Papier d’Armenie was created in Paris in 1885, a few years before the Eiffel Tower was built!
The idea came to August Ponsot from a trip to Armenia, a country where benzoin resin derived from the bark of trees was used to purify the air. August, along with Pharmacist Henri Rivier created their own recipe by dissolving the resin witch alcohol then soaking on blotting papers.
