The Scent Machine – Professional is the best solution for full coverage in any space with optional ventilation connections included with every machine. When deciding between the Scent Machine – Home Unit 101 and this one, keep in mind that this Scent Machine can be set to be even lower than the Home Unit 101 but will have a much larger capacity in case you need intense coverage.
The rate of fragrance oil usage will vary depending on your settings. 27 ounces of fragrance oil could last up to a year in a small space at very low settings, or you could need to use a bottle per month in those larger spaces with heavy intensity. You can also program it like you would a thermostat, where it runs at different intensities and at different times of the day to further conserve oil.
For any space, including very large spaces, as a free-standing diffuser or connected to your ventilation system, get whole-home coverage in up to 15,000 square feet with settings going from very low and delicate for smaller spaces to high volume intensity for larger spaces. Use the same fragrance oils and diffusion technology that the pros use in hotels, hospitals, stores, offices!

What does your home smell like right now? What is the first impression people get when they walk in the door…
Is it something wonderful just come out of the oven, that makes them hungry? Is it a fresh and clean scent that makes them feel happy and safe? I hope it’s not something that spoiled in the kitchen garbage, an old gym bag or another “gift” from your beloved pets. No one wants their home to stink, that’s for sure that is why Malodor control is so important. At the same time, we also don’t want to constantly be spraying, changing plugins, or using harmful aerosols to maintain how our home smells. Our sense of smell is run by the same part of the brain, in the limbic system, that controls our emotions. This is why smells are so good at making us happy or sad.
Let’s be happy! Have a home that smells great, all the time.
World-class resorts use signature fragrances in their lobbies and other public areas to give a great first impression and elevate the moods of their guests and for malodor control. It is easy to make your whole home smell great and do it like the pros do, with fragrances that have proven themselves at resorts that are known for their signature scent. To scent like a pro, we just need to answer a few questions to understand what we’re looking to achieve. First, why do world-class resorts use scenting rather than relying on keeping a completely clean environment that has no smell at all? Here are some reasons that we have heard from resort property managers and marketing professionals:
First impressions are everything, and how we smell is a huge part of how our brand is perceived.
Resorts want to project a very clean environment, even though they host a lot of guests. Clean rugs, furniture, whatever… every guest brings in their own scent and they don’t want to leave the overall smell of the environment to chance. At the same time, they also don’t want the resort to smelling like cleaning products. People remember a resort for how they smell; Most get compliments at the front desk all the time with guests asking how they can get something for their home. Everyone seems to be in a better mood when it smells great. Which fragrances should we use, and how do resorts select theirs? Why don’t they just use the standard fragrances offered by big companies like Glade and Febreze?
Special places deserve a special scent. Here is what resorts consider when they select a fragrance as their signature scent:
What is the easiest way to make my whole home smell great, and how do the resorts do it?
Resorts primarily use aroma diffusion machines to atomize their fragrance into the air for air scenting and malodor control. Sometimes the larger commercial machines will be attached to the ventilation systems, but only when the ventilation system is large enough to properly carry the fragrance and the system’s fan is always running. Most lobbies will have wall-mounted scenting machines at the entrances and gathering areas. An average-sized home will smell great with one good aroma diffusion machine in the main open area of the home. Research has shown how important scenting is, and it goes beyond just smelling nice. Here are some fun facts and stats:
Through the centuries, societies and cultures have tried to eliminate bad odors from their environment. From the burning of odorant woods and herbs through incense, fragrant oils and pomades to our modern aerosol technology like the Home Unit 101
It seems that most malodors relate to certain smells that, at some time in human evolution, had signaled imminent danger: such are the odors of smoke, carnivorous animals, decaying flesh, spoiled food and even the smell of our own species. In modern times, these objectionable odors come from many and diverse sources. Just to mention a few, let’s cite industries of all sorts, rendering plants, garbage dumps and, even closer to home, household and body odors which make the need for malodor control necessary.
About Aroma Retail
Aroma Retail’s scenting solutions and unique fragrance library allow anyone to enhance their own luxurious environment and create memorable experiences just like the professionals do, through a simple no-nonsense online retail model. Scent Like a Pro
If you can’t smell your perfume or home scenting products anymore, There is a real scientific explanation for it. It’s called olfactory fatigue. As our brains remain exposed to a scent for a certain period, they eventually tend to ignore the old smell in order to avoid sensory overload.
We all have experienced the phenomenon. It is that instance when you can't smell your favorite perfume anymore and think “I should be changing it…” or “they must have changed its composition…”. Nothing is wrong with your perfume or its composition; it is the same wonderful fragrance you’ve always loved. Is just that your nose “went blind” and can't smell it anymore.
