Scent Marketing for
Hotels & Accommodation

Scent Marketing, or defining your brand through aromatic elements, helps many hotel brands to relate to guests in a much deeper and notable way that is far greater than traditional visual marketing techniques. Scent branding is heavily linked to influencing guests emotions, moods and reinforcing positive brand associations.

Our sense of smell is linked to our memories that in turn create long lasting impressions that can stay with us for many years. We recall what we smell 6-7 times more then what we see or hear.

Drive Memory Retention

The Sofitel conducted a survey of 3,000 guests and found 78% of women and 74% of men generally like scented spaces.

Improve Guest Satisfaction

Scent memories are ingrained in our minds and provide a powerful tool to build emotional loyalty with your hotel guests. It has been proven that after 3 months a person can recall a smell with 65% accuracy in contrast to only 50% of what they may see visually. This emotional memory can be used to bring positive feelings of happiness, relaxation and comfort that leaves a continued lasting impression.

Being the strongest of our five senses, our sense of smell is responsible for 75% of our emotions. Our olfactory nerve is directly linked to the Limbic System which monitors our memories and emotions therefore effecting our mood, concentration, memory recall and emotional behaviours.

Using scent to inspire consumer connection
& brand recognition...

We can help you to create a signature essential oil fragrance that your guests will identify with your hotel experience. In addition to creating  a scent logo for your brand many of our clients choose to gift or sell the fragrance to hotel guests in the form of a candle. This allows your guest to take a bit of their holiday and hotel experience home to remember.

Through your signature fragrance unique to your hotel we can drive positive brand associations to increase repeat clientele, drive positive reviews and create a luxurious experience that your guests will remember.
