Leave a Positive Impression on Customers, and Improve Employee Experience with Scent Infusion Technology

What is ambient scent marketing? On the surface, it’s a simple concept and one that has been around since the moment people realized that certain things smelled pleasant and others did not. There are examples throughout history, from ancient Egypt and Rome through today, of people, organizations, and companies recognizing the power of scent as a means to entice or encourage a specific behavior.

In today’s terms, figuring out what ambient scent marketing is requires considering even more potential uses. Scent marketing, also known as scent memory or aroma marketing, involves using a fragrance for commercial or marketing purposes. By using scent, businesses inspire unique brain activity, building deeper emotional connections with customers. The new association encourages customers to spend more time in the retail environment, hotel, office, or commercial space, generating greater brand loyalty.

Ambient scent marketing works. One Samsung study found that consumers increased time spent shopping in one of their retail stores by 26% and visited three times as many product categories when they were subjected to a company fragrance. A noted study performed by athletic wear giant Nike concluded that customers were 84% more likely to buy an identical pair of shoes when they examined them in a room with a pleasant scent versus one without a scent.

Overall, a research paper published by the Journal of Marketing found that using ambient scent marketing was an idea worth pursuing. The study estimated an increase in expenditures of between 3% and 23% for those that employed ambient scents over those that did not. The addition of a pleasant smell can’t turn a poor in-store experience into a great one, the report said, but it could be a differentiator in a store’s ability to compete and thrive in a competitive space.

Ambient scent marketing clearly makes an impact on the customer, and in the daily experience for employees. Indoor air quality, via treatment with holistic ambient scents that avoid unnecessary pollutants, is improved and leaves a positive impression on those who spend time in the store, office, or other facility. Lastly, ambient scent marketing can eliminate the bad odors that come with the day-to-day operations of the business — regardless of the source.

An incredible range of fragrances are available, including the ability to design your own custom scent to convey the exact feeling you want in your space. Inside every Hyscent fragrance cartridge is a proprietary ‘dry puck,’ made from a homogeneous mixture of fragrance oils and medical grade blended polymers.

This unique malodor counteractant is present in all of their commercial scenting systems.
