In the words of Alpha Aromatics chief chemist and fragrance magician, Roger Howell, “We enrich the environment around us with some of the most respected, innovative and prestigious scented product brands in the market place. We also strive to inspire artistic and scientific creativity while priding ourselves on adhering to the highest levels of perfumery ethics and regulatory standards in the world.”

We Are Masters At Scent Marketing and Scent Branding

Scent branding is deeply anchored in the world of industrial science and the many advances in both the study of the physical world and technology. Our chemists at Alpha understand the subtleties behind developing a scent identity. Their highly skilled chemists and researchers regard fragrance creation as an art form that is complex, customized and highly detailed.

Every scent is a unique amalgam that will not work unless it reflects all aspects of the business (or brand) in question. This translates into a fragrance that mirrors a company’s history, customer goals and the desired emotional response of the targeted audience to the chosen scent.

The Alluring Science of Scent Marketing

Scent marketing draws customers to a brand in the same way that a bee is attracted to a colorful bloom. The proper scent quietly and subtly transforms consumer perceptions. It is a very unassuming phenomenon that subliminally grants the consumer “an invisible key to the driver’s seat” and further promotes the essence of a company brand.

Alpha Aromatics Sensory Marketing

Scents subtly generate emotion and positively impact consumer behavior that seeps into memory and create a bond to a particular brand. This usually correlates with more time spent in a store or establishment resulting in more sales.

Scientifically speaking, smell is the sense that is most linked to memory formation and recollection because it is processed by the limbic system of the brain, which controls memory and emotion. Marketing studies reveal that 75% of all our emotions are triggered by smell.

The Industries We Service and How We Help Increase Business

Our clients come from many different industries, including decision makers, perfumery brand owner and manager, purchasing managers and directors, business development managers, sales managers, brand coordinators, product developers, cosmetic scientists, skin-care development chemists, packaging technologists, inventory and logistics controllers, senior chemists, soap manufacturers, product development scientists and more.

They all seek our services to painstakingly create, layer by layer, an entrancing, and one-of-a-kind fragrance that speaks its own exclusive language to all those who enter their commercial enterprise.
