Scenting for Schools - Your guests and employees are going to smell your school—it’s unavoidable. If you’re not managing how it smells, something else is.
Common malodors that are solved by scenting schools include the following:
Furniture and flooring odor
Lunchroom and food odor
These types of malodors cannot be resolved with cleaning solutions alone without smelling like an institution, which is where Aroma Retail helps the Education Industry.
Scenting for schools is done for many reasons.
A scented school is more welcoming and engaging.
Increased achievement, social skills, and productivity from students and employees because everyone has a better mood and is more comfortable, creative, collaborative, and focused in a great smelling school.
Increased attendance, by creating a better first impression and more rewarding experiences because your school smells great.
Without scenting, your school design and décor are incomplete and just doesn’t feel right.

People are 100% more likely to remember what they smell in schools vs what they see, hear or touch.

Our sense of smell is the first to develop of all our senses. Even before we are born, our sense of smell is fully developed and functioning. It is our most primitive of senses, which is why we have such a visceral reaction to the schools smell.
