There’s nothing like going back to your roots and as this is our thirtieth year of trading, what better than to take a look at the history of scent! The term ‘scent’ is often used alongside, or instead of, the terms ‘fragrance’ and ‘perfume’, but these can mean different things. A scent can be both natural (i.e. the scent of flowers) and man made, whereas a ‘fragrance’ or a ‘perfume’ tend to mean man made products.
We’re proud that a number of our products are VOC exempt, but we do realize that not everybody will understand what that means, or why we ensure they meet & exceed standards for VOC emissions. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) can be potentially dangerous, so it’s important to understand what they are - organic chemicals that have a low boiling point. Lack of VOC exempt/low VOC products is one of the biggest issues, both for the manufacturer & the consumer/user.
Recent statistics from Statistics Explained show that packaging waste figures across the EU have started to creep back up, especially paper and cardboard which came in at a staggering 41% of all packaging waste generated in 2014. With the marketing opportunities created by packaging your goods to send to end users, is this a waste of time if such large amounts of packaging are then being thrown away rather than kept, reused or recycled?
Christmas is always a time to try and kick back, relax, and have a break before the new year starts, but with the extra time spent at home does come the added chore of extra cooking and cleaning, especially during Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day – these are the 3 top days for people to cook big meals and buffets over the festive period and the top 3 days where it’s more than important than ever to keep on top of your food, prep and home hygiene!
Look around on the shelves at your nearest perfume store & you'll see that we've all become a bit sentimental with our fragrance options. None of the perfumes in the predicted top 10 for Christmas best sellers are brand new fragrances. So have our noses 'grown old', are our new retail scents 'out of touch' or are the clientele just wanting a touch of nostalgia back in their lives amidst all the advancements in modern life?
As Halloween is upon us, here at Vectair we thought we'd share some ghoulish hygiene horror stories of some horror habits. WARNING: those who are squeamish, prepare for some ghastly tales and studies. No tricks, no treats, these are habits that actually happen! So when those noisy kids try and scare you with their homemade skeleton outfit or a monsters mask, you'll be prepared to give them a fright with hygiene horror stories...
We like to think here at Vectair that we’re innovative and sit on the cutting edge of technology, so we’ve taken it a step further this month and put our minds to what different types of hygiene products may look like in 100 years….who knows what the future holds!
It’s important not to mislead customers with false advertising – common sense tells you that if something isn’t bought as described, there’s going to be problems. Brand reputation is crucially important yet so easily tarnished, so creating and upholding strict guidelines is extremely important with any type of marketing or PR you produce and syndicate!
We've been looking at other cultures and countries this week at Vectair and our focus led us to Brazil which has an abundance of vibrant, colourful plant life. With so many fragrant flowers, like freesias, begonias, magnolias and, not forgetting, the national flowers the Corsage Orchid and the 'Ipe-amarelo' it’s a wonder why anyone would want to spend long periods of time inside!
