Sensory marketing, a subset of psychological marketing is all about appealing to one or more of your customer's five senses to uniquely position your brand or product, thus successfully driving their behavior, judgment, or perceptions.
Going beyond the realms of digital marketing trends, psychological marketing targets the fundamentals- human emotion. Here are some of the brands that exhibited prolific sensory marketing tactics:

Intel: The classic five-note bong of Intel that accompanied brand commercials at the end successfully created a mass appeal to a commodity product that otherwise was lesser known to its end users.
