Savour the exquisite fragrance of these traditionally made Armenian Papers, which release a pleasing fragrance when lit in the home.
French-Armenian perfumer and creator of La Rose Incense papers, Francis Kurkdjian was keen to pursue his journey eastward. The natural choice was a rose fragrance and this scent blends roses from Iran and Turkey to create a rich juxtaposition of fragrances driven by a voluptuous, fruity rose, like rose petal jam with notes of honey.
Papier d'Arménie incense paper was created more than 120 years ago and is a respected and much-treasured part of Parisian life. These are famous fragranced paper booklets that have been hand soaked in a process that takes more than 6 months. Each booklet contains 36 detachable strips of perfumed paper. To use, tear out a strip, fold it into a fan or concertina pattern, and place it in a burner or other container such as an ashtray. Light one end of the paper and it will begin to smolder, gently emitting an incredible fragrance. The smoke clears the space, it acts as a beautiful deodorizer and uplifts the mood. These strips have been a secret to maintaining an amazing atmosphere in French homes for more than a century.
Each booklet contains 36 detachable strips of perfumed paper.
Instructions: 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.
These 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.
