The La Tee Da fragrance lamp catalytic conversion process is same as that used by old time European catalytic burner (effusion lamp) of Justus Von Liebig. Using this catalytic conversion La Tee Da fragrance lamps are highly efficient at sanitizing indoor air, not masking it. These fragrance lamps kill bacteria, including odor causing bacteria, and unpleasant smells from dirty laundry, pets, mold, musty closets, and bathrooms. Frying fish tonight? No problem. La Tee Da to rescue! Cooking odors neutralized, fast. Not just temporarily masked. Automobile manufacturers utilize same catalytic conversion process on cars we drive to reduce or eliminate noxious fumes, smoke, and odors from automobile exhaust.
In Europe, before days of modern electronic indoor air purification, catalytic burner (effusion lamp) was used extensively in institutions such as hospitals, medical clinics and other facilities that required a high degree of indoor air purity. German holistic chemist Justus Von Liebig discovered that through oxidation of primary alcohols effusion lamp was efficient in neutralizing bacteria, allergens, and other impurities in air including smoke and foul odors.
Aware of health benefits of effusion lamp, French began to add liquid fragrance to their effusion lamps. Leave it to French to transform effusion lamp into home fragrance delivery system we today call fragrance lamps. http://www.coronetgiftsolutions.com/la-tee-da_fragrance_lampes.asp Fragrance lamps have for many years been a fixture in homes across European Continent and are rapidly gaining popularity in North America. Why? Because fragrance lamps sanitize as well as fragrance your indoor oxygen. Neurologist Alan Hirsh director of Smell and Taste Treatment Center of Chicago has studied fragrance and positive relation it can have as an aid in learning, reducing or increasing desire to eat, and in arousal.
Retailers and restaurateurs are taking notice of power of fragrance. Case studies of restaurants and retail shops using fragrance delivery systems to create ambiance and a perceived pleasurable shopping experience are quite satisfied with results of fragrance. Customer surveys consistently prove that fragrance ranks high among reasons for customer loyalty to a particular store or eatery. Also customer word of mouth advertising regarding fragrant environment brings in new customers. Retailers are exploring power of fragrance, or scent to stimulate favorable emotional and behavioral responses of consumers. Hirsh also points out that Nobel Prize in medicine was last year granted to researchers who discovered how olfactory receptor cells enable humans to recognize and store in memory 10.000 different odors. Hirsh states, "I think we are going to be seeing interior decorating with smells in future, same way we do with color." Sounds good to me. Decorate my bedroom in Verbena, my bathroom in Lavender, and my kitchen in Cinnamon Apple. Fragrance me with Bayberry in den and Fresh Cut Clover in laundry room. Sound good to you too? You bet it does!
