A Washington State University study in 2012 set out to discover the impact that a scented shopping centre would have on shoppers. Over 18 weekdays, the researchers watched more than 400 customers in a St. Gallen Mall in Switzerland.
The study found that shoppers in a scented shopping environment spent an average of 20% more. This is because certain fragrances help to warp the perceived length of time a consumer may spend in a particular area or centre.
