Your sense of smell is one of your most powerful or “acute” senses, and since it is closely related to your memory, it can be a powerful tool for brand marketers who are trying to reach you.

Why is this important? Most advertisers (and your competition) commonly use sight, sound and touch to create an integrated brand experience, but few use smell. This is an opportunity for your company to be at the forefront of aromatic branding.

At Flat World Design, we can help you make your customers associate a pleasing and memorable aroma with your brand. Moreover, we would also suggest that you follow the advice of Dr Eric Spangenberg, Dean of the College of Business and Economics at Washington State University, who ran a test in a clothing store in the Pacific Northwest of the US to determine how scent affected customers by gender.

In his book, Brand Sense, Martin Lindstrom reveals that a full seventy-five percent of the emotions we generate on a daily basis are affected by smell…Next to sight, it’s the most important sense we have. These results come from a research study by Millward Brown, one of the largest research institutions in the world.
