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. This traditional and ecologically-sound practice appealed, and he decided to import the product to France.
Nowadays a staple in French homes, the Papier d' Armenie is a natural air deodorizer made from the dried sap of the Styrax tree bonded to paper. In keeping with the spirit of Papier d'Arménie, the candles are produced using the same traditional manufacturing methods and classic scent.
All products are made in France using traditional techniques.
