After living abroad where air quality had a huge impact on daily life, I set out to create smarter air care solutions that combine air purification with effective scent diffusion, utilizing fragrance oils that meet a higher standard for safety and sustainability.

NextScent, the only scent marketing company accepted as a U.S. Green Building Council Member, announced today the launch of their innovative Ventus Home and Ventus Ion whole-home air care solutions. These patent-pending systems purify the air and distribute natural fragrances with unmatched performance and safety.

Traditional home fragrance products are often a major contributor to indoor air pollution and are only capable of scenting a small area. Many use heat, flame, aerosols or messy oil and wax, which can damage furniture and floors. Candles can be dangerous and account for more than 7,600 home fires and 81 deaths annually.

Consumers can now experience pure air and enjoy pure scent throughout their home with these pet-friendly and kid-safe systems capable of scenting up to 1,500 square feet.

Ventus systems use dry-evaporative technology to release fragrance into a filtered air stream. Because the fragrance is in a true gaseous state, it remains airborne and can travel further throughout any space. The fan-based systems distribute the fragrances and proprietary software controls the output to ensure consistent performance throughout the life of each scent-filter cartridge.

Ventus scent-filter cartridges are rated to 240 hours and utilize an H13 True HEPA filter that’s 99.9% effective at removing airborne pollutants like dust, smoke, dander, mold, bacteria, and viruses. An organic substrate is infused with fragrance oils that are allergen and CMR-free and biodegradable. The cartridge body is made from bio-plastic so the entire cartridge is biodegradable.

This technology and other innovations are part of the strategy behind NextScent Inc. Industry veterans, David Amaral and Robert Blaylock, who co-founded NextScent Inc. to bring consumers solutions that are smarter, safer, more affordable and environmentally responsible. They are also working with leading fragrance suppliers to develop a collection of fragrances that are certified safe and biodegradable.

“For more than 16 years, I helped develop and deliver environmental scent solutions to some of the world’s largest hotel, retail and casino brands,” said David Amaral, creator of Ventus Home and Ventus Ion. “After living abroad where air quality had a huge impact on daily life, I set out to create smarter air care solutions that combine air purification with effective scent diffusion, utilizing fragrance oils that meet a higher standard for safety and sustainability.”

With its contemporary design and versatile placement options, the Ventus Home and Ventus Ion systems fit seamlessly in any home. The Ventus Ion incorporates an internal air quality sensor and high output plasma ionizer for indoor air quality monitoring and enhanced purification. These systems are easily controlled via the NextScent smart App as well Google Home and Alexa. This enables consumers to scent their homes when they want, and at their desired intensity. They can set system alerts for air quality changes, and reminders for ordering additional cartridges. Ventus Home and Ventus Ion are available in black or white models and are available for pre-order, by visiting
