Ocean Breeze Lampe Berger

How do you freshen your house?  If you have an idyllic cottage by the sea in beautiful Maine, and it’s a perfect summer day, you’d throw open your windows and let the ocean breezes fill your home, leaving it smelling like the wind coming off the open water.

Well, we live in Houston, not Maine, and no matter what time of year, Houston is not a “throw open your windows” kind of town.  More like “turn on the AC” due to the heat and humidity.

So how to freshen the house?

Lampe Berger's "Ocean Breeze" fragrance ($19.95, half liter; $32.95 liter size) removes odors and leaves your home smelling wonderful!

Ann’s has the answer:  Lampe Berger.   Just put a little in your lampe and light it to remove odors and leave your home smelling just the way you like.  We have lots of fragrances, see list.   And you’ll find lampes in lots of colors and styles, too.

Come to Ann’s and pick up some Ocean Breeze and you’re there.   Lampe Berger freshens even with the AC running and all the windows closed.
