I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit.’ Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion. – Muhammad Ali

Their history

Designed in 1898 to purify the air in hospitals, the small catalytic lamp created by pharmacy dispenser Maurice Berger, quickly became very popular with the public. Redesigned by famous designers and embraced by leading figures from the art community (Coco Chanel, Picasso, Colette and Jean Cocteau), it was then fitted with a perfuming function and gradually became a style icon, appreciated for its sleek design and its delicate fragrances.

The Lampe Berger is a functional and attractive accessory which has spanned the years, purifying indoor air and adding an elegant or contemporary touch to every home. – Maison Berger

We offer an array of lamps and over 25 fragrances from which to choose. If you don’t own one, consider ordering a Starter kit beginning @ $49.99. It includes everything you need to get started.
