Consumers were already snapping up aromatherapy products like scented sleeping masks, candles, oil diffusers, and scented jewelry even before we all found ourselves housebound.

Scent can have a powerful effect on our mood and sense of well-being – a connection that helped drive the home fragrance market to $6.7 billion in 2018. And who couldn't use a bit of aromatherapy these days to lift our spirits as we "shelter in place"?

Aromatherapy has been around for centuries, as Harpreet Gujral, program director of integrative medicine at Sibley Memorial Hospital explains on the Johns Hopkins Medicine website.

“When inhaled, the scent molecules travel from the olfactory nerves directly to the brain and especially impact the amygdala, the emotional center of the brain," Gujral says.

Nacho Mother's Holiday Tradition

Taco-Scented Wrapping Paper: <br />Nacho Mother's Holiday Tradition | H&H Graphics

In a season rich with nostalgia and tradition playing out against a backdrop of crackling fires, twinkling lights and tidings of comfort and joy, the marketplace was clamoring for something mas.

And that something was taco-scented wrapping paper.

So many people, in fact, recognized that wrapping gifts in paper that looks and smells like a Taco Bell Crunchwrap was an awesome idea that supplies quickly ran out. That is what happens when you take something as popular as a taco and you create a multisensory experience around it. Who wouldn't want to wake up on Christmas morning and follow the smell of tacos to a stack of gifts wrapped in five layers of paper taco ingredients?

As the latest in a string of quirky, branded holiday products, Taco Bell – with an assist from the H&H Graphics special effects  team – released wrapping paper infused with the scent of its Triple Double Crunchwrap. With sheets designed to look like beef, cheese, lettuce and tomatoes, tostadas and a tortilla, the limited edition scented paper was offered exclusively on Amazon by Taco Bell Canada and sold out within 48 hours.

Case Study: Special Effects Printing for High-End Wine Branding | H&H Graphics

By all accounts the cabernet produced by the luxury vintners at Tusk Estates is a very fine wine. The 2009 is described as "precise and intense, and yet very delicate." The 2011 was "a perfect experience of pleasure" and the 2013 was "among the prettiest, silkiest and most amazing" of cabernets.

But as a blogger for Wine Spectator describes, this was about more than wine: "Tusk isn't just based on opulent winemaking but also on luxury branding," MaryAnn Worobiec writes.

It was not a wine destined for ordinary packaging. That's where H&H Graphics came in.

How to Engage Consumers & Increase Sales with Multisensory Printing (A Webinar) | H&H Graphics

"Brands have to be powered up to deliver a full sensory and emotional experience. It is not enough to present a product or service visually in an ad." – Martin Lindstrom, author of Brand Sense

The retail downturn has created an even greater need for packaging, displays, promotions and signage that break through increasingly competitive shopping environments, and visual differentiation is not enough.

At H&H Graphics, we are experts at using multisensory special effects to cut through the distractions and create customer experiences that drive sales. We've tapped into decades of third-party research as well as our own R&D to develop proven methods of generating consumer engagement and memorable brand impact using multisensory appeals. We've worked with brand managers and commercial printers on a wide variety of multisensory campaigns and we’d like to share what we know with you.

In our upcoming webinar, you will learn how ESPN, Bath & Body Works, Field Notes, and a Cape Cod Restaurant are all using multisensory printing to increase consumer engagement and sales. We will discuss how and why they use special effects in their retail packaging, POP displays and other printed materials.
