Win The Lightning Oak Collection

Win The Lightning Oak Collection

Enter our November competition for the opportunity to take home our Lightning Oak range, including Hair & Body Wash, Soap Bar and Candle & Snuffer. Find the answers on our bespoke interactive map of the British Isles that has been created to unfold the story of our extracts provenance.

Symbol of endurance and courage – and strapping virtues such as strength, honour and resistance – the mighty oak is one of England’s most powerful natural emblems, and the undisputed monarch of the greenwood. Towering of trunk and twisted of twig, the oak stands stoically on many an English village green, watching silently as the storms and seasons and the currents of time come and go, living for as long as 1,000 years.

Unlike its straight-laced cousins overseas, the eccentric English oak grows with endless tangles and twists, and collects gnarls and knuckles along its branches with each year that passes. While weathering life’s storms, folk through the ages have sought strength under the oak’s canopy of rustling boughs, in the soothing knowledge that they are but a dot in the passing of its lifetime.

All you have to do is answer the following question:

HOW LONG CAN AN OAK TREE LIVE FOR?

Noble Isle Congratulates the Olympians and Paralympians

Noble Isle Congratulates the Olympians and Paralympians

The Paralympic flame may have been extinguished but at Noble Isle we are still revelling in London 2012’s unparalleled success. To congratulate our gold medal winning Olympians and Paralympians we sent them all a selection of sumptuous products from our collection. We found out which part of the UK they hailed from and selected Noble Isle products containing natural extracts sourced in or around their home areas.

Needless to say, Yorkshire featured heavily. 'God's Own County', as it is known to its residents, gave us more medals than most participating countries! There was Paralympic archer Danielle Brown from Steeton, David Stone paralympic cyclist from Leeds, Hannah Cockroft a wheelchair athlete from Halifax, Heptathlete Jessica Ennis from Sheffield, Triathlete Alistair Brownlee from Dewsbury and flyweight boxing champion Nicola Adams from Leeds… to name just a few.

Noble Isle also has a Yorkshire connection, albeit a less athletic one, as we work closely with Oldroyd & Sons rhubarb farm in Yorkshire to source the natural extract for our Rhubarb Rhubarb! Yorkshire Triangle Hand Wash and Hand Lotion.

Congratulations on two sporting extravaganzas, a record-breaking medal haul and disabled sport showcased as never before.


Our Fragrances

Our Fragrances

Great fragrances are glamorous, sensual, elegant and enchanting. They awaken special memories and inspire our daydreams. This highly specialised area is without doubt, a key pillar of our products, be it our Shower Gels, Hand Lotions, Shampoos or Candles.

Developing outstanding fragrances demands exceptional levels of expertise and excellence. Formulating with the most exclusive and exquisite fragrance molecules and natural ingredient our aim is to create unique scents that are evocative, individual and memorable, awakening special memories.

All our fragrances are highly complex and develop and evolve with time. For example the fragrance of Perry Pear Shampoo and Conditioner, is of rich orchard fruits blended with floral blossoms (composed of geranium, jasmine and rose) and enriched with patchouli, votive, sandalwood and amber. This gives an overall fruity woody aroma. The fragrance can be broken down into three parts:

1. The top notes: This scent is perceived immediately on application or from the bottle. They have a fresh, immediately apparent quality that is intense, but fleeting - bergamot, lemon, orange blossom and green grass.

2. The middle (or heart) notes: The scent that emerges just prior to when the top notes dissipate from the "heart" or main body of a perfume They are strong, lasting and potent - rose, geranium, jasmine, violet, peach and pear.

3. The Base notes: The scent that appears close to the departure of the middle notes. Their rich, heavy scents emerge slowly and linger. The base and middle notes together are the main theme of a perfume: cedarwood, sandalwood, patchouli, tonka bean and musk.

The next time you wash your hair with our Perry Pear Shampoo and Conditioner see how many of our wonderful scents you can pick out.
