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. Each sheet has three uses.
A wonderful scent-- Fold the strip into an accordion shape, place on a dish, ignite, then blow out flame. The paper burns off leaving a pleasant deodorizing scent. 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 ancient room deodorizer, Papier d’Arménie (Paper of Armenia), has been trusted for more than one hundred years to quickly and naturally purify the air with a warm, familiar ambiance. After cooking or near the family pet, fold a single paper accordion-style, light an end and quickly blow it out allowing it to burn slowly. Use the terracotta holder specially made for this traditional and convenient incense alternative.

The Paris suburb of Montrouge is the site of the workshop where traditional skills have always been used to make Papier d’Arménie. Its production involves several stages: preparing the aromatic bath, salinising the paper, drying it in an oven, resting and finishing – that is, cutting the paper into leaves, perforating the strips, assembling the booklets and finally packing them for you.
