Escalators transformed into scent-filled tunnels for Air Wick

AUSTRALIA - Reckitt Benckiser, along with Reed Pacific Media, Momentum Worldwide and Creative Works Australia, used scent technologies to turn escalators in three shopping malls into experiential journeys promoting a new Air Wick candle product.

Escalators transformed into scent-filled tunnels for Air Wick

The companies enclosed the escalators in a tunnel structure that was then filled with mood lighting, visuals of the Air Wick Multicolour Black Edition candles and the smell of the 'Purple Blackberry Fig' variety of the product.

The scent came not from actual candles, but from scent technology deployed by Reed Pacific Media. The installation appeared in Westfield Shopping Centres in Parramatta (New South Wales), Southland (Victoria) and Garden City (Queensland).

The company also handed out scent-infused brochures—with a coupon, of course—at the top and bottom of the escalators.
