Rhubarb Rhubarb! The Original

Rhubarb Rhubarb! The Original

Rhubarb has been a treasured crop in Britain for hundreds of years and still remains popular today. Today you can find rhubarb all year round in shops, but this has not always been the case. During the railway age, the fruit had become such a fashionable delicacy that it commanded a dedicated train service, dubbed the Rhubarb Express, to speed it from Yorkshire to London, from where it was whisked off to European capitals.

Traditionally used in cooking, Rhubarb is also loaded with vitamin C and calcium as well as invigorating and cleansing skin properties, making it the perfect pairing for our hand duo. Noble Isle sources ‘forced’ rhubarb extract from E. Oldroyd & Sons, a sixth-generation rhubarb farm situated in the Yorkshire Triangle. This extract is blended into Rhubarb Rhubarb! Hand Wash and Hand Lotion and the fragrance exudes bittersweet notes of Rhubarb, Juniper Berry, Rosemary, Tarragon, Moss and Cedarwood - reminiscent of the dewy Yorkshire spring.

Launched in May 2012, all who experience the quintessentially British Rhubarb Rhubarb! fine fragrance are instantly captivated by the distinct, sophisticated and tart fine fragrance. It’s no wonder then, that Rhubarb Rhubarb! has become one of our bestselling fragrances and firm favourites of top restaurants and hotels within the British Isles including BAFTA, Le Gavroche, The Savoy and the House of Holland studio.

Mothering Sunday

Mothering Sunday

Mothering Sunday has long since been a British tradition, dating back to the 1600’s. Celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent, this year falling on the 30th March, it’s a day to honour our beloved mother’s and thank them for their unconditional love and support.  The tradition has since spread across the world and is now celebrated in 46 different countries (though on seperate dates). 

If you’re looking for something extra special to gift mum this Mother’s Day, look no further than our sumptuous Willow Song collection. Featuring extracts of soothing willow bark and water lily, sourced from the medieval town of Lavenham, this unreservedly romantic fragrance is remindful of floaty green florals and mellow woods with top notes of Rose Petal and Ivy, moving into heart notes of Watermelon and Lily of the Valley with lingering base notes of Cedarwood and Musk.

The lavish body cream smoothes and softens the skin, with enriching shea butter, extracts of willow bark known for its natural anti-bacterial properties and water lily, known for its skin soothing properties, which together leave skin luxuriously hydrated. The Willow Song Diffuser would sit beautifully on your mum’s bedroom dressing table and fill her boudoir with this unique and delicate fine fragrance. The Candle and Bath & Shower gel would make the offering complete, a glorious gift for any mum.
