Students will gain in-depth knowledge of tailored olfactory experiences, which are key to amenity management. A particular focus will be placed on analyzing contemporary society and how experiential marketing affects consumer behavior. Participants will combine economics and management know-how with an ongoing search for “beauty”, comfort, and well-being, aesthetic codes and trends, culminating in a strategic selection of fragrances in line with brand-driven color and style choices; the emotions created through these olfactory suggestions deeply impact the client experience, that will associate them with positive memories.

This educational path will guide students through olfactory atmospheres and experiences, analyzing the processes, tools and techniques used to create specific moods or get consumers to embrace a particular fragrance.

They will learn to use meta-styling techniques and the latest technologies designed to diffuse scents in small or big spaces and how to leverage this strategy to trigger specific reactions or responses. The Master course will also support students through Expert professionals and Managers to gain an advanced entrepreneurial mindset and the required skills how to think and set its own business in Niche Fragrances.
