Ashleigh & Burwood Large Lamp
The origin of the Fragrance Lamp goes back to 1898 when a French pharmacist created the Catalytic Combustion system to disinfect the air in the hospitals. The original models were made of crystal or glass and operated with the same method of purification that is used today: Diffusion by Catalyic Combustion.
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 airbourne microorganisms. Catalytic Fragrance Lamps actually purify the air before perfuming it.
In the 1920's designers were commissioned to create aesthetic bottles to be offered to private consumers. The lamps, which had previously cleansed and purified the air exclusively in an industrial setting, now came into the private home.
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.
Is your flame dancing? When a flame flickers too much; it can produce unwanted smoke which can be caused by:
To ensure a clean burn, extinguish your candle using one of our candle snuffers, trim the wick to 3mm using our wick trimmers and finally make sure it isn’t in direct line of any air currents – then simply relight and enjoy. You can find these everyday candle care products online and instore
To prevent tunnelling and memory rings; the first burn of your candle is the most important!
To ensure you get an even and clean burn throughout your candle’s life - burn your candle for 30 minutes for every 1cm in diameter, so for example a large jar is approximately 8cm in diameter, so we would recommend to burn it for at least 4 hours to ensure the first layer of wax melts to the edge of the candle before you extinguish it.
If the wax is not allowed to melt to the edge; the candle will create a memory ring around the wick and it can then tunnel. You can support the burn of your candle with the use of our illumalids which helps to steady the flame and keep in the heat, encouraging an even burn.
When there is approximately 1cm of wax remaining at the bottom of your jar candle, we recommend this is where you should discontinue its use as the flame nears the base of the glass it can get very hot – by doing this you will avoid possible heat damage that can be caused to surfaces or the container.
Candles are a fantastic source of creating the right mood! For a really dramatic effect; gather three or more candles in varying heights and/or forms in the centre of your table for a beautiful and dramatic display. You can also influence the height of a candle through jar candle sleeves and holders.
When using sampler votive candles, for the most effective burn it’s best to select a holder that mimics the size and shape of the candle. There’s a huge collection of votive holders to choose from to suit any décor and can be found in store and online.
Our small Sampler Votive Candles are called Samplers because they’re a great way to sample and experiment with new or different fragrances – with a huge range of sampler fragrances available, you’d definitely find something to your taste. Alternatively, if you prefer a flameless fragrance with a powerful throw, our selection of tarts wax melts are another way in which to experiment with new fragrances in your home
These small but powerful forms also provide an opportunity to experiment with fragrance mixologywhere you can create your own unique fragrance just for you by using complimentary fragrances together.
Where you have a particularly large room or open plan living space, we recommend choosing wax that has a wider pool of melted wax which will give off a wide ranging throw – choose from classic loved forms including:
Our fragrances are true to life and just like their names; the intensity of those fragrances can vary. If you want a fragrances that is more or less intense think of the strength of its inspiration and you’ll be on the right track.
Are you struggling to smell a candle after it has been burning for a while? Sometimes like with any other fragrance product you may temporarily lose the ability to smell the fragrance due to repeated exposure, whereas other’s new to it will detect it.
The best way to reconnect with your favourite fragrance is to try out a new fragrance for a while, before returning to your favourite fragrance and the smell should return.
Take a tip from the experts and sniff coffee beans between your candle scents, just like the master perfumers from long ago who learned that coffee beans will neutralise your sense of smell allowing you to enjoy the next fragrance. Alternatively – you can use the sleeve of your shirt or other fabric
How to use your lamp
1 Stand your lamp on a spill resistant surface. Remove the snuffer-cap and the stone/wick assembly. Fill your lamp up to 2/3 full with one of Ashleigh & Burwood's unique Lamp Fragrances.
2 Insert the stone/wick assembly into the lamp. Always keep the lamp upright when filled to prevent spillage of Lamp Fragrance.
3 Cover the stone with the snuffer cap (If the stone is not covered the Lamp Fragrance will evaporate) and allow the wick to soak for 20-30 minutes. Place your lamp on a heat resistant surface before lighting.
4 Remove the snuffer-cap and light the stone. NEVER leave the burning lamp unattended. Ensure you locate the lamp away from any combustible materials.
5 Blow out the flame after about 2-3 minutes. NEVER cover the open flame with the snuffer-cap or decorative lid or you may damage your lamp.
6 CAUTION: The stone is now hot! It will remain hot (without flame) as it continues to draw fragrance through the wick.
7 Use the supplied decorative-lid to cover the stone. The lamp is now working to clean the air and fragrance your home.
8 Allow the lamp to fragrance your home for up to a maximum of 40 minutes before extinguishing.
9 After 40 minutes, stop the fragrancing by removing the decorative lid. (CAUTION - may be hot) and cover the stone with the snuffer cap. This will stop the process and prevent the lamp fragrance form evaporating when the lamp is not in use.
NOTE: The lamps can be known as Catalytic Lamps, Catalytic Fragrance Lamps, Effusion Lamps, or simply as Fragrance Lamps.
We recommend when changing fragrances that you remove the wick from the lamp and allow the wick to dry before placing into another fragrance.
We also recommend when using the lamp, not to burn the lamp until it runs dry as this can cause excessive wear to the wick.
