When we speak of interior design, we normally consider the colors, texture, lighting and lay-out. This has later evolved to include sound or music, which helps in setting a desired mood. Now there is a growing trend that integrates smell as a dimension of interior design through Scentscaping.
ScentScaping is the design of an interior environment by using a palette of scents to resonate with other sensory cues including light, color, music and texture; in order to convey a theme or enhance a mood with the intention of creating a richer personal and inter-personal experience.
Why the sudden interest in the sense of smell? According to a New York based olfactive branding firm, a human is able to recognize approximately 10,000 different odors and more impressively, recall smells with 65% accuracy after a year, in contrast to only 50% of visuals after three months. Also, a smell can bring on a flood of memories, influence people’s moods and even affect their work performance.
Additional benefits of scent include:
- Stress Reduction and other Health Benefits– Natural essential oils have therapeutic properties when inhaled
- Mood enhancement– Seventy-five percent of the emotions we generate on a daily basis are affected by smell.
- Personal Branding or Marketing– Scent can make a strong and memorable impression on your guests and customers to make them stay longer, and even boost sales.
The benefits of ScentScaping can now be enjoyed through Oscar Mejia Artisan Fragrances’ Tahanan Collection. These artisan room sprays are made of natural essential oils, designed to enhance mood and create healthy homes.
