Since launching the Fragrance Test a matter of days ago, we have some interesting results to share.
The Fragrance Test was designed to be the industry’s first interactive tool for selecting an environmental scent, and now 1,000 people have taken the fragrance test so it is time to look at what the data is telling us…
Out of the five major categories of fragrance, Herbal / Woody is the most popular, with 793 out of 1,000 respondents marking it as “Like” or “Like Very Much” on our Fragrance Test.
The results for Floral surprised us. It came in lowest of the five categories. Flowers smell awesome—that is hard to argue; but I can see where our more discerning customers are looking for those unique and complex fragrance blends.
Here’s how each of the categories did:
Some final notes:
The most common Fragrance Test entry was that we “Like” or “Like Very Much” all five of the categories. 182 of the 1,000 respondents avoided clicking “Dislike Very Much” or “Dislike” on any of the categories. The most common result for this type of entry was Social House’s Bright Sunshine.
The second most common Fragrance Test entry was all of the above, with the exception of the Floral category. 147 of the 1,000 respondents only clicked “Dislike Very Much” or “Dislike” on the Floral category. The most common result for this type of entry was Monte Carlo’s Pomegranate & Sage.
In case you were wondering… 18 out of 1,000 respondents clicked “Dislike Very Much” or “Dislike” on every category. In other words, these 18 claimed to not like any category of scent. There’s still a common answer for that one, and it is Station Casinos’ Pacific Breeze. Station Casinos’ Pacific Breeze has no prominent ingredients, and just sort of smells like fresh air. Find me someone who does not like fresh air!
You might ask yourself how smells trigger memories; our sense of smell is one of the most powerful senses we possess, and the merest hint of something familiar can trigger a special memory or wonderful moment in our lives that we treasure forever. The reason for this is simple: the direct scientifically proven link in our brains between memory and smell. The Scent of a beach where you once traveled, a cabin in the woods you went to as a child, or the smell of the resort where you spent your honeymoon all can be evoked by the sense of smell.
Wouldn't it be nice to come home from a stressful day to these happy and relaxing memories? With fragrances from Aroma Retail, you can relive that beach trip (Sun & Sand), cabin in the woods (Cedar Seduction) or even your honeymoon (Bright Sunshine). If you want to relieve these memories, scenting is not something you can leave to chance or add on as an afterthought. It is only by putting it right at the forefront that we have been able to create products that will not just evoke wonderful memories but will create wonderful memories of their own.
If you have been to the Social House in Las Vegas you must have noticed the amazing Social House Scent, that is Bright Sunshine. Would you like that amazing smell in your home?
The sense of smell is the most powerful way to connect with your emotions and memories. A smell can evoke specific memories, affect people’s moods, and even influence their behavior. Smell has a strong influence on the emotions we feel in our daily lives, and the emotions we feel strongly affect the way we relate to places.
