Abstract

本研究は, 快適職場環境の形成に香りの効果を有効的に活用するための基礎的なデータを得る目的で行われた. 実験は, 被験者である14名の女子学生おのおのに対して, レモンの香りのある実験室とレモンの香りのない実験室という2つの異なった環境下における単純加算作業の成績, 生理的変化, 気分変化を調べ, その差を比較検討した. 実験結果は, レモンの香りは作業効率を変化させないが, 疲労を軽減させ, 活力の低下を予防することを示唆した.

The purpose of this study is to effectively utilize fragrance in order to form a comfortable working environment, for which we obtained necessary data. The subjects were 14 female students. We made them do addition work in laboratories with and without lemon fragrance, and investigated their task performances, physiological changes and mood conditions. Our results showed that, although the existence or nonexistence of fragrance did not affect their work efficiency, it was revealed that fragrance mitigated exhaustion and maintained vigor.
