Reasons why you need an A & B Fragrance Lamp!
The Ashleigh & Burwood Fragrance Lamp is the ultimate product to refresh the home!. These fragrance lamps represent quality, luxury and above all style. The stunning ornamental fragrance lamps utilise a century-old catalytic combustion technique that filters airborne odour-causing molecules. In addition the fragrance contained within the fragrance lamp is emitted to provide a gentle fragrance to the room. The fragrance lamp compares favourably to other room fragrance products and is a most efficient diffuser of fragrance, spreading it evenly and quickly around a room.
- We have over 50 fragrances available, from Fresh Linen to Citrus Zest
- There are over 150 Fragrance to choose from in a variety of colours shapes and sizes to suit any room.
The origin of the Fragrance Lamp goes back to 1898 when a French pharmacist created the Catalytic Combustion system to disinfect the air in hospitals. The original models were made of crystal or glass and operated with the same method of purification that is used today: Diffusion by Catalytic Combustion.
What does a Fragrance Lamp do?
The catalytic burner captures and destroys the molecules that carry odours. The mixing of air and the movement from convection ensures that odours are destroyed as well as airborne microorganisms. Catalytic Fragrance Lamps actually purify the air before perfuming it.
While air fresheners and room sprays usually mask odours, Catalytic lamps actively purify, cleanse and perfume the air in a wide area. Common odours in the home produced by cooking, pets, tobacco and exercising can be safely and effectively removed by using Ashleigh & Burwood catalytic lamps.
Ashleigh & Burwood Fragrance Lamp really does help to cleanse and purify the air. Independent tests conducted for Ashleigh & Burwood give the following results for destruction of airborne microorganisms after testing under laboratory conditions:
Dust mites – 99% mortality rate
Escherichia coli bacteria (E. coli) – 99% mortality rate
Five types of mould spores
o Aspergillus niger – 61.5 % mortality rate
o Eurotium amsterdami – 79.6% mortality rate
o Stachybotrys chartarum – 99.9% mortality rate
o Penicillium crustosum – 99.9% mortality rate
o Chaetomium globosum – 99.9% mortality rate
Where can I use my lamp?
There is no particular reason why the Lamp cannot be used in any room in your home, as long as it is on a flat, stable surface away from combustible materials and out of reach of children or pets.
Can I use the Lamp when children or pets are around?
Yes, provided you follow the safety instructions and keep your Lamp out of reach, so that there is no risk of the Lamp being knocked over or touched. Always place your Lamp on a flat stable surface. Remember that the Stone is hot when in use. Always ensure the Crown is on the Lamp when it is in use to prevent contact with the hot Stone.
How long will my Lamp last?
The lamp will last indefinitely as long as the body or neck is not damaged. The question normally means “how long will the stone last?” Provided it is used exclusively with Ashleigh & Burwood’s Lamp Fragrance and is not misused, then each assembly will last for well over 300 uses or over 700 hours. We are still testing stones that have passed 300 uses and still they working at their optimum level. We will update this document when we finally get them to stop working!

How To Get The Most Out Of Your Scented Candle?
Candles are one of the oldest and easiest methods of creating a warm or romantic ambience in the home. Although historically used for creating light and timekeeping, candles have become an essential part of creating an appeasing atmosphere. They can be lighted instantly and require minimum effort to maintain, they can transform a room within seconds with their beautiful fragrances and wonderful designs.
We believe a house isn’t a home until it is able to fulfil your every sense, and candles are an inexpensive and sensible way to complete your home.
Scented candles can range from just £5 to hundreds of pounds, based on the quality of the materials as well as the quality of the fragrance and the amount of fragrance used. But however much you choose to spend every candle is just as easy to set up and maintain as the last. However there are a few things you should be careful of, in order to get the most out of your scented candle.
How To Increase The Life Of Your Scented Candle?
Although everyone knows how to light a candle, there are a few rules every candle user should abide by, not only to stay safe, but also get the most from their candle.
Firstly you want to ensure a smoke free candle; it can smell unpleasant and totally wreck the ambience you intended to create. The best way to do this is to keep your candle away from drafts and ensure the wick is trimmed to 7mm. The wick can also build up a carbon deposit on the tip and this should always be removed, however this usually only occurs when the wick need to be trimmed.
You must also make sure to leave the candle alight long enough for the pool of melted wax to reach the edge of the candle. This will prevent tunnelling and ensure you don’t waste the wax around the outside edge of your candle.
You also want to keep the wick centred to allow the wax to melt evenly, again preventing wastage.
And finally always be careful when using your candle, keep the flame away from flammable materials, keep the candle away from children or pets and never leave a candle unattended. A candle flame burns at over 1000°C so please be very careful.
