Frequently Asked Questions
We are here to create fragranced, relaxed, ambient spaces, to help enhance customer experience and to influence purchase decision, by using the power of scent.
Our fragrance oils are complex and specially formulated and can stand apart from the ordinary. Creating distinctive and appealing fragrances is not any easy task, our fragrances use the highest quality ingredients which are essential oil based with inert fragrance and can contain base and odour neutralising materials. All fragrances supplied are checked for safety and have safety data sheets available.
Being an eco and environmentally friendly company is very important to us. The fragrance oils are supplied in recyclable plastic bottles which are considered to be the most eco-friendly, made from post-consumer products and are re-useable and recyclable at the end of their useful life without harming the environment.
Our aim is to eliminate single use plastic from our supply chain by the end of 2024 and to gradually move towards renewable energy. As a global entity, we further realise the impact of logistics on the environment and, henceforth, aim to partner with providers who are responsible and transparent in their practices.
Why should I use EcoScent to scent my space?
Studies have shown that the sense of smell is the strongest of the five senses to trigger memory. Some say that seventy-five percent of the emotions we generate on a daily basis are affected by scent.
EcoScents ambient scenting is a powerful marketing tool that touches your customer’s emotions, can be a key factor in product perception and in triggering nostalgic memories which can ultimately lead to making purchasing decisions or return visits.
Ambient scenting creates a pleasant environment for your customers, colleagues and visitors; into a space they will want to work, linger in and return to.
How does EcoScent Ambient Scenting work?
EcoScent fragrance machines feature a patented diffusion system. Our scenting systems featuring advanced diffusion technology that converts liquid fragrance oil into a fine, dry mist which releases directly and efficiently into your chosen environment.
We have over 500 different fragrances to choose from and also offer a bespoke scent service where you can create you very own fragrance.
Will Ambient Scenting cause an allergic reaction?
According to OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) standards, the fragrance and scents being diffused through EcoScents air treatment system fall far below the OSHA regulated ‘Allergy Triggers’ due to the small particle size, with a scent effect of less than one particle per million (PPM).
The allergy threshold for most people is over 100 PPM. Our fragrances are made of high quality ingredients manufactured under the strict guidelines of the IFRA (International Fragrance Association).
How safe is EcoScent?
EcoScent Machines are an excellent way to diffuse fragrance in both business and home settings without the use of an open flame. While diffusers are generally safe to use you should follow certain guidelines to ensure the best experience for everyone in your business and household - children and pets included.
Be careful with pets and small children.
Since children and pets are smaller than adults, they may be more susceptible to scents. Animals may also have adverse reactions that are different from humans. The main health risks of essential and fragrance oil for pets come from direct contact (licking, absorbing into skin and fur, etc.) with the oil. If you're worried about your pet's exposure, monitor them for symptoms or seek guidance from your local vet. While low risk, some specific essential oils should not be diffused around cats and dogs, including Cinnamon, Citrus, Eucalyptus, Pennyroyal, Peppermint, Pine, Sweet Birch, Tea Tree, Wintergreen, and Ylang Ylang. Direct contact with essential oils on an animal's skin should be avoided. If your pet gets oil directly on its skin or fur, wash it off immediately with soap. If your pet has licked / consumed the fragrance oil or starts exhibiting reactions, you should bring it to a veterinarian as soon as possible. Essential oils should be kept out of the reach of your pets and shouldn't be left unattended. You should never directly apply fragrance oils to your pet. Cats are particularly vulnerable to fragrances. If you notice them getting sick, turn off the diffuser, open the windows, and take them to the vet if things get worse. While you’re at it, keep the diffuser out of reach so your human and fur children can’t knock it over or ingest the oil.
How do I dispose of the Signature Scent Consumables?
Being an eco and environmentally friendly company is very important to EcoScent. The fragrance oils are supplied in recycled plastic bottles which are considered to be the most eco-friendly, made from post-consumer products and are recyclable at the end of their useful life without harming the environment. If required you can also send them back to us and we can arrange for them to be re-used or recycled.

How much does professional scent marketing cost?
The costs of scent marketing are dependent on room size, technical implementation, number and specification of the scent delivery systems, room air quality and fragrance choice. Scent marketing is very cost efficient and we have fragrances and scent systems for everyone’s budget.
Does room scenting cause headache?
