Uplifting your customer experience through scent
The nose is a scent detector and a good one at that, so use the natural powers of smell to improve your customer experience so that when customers are making purchase decisions, they can feel relaxed, comfortable, and calm. Leave a lasting impression on your customers with your fragrance and the next time they smell it, it will remind them of your brand

Build your Brand Identity the olfactory way
A study conducted by Chicago University researchers showed that the same identical pair of shoes were shown to the same group of people in two different settings. The group of people reacted and found the shoes more attractive when displayed in an area that had been scented. They even valued the shoes 15% more than the price they were.

This is an example of how scent marketing influences customers’ purchase decisions in a positive way. Combine 3 or more senses and you’re hitting the jackpot on brand impact being made on your customers.
