Love At First Sight Or At First Smell? Order Effects of Olfactory and Visual Cues

This research examines the sequential order effects of sensory (e.g., olfactory, visual and auditory) cues/stimuli on product evaluations. Generally, results of five experiments show that product evaluations are more favorable when the visual stimulus is encountered before the olfactory stimulus. However, these effects are reversed under high levels of hunger.
