Abstract:

Given the lack of knowledge about the relative importance of fragrance vs. other sensory inputs for business situations, this paper measures the expected 'economic' (i.e. pricing) performance of different ideas about fragrance in hotels vs. ideas about visual style, acoustic environment, and tactile aspects, respectively.

This presentation provides a tool which enables business and researchers alike to understand 'what works' in fragrance, and where.
