Papier d’Arménie is a type of Armenian paper that produces an aroma when burned.
These Papier d’Arménie booklets and this burner are ones of my favorite things I ever got. The box comes with 6 booklets and 3 different scents: La Rose, Tradition & Annee Armenie. I use those around 4 times a week and it makes my home smells so nice and welcoming.
All is needed to do is tear off one strip from one of the booklet, fold it like an accordion, put it on the burner, light it, and voilà! It smells amazing.
Papier d’Arménie’s Discovery: The history of Papier d’Arménie starts in the 19th century when, on a trip to Armenia, Auguste Ponsot noticed the local people scented and disinfected their homes by burning benzoin. Renowned since ancient times for its anti-sceptic, healing and expectorant properties, benzoin resin used to be applied externally to treat asthma, coughs and hoarseness. He decided to import the product to France.
