Essence Slows the Rate of Hedonic Decline By Adding Meaning

Enjoyment tends to decline with repeated exposure but factors can slow the rate of hedonic decline. Perceived essence (i.e., special aura), slows hedonic decline by adding meaning to repeated experiences. It led to greater meaning, leading to prolonged enjoyment of an experience, greater willingness to consume, and greater actual consumption.
