Customer Sense: How the 5 Senses Influence Buying Behavior
For years, marketers have been experimenting with the senses and sensory experiences to create better perceptions of their products.

How it tastes, how it smells, the sound that eating it makes, and the appearance of its packaging can all influence our perception of the potato chip itself.
