Bringing the Product Closer: the Effect of Scented Advertising on Perceived Psychological Distance and Product Evaluation

This paper experimentally investigates the effect of scented advertising on perceived psychological distance and evaluation of the advertised product. The results suggest that scented advertisements make the product more attractive and increase purchase intentions. This is due to the power of scent to increase psychological proximity towards the products.
