Papier d’Arménie Tradition Booklet
Created more than 120 years ago, the famous Papier d’Arménie® booklet contains detachable strips of perfumed paper. It is still produced in the same factory in Montrouge, where only traditional
manufacturing methods are used.
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).
