How long should I keep my lamp burning?
How long should I leave the lamp burning?
Some of the questions we are most frequently asked are related to how long to leave your lamp burning - that is, once you've extinguished the flame, how long before you should cap the lamp?
Well, the amount of time is based on the size of the room you're fragrancing - Lampe Berger recommend you leave the lamp for 1 minute per cubic metre, which for many people doesn't mean much, especially for those of us who still measure in feet and inches.
So to help out we've made this handy little calculator: Just enter the approximate* dimensions of the room you have your lamp in, click 'Go' and it will tell you how long to leave your lamp burning and also roughly how long a 500ml bottle of fragrance will last (assuming you use the lamp once a day).
Room Dimensions (metres)
For a 0 cubic metre room, you should leave your lamp burning for 0 minutes. A 500ml bottle should last 0 days.
Room Dimensions (feet)
For a 0 cubic foot room, you should leave your lamp burning for 0 minutes. A 500ml bottle should last 0 days.
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, 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.
