New Markets in the Sense of Smell
The latest entry is a sleek aromapod inhaler, which allows consumers the benefit of aromas on-the-go. Instead of dispersing the aromas into the environment, the aromapod allows the user to inhale the fragrances themselves without disturbing anyone else’s space. The aromapod is infused with essential oils or fragrances thus eliminating the need to handle the messy liquids. These aromapods are small enough to carry in your pocket or purse and can be used wherever and whenever the user wants.
The utilization of aromas and scents – both synthetic and natural – is a major new trend. Where are the potential markets in this trend? Imagine:
All of these aromatic applications are readily available – or being developed – in one way or another. Extensive research into the science of smell is also being conducted in major universities in the UK and the USA. One company, The Sense of Smell Lab has been developing innovative products using some of this research into our sense of smell.
Aromas and scents are not a new product but rather an age-old tradition. The use of them in temples and churches for religious ceremonies, at feasts and celebrations, and for the promotion of love, health and wellness goes back as far as recorded history.
There are two components to a scent product:
The Scent Profile. All scents are chemical formulas, whether it’s a deodorizer, a fragrant flower or rotten eggs. These chemicals are either synthetically produced or natural, such as essential oils. Essential oils are highly volatile liquids derived from plants, roots, flowers, herbs, trees, bark and fruits. Since they are natural and contain the odor constituents of the plant, essential oils can accomplish results not achieved by the use of synthetic chemicals.
The Delivery System. Usually scents such as those from diffusers, sprays, plug-ins, candles, or natural smells are released into the environment, inhaled and then we become aware of them. This broadcasts the scents indiscriminately and involves anyone who enters the environment. Personal inhalers, such as the aromapod, is a new technology that delivers the aromas directly to the nose of the user.
So while the pharmaceutical companies churn out billions of pills to alter the body’s chemistry using the bloodstream, our sense of smell provides a natural, non invasive approach to better health and wellness.
Imagine using your sense of smell to help manage your emotions, alleviate stress, boost your energy, curb cravings, enhance your moods and treat a wide variety of psychological and physiological problems.
