The Chancellor Hotel is trying some aromatherapy

Studies show the tremendous power of scent and aroma, and we want to take advantage of that power. Scent is the closest sense linked to memory, and after a hotel stay, all you have are the memories. It all starts in the brain with the limbic system. That is the part of the brain that governs emotion and emotion is a huge factor is making a hotel stay a great one.

We just started working with Scentair to create memories and soothe emotion by introducing soft and subtle scents that will enhance the public area experience.

I look forward to seeing how it goes. I suspect that it is not something that is missed if it is not there, but people will have a better experience with us, but they won't really know why.
