Papier d'Arménie


Current stock: 0

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, upon noticing the resin's disinfecting qualities he decided to import the product 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.

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.

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). Burn one piece 3-4 times per week

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.

Ventilate the room regularly. Do not leave a slat burning unsupervised. Do not leave the product within the reach of children. Avoid inhaling the smoke directly.
