Sensory Marketing offers a global view of the use of senses in marketing strategy based on consumers' perception and behaviour. Integrating the company constraints and classical approaches of branding and communication, the author presents sensory marketing as an emergent marketing paradigm in theory and practice. This book will be an important contribution that will provide useful reading for marketing scholars and consumer psychologists across the world.
"As a pioneer in the field of sensory marketing, Bertil Hultén is thoroughly familiar with this quickly growing marketing approach. In Sensory Marketing: Theoretical and Empirical Grounds he explains theoretical and practical aspects of sensory marketing and puts it into, for example, branding and neuromarketing perspectives. Through an overview of the development of marketing, sensory marketing is also related to a broader marketing context. This book is essential for marketing researchers and practitioners alike." –Christian Grönroos, Professor Emeritus, Hanken School of Economics, Finland

Recent years have witnessed an ‘interpretive turn’ in marketing and consumer research. Methodologies from the humanities are taking their place alongside those drawn from the traditional social sciences. Qualitative and literary modes of marketing discourse are growing in popularity. Art and aesthetics are increasingly firing the marketing imagination. This series brings together the most innovative work in the burgeoning interpretive marketing research tradition. It ranges across the methodological spectrum from grounded theory to personal introspection, covering all aspects of the postmodern marketing ‘mix’, from advertising to product development, and embracing marketing’s principal sub-disciplines.
