Meet Pam

How long have you worked at The Perfumery? 
I have worked here for 23 years - 10 years with the previous owners and 13 years with Isabelle. I feel like I am part of the furniture.

What do you love most about working at The Perfumery?
What I love most is that over the years I have learned so much about perfume. I have met all types of people from all round the world who have heard about us and want smell our scents. We have many customers who come to see us year after year, who have become friends, and who come to replenish their scent.

I also love doing mail orders for our repeat customers. Some of our faithful customers order by phone and they tell me their story of how long they have worn our scents, and the compliments they get from wearing them. It is very heartwarming. For instance there is a lady who contacts us every six months to replenish her most favorite fragrance Paradise. She always lets me know that she has been wearing it for at least 30 years! The last time she called she mentioned that she was chased down the aisle at her local grocery story as the person NEEDED to know what fragrance she was wearing. Of course she was quite happy to say ‘It’s a fragrance from Bermuda!’ and she left it at that.

What do you like to do on your day off /weekends?
I love to relax and watch a good movie with my fiancé Joe. I also spend every other Saturday going to lunch with my daughter. So many options for good lunches in Bermuda!

What we love about Pam (from Isabelle):
Dear dear Pam is the Mother hen of the Bermuda Perfumery, taking care of all of us, especially Isabelle. She is a faithful, kind and generous colleague to whom we owe so much. She knows this business inside out and she is on a first name basis with many of our customers who call her regularly for years to reorder their perfumes. Pam will go out of her way to make sure that everyone is happy with their order. Pam does not speak much for no reason, she goes with the flow...she is very easy to get along with. Be sure to stay on her good side and she will give you the moon.

  • My sister and I vacationed in Bermuda for a week and on our last day. I toured the street where your shop was located. She is somewhat of a travel Nazi, while I have Attention Deficit Disorder and get lost in time. I live on disability and found souvenirs are my memories. That is until I smelled Bermuda Oleander, which became my soul scent. When my sister came in to gripe about leaving now, she stopped in her tracks and said ”You smell great! What is it?” Of course, ithe fragrance didn’t work on her, but Frangipani did wonders for her temperament and attitude. She bought a bottle of Oleander for me and FP for her and it. is the ONLY scent that I wear. So many people, especially men, asks me what it is or compliment me on how great I smell. Thank you for your good work, wonderful personalities, excellent service and helping jump start romances. I always pray that you all stay safe in hurricane season. We just got hit with Harvey, but luckily, minimal damage to my apartment. Thank you again and God bless you for bringing joy into so many lives though our sense of smell. Keep up. the great work!/play.

  • Hi Pam. My sister and husband were on vacation in Bermuda last year. She knows how much I love perfume, but stopped wearing it because I don’t like any of the current perfumes. That changed when she bought me a bottle of Coral. I am so in love with the beautiful scents. My favorites are: South Water, Fresh Water and just now received in the mail Bermudiana!!
    So happy that I can wear perfume again.

  • Pam, I love the Perfumery so much. I have fond memories of taking a tour in 1982 and remembering how amazing it is that these scents are made with the flowers. My original scent was Bermuda Blue, then Bermudiana and now Coral. I’ve worn perfumes from Bermuda since 1982! I will never wear anything else. Although I have never met you, I’ve spoken to you and corresponded as well. Keep up the wonderful and fun work!! I mean play:)
