Interesting. I honestly never thought about it or even really noticed a particular smell in any casino other than the mentioned smoke/booze scent. I had no idea casinos were pumping in scents. I'll have to try and pay closer attention. Nice article Michael.
Great article. I have found this new series of Vegas articles very fascinating, and they are always of interest. The first time I went to Vegas, my wife and I stayed at the Venetian. The smell was overpowering to say the least. The interesting thing I always find is that the Palazzo smells just fine, while the V is headache inducing. Were it not for the smell, the V would always be my home base, as I love their poker room. The smell has actually prompted me to make some other casinos my home base instead. I'm looking forward to the next article.
Interesting article. Thanks. It was always clear that the Venetian was doing this but I hadn't actually realized how many other properties were employing the system but simply at lower levels. I know a lot of people don't like the scent at the Venetian (or at least the strength of the scent) but it has almost become their trademark.
Interesting article. I did not know the scenting was done on purpose. A couple years ago, my wife and I visited the Venetian. She hated the overpowering scent and I did not like it either. We have been back to Vegas about 10 times since then, but have not gone to the Venetian due to the overpowering scent.

Thanks for the info here LVM. I know Venetian is one of the top rooms on the strip, but I find myself staying away because of the smell. Too strong for me. I'll go to catch a deepstack event once in a while, but I have no desire to play cash there.
