Noble Isle and OMEGA House

Noble Isle and OMEGA House

Over the last 3 weeks OMEGA, the official time keepers of the London Olympic Games 2012, made the charming House of St. Barnabus in Soho their home, transforming it into OMEGA House, London’s most luxurious and exclusive members club during the games. OMEGA House hosted a stream of glamorous parties and cultural events with top DJ’s, VIP’s and fascinating guest speakers including, moonwalker Buzz Aldrin.

OMEGA ambassadors, Olympic Medallists and VIP guests including Nicole Kidman, Eddie Redmayne, Jessica Ennis, Michael Phelps, Chad le Clos, Henry Cavill, Kim Catrell, Abhishek Bachchan, Ryan Kwanten and Dan Stevens all enjoyed the exquisite hospitality, divine cocktails, delicious food, private dining, stunning interior and garden of OMEGA House and.....they all got to wash their hands with Noble Isle!

We were delighted and honoured to adorn the ladies bathrooms with our Rhubarb! Rhubarb! Hand Wash and Lotion and the gentlemen’s bathrooms with our Whisky & Water Hand Wash and Lotion. It was thrilling to have some of the most accomplished athletes and famous people and in the world using our products in such a special place during such a momentous occasion for Great Britain.

Our products celebrate the best of the British Isles and are inspired by the wonderful people, places and ingredients that flourish here. We congratulate Team GB for making us proud and thank all those who worked so hard to make the Olympic Games and OMEGA House such a glorious success.

Britain in a bottle...

Our bespoke interactive map of the Great British Isles has been created to unfold the story of our extracts provenance. Every one of our bottles has a story to tell, simply click on a fragrance collection to discover more about our extracts and the people behind them.

We have travelled the length and breadth of the British Isles – from misty moorlands and old English orchards to Highland distilleries and windswept coastal cliffs; to source exceptionally authentic and quintessentially British ingredients which celebrate our rich cultural history.

Each natural extract is sourced from some of the most celebrated producers including Rhubarb from England, Sea Oak from Ireland, Malted Barley and Honey from Scotland and Beets from Wales. Combining these natural extracts with the finest fragrance we have created our sumptuous washes and lotions.

Willow Song Collection

Noble Isle’s Willow Song collection is named after the song sung by Desdemona in Shakespear’s Othello, written by Arthur Sullivan during 1863 and 1864

Blousy and billowing, the willow tree likes to drape itself over the banks of streams and ponds, its soft-green branches weeping gracefully into the water. Poetically as it is visually, the willow has always been a tear-jerker: Shakespeare’s Desdemona sobs herself a river in Othello and Ophelia in Hamlet meets a watery end after climbing despairingly on to a wispy willow branch.

Despite ethereal appearances, the weeping willow is quietly potent: the bark is rich in natural anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, and contains high levels of salicin, the natural forerunner to aspirin. We’ve cheered up our crestfallen willow by pairing it with its joyful watery neighbour, the bright, splashy water lily, whose botanical extract is revered for the soothing, skin-softening benefits it imparts.

Britain in a Bottle Noble Isle sources willow bark and water lily extracts from a soothing stream around the famous Lavenham Walk, a two-mile promenade through the rolling countryside surrounding the medieval English village of Lavenham in Suffolk.
