Older than the Eiffel tower, Papier d'Armenie was born in Paris in 1885 as a result of the experiments of a chemist and a scientific.
In 2006, during the year of Armenia in France, the famous French perfumer Armenian-born Francis Kurkdjian gave his own recreation of this historical recipe.
He also created in 2009 the special light rose scent.
In order to use the Papier d’Arménie correctly, you first have to take a strip from a sheet in the booklet, fold it like an ‘accordion’ and heat it carefully: the Papier d’Arménie will gently burn (without a flame), and gradually spread its aromatic and purifying fragrance.
Today the Papier d’Arménie is again used as an alternative air freshener, as a replacement for incense or chemical air fresheners. Because Papier d’Arménie has, above its vanilla-like fragrance, a few interesting qualities: it repels insects, and its fragrance is strong enough to repulse penetrating bad smells, like tobacco or oil. Moreover, some healing and pain-relieving effects are usually assigned to benzoin: it is said to be effective against, for example, asthma and severe cough, and it fosters the healing of wounds.
By the way, the Papier d’Arménie knows a very interesting use for the bibliophiles amongst us: old books often develop an unpleasing musty smell. To prevent this, you can place a strip of Papier d’Arménie between your books, so that its vanilla-like fragrance can spread through the pages of the whole book. Your lecture will never have been so comfortable! A single strip is enough to perfume the whole house and remove unpleasant odours from cooking, tobacco, pets, etc…
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.
