)-- Nose Knows Design's Scent Canister Campaign has demonstrated how the incorporation of scent within a retail space can drive sales. The goal of the campaign was to increase candle sales in partner stores by adding a feature aroma, pure peony blush, in the area of the merchandise. The results saw a 173.98% increase in specific candle sales and a 153.42% increase in overall home fragrance sales.
Objectives of the Scent Canister Campaign were as follows:
Create soft aroma that is pleasing to staff and not overpowering
Increase candle sales by incorporating the aroma within a target area
Test logistics were as follows:
Four scented vs. unscented stores were compared over three weeks
Scent was dispersed from a battery-operated unit that created a silent scent trail
Fragrance machines were enclosed in custom canisters
Canisters were placed on tabletops with displays supporting merchandise for Mothers Day
The environment created by the addition of the fragrance encouraged longer engagement within the space and with the merchandise, with customers and staff alike reporting positive experiences.
