Created more than 120 years ago, the famous Papier d'Arménie® booklet contains detachable strips of perfumed paper. It is still produced in the same factory in Montrouge, where only traditional manufacturing methods are used.
Its 1885 formula remains unchanged but its color is now eggshell marching the “Arménie” and “La Rose” booklets.
The paper owes its unique pleasant fragrance to benzoin resin. Without it, Papier d'Arménie® would never have become what it is. Whilst on a trip to Armenia, Auguste Ponsot discovered the resin's disinfecting qualities and subsequently decided to introduce them to France. Renowned since ancient times for its antiseptic, healing and expectorant properties, benzoin balm has been traditionally applied externally to treat asthma, coughs and hoarseness.
Instructions for use
Tear off one strip, fold it like an accordion and place it on its longest thinest side on a heat-resistant surface. Light it, blow gently so that the paper does not burn up (Papier d’Arménie® should burn slowly).
Papier d’Arménie® can also be used without burning. Tear off entire sheets and place them in wardrobes, dressings, chest of drawers, books, etc. They will be perfumed with a subtle, delicate scent.
Papier d’Arménie® can be used all year round to scent your home and create an atmosphere of well-being.
• Burn one strip at a time, 3 to 4 times a week • Ventilate your home regularly • Never leave a burning strip unattended • Do not leave the product within reach of children.
