Apparently these items have been around since the early 1900's! Jean Cocteau and Gabrielle Chanel collected them and today they are symbols of taste and stature. What interested me most was its functionality. Not only does the Lampe Burger diffuse scent softly but effectively, it neutralizes the air in your home! What a beautiful and artistic way to do so without dealing with candle wax, fire hazards and black smoke.
There are many scents available with which to fill the Lampe Berger including Heavenly Spruce for Christmas time, invigorating Tangerine Zests, and musky Winterwood. You can even blend multiple scents together. After trying the Lampe Berger yesterday, I am very impressed with its ability to scent entire rooms but in a very soft fashion. I foresee using this collectible for many years to come!
