Meet Marcelo Zelicovich of Doctor Aromas

Today we’d like to introduce you to Marcelo Zelicovich.

Hi Marcelo, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.

My story begins in Buenos Aires, where I once walked the bustling streets, trying to make a living by scenting public restrooms. It wasn’t the most glamorous job, but it was a start, and I was determined to make a name for myself in this fragrant world.

One day, a desperate client reached out to me with an unusual request. His bathroom smelled fine, but his store had an unmistakable scent problem—it reeked of a public restroom! It wasn’t my area of expertise, but I couldn’t turn away from a challenge. I visited his store and embarked on a mission to uncover the source of this foul odor.

As I investigated, a thought occurred to me in 1994: If unpleasant odors could be evenly distributed through the air conditioning, why couldn’t we do the same with delightful scents? It was a revolutionary idea that sparked the inception of Doctor Aromas. In 2007, we set out on a mission to bring well-being through the often-underestimated sense of smell, and we aimed to do it in a groundbreaking way—through air conditioning.

Today, I stand proud, leading a team of thirty-four dedicated individuals at Doctor Aromas. But our impact extends far beyond our team; it touches the hearts and homes of over 100,000 households across the United States. Our fragrances have become a cherished presence in their daily lives, enhancing the spaces they hold dear.

We’ve achieved an incredible milestone by establishing our very own aerosol plant, where we craft our products with precision and care. This signifies our commitment to innovation and excellence, ensuring that every product bearing the Doctor Aromas name meets the highest standards of quality.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?

My journey was far from easy. I had faced adversity in my homeland, Argentina, where economic instability had brought me to the brink of bankruptcy.

With just $650 in my pocket, I arrived in the United States, a land of opportunity and dreams, determined to make my mark. I began my journey as a dishwasher in the vibrant streets of South Beach, striving to make ends meet. It was a humble start, driven by the determination to grasp my first opportunity.
