Odour Control & Scenting Solutions For Canadian Businesses
Our neighbors to the north have the same problems with industrial malodours and their management as we do. They also share a reliance on professional solutions for help in this regard; and like so many other businesses, scent marketers and Jan San companies throughout the world, many have been turning to our odour-control and odour-management solutions for more than seventy years.
The Sense of Smell Institute, which is the research and education division of The Fragrance Foundation and the non-profit, educational arm of the global fragrance industry, poses the biggest question for industry odours.
If shoppers can recall smells with 65% accuracy after a year, how long will a bad odour in any business remain in the memories of customers? The answer is perhaps too prickly for business managers and owners to even calculate, but there is a lesson here.
Canadian businesses must develop a working relationship with a highly professional odour control and odour management company, such as the ambient air-care experts at Air-Scent, in order to maintain a clean and fresh smelling commercial environment for both clients and employees.
In the words of Arnold Zlotnik, President and CEO of Air-Scent International, “specific scents and aromas are proven to affect a human’s overall feelings and emotions and can alter or improve elements such as stress, depression, mood, memory, sleep, relaxation, sensuality and stimulation. In the case of commercial, industrial and retail environments, it has been well-proven to increase sales, customer linger time, brand loyalty and a whole host of other financial benefits.”
Scented environments are just as vital to Canadian businesses of all types as they are in the United States and other countries throughout the world. The strategic deployment on scents have resulted in fewer office errors and typos; improved perceptions of product quality; increased intent to purchase; more time spent in a retail store and even the willingness of consumers to pay more than expected for a specific product.
To do this correctly and efficiently, proper scenting also entails the need for vaporous odour-neutralizing products and professional commercial-grade diffuser machines that maintain air freshening properties in areas that require it; such as large public interiors, retail stores, hotel lobbies, hallways, restrooms, trash rooms and other areas.

Relevant Studies and Statistics
According to a new study conducted by Global Info Research (GIR), the worldwide market for air-fresheners is expected to grow at a compound annual growth interest rate (CAGR) of roughly 20% until 2023.
Air-Care is experiencing an expansion in use and is no longer viewed as just a means to remove foul odours. It has become an essential vehicle for enhancing both homes and commercial spaces, and consumers have demonstrated a keen willingness to experience pleasant smells in a wide array of formats, including scent machines, candles, diffusers and air-fresheners.
Another study jointly conducted by Washington State University and Switzerland’s University of St. Gallen indicated that in order for a scent to influence a consumer’s state of mind it must be simple.
More sales occurred when shoppers were exposed to a simple orange scent than when a complex orange-basil and green tea aroma was introduced to the setting. The study concluded that it is easier for our brains to focus on shopping when our brains are focused on an uncomplicated scent.
Canadian Businesses Requiring Odour Control Solutions
The use of fragrance has infiltrated many Canadian industries including: hotels, building owners, Home Owners’ Associations (HOAs), retail stores and boutiques; medical facilities, restaurants, auto dealership showrooms; retirement senior centers; retail stores; hotels; stadiums and schools and universities, just to name a few.
One burgeoning sector that is really feeling the smell of things is the Canadian marijuana industry. Over the course of the last few years, Canada has become the world leader in pot production. E-companies flourish across every corner of the globe, as legalization of the drug for medicinal use expands more and more with each passing day.
According to a recent Deloitte report, the Canadian cannabis market, which includes medical, illegal and legal recreational products, is expected to generate up to $7.17 billion in total sales in 2019. Of that amount, legal sales are expected to contribute more than half, up to $4.34 billion.
The production of pot produces a pungent, very unpleasant “skunk-like smell”. In one section of Toronto alone where there are six licensed marijuana production plants in a community of 17,500 people, complaints are continuous and both neighboring industries and residents have formed a watchdog group directed at keeping operations in check.
They also recognize the need for assessment and the elimination of this problem with effective odour neutralizers, for which many use our molecular odour-neutralizing additive, Metazene.
Scent Marketing And Odour Management in Canada
You can’t have proper sent marketing without effective odour control. Enhancing customer experience and brand awareness is the power behind the phenomenon known as scent marketing. Throughout Canada, retailers and other industry leaders are keenly aware of the need to differentiate themselves from others of their ilk and scent marketing is the perfect vehicle to achieve this goal.
In the words of Christine Chamberland-Beaudoin, founder and president of Montreal-based Elixir Marketing Olfactic:“People don’t always look at advertising on the street the way they used to. They may be looking at their phones, they’re walking very fast; they are very stressed. When you put a smell on something, it catches their attention.”
Smell is the most powerful of all our senses, as scent receptors in the nose are directly linked to the limbic system in our brains that controls memory and emotion. It is so potent that experts believe that up to 75% of all daily emotions are affected by noses. Experts claim that an infant distinguishes smells before being able to perceive colors, sounds and textures.
But introducing scent into a Canadian business environment is a delicate affair best left to the professionals at Air-Scent. In order for an aroma to successfully stimulate the buying impulse that lies within all of us an association with a product isn’t enough; the scent must be linked to the general surroundings.
A keen example of this pitfall can be seen with some recent bus stop ads that were scented with a chocolate chip cookie aroma as part of a “Got Milk” campaign. It was so unsuccessful that the ads were removed the same day they were introduced. Even more, KFC is currently hoping their limited edition gravy-scented candle will attract the nasal attention and taste buds of potential customers.
Ambient scenting is much more than just plugging in a unit and waiting for the crowds to rush in. It is a behavioral science applied to a real-world environment and as such involves many variables. Odour control, which usually accompanies scent-marketing initiatives, is an effective way for busy business owners and managers to maintain clean facilities without having to lift a finger.
We offer complete assurance that their air freshening products and devices, whether for large reception areas or small bathroom spaces, will effectively tackle malodours as well as provide a consistent pleasing scent.
