Dunkin’ Donuts: Flavour Radio
US doughnut and coffee brand Dunkin’ Donuts has rolled out a scent-based advertising campaign called Flavor Radio in South Korea’s capital city of Seoul.
Targeting early morning commuters, the brand installed coffee aroma atomisers in the city’s buses, which release a java-charged scent when the Dunkin’ Donuts jingle is played on the vehicle’s radio, creating a subtle link between coffee and Dunkin’ Donuts. The clever campaign worked – the brand reported a 29% increase in coffee sales in Seoul.
