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 thinnest 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.