The same thing happens with house scents. You love that fresh Asian Lily scent as experienced at Wynn during your trip to Las Vegas. But after a couple of weeks, you can’t smell it anymore… Your diffuser is still working; there is still fragrance in the canister… So, what happened? Sensory adaptation happened as a result of olfactory fatigue.
But don’t fret! I have the answer to maintaining that wonderful smelling house, and to keep smelling your favorite perfume or cologne. Alternate fragrances 🙂 One of the best ways to retain a pleasant scent in your home, that you can continuously smell is to change your fragrances every month. Or at least every season. Use the Fragrance of the month recommendations on our homepage. I suggest selecting a few yummy fragrances that you can arrange in a rotation, that way every few weeks you have a new scent for your “nose”. See this blog for more suggestions.
I also like to alternate between types of scents. For example, if this month you used floral scents, like Park Hyatt's Kai Jasmine, change it to something citrusy (Nobu's Lemon Ginger) or woody (Cromwell's Allure Noire) next month. Check out this cool YouTube video on why our noses act this way, then have a great smelling day 🙂
The top 40 most popular fragrances used at world-class resorts are listed on our Fragrance Page, along with filters that allow you to select your custom scent based on your preferences, finding the best scent for your home.
You can sort these fragrances based on the following criteria:
So, if you select Top 10 Most Popular, Citrusy and Woody for the Most Prominent Ingredients, Clean & Safe for the Most Desired Mood, Fall Season, and Used in Spas, You would get Bellagio’s Blue Ice as a result for the best scent for your home.
Bellagio’s Blue Ice is a Mediterranean blend of Cucumber, sweet Melon, Rose and Lily of the Valley ending with Blonde Woods with top notes of Grapefruit, Green Apple, Cucumber, Melon, Ozone; mid notes of Damascena Rose, Lily of the Valley; and base notes of Blond Woods, Musk.
Perfect for a smooth Fall fragrance to create a clean and safe mood.
THE POWER OF SCENT
By Andy Myers for research-live.com
THE SENSE OF SMELL
No other sense is so firmly linked to memory and emotion than our sense of smell. With its strong physiological link between the olfactory and limbic system and around 1,000 genes that encode distinct scents – compared to vision that only has four – our sense of smell is highly discriminating and adept at distinguishing and recognizing smells, even though we may struggle to articulate them…
…And maybe that is part of the problem: bricks and mortar retail stores are still dominated by vision, sound, and touch. What about smell?
It is clear from both academic literature and our research that smell has an impact on us, but that impact is unconscious: when people are asked what they think, they struggle to give any deep level of introspection into the experience, beyond whether they like it or not.
Does this mean scent alone will enhance an experience? Should retailers spray a couple of bottles of perfume around each day and that will do the trick? Or is it more complicated, more nuanced? As you may expect it is the latter, so put the perfume down for a moment and read on…

As a child do you remember opening a brand new book and smelling it? The smell of the paper and printed ink, that new book aroma stimulating your senses. You could feel the book beckoning you to open and explore its secrets.
So school is back, and all the parents and children have been busy getting all of the school supplies. Do you remember that special fragrance that hit you when you opened a new book? I do! Every time I experienced that scent of paper, ink, and glue I am immediately transported to that tiny bookstore back in Romania, where I used to go to as a child to get my school supplies.
Different people seem to like different fragrances when it comes to the smell of a book. There are those people who like the scent of old books and there are others who like the aroma of a new book being opened for the first time. The aroma that emanates from books is caused by a number of chemical reactions – not just the sweet smell of great prose, but the opportunity to enjoy the glorious sensuality of books!
Old books have a sweet smelling scent with notes of vanilla flowers and almonds, which is caused by the breakdown of chemical compounds in the paper, while the fragrance of a new book smells like they do because of the various chemicals used when they are manufactured.
The scent of new books can be attributed to three factors: the paper itself (it smells good because of the chemicals used to manufacture it), the ink used to print the book, and the adhesives used in the process of book-binding. if you love that scent try our Book Store Fragrance

Are you serious about your fragrance? Do you obsess over how your home smells? Me, too.
I use an aroma diffuser because it covers my whole home with my favorite fragrance. For years, I used everything from plugins and candles to room sprays, however, they never lasted, I wanted my house to smell great all the time like resort lobbies would when I would walk into a resort that uses professional Aroma Diffusers.
Our Home Unit 101 Aroma Diffusion Machine uses the same technology that the big commercial scenting machines do; it diffuses atomized fragrance oil directly into the air just like the commercial Aroma Diffusers.
The most fun part of all this, of course, is selecting your ideal fragrance. Why not do it like the resorts do? Here’s how world-class resorts develop their signature fragrances for making their casinos, lobbies, and other public areas smell great. There are three main steps involved...
First, take a look at your design and décor.
