Scent Marketing in the Workplace

If you stop and try to think how your workplace smells like, can you identify a specific odor? Or can you at least remember how you feel when you think about it? I personally find it really easy to recreate in my mind the scents I smell every day, and with them also specific moods and attitudes I associate to those specific environments. For example, the smell of my house makes me feel relaxed and cosy, the smell of buses makes me feel anxious (because I’m usually in a rush), the smell of my office makes me feel productive and the smell of my university hall makes me feel concentrated.

Now, ‘because scent marketing is so effective at increasing sales in a retail setting, we might lose sight of the fact that Continue reading

Scent as Pest Control?

Hello everyone! My name is Rachel Compton. I am a design intern and will be a guest contributor to the Scent Sciences scent blog!

So, something I’ve had to unfortunately regularly tackle when I transferred to college and lived on my own for the first time was the problem with bugs. Those pesky invasive insects that I speak of include spiders, ants, cockroaches, silverfish, and the Continue reading

Scents: The Next Big Thing on e-Books?

Fast-forward, and I’m still one of those who prefers to read novels in the traditional way. Actually, I have been thinking of getting an e-book for awhile.

Hello Scent Sciences followers, it has been a long time since I have written.  Thanks to my great teammate, Carlotta, I was able to take some much needed time away from blogging to focus on the beginning of the school year.  During the day I am in the classroom with 24 fantastic 4th graders but this makes for long days.  This past Friday I almost feel asleep at the dinner table!  Needless to say, I needed some relaxation tips this weekend. I thought this would be a great time to share the results of our most recent poll.

…What if you could watch Avatar and smell the wild forest? Or maybe The Notebook, and being able to smell Ryan Gosling under the rain? (Sorry, I had to say that). Well, this  Continue reading
