come by again to restock our supplies. Their showroom is small but well set up and we spent about an hour in there chatting with the staff and trying to figure out what scents to pick. The staff was very helpful with recommendations. Can't wait to come back again for tea time, hopefully before I need a new bottle of Nautilus

Poor because there’s no courtesy or professionalism with customers wether just looking around or deciding to purchase, staff pick and choose who they entertain. I’ve purchased online before & was looking forward to visit this store, the lady in dockyards store seem more friendly should’ve purchased there instead

Bought a lovely fragrance at Bermuda Airport. Unfortunately there was a slight issue with the bottle not spraying. I emailed Lili Bermuda and their customer service was second to none! They immediately sent a new bottle via DHL to the U.K. next time I’m in Bermuda I will be visiting the store to buy more fragrances. FANTASTIC service and quality products.
