Scent Pocket

To help sell scented candles in a contactless environment, this project leverages people’s sense of smell, instead of touch or sight, as a way for shoppers to discover and emotionally connect with the product. Every carved out space becomes a ‘scent pocket’ and each one is dedicated to a specific smell. People can walk in and out of each scent zone, which creates a unique sensorial experience that enables them to have both a positive shopping journey while also experiencing what each candle would smell like. Unlike traditional retail, the products are stored away, out of reach for the customers. The ‘scent pockets’ are also open to the outside, which enables the scents to be used as a tactic to tease and attract passers-by into the store.
