The history of Papier d’Arménie starts in the 19th century when, on a trip to Armenia, Auguste Ponsot noticed the local people scented their homes by burning benzoin. This traditional and ecologically-sound practice appealed, and he decided to import the product to France.
The "traditionnel" booklet, first produced in 1885, with its sweet, vanilla and balsamic notes evocative of the Far East, contains detachable strips of perfumed paper. It is still produced in the same factory in Montrouge, where only traditional manufacturing methods are used. This elegant Vintage presentation box is inspired by the 1885 graphic style. Each box contains 6 or 12 booklets. Hand crafted in France.
