Ambient Scenting Services For South Florida Hotels

Although ambient scent marketing in hotels has been around for almost two decades, it has only been in the last few years or so that many hoteliers have jumped upon the olfactory bandwagon.

Harnessing the sheer power of scent adds a certain visceral aspect to an already highly customized arena. Scent subtly reinforces brand recognition, ignites loyalty and improves that all important bottom line.

Hoteliers are acutely aware that their offerings must supersede brick and mortar amenities, that studies have proven that olfactory logos define a brand, and that having a signature scent is a vital factor in a guest’s overall travel experience.

Scent memories become deeply embedded in our minds because they are linked to the sectors of the brain that process both emotion and memory.

In the words of Caroline Fabrigas, a scent branding expert: “A good scent enhances the wood that you’re standing on, the stone on the wall. It’s almost as if the environment is breathing with you. It becomes intrinsic to the space. You don’t viscerally experience a logo the way you experience a scent…Custom scents are expensive, but if you think about the amount of money a brand will spend to create a logo, this is just another form of it…-and it’s one of the most powerful.”

Our sense of smell is the first to develop, and research indicates that it begins even before we are even born. It is our most primitive of all the senses, which is why it creates such an instinctual reaction.

When the world was young as well as today, smell has always been multi-functional; it has served as an aid to survival and an omen of impending danger, such as the smell of fire or gas leaks.

Perfumers respect and nurture smell’s fragrant path to sensual and emotional pleasure.

A Few Relevant Statistics And Studies 

Scenting for hotels renders a memorable, invisible layer of comfort to the surroundings that no flowers, art work or colorful flourishes can capture.

It becomes one with the traveler; a part of an immersive and memorable experience. Research indicates that people are 100% more likely to remember what they smell in a hotel versus what they see, hear or touch.

Studies have also proven that mood improves up to 40% when people are exposed to  a pleasant scent, which is vital to a successful hotel stay.

A 2021 Spanish study that was published in The European Journal of Tourism revealed that when scent was introduced to hotel guest rooms, participants felt happier than when exposed to an unscented room.

Why Is It Important To Scent A Hotel Lobby?

A hotel lobby, in its own fragrant way, is one of the most important areas of any hotel. A chosen scent in a lobby instantly and indelibly reminds visitors why they have come and what they can expect.

The reason for this concerns an olfactory phenomenon known as a first impression that travelers experience upon crossing the threshold.

There is only one irreversible moment in time when this occurs, and Essential Air Care providers know how to make the most out of this opportunity with their vast collection of superior scents and state of the art HVAC diffusers, namely our Aroma Stylers.

Fragrance Makes A Powerful Impact on Mood And Mind Set

Setting a particular mood for guests, whether it be one of opulence and luxury or just the simple feel of ‘being home, serves to make a deep aromatic connection that will link the hotel to a traveler’s emotions and memory. There is a certain unspoken protocol for fragrance selection.

For example, a soft blend of roses and tobacco can feel like being home, while the idea of being surrounded by wealth and luxury is better captured by facets of sensual essential oils such as smoky, fruity and musky oud and the rich bouquet of colorful, exotic spices.

According  to Steven Semoff, co-president of the Scent Marketing Institute: “For the most part, in today’s society everybody is inundated with visual stimuli and auditory stimuli. The sense of smell, though, is hardwired directly to your brain, right to the emotional center. When you smell something, bang. That’s going to trigger either a memory or an emotion.”

Southern Florida Ambient Scenting Considerations

The demands for ambient scenting in south Florida have to be met differently than those in other cooler climes.

The oppressive heat presents significant challenges to even our masters at Essential Air Care, who are innovative experts in the region’s specific needs.

Florida Odor Control Services

For one thing, malodors are much more potent and tenacious than even those in other parts of the Sunshine state.

One disturbing study that was published in the journal, PLOS ONE, indicated that high temperatures generate more energy for odor-causing molecules to transition into a gas phase, which in turn increases their rate of production.

This further translates into an ongoing need for powerful air-freshening and deodorizing services. Hotels in south Florida must consider using powerful deodorizers, and for Essential Air Care, there is only one that does the job better than any other in the planet; namely, Metazene.

South Florida Effective Odor Control

This neutralizing additive destroys malodors on the molecular level via a chemical reaction. Odors are not just masked; they are deader than dead forever!

The warm, sun kissed climate of southern Florida is a paradise on one level but on another it brings dangerous storms, destructive hurricanes and extreme, unrelenting heat, which can be hazardous both to human health and to industrial and commercial spaces of all kinds.

It can cause serious dehydration, stroke and weaken cardiovascular and nervous systems.
