Lately, we have been highlighting a few of our favourite things and we certainly couldn’t highlight our favourites without mentioning Lampe Berger. We started carrying Lampe Berger the first year we opened and it’s a product that has been popular with you guys – and for a good reason!
Lampe Berger is an air purifying system that uses a system of diffusion by catalysis. Basically, it eliminates odours and bacteria in the air and leaves a fragrance. Now, the best thing about Lampe Berger is that its catalytic process actually eliminates the odour and bacteria rather than just masking it – like some room fragrances out there. Trust us, we were a little sceptical at first too, but it really does work. Many people use their Lampe Berger daily to purify the air, but it also comes in handy when you have pesky odours in your house that you want removed ASAP. Now, when we were told that it would eliminate the smell of fish after dinner, or the smell of wet dog – we decided to try it for ourselves. And, of course, it worked wonders! Lampe Berger uses a catalytic burner that reaches 140 degrees Fahrenheit to combust a special alcohol based fragrance and make your house smell fresh – it’s science!
Lampe Berger is great for all year round because there are a multitude of fragrances to choose from. Craving something fresh and summery? Try the lavender fragrance! Looking for something warm and Christmasy for the winter months? Lampe Berger releases seasonal fragrances every holiday! We’re actually pretty excited to go to the buying show in August to see what new fragrances and lampes will be available for fall.
And speaking of seasonal – Lampe Berger has developed a new scent to keep the mosquitos away! It’s called Summer Night and you burn it just as you normally would, but outside.
The bottles are also beautiful and add a decorative touch to any room. There really is a Lampe Berger for every style, too. They make a great gift for the person who is hard to buy for (we all know that person). The bottles are often released for a limited amount of time and some of them are now collectors items worth thousands of dollars! One of our extravagant favourites is the monkey.
Lampe Berger is a French company that has been around since 1989 when Maurice Berger, a pharmaceutical dispenser, invented a system of diffusion by catalysis to help with sepsis in hospitals. It then became used for homes and eventually turned into a decorative piece as well. Over 5 million litres of fragrances and 800,000 lamps are sold every year around the world and we are so happy to be able to bring this really innovative little bottle to you guys.
