This limited series Papier d’Arménie® is a reissue of the very first box made in 1900. This box contains 12 Papier d’Arménie® Tradition booklets.
Papier d’Arménie® shows off its history with an old fashioned design featuring some of the honours and awards that have been won since 1885.
Capable of storing 12 booklets of 36 perfumed strips, this box constitutes a veritable journey back in time.
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.
Francis Kurkdjian, renowned perfumer and designer, created the fragrances for Papier d’Arménie range.
Each booklet consists of thirty-six pre-cut paper strips, in twelve sheets of three.
The papier d’Arménie is used by setting light to a single strip, detached from the booklet one at a time, folded concertina-style, and placed on a heat-proof surface.
It can also be used without being lit. Simply place one in a cupboard or drawer and it will slowly release a soft, sweet fragrance.