What types of fragrances come to mind when you consider the different design elements of your home? For example, is your home open and airy, or warm and cozy? Are your walls shades of white or do you use sharp colors? Is your flooring light tile, dark wood, or lush carpet? How about when you consider your décor? Do you have rich leather overstuffed sofas or minimalist seating with decorative throw pillows? Are your walls lined with pictures, or mostly bare? What types of images appear in the artwork and pictures in your home? What types of plants do you keep in your home or in the garden that are visible from the windows? This exercise is very helpful in allowing fragrance types to come to mind.
Second, consider the mood that you want to promote with your scent.
Fragrances enhance mood because our sense of smell is our most primitive sense and our olfactory nerve is directly connected to the limbic part of our brain, which drives emotion, affinity, and long-term memory.
We all want to be happy, right? The good news here is that any pleasant-smelling scent will promote happiness. But, what if we wanted to emphasize a certain feeling? Think about what that feeling is that you want to promote the most, and let the fragrance elements come to mind. If you need some help visualizing, here are some well-known associations between the main types of fragrance ingredients and mood:
Citrus scents like lemon, orange, bergamot, and grapefruit = health and vitality;
Floral scents like jasmine, rose, white peony, and gardenia = love, and togetherness;
Herbal scents like mint, rosemary, and thyme = raised cognition and optimism;
Clean scents like blossoms, linen, and powder = clean and safe;
Woody scents like cedar, sandalwood, and clove = natural and adventurous;
Modern scents like musk, leather, and fir = wealth and power;
Vanilla Amber scents like brown sugar, crème, and spice rum = comfortable and cozy;
Fruity & Tropical scents like nectarine, plum, and hibiscus = carefree and vivacious;
Resin scents like myrrh, frankincense, and pine = traditional and homey;
Edible & Seasonal scents like cinnamon, cocoa, pine needles = festive and indulging.
There are a lot of crossovers here, so just because you avoid one type of ingredient in your fragrance does not mean that you will not reap those benefits. Professional-grade fragrances like the ones used at the resorts listed on Aroma Retail’s fragrance page are complex and carry many of these types of ingredients in each fragrance. The idea here is to select one based on which ingredients are prominent.
The third step in selecting your ideal scent is to consider your preferences.
Resorts will consider their target demographics when doing this exercise. Perhaps you could consider your favorite people that you would expect to be guests in your home as well—which types of scent do you think they would prefer?
Do yourself a favor here… never say never to a fragrance ingredient, even if it ranks low on your preference scale. Finding your ideal scent is all about combinations. For example, I cannot tell you how many times I have heard people say that they “cannot stand” vanilla, then fall in love with Aria’s Asian Garden with its floriental blend of Jasmine, Lily of the Valley and Tuberose with Vanilla, Amber and Soft Woods. On the other side of the spectrum, people will say “it has to be floral”, then fall in love with Mandarin Oriental’s Green Bamboo with its luxurious, fresh and clean blend of Bamboo Woods, Crisp Bergamot, Melon Rind, and Green Floral notes.
After considering your design/décor, mood enhancement goals, and preferences, you can peruse the fragrance descriptions for each fragrance on our fragrance page, or even use the search button in the header of www.aromaretail.com to enter ingredients or keywords that you would like to see in the description of your ideal scent. If you’re still stuck, by all means, reach out to us in the contact section. We love to be part of our customer’s scent selection journey. Just tell us what you are looking for, or give us a summary of your design/décor, mood enhancement goal, and preferences, and we would be delighted to make some recommendations.
Let’s talk about that Aroma Diffuser a bit more.
An Aroma Diffuser that connects to the ventilation system is sometimes used in commercial applications because the air conditioners are always running in resorts and most other retail stores. HVAC-connected scenting machines (scent machines connected to the air conditioning or ventilation system) in homes and many stores or offices do not work that well because the air conditioning is connected to a thermostat that turns the fan on and off as needed. When you do not have airflow in your ventilation system, you are not getting the fragrance. Instead, the fragrance is building up in the ductwork. When the air finally comes on, you get a big punch in the nose from all that built up fragrance. In a worse case, where the air conditioning fan stays off for a long time or for many periods of time, the fragrance could build up so much that it turns the dust in the duct to slime. It’s a great-smelling slime, but it’s still slime that could leak and cause dust to build up much quicker.
This is why homes, and many businesses, for that matter, use freestanding or wall-mounted Aroma Diffuser like the Home Unit 101 Aroma Diffusion Machine. When the Aroma Diffuser is there in the room with you, it is much easier to change the settings and the fragrance oil.
I am asked about HVAC-connected Aroma Diffusers quite often, and I have two pieces of advice:
This is like wanting a big commercial mixer in your kitchen rather than a countertop mixer that would do the same job on a smaller scale. If you are concerned about hitting all the rooms of your home, you could always pop in another machine for the larger rooms like your basement game room, or just put a reed diffuser in the bedrooms and bathrooms. This is actually why Aroma Retail provides reed diffusers, room sprays and candles using the same fragrances that are used in the most popular resort Aroma Diffusers. Another important point to keep in mind is that hotels do not have fragrance going into the rooms where guests sleep, as most people prefer not to sleep in a scented environment.
