Yankee Candle and Robot Add-Ons Launch New Mother's Day Gift
GEORGETOWN, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/24/13 -- Yankee Candle Company
and Robot Add-Ons have teamed together to launch "RoomAroma," a new
way to bring your favorite Yankee Candle fragrance into one's home
for those who own a Roomba -- the popular robotic floor vacuum
And what mom doesn't like a clean home and a great smelling home?
As Roomba glides effortlessly across floors picking up dirt and dust
-- air from inside the robotic vacuum flows over a signature Yankee
Candle infused gel-fragrance module that is attached securely to the
back of the Roomba. The revolutionary design allows the mild stream
of air to safely spread fragrance automatically and efficiently
throughout the home as Roomba cleans.
The Yankee Candle fragrance module presently comes in four popular
fragrances: Clean Cotton, MacIntosh, Sun & Sand and Vanilla Cupcake.
"RoomAroma is the combination of two amazing brands and products that
change the way fragrance is distributed in the home" said Jim Lynch,
co-founder of Robot Add-Ons, who got the idea for the RoomAroma while
testing other "add-on" accessories in homes of Roomba owners. "We
noticed a lot of Yankee Candle products in people's homes," added
Barry Stout, co-founder of Robot Add-Ons. "It seemed the same people
who liked their homes smelling nice also liked clean floors!"
"Surely the DNA of a Roomba lover is the same as a Yankee Candle
lover," said Lynch.
It was not long before Lynch and Stout decided to combine the
strengths of both Yankee Candle Fragrance and Roomba to produce what
is now known as "RoomAroma" that is sold at all Bed Bath & Beyond
stores. The company is headquartered in Georgetown, Mass. with
distribution centers in New Jersey and Danvers, Mass.
