Scented Stamps and Paper : Perfume News


The encapsulated fragrances can be used not only for scented strips inside magazines, but also for stamps, as Stamp Center Blog shares in one of its recent entries. You can get a whiff of Chanel No 5, an aroma of blooming flowers from Greece, or a fragrance of New Caledonia’s sandalwood. Stamp Center website offers the examples of scented stamps for sale. Of course, this made me immediately think of numerous other possibilities, from the state centered fragrances, such as that of Oregon blackberries, New York bagels and Florida oranges, to the seasonal aromas.

In other news reported in auFeminin, the perfumer Francis Kurkdjian has created a scent for the burning incense paper, Papier d’Arménie, in celebration of a year dedicated to Armenia in France. The traditional paper is heavily scented with the vanillic powderiness of benzoin, while the new fragrance created by Kurkdjian augments its warmth with incense, vanilla, woody notes and myrrh. Please see Papier d’Arménie website for more information and history of Armenian paper. Also, Guerlain has recently released a fragrance Bois d’Arménie created by Firmenich perfumer Annick Ménardo.

  • chayaruchama: The new Papier d’Armenie sounds lovely.

    Is it just me, or are we now in a a vanillic-incense mode these days?
    Sometimes I have to smile-
    It reminds me of children who eat tuna sandwiches for weeks, and then can no longer look at them again [for years !] October 17, 2006 at 6:52am Reply

  • Cynthia K: V, is this the same thing as Santa Maria Novella? I have some of that burning paper. October 17, 2006 at 5:36pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: I think that the niche houses are exploring the very themes that do not appear as often in the mainstream releases–orientals, woods, incense, etc. I like this trend. Your analogy is also great! I certainly feel this way with some fragrances. After overdosing myself on A La Nuit, I do not reach for it as often these days. October 17, 2006 at 3:01pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Cynthia, papier d’armenie is a type of incense. Santa Maria Novella has one as well. It is not the same thing as what Kurkdjian created. October 18, 2006 at 12:49am Reply
