For over twenty years I have specialised within branding, taste and emotion marketing research.
I am happy to announce that I will be joining as a lecturer in marketing on the masters course Management of the Flavor & Fragrance Industry at Grasse. Grasse is considered the world’s capital of perfume.
I will be teaching on the Modern Flavour and Fragrance Industry. Focussing on the emotional messages from taste, flavour and fragrance. I will be illuminating the role of fashionability and need states in making tastes and aromas attractive.
I am confident that this change will allow me to do one of my favourite things—inspiring the next generation. I will be starting in January 2019. I invite you to join me in this exciting new chapter to continue our mutually beneficial partnership.
I am still consulting and conducting research. You will still enjoy the same commitment and dedication from me, with additional experience from this region. In light of this I have produced a new report called “Aroma Signature Analytics – Quantifying Emotional Preference”. I have Quantified Emotional Preference using over 2,000 online responses to these brands:
- L’Homme Ideal Eau de Parfum — Guerlain
- Boss Bottled — Hugo Boss
- Terre D’Hermès — Hermès
- Black Opium— Yves Saint Laurent
- Bloom— Gucci
- Verveine / Verbena— L’Occitane
In this report, I have addressed the quantification of emotions that are created by the aroma. Quantification is desirable as it provides confidence and allows direct inter-brand comparisons.
Feel free to write to me in order to obtain detailed instructions in order for you to replicate my method.
