1994: Scent marketing's first steps
In 1994, David Martin was a ride engineer with the Walt Disney company. He had a passion for the rides’ magical impact on visitors and was constantly searching for ways to improve them. He experimented with the use of scent in order to make the experiences more life-like, which turned out to be a great success. He soon quit his job and started his own scent marketing company: Fragrance Technologies. Companies were quickly discovering the impact a scent can make, and by the year 2000 David had provided over 1000 companies with their own scent. One year later, the company’s name was changed into ScentAir and they started to look abroad for international expansion.
2001: International expansion
ScentAir had big plans and international expansion was one of them. By 2010, ScentAir had 10 international branches on 4 continents, 200 employees and 30,000 clients. Major international hotel chains such as the Hilton Hotel Group, Mandalay Bay and The Holiday Inn used their own corporate scent for all their locations, proving the concept worked. Fast forward a few years and ScentAir now has offices in 109 countries and is producing billions of scent impressions per year for over 70,000 global clients.
Soon after the start, David decided to develop his own scents. Aided by a team of perfumers and technicians, he quickly developed his own scent library. Every year, his team came up with new scents that fitted the season’s trends. Several scent innovations were created in their very own scent laboratory, such as:
– “War scents” developed for the American Ministry of Defence, used to train Navy Seals;
– Patented Odor Neutralizer technology used to eliminate bad smells in hospitals and smoking rooms.
2014: The start of ScentAir in the Netherlands
In 2014, Sander Schaap founded ScentYourBrand with his two trusted partners Oscar and Boris. ScentYourBrand became ScentAir’s exclusive scent marketing distributor in the Netherlands. During his long career in the entertainment industry, Sander had noticed the positive impact scent could have in company life. Yet, the use of scent was little known at that time, and he was the man to change that.
From day 1, ScentYourBrand’s most important mission has been: To make clients happy with the positive effect of scent marketing.
Again, the concept worked: the company grew quickly and not long after that, ScentYourBrand expanded into Belgium.
2017: Quick growth
In 2017, ScentAir and ScentYourBrand struck a deal and merged. Under the new name of ScentAir Benelux, we created an ambitious growth plan with the aim of delivering scent experiences to a large part of the Dutch and Belgian corporate market.
The team has quickly expanded to 12 people, who all share the same passion for scent experience.
