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.
1900 Box is limited series reissue of the very first box made in 1900. This box contains 12 Papier d'Arménie® Tradition booklets. Hand crafted in France.
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.
