Why does catalytic combustion destroy odors but...not the odors of the Maison Berger Paris perfume?
Maison Berger Paris strives to perpetuate and protect its technique. The House has a technical centre in Limoges, carries out R&D permanently and files patents.
There are two zones in the burner. An external part, a catalytic zone, where the temperature reaches around 500°C, which allows for the catalytic oxidation of alcohol and destroys unwanted odors. A central part, with a much lower temperature (200°C), which diffuses the Home Fragrance whilst perfectly preserving the notes and thus guaranteeing excellent olfactory quality.

Why is there isopropyl alcohol in Maison Berger Paris perfumes and not another alcohol?
Attentive to the quality of air indoors, Maison Berger Paris commits to only diffuse substances which are perfectly managed and controlled. Maison Berger Paris works with the best French perfume-makers to develop refined olfactory universes and strives invariably to guarantee the harmlessness of its products. Isopropyl alcohol perfectly meets the promises of quality and harmlessness of Maison Berger Paris.

How do I know which perfume to choose?
Perfume is the heart of our business, and we focus on rich olfactory creations and on the composition of the notes. The rich and varied collections, based on exceptional fragrances, are a real tribute to French tradition and know-how.

After switching on my device, I notice that there is no, or little, mist. What should I do?

 Check that the power cable is properly plugged in and that the diffuser is on.
 The solution used is not suitable for the device. Only Maison Berger Paris ready-to-use solutions guarantee the proper operation of our diffusers.
 If your diffuser flashes 5 times when switched on, this informs you that there is an insufficient amount of perfume in the reservoir. To solve this, just add the required amount in the receptacle.
 Ensure that the quantity of perfume does not exceed the maximum level in the reservoir, which is 80 ml. Otherwise, empty out any excess.
 Check that nothing is contaminating the ultra-sound plate. If there is, clean it with a soft cloth. 
 Inspect the mist output and the slot which may be blocked and remove any obstructions.
 Check that diffusion was not stopped using the remote control (diffusion off button pressed down).

The mist stopped while my device was working. Why is this?

    I noticed sparks when plugging in the electric diffuser, why is this? 
    You must have plugged in the power cable before connecting it to the electric diffuser. However, the power cable must be connected to the diffuser before being connected to the electrical supply. It is essential to do things in this order to avoid any malfunctioning. 

    The diffuser is not turning on. 

    1. Check that the power cable is properly plugged in.
    2. Make sure that the on/off button on the remote control or under the diffuser is properly pressed down.
