Lamps & Lamp Fragrances
Having stocked Lampe Berger since 1988, we really can say that it is one of the best gift products in our portfolio. An industry leader in air purification, Lampe Berger's popularity has grown dramatically in recent years as consumers have realised the pitfalls of conventional fragrance burners and candles. Combine this unique functionality with the aesthetic appeal of the beautifully crafted 'Lampes' and you have a fabulous gift idea and essential household item.
How does it work? The basic function of a Lampe Berger is to "eliminate bad odours by cleansing the air, whilst scenting and decorating the home." In fact, it will eliminate 68% of airborne bacteria and is ideal for combating cigarette smoke, cooking odours, pet odours, paint fumes and many other forms of household pollution. The patented catalytic burner destroys odours and purifies the air, before dispersing the fragrance of your choice. 45 minutes of use is all that is necessary to purify and fragrance a room of up to 300 square feet.
In 1898, inventor Maurice Berger - a Parisian pharmacist - utilised a unique process of catalytic combustion with surprising results. In just a few minutes, the proliferation of bacteria in the air was slowed down, the air was purified and bad odours eliminated. The Lampe Berger history had begun. Due to these anti-bacterial effects, it was initially reserved for use within the medical world, achieving great success during World War I.
With this success, the greatest creative minds of the period - Lalique, Gallé, and the crystal workshops of Daum and Baccarat - were quick to craft their visions into lamps. Berger lamps were fashionable objects in the sitting rooms of the "Belle Époque" and were given a new function when fragrance was added to the alcohol.
All Lampe Berger burners or 'Lampes' vary dramatically in appearance and are compatible with the wide range of Lampe Berger Fragrances. Fragrances are split into groups and cater for all tastes. You can even dilute a fragrance with the neutral version to lower the impact. More than 40 different fragrances are available, in 500ml and 1 litre sizes.
