WHAT IS AMBIENT AIR SCENTING?
Also known as olfactory marketing, or fragrance marketing, it is a stimulation technique that is able to create a lasting impression and transmit values by taking advantage of our sense of smell.
Ambient air scenting is about creating an emotional appeal to your location, something that’s distinctive and will be remembered in a positive way.
From that definition, it is easy to see how it can benefit retail and commercial premises, but it can do much more than that.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
It consists of diffusing a pleasant fragrance throughout a commercial space that will appeal to a specifically designated market segment. It aims at making the space smell pleasant, but also affects consumer experience; increase sales by increasing traffic; encourage guest loyalty; store “dwell-time” and ultimately, develop brand awareness.
A given aroma has the power to suggest positive memories, which in turn motivates purchasing decisions.
Rachel Herz from Brown University and Haruko Sugiyama and colleagues from the Kao Corporation in Japan collaborated on a study in 2015 entitled: Proustian Products Are Preferred: The Relationship Between Odor-Evoked Memory and Product Evaluation. What was identified in this study is the influence a scent can have on the appeal of a specific product based on the memories it evokes.
WHY IS IT SO EFFICIENT?
In short, the sense of smell is directly connected to the zone of the brain responsible for the formation, storage and retrieval of memories, as well as for the regulation of emotions. This zone is called the limbic system.
The effect of any scent is instantaneous; it goes directly to the part of the brain which controls emotions to trigger vivid memories.
At least 35% of what we recall about an environment in the short term is scent-based.
