Lampe Berger Paris Is Now Maison Berger Paris. Maison Berger Oil Lamps first began in Paris, France in 1898 in the dispensary of a Parisian pharmacist, Maurice Berger. Trying to find a process to purify the air, he discovered the Maison Berger Oil Lamps by looking for the beneficial effect of the catalytic combustion of a specific product, ozoalcohol, and he filed the patent for a "new lamp system for purifying the air". Now you can purify the air in your home, while filling rooms with beautiful fragrances.*Styles, colors and fragrances may vary in our showroom.
