G12. the Effect of (Non-)Appetizing Ambient Scents on Consumers’ Affinity Toward Vices and Virtues in the Retail Environment

Appetizing (non-appetizing) ambient scents decrease consumers’ personal control and increase their affinity toward vice (virtuous) offerings. Appetizing scents increase affinity toward vice offerings via increased visual attention, enhancing recall of vice products, desire for vice products, and store attitude. Effects are tested in three field studies at three different retailers.
