  • Smell marketing: subtle aesthetics that cannot be seen or touched

    Smell marketing: subtle aesthetics that cannot be seen or touched

    What's the " Smell Marketing"? Do you think the coffee smell in Starbucks is really only from coffee? In fact, the strong coffee aroma that people smell in Starbucks stores is not all from coffee beans, but the product of scent marketing-the exclusive Starbucks aroma from the hands of perfumers. Similarly, the popcorn stalls in Disneyland will release the "artificial popcorn scent" when business is low, and soon customers will smell the fragrance. This marketing model, which is different from traditional taste and visual stimuli, uses specific smells to attract consumers' attention and memory is called smell marketing. The scientific journal Neuron once published a research report stating that among all sensory memories, smell is the least easily forgotten sensation. The data shows that people's accurate recall rate of smell can still reach 65% after one year. If you want to use the smell to form a unique brand mark, you need to make a scientific design based on the preferences of the target population, so that more people will like the brand because of the unclear taste and become loyal fans of the brand. For example, in the maternal and child product area of the shopping mall, the smell of baby powder will create a warm and comfortable feeling; in the swimsuit area, the smell of coconut will make you associate with coconut trees on the beach; in the underwear area, "comfortable lilac fragrance" "It is said that women can't help but walk into the fitting room. At the 2007 Frankfurt International Motor Show in Germany, BMW placed a side-source diffuser in its showroom and chose a specially designed BMW fragrance. For a while, guests smelled the fragrance, making BMW's showroom crowded. Car buyers think that new cars have a special smell of brand-new leather, and it is this special "new car smell" that often stimulates consumers' desire to buy cars. The success of this scent marketing was later imitated by major auto manufacturers and 4S shops. The hotel industry is well versed in the secrets of odor marketing, so different hotels have their own signature odors. For example, the lobby of the Westin Hotel has a unique floral fragrance of white tea, the Langham Hotel has a floral fragrance of ginger, the Hilton Hotel has a combination of lily of the valley, grass and musk, and the Shangri-La Hotel has vetiver, rosewood and amber based fragrances. Each hotel has its own unique fragrance, the purpose is to let guests trigger olfactory memory the moment they step into the hotel, and get a subconscious feeling of being at home. If the smell in the mall is the marketing of the brand, that person's perfume choice is to highlight the individual's impression. The trend of the perfume market in recent years can be summarized as the decline of popular perfumes, star perfumes are no longer popular, and niche perfumes are becoming more and more popular. When both Diorgen and Chanel N.5 were reduced to "street fragrances", people naturally began to look for more...

  • Chemical or Natural fragrance oils

    Chemical or Natural fragrance oils

    Many consumers talk about "chemical synthesis", and the natural flavor of the raw materials has always been the focus of dispute, but in fact, in the field of perfume, natural flavors are not necessarily better than synthetic flavors. 1. Natural flavors are derived from plants, animals and other materials, using distillation, supercritical carbon dioxide, and other methods to obtain fragrance substances from plants. In the past, perfumes were all made with natural essences. This phenomenon was not changed until the emergence of synthetic fragrances in the last century. 2. Natural flavors are usually more expensive than synthetic flavors, so many fragrance brands are more willing to claim to use natural flavors in order to create an organic and natural high-end image. But in fact, modern perfumes are mostly a mixture of synthetic fragrances, which shape the skeleton and flesh and blood of modern perfumes, while natural fragrances do not account for a high proportion, and may even contain no natural fragrances. Compared with natural fragrances, synthetic fragrances The type is rich, giving the perfumer great space; the fragrance is stable and not easy to change; it has little effect on human skin. Natural flavors are more likely to cause skin sensitivity and other adverse reactions
