Santa Maria Novella Carta D'Armenia Incense

Santa Maria Novella

$ 28.00

A treasure from antiquity, Santa Maria Novella’s Carta d’Armenia is a paper soaked in infusions of resins and oriental spices. Fold the delicate paper, light the edge, blow out and witness the vapor smoke filling your room with an old world European cathedral ambiance. These resin oils also purify the air and may also be used to perfume clothing by placing an un-lit paper in drawers, suitcases, or closets. Carta d’Armenia’s history began in the late 19th century when Frenchman August Ponsot was in Armenia during his travels through the Ottoman Empire (Armenia at the time was part of the empire). He was amazed to discover that the people there scented and sanitized their homes by burning a natural resin with a balmy-vanilla like fragrance.
