Hospitality, Odor Control And Ambient Scent
While the travel and tourism industries have taken a few hundred years to evolve, beginning roughly around the 1700s when inns became a way of life, the concept of traveling is is as old as mankind. Ancient travel via land or water was focused on the search for food sources and shelter, but over time, its purpose changed, and with it the seeds of tourism and hospitality were born.
The concept of hospitality lies at the heart of the tourism industry. In fact, the word derives from the French, hospice, which means taking care of the travelers. Innovations in transportation, communication and technology have melded to transform the modern hotel into a complex structure offering sensational fodder for the senses, especially pleasant fragrances and odor-control.
Smell is the second most influential sense in humans after vision, and we make superb use of its potential, particularly in businesses related to the hospitality industry. Hotels are becoming more and more focused on creating complete experiences for their guests, which translates into paying attention to every possible detail that might affect a visitor’s satisfaction.
Whether malodors emanate from hotel rooms, event spaces, kitchens, lobbies or other common areas, they present a glaring problem that can affect both indoor air quality and the collective guest experience. Any odor-control solution must be both safe for all guests and staff and effective at managing odor.
A hotel guest’s experience is usually two fold; that is, it is based on their feelings during their stay and what they remember about their visit afterwards. There is only one instant that captures a first impression, and scent grants hoteliers the power to manipulate the experiences of their guests from the moment they enter the lobby.
This is accomplished by utilizing specific fragrances that help to convey the desired mood and ambiance. Luxury, boutique and lifestyle-branded hotels are fast becoming more and more attracted to the idea of using customized scent branding to induce a one-of-a-kind reflection of themselves.
Here are the most used fragrances within luxury boutique hotels.

To compound the issue, many dissatisfied travelers share their negative feelings on websites like TripAdvisor, Expedia, Yelp and others , which can severely impact a hotel’s reputation.
