Source of inspiration: the Harkness Hamilton Princess Rose (Photograph supplied)

Two of Bermuda’s iconic and historic brands have come together to create a new fragrance, Island Rose.

The Hamilton Princess & Beach Club has collaborated with master perfumer Isabelle Ramsay-Brackstone, of Lili Bermuda, in their quest to create a fragrance that reflects the legacy of a hotel property that has evolved through more than a century of Bermuda’s tourism iterations.

The Harkness Hamilton Princess Rose, which blooms around the harbour-front property, was the source of inspiration in creating the new fragrance.

Mrs Ramsay-Brackstone said she was entranced by the perfume of the rose, which she describes as “powerful, quite citrusy, with a dash of raspberry fruit, and also capturing the smell of the wind entering Hamilton Harbour”.

She added: “We wanted the rose to reflect nuances, colours and textures of Bermuda and to be true to the Harkness Rose, which adorned the gardens of the hotel.”

Mrs Ramsay-Brackstone depicts the fragrance as “an ethereal rose — fruity, but not sweet, fresh and effervescent, with a lovely iris and woody dry down.

“Island Rose is a fragrance which reflects the affluent and mystical persona that is Bermuda.”

The fragrance debuts this week and is available at Lili Bermuda Boutique in St George, at Hamilton Princess & Beach Club’s Pink Cabana store, the National Museum of Bermuda, the 59 Front store and online at www.lilibermuda.com.
