The Scent Of A Man

Smell is an incredibly powerful sense that can have amazing results in your business.

Most clients I speak with are all using essential oils throughout their spa in multiple ways. From diffusing the air, infusing oils into various treatments to retail products - there's no reason to not incorporate aromatherapy!

I see a lot of lavender, vanilla, the menthol families and citrus families with most spas. With the steady rise of male clients each year, do you have "manlier" scents going on any where?

The possibilities are up to your imagination!

You can have a "guys only" room or section of the spa. Decked out with furniture and treatments geared towards guys. Here are some awesome pieces to think about:

Kasper Classic Barber Chair
Vilho Salon Styling Chair
Rigmora Styling Chair
DIR Pedicure Station Dragon
Davidson Barber Chair - Red (this is one of my all time favorite chairs!)
Les Series Reception Chair / Black by BIGA

In those areas, be sure to have more manly scents along with a few of the industry standards. Here are some awesome ones to try out:

Make sure your straight razors, hot lather machine and clippers/trimmers are all on point!

Last and certainly not least, don't forget retail. There are so many amazing retail products geared towards men! 

Here are some top sellers here:


Even if you don't offer men's services, have men's products for their mothers, wives, sisters, girlfriends, etc to get for them!!!

It Just Makes "Scents"!

Don't you just love how spa's smell? Well you’re supposed to. The purpose is to feel healthier the second you step foot into a spa. When you take your first breath of air, it should be a pleasurable moment. The spa environment is detrimental to the spa experience. A powerful way to make a first impression is through the aroma of the spa. Our sense of smell is more sensitive than any of other five senses, and has a strong influence on our emotions and moods.

Scent Therapy is an effective way to help clients escape into the mode of relaxation. Adding a Room Mist to you spa is something so simple, yet so valuable. Biotone, a well known manufacturer of spa and salon supplies, make some excellent aromatherapy and room sprays. They have specialized blends already formulated to promote the sense of well-being to the mind, body, and spirit. All Biotone Mists are formulated with 100% pure essential oils, and are naturally fragrant. Some favorites are listed below:
Popular Places to Spray:
  • Welcoming area
  • Massage room
  • Linens
  • Bathroom
  • Any room or Office
Our sense of smell is connected really well to our memories. Just one whiff of a familiar smell can trigger memories of our childhood, or places we’ve visited. How does your spa want to be remembered?
