The Sweet Smell of Success

Standing Out with Scented Materials

More than any of the other senses, the sense of smell is closely linked to memory. A highly emotive sense, smell is a powerful trigger for recollection – a single scent can spontaneously evoke a long-forgotten memory. Thus, the right aroma can forge strong emotional currency.

It’s no surprise then that in marketing, the sense of smell is exponentially more effective than visual presentation alone. The perfume industry is built around this special connection. Custom fragrances convey a vast array of emotions, feelings and sensations; from desire to power, vitality to relaxation, novelty to nostalgia.

Utilizing scent in your marketing approach can create the emotional bond you need to drive sales and promote brand allegiance.
