Papier d’Arménie is the oldest room freshener in paper form, produced in France since 1885. Its scent of slightly sweet vanilla with a touch of balsam from styrax resin conjures up the orient. The paper strips are soaked in styrax resin (also known as benzoin) dissolved in alcohol, and are excellent at neutralizing unpleasant odors. To use, simply fold a strip accordion-like, light it and immediately blow out again and let it smolder.
"Tradition": first produced in 1885, has sweet, vanilla and balsamic notes evocative of the Far East.
"Arménie": The aromas of incense and myrrh fit well with the woody and vanilla notes. The booklet is the outcome of a meeting Francis Kurkdjian, the famous perfumer.
"Rose": redesigned by Francis Kurkdjian. With roses imported from Iran and Turkey, it builds a dual fragrance conveyed by a full-bodied rose, fruity as petal jam with a mellow touch.
