Case Study: The Tower Residences at The Ritz Carlton

Sarasota, Florida, USA.
Ritz Carlton Residences, Sarasota


The world-famous Ritz-Carlton brand is synonymous with a lifestyle of style and grace. The Tower Residences at The Ritz Carlton with its 80 luxury apartments was looking to provide a pleasant fragrance in and around the communal areas. They chose VIBE® & VIBE® Plus.

A masterful blend of waterfront vistas, elegant architecture and unparalleled personal services, The Tower Residences at The Ritz Carlton resort in Sarasota, Florida, USA, are reminiscent of the splendor and elegance of Sarasota’s heritage.

Say what?

Director of Facilities, Jaro Gutknecht, had tried various fragrance systems, yet he wasn’t impressed – he had found that they provided intermittent fragrance delivery and low fragrance coverage.

Mr Gutknecht wanted something reliable that worked uniformly, that provided a pleasant fragrance and that wasn’t too overpowering. Mr Gutknecht says: “We had tried other systems in the past, mainly passive systems with fans, but none would work consistently. Some were strong in the beginning but wouldn’t last, and their fragrance coverage in terms of area was very small. I had given up looking for an effective solution because I truly could not find anything that would work successfully – that is, until I was introduced to VIBE® and VIBE® Plus from Vectair Systems.”

Product choice?

The Tower Residences at The Ritz Carlton installed two VIBE® dispensers filled with Cucumber Melon fragrance cartridges directly onto the walls in the communal hallways.

One VIBE® Plus dispenser filled with two Cucumber Melon fragrance cartridges was installed next to the air conditioning duct that fed through to The Tower Residences at The Ritz Carlton main lobby area. In this way, VIBE® Plus was concealed from visitors’ view.
“In terms of consistency, we have found that the fragrance strength on day 90 is the same as on day one. The coverage is excellent, and it truly enhances the senses as customers walk around the Residences. Safe to say, VIBE® and VIBE® Plus have exceeded my expectations, and are both systems that I would recommend.”
