Compared to other home fragrance products, the key thing that a Fragrance Lamp does when perfuming a room, is not just to release fragrance into the air, but also at the same time to actively destroy malodour particles. Products such as sprays, candles and diffuser simply attempt to mask background odours, but when the fragrance fades the undesirable odour will still be present. A Fragrance Lamp can actively remove the malodour. The Lamp actively purifies, cleanses and perfumes 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 the Lamp.
Another aspect is the ability to distribute fragrance faster and further than any of the other product formats. During the catalytic reaction, the stone/wick assembly acts like a tiny engine actively and rapidly diffusing fragrance into the air, with the added effect of the convection current helping the fragrance to spread much more quickly through the air.
