Ambient Scent Diffusion For Yachts And Private Jets
Discover how our ambient scent diffusion and odor control products enhance the interiors of luxury yachts and private jets, amplifying, soothing and subtly triggering emotional arousal and increased situational satisfaction through the power of scent.
Yachts and private jets represent the epitome of luxury travel in this modern era. Both have their roots in the last century.
The age of cruise travel had its heyday in the 1930s and 40s, and ocean liners were floating palaces of elegance and class, offering every amenity imaginable.
Luxury ships, like the Queen Mary, sailed the open sea from 1936 to 1967, and was fitted with:5 dining rooms; live entertainment; two cocktail lounges; several swimming pools; a grand ballroom; squash court and a small hospital.
A Short History of Private Jets
The first commercial flight occurred in the 1920s between St Petersburg and Tampa. As commercial air travel developed in the 1930s, these flights featured radio telephones and oversized seats, and due to their prohibitive costs, were reserved for wealthy businessmen and executives.
By the late 1950s, private jets became a favored mode of travel note only for businessmen but also celebrities, moguls like Howard Hughes and socialites.
Today, a much broader range of clientele has access to the sheer luxury of a private jet and all its accoutrements, including an Air Scent International fragrance that will complement the ambiance of all onboard as well as soothe troubled minds and calm spirits.
How Is Luxury Travel Defined Today?
Today, luxury travel translates into some things from times past that are the same, but many others that are very different. They both are and have always been expensive, and travelers from all eras in time have always needed a little pampering, but not all luxuries are created equal.
A positive luxury travel experience involves red carpet treatment and an attentive staff ready at all times to provide whatever service may be needed.
Inferior luxury status usually entails poor customer service and the unexpected padding of the bill for every single item or service that may be provided.
The latter almost always loses return customers but the former becomes implanted in consumer memory and is likely to become a repeated travel experience.
According to Robert Mackaseck, CEO of Valera Global: “Luxury travel is defined by attention to the details, meticulous workmanship, sumptuous atmosphere and discerning good taste.”
Air Scent International, Scenting And Luxury Travel
Our ambient air care experts at Air Scent International are well aware that scenting is one of those things that helps define that idiomatic expression, “the devil is in the details,” which alludes to some mysterious element that defines mastery over a particular problem.
In the case of luxury travel in yachts or private jets, the secret to an effective opulent fragrance lies in its ability to capture memories and subtly intoxicate travelers with a sense of quiet joy and well-being.
According to one scent marketing expert, “Scent triggers memories and recall more than any of the other senses, which is why many five-star hotels are expanding fragrance initiatives as a way to scent brand their experiences.”
The same holds true for luxury yachts and private jets. For the most part, opulent fragrances for yachts employ a myriad of raw materials blended with gracefully balanced accords that exude a rich, elegant and luxurious character.
Scents for private jets must also, in their own way, reflect a specific lifestyle.
An Air Scent International rule of thumb guarantees that all our opulent formulations will dazzle the spirit and all the senses at once, as there is never a second chance to create a first impression.
Some Unexpected Thoughts About Luxury Travel
Luxury travel captures the mind and heart of the traveler both emotionally and physically before, during and after the experience. The following concepts suggest some of the factors that greatly influence this mode of travel.
Luxury Travel Is A Personal Journey
We all take ourselves with us wherever we go, and luxury travel provides an opportunity to immerse oneself solely in the journey and not the destination. It evokes a sense of discovery, elation and respite from the dust of everyday life. Being away from home and on the receiving end of meticulous attention and care opens the door to new perspectives and attitudes.
Luxury Travel Is No Longer An Elitist Privilege
While once reserved for the rich and famous, today stellar accommodations and services are much more affordable to mainstream travelers. While there are certainly degrees as to which amenities are offered, modern luxury travel has become much more democratic, with many cruise lines offering both luxury and tour packages.
Luxury Travel Means Seeing The World On One’s Own Terms
Going with a flow determined by the whims and fancies of the traveler can be very satisfying, as it sets the experience apart from others, and is like they words of that old Frank Sinatra song, I Did It My Way. In the world of luxury travel, via corporate jet or private yacht, there are no rules and anything goes.
Seeking An Understanding Of Other Cultures And Ways Of Life
A recent survey determined that 27% of US International travelers consider themselves “sophisticated explorers” seeking to discover new cultures and traditions. They value cultural heritage, luxury products that highlight individual customs and traditions, story telling and the performance arts.
Luxury Travelers Want Their Dreams To Become Reality
According to Carrie McDougall, president of Cultural Crossroads: “…Travelers look for something unique, above their expectations with superb service where their needs and wants are fulfilled. This includes exclusivity, privacy and everything from relaxation to adventure, with pampering and extras.”
The Quest For Exquisite Cuisine
For luxury travelers, cuisine transforms from a daily necessity into a heavenly culinary experience. Gourmands seek extraordinary culinary pleasures, which fine cuisine can offer in many forms. For example, a particular favored cuisine or drink can become a theme for a yacht trip or cruise, such a visiting vineyards, or just dining at the highest end restaurants found in any particular region. The options are endless, and they can all uniquely appeal to the customized whims and fancies of those onboard.
Luxury Travel Provides A Unique Sense Of Community
While the luxury traveler may well be somewhat of a snob, he or she or they still desire a sense of community. This is provided by optional tour events and night happy hours so that guests can mingle and become acquainted if they so desire.
Content Is A Highlight of Luxury Travel
Itineraries and programming are aspects of luxury travel that many high-end consumers may enjoy planning for themselves, but they still seek easy access to their experiences that can only be coordinated by others. Standalone luxury offerings allow travelers the freedom to sample whatever they may like.
The Epitome Of Customization
Luxury travel allows for many choices, which is a key ingredient to consumer happiness and the potential for repeat traffic. Whether a traveler seeks a massage in a private room, cooking classes or personal tours, if money can buy it and it isn’t illegal, a traveler can most probably get it.
