Even though we are a young startup, some awesome magazines and blog have already spotted us !

Aromatherapy & Our Inspiration

Aromatherapy has natural virtues for well-being; relaxing, energizing, purifying, helping focus, setting a right sleeping atmosphere, or even aphrodisiac, and a lot more.

We started this project because essential oils have changed our lives in some situations, they are very efficient natural well-being solutions and we wondered why so many people didn’t use them.

The reason wasn’t hard to find : over the hundreds of people we interviewed, most of them had actually tried diffusers in the past, before leaving them after an average of 3 uses, because it was too messy & time consuming!

The Product

We created Lumiere so you don't have to remember or use your precious time to take care of the diffuser.


• Magnify your home with sight & scents

Lumiere diffuser and capsules are made with high quality materials and, thanks to its elegant design, will integrate any environment. We worked with renowned French nose to create the finest blends with 100% natural essential oils.



• Be pampered by your smart well-being companion 

Lumiere takes care of you all day long, automatically
Lumiere takes care of you all day long, automatically

Thanks to the built-in intelligence in the smartphone application, Lumiere will understand exactly when a diffusion will be appreciated.

So you can wake up with more energy every morning, when your diffuser triggers with the ringing of your alarm clock, or always finding your home with a relaxing atmosphere as you get back from work.

• Control, change & program your home's atmosphere in a single tap

Even though we automate some useful diffusion, you can turn Lumiere on or off when you want with a single tap on your mobile app. The 4 capsules that you've chosen are detected and displayed on your screen.

• Enjoy the best essential oils and the best of them with the safest technology

Changing an oil has never been so fast & easy!
Changing an oil has never been so fast & easy!

We have invented a whole new way of plugging essential oil, and even just scent in a diffuser, it now takes less than a second to set or change a capsule;  it requires no cleaning, no heating, and it's absolutely silent !

Today, two patents have been filed on the diffuser and the capsule.

The App

Lumiere comes with a user-friendly application, available & free for iOS and Android users :


Why Lumiere is better for aromatherapy?

We are using the most efficient & innovative diffusion technology for our diffuser. 
There is a lot of ways to use essential oils and spread them in the air, but we’ve chosen to use a piezo diffusion, here is why:

  • First of all, it’s a cold diffusion: all the properties of the oils are kept intact for the most efficient aromatherapy benefits.
  • We’re spreading oils only, there is no water in the whole system. That means once again that the diffusion will be more efficient and it can spread the oils in larger rooms, because water diffusion creates mixed drops with essential oil & water, the drops are heavier and therefore fall within a short range of the diffuser.
  • Piezo diffusion is totally silent.


Eco-friendliness



Capsules & Refilling

Our capsule range or your own essential oil ? You have the choice ! 

Because we created Lumiere to make everything simpler, we have prepared a range of 10 benefit capsules with our expert partners in Paris. They are 100% natural & organic !

We also know you might like to use your own oils & blends, that you might have a favorite brand that’s making miracles for you. And that’s fine, that’s why we give the possibility to get Lumiere empty capsules, that you can fill & refill yourself !

When you pledge for one diffuser or more, here is the choice you’ll have for your capsules:

Our Team 

Team Lumiere was at CES 2016 in Las Vegas. It was an extraordinary opportunity to meet new people and get very positive feedbacks on our diffuser. Have a look at our “Relax zone”!

This is us, in early 2016, but everything started way earlier ! 

What was final graduation project became a company when Menghan & Thibault meet in January 2015, and this was the start of our company !

We had the CTO / CEO team, and were ready to improve people's well-being !

Menghan & Thibault when they first met, at Ecole Centrale Paris

After a few months of working both on the product first prototype & all the market research and customer interviews, we started realizing we needed an extra person to have a third brain in the team, especially with hardware skills. This is when, in May 2015, Adrien joined the party !

And they were three !
And they were three !

We focused from that point on our goals: creating prototypes, testing them, improving them with customers feedback, and getting ready for our kickstarter campaign !

We incorporated our company in July 2015 and became associates !

Things became official !
Things became official !

The same week we filed our first patent, to protect our invention on the diffuser !

We have come a long way since our first prototype, both in terms of design and usage... 

  • The yellow one was our very first proof of concept, made at school with a 3D printer, in April 2015 !
  • The blue one was our second design and prototype, sill 3D printed, it came out in September 2015. We actually made a teaser on youtube with it. Want to check it out? https://youtu.be/hMbwBaV-kqo
  • The white one was the same design, but more robust, in October 2015!
  • And finally, with the help of our great design partners from Fritsch-Durisotti, and a lot of customer feedbacks and reflexions on how to make the greatest possible diffuser, we built the final design prototype in December 2015!

We were ready to go to CES in January 2016, and to start our pre-order campaign on Kickstarter!

The project started one year and a half ago... Today marks the day when it actually comes to life!

Risks and challenges

We are really excited about launching the smartest essential oil diffuser, Lumiere. Since WE -team Lumiere- would not be able to bring it to life without YOU -backers-, we highly value your trust, and we attach great importance to making this project transparent to you. Lumiere is committed to high quality, both in terms of product and service. Therefore, our satisfaction will come when your diffuser in your hands, as you wanted it, when you wanted it. And we will keep you informed along the way to get there.

We have worked hard on designing and building the first prototypes. As a hardware project we are fully aware that there will be challenges of manufacturing, production, shipping and more. We will count on our commitment and passion, as well as the experience of our advisory board members to meet these challenges and solve them as quickly as we can.

Lumiere diffuser is currently in the design for manufacturing phase, which will be over when we know how many diffusers go in the first production batch, or in another words, how many you have pledged! Depending on the number of backers around the world, Lumiere diffuser will apply for certifications for different countries.

Thank you!
Team Lumiere
