This »Armenian paper« neutralises unpleasant smells from used ashtrays, frying fat, cat litter and such like. It is made by soaking the paper in a solution of incense resin and alcohol. This paper comes from a factory near Paris, belonging to the descendants of Auguste Ponsot - who first brought the idea from Armenia in 1885.
To use: Fold a strip of the paper concertina fashion, light it and then extinguish it immediately. It will slowly burn out and fill the room with the fragrance of incense. One book contains 36 strips.
Infinitely chicer than all those blasted candles. None of which seem to live up to (what are undoubtedly unrealistic) expectations.
