Can you smell it? The Smell of Fall & Thanksgiving Rolled Into One! @LampeBerger_CAN Lamp & Savory Apple Tart Fragrance

Brrr ... the cooler weather means closing windows to keep the warm air in and the cold air out. But in my house the windows are generally kept closed year round because of allergies. If helps to keep the pollen count in the house down and minimize some of my allergy symptoms. We change and wash the filter in the furnace regularly and do all we can to reduce the dust, pollen and allergens. It is a must if I am to survive my seasonal allergies, but closed windows means reduced air flow and stale air. 

I've never been a fan of spray air fresheners because I often find I react to the scent or aerosol. Candles frighten me because of the flame and fire hazard if left unattended, and I don't want to babysit candles. Did I mention I live with two teenage boys so a little odour elimination and not just masking "teen boy smells" near the front hall and their shoes is much appreciated. 

So what is a girl to do?

Well let's have a look at another approach; Lampe Berger Paris. Fresh air without sprays, open flames or open windows. Instead they use a process developed by Maurice Berger in 1898 called diffusion by catalysis to eliminate odours and release one of their many fragrance options. 

Setting up your lamp is straight forward, and it comes with easy to follow instructions. "The duration of the burner's life is 140 hours of diffusion" or "one year of intense usage." 

For me it is a given that a product has to do what it is suppose to do, and do it well, but I also strongly believe that both function and aesthetically pleasing design can and should co-exist. I want things to look nice and add to the decor of a room as well as do the task they are design for. My personal design preference is the simple lines of mid century modern design. When there is no ornate decoration a product item must rely on the quality of the design and materials used to stand out. This period of design valued functionality as much as design, but was not willing to sacrifice one for the other. 

The Lampe Berger Bonbon Orange  lamp like mid century modern design, also has clean lines and design. You can feel the quality and weight of the glass the minute you hold it. It loses none of it's functionality by being beautiful to look at, and the understated elegance easily fits into any style of decor.  But, if the Bonbon is not your taste Lampe Berger has many styles  and fragrances  to choose from.

This is why Lampe Berger is at the top of my Holiday gift idea list. The natural wood lamp is perfect for my sister in law, my sister would love the Bonbon in the Frosted Mint colour, and the Pomme Boxed Set in Rouge would make a lovely gift for my Mother in Law. Plus new lamps and fragrances just in time for the Holidays.

But this one is for me!

Yep, just me Cathy thinking out loud about beautiful pure air.

Note: I received the Lampe Berger Bonbon Orange lamp and Savory Apple Tart fragrance free of cost for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own, and reflect my personal experience with this product and brand. 


  1. I would love to try a Lampe Berger lamp out. They sound so awesome! Do they really last for 140 hours of diffusion or one year of intense usage?

  2. My mom has an older Lampe Berger! She loves it and still uses it to this day! =)

  3. The smell sounds amazing. Yes, I bet it smells that great! I've got just the person that would love this for Christmas.
