French Friday ~~ Lampe Berger

By Vintagefrenchchic

Happy French Friday!

I would like to say that the weeks are just flying by…and in a way they are.  But this Winter is just draaaaaaggggiing on.  I know I have posted about it before…and truly, I am not whining (much).  However, now that March is on the horizon, I am getting anxious for Winter–for SNOW–to be gone.  But sadly, there is absolutely NO HOPE of that in the coming weeks.  Last night we got another few inches and the forecast is calling for more in the coming days.  And, may ask, where do we put it??  LOOK!

My backyard:

  Do you see that mound between the tree and the bird feeder, in the background a bit?  That would be my park bench.

 Do you know that I can’t see cars that are parked in front of my house on the street?  And notice the snow piles across the street…taller than my neighbor’s truck!  This is craziness.

Despite my utter disbelief in the shroud of whiteness around me, I have had a cozy time of it this year.  Lighting candles and the fireplace, being curled up with a book or a good movie–those are the things that make Winter bearable.  Well, that and opening packages.

This week I happily received two items that were “Made in France”.  I already told you about my Breton Shirt that I ordered.  I got it in on Wednesday.  And I love it except I have to exchange it for a size up.  Grrrr.  I worried about this as I ordered it.  I am often between sizes–sometimes a Medium fits, sometimes I need a Large.  This time I needed the Large.  Oh those tiny French people!  I am so envious.  The company is great with doing exchanges so I sent it off yesterday and will patiently wait for the next one to arrive.  Too stinkin’ cold to wear it anyway.

The other item I received was my “Paris Chic” fragrance for my Lampe Berger.  Do you use a Lampe Berger?  I first saw these years ago in a store in South Haven, Michigan while we were camping one year.  I was very tempted to buy one but for whatever reason (probably cost), I never did.  Then about a year ago, I found one at Goodwill for $9.99.  Score!  I was happy to have found one so reasonably…but then I never got around to getting any oil for it.  I totally planned to.  In fact, I tried to get some at that store in South Haven–only to find out the store is gone.  Figures.  I was hoping to smell fragrances before buying so I just kind of gave up the idea and the Lampe Berger has sat, empty and useless, on a bottom shelf in my living room.

But recently someone pinned this on Pinterest:

Paris Chic - Dreams of exploration - home fragrance - perfume diffuser - lampe berger paris

“Paris Chic”!  How could I NOT buy that for my home?  I decided to buy it without a smell preview.  Risky, I know.  It arrived the same day as my French Breton shirt.  What a great day!

 I fired it up and was impressed with how the whole thing works…but I am not sure I am “in love” with the fragrance.  It has a very strong rose scent–a bit overpowering.  I like floral fragrance but I like it better when mingled with other scents that subdue it.  No worries though…I will use it all up.  But I think next time I will try a fruity fragrance–pear or grapefruit.

I like the fact that my house now smells Frenchy!  If you use a Lampe Berger, can you recommend a scent?

Have a great weekend!  And don’t forget to visit Cupcake Caramel for more French goodness.