Second, be sure you are ready to commit to the installation and maintenance involved in having an HVAC-connected Aroma Diffuser. Whatever you do, never NEVER connect a scent machine to your ventilation system if you do not have a reliable air sensor switch to cut power to the scent machine’s air pump motor whenever your fan is not running. Also, make sure you do not install your Aroma Diffuser right before your heating/cooling elements as it might cause problems with your air conditioning system.
My home is open/airy, somewhere between traditional and contemporary, I like green plants and fresh-cut flowers, I want to prioritize feeling clean healthy and comfortable in my home, I prefer citrus and floral blends with a twist of comfy musk, so I use Social House’ Bright Sunshine with its very complex blend of everything from grapefruit to jasmine to sandalwood.
I also want my scent products to be no-nonsense-easy to set up and operate, so I use the Home Unit 101 Aroma Diffusion Machine in the main area of my home, and I have a beautiful reed diffuser in each one of my bathrooms. The Home Unit 101 scenting machine is mounted between my kitchen, family room, and entry. I did switch it up a bit with the reed diffusers and went with Wynn’s Asian Lily for the bathrooms. Who knows, I might even change the fragrance in my scent machine to something more seasonal like Monte Carlo’s Pomegranate & Sage for the holidays.
So, there you have it! You’re ready to scent like a pro!
Play it safe, save time and money, and don’t sacrifice quality or settle on a humdrum scent. Start with a reliable and simple scent machine like the Home Unit 101, pick a fragrance to start with, and get some sample blotters of other fragrances that interest you in case you want to change things up later.
Most importantly, enjoy your great-smelling home 🙂
Rachel S. Herz, an assistant professor of psychology at Brown University, provides the following explanation:
The simple answer is yes, but the reasons may not be what you expect. Odors do affect peoples mood, work performance and behavior in a variety of ways but it isn't because odors work on us like a drug, instead we work on them through our experiences with them. That is, in order for an odor to elicit any sort of response in you, you have to first learn to associate it with some event. This explanation for how odors affect us is based on what is known as associative learning, the process by which one event or item comes to be linked to another because of an individual's past experiences. The linked event is then able to elicit a conditioned response to the original situation. In olfaction, the process can be understood as follows: a novel odor is experienced in the context of an unconditioned stimulus, such as a surgical procedure in a hospital, which elicits an unconditioned emotional response, such as anxiety. The odor then becomes a conditioned stimulus for that hospital experience and acquires the ability to elicit the conditioned response of anxiety when encountered in the future. This mechanism explains both how odors come to be liked or disliked, as well as how they can elicit emotions and moods.
We know that the neurological substrates of olfaction are especially geared for associative learning and emotional processing. The olfactory bulbs are part of the limbic system and directly connect with limbic structures that process emotion (the amygdala) and associative learning (the hippocampus). No other sensory system has this type of intimate link with the neural areas of emotion and associative learning, therefore there is a strong neurological basis for why odors trigger emotional connections.
Allow me to fill you in on all the ways my aroma diffuser has changed my life. This isn't an exaggeration, it's simply fact. You've definitely seen them on your Instagram feed—those teardrop-shaped devices spouting ribbons of mist. I've become borderline dependent on mine, with its gentle hum and warm, glow-y light and that first whiff of blended essential oils as they waft through my room. I sleep better, the air is less dry, and the sound of the subtle drip works far better than any white noise machine ever has. Aroma diffusers are safer than a candle, and longer lasting, too. Not to mention, they actually look good, and mine consistently makes my room smell like the fields of lavender in Provence.
All this to say, an aroma diffuser is great to keep anywhere: in your bedroom, office, living room, de facto yoga studio, etc. It will aid in cleansing the air and shifting your mood, says certified aromatherapist Naomi Edwards. "Other benefits include calming anxiety; promoting deep, restful sleep; and even supporting respiratory health to open up the airways when congestion has taken over," she says. It all depends on the scent, and the real fun comes from making your own blend of essential oils. I feel like an amateur chemist mixing six drops of lavender with eight of eucalyptus, and maybe a dash of frankincense if I'm feeling spicy. According to Edwards, "lavender is a natural sedative and relieves symptoms of stress, anxiety and insomnia, while eucalyptus is great for cleansing the air of pathogens, and it supports respiratory health." If you're looking for something more uplifting and awakening, citrus oils such as lemon or grapefruit will do the trick. But, says Edwards, "it's important to do your research on the oil brands that you're using. Look into their ethics and the process of what goes into their bottles from start to finish," to make sure that they're not adding synthetics.
