Papier d’ Arménie was born in the late 19th century. During a trip to Armenia, the French Auguste Ponsot noticed that the inhabitants perfumed and disinfected their houses by burning benzoin resin. Seduced by this traditional and ecological practice, he decided to import the product to France and translated its unique qualities to the now classic brand of fragrant paper strips. The vintage look of the brand is still intact.
Use the strips to infuse your interior with scents reminiscent of the Orient, and remove any bad ones from cooking, tobacco, animals, etc. A Papier d’Arménie booklet contains 36 strips. Detach a strip, fold it in the shape of an accordion, and place it on its edge on a heat-resistant support. Light it, then blow out the flame to avoid igniting it, because it must burn slowly. You can also simply put the leaflets in a drawer for a softer, slower release of fragrance.
