How does Aera work?

Aera converts liquid fragrance compounds into tiny droplets which in turn explode into billions of fragrance molecules to blend with ambient air. This process forces the release of all fragrance ingredients at once so the whole fragrance can be experienced. This is important because traditional methods release fragrance ingredients serially in the order of their volatility preventing smelling the whole fragrance at once and cause the scent effect to change in character over time.

What size room will Aera handle?

Aera is fully adjustable for different size rooms. When placed optimally, Aera is effective in rooms up to 2,000 square feet (185.8 square meters).

Where can I place Aera?

You must place Aera on a flat surface where it can take full advantage of the natural air currents in the space. See the User Guide for greater detail.

How does Aera differ from aerosol room fresheners?

Aera is what is known as a “continuous action” air freshener. Aera creates, maintains and evenly delivers scent effect continuously and in low concentrations of scent materials in the air and without alcohol, propellants or other harmful VOCs.
