What if smells could improve the quality of care?
Olfactory marketing promotes a sense of wellbeing and serenity in spas, institutes and facilities offering therapeutic treatments. In places where people are taking care of others, and themselves, room fragrances selected for their calming and relaxing properties add an extra layer of wellbeing.
The diffusion of fragrances with active ingredients produces measurable results in reception areas and health and wellbeing establishments:
- Clients are visibly more relaxed and say they feel a sense of wellbeing
- Higher overall satisfaction
- Premium positioning of location and service
Create a soothing ambiance for a better client experience
Gentle fragrances are sometimes described as “sensory baths.” Diffusing scents with reassuring effects helps clients feel welcome and at home the moment they walk in the door.
Many spas, beauty institutes, and health and thalassotherapy centers create custom olfactory atmospheres that invite clients to step into a bubble of wellbeing and let themselves be guided gradually toward a state of relaxation. Oftentimes soft music is diffused with the scents to help clients naturally relax before treatments even begin. They add to clients’ emotional comfort and the full availability of masseurs, estheticians and care providers.
The influence of fragrances on the human psyche
Olfactory memory is what shapes our reactions to many smells and fragrances. Certain scents have the power to move us, and to reassure us. Others, such as the smell of disinfectants, can evoke unpleasant situations of the past, leaving patients feeling stressed. Clinics, care centers and hospitals have fully understood how scents influence our state of mind. That is why they diffuse subtle and agreeable fragrances, for instance with notes of citrus (bergamot, mandarin, grapefruit…) or aromatics (lavender, basil, eucalyptus…) in waiting rooms and treatment and relaxation areas. These scents create an environment that is calming, where minds can relax and people can get into the best possible frame of mind before starting their medical visit.
