The Power of Scent

One of the best and yet most overlooked aspects of marketing involves the sense of smell. 

Science proves that smell has a powerful ability. An ability that drives behaviors on both a subconscious and instinctive level. 

The scent is powerful to the human body. It affects our mood, triggers memories, and even improves our cognition.

Smells are first processed through the olfactory bulb. Which has a direct connection to two brain areas that react to emotion and memory. Not even visual, auditory, and tactile information pass through these areas. This explains why scent is more powerful than any other sense to trigger these emotions!

What Is Scent Marketing?

Scent marketing is using certain fragrances to link experiences between customers and brands. The right fragrance will help to communicate a clear likable brand identity. That heightens a company’s value perception. Which improves customer linger time, attracts new customers, and increases sales. 

Attaching that ability through specific fragrances can influence your consumers toward more purchases. While giving them a positive association with your brand. 

Have you ever walked into a retail space and differentiated the brand solely by its scent? If so, you most likely have a clear idea of what scent marketing can do.

Capitalizing on prior positive memories and associations develops a response to your brand. That stays consistent each time a consumer experiences a particular fragrance (Scent Marketing).

Early scent marketing was achieved by workers spraying the scents by hand throughout the store. One of these well-known marketing examples was done by Abercrombie & Fitch. The proprietary line of scents is spread throughout each corner of the store by nebulizers to fully engage the shopper and reduce purchasing inhibitions.
