The Campaign

We decided to awaken bright senses of our audience in situation of total darkness when our feelings more heightened. We created the world’s first cinema Aroma Session and gave to the viewers an opportunity to feel rich aroma of new ‘Jacobs Monarch’ in the most effective way.

Creative Execution

Can the viewers not only see, but fully experience what movie characters feel? With new ‘Jacobs Monarch’ with even more intense flavor it became possible. We made the first Aroma Session ‘Jacobs Monarch’ in Moscow and St Petersburg cinemas. We created a 5D commercial about new ‘Jacobs’ aroma and realized it in situation of total darkness before the movie session, while our senses more heightened. During the screening of the ‘Jacobs Monarch’ story, special aroma systems were filling the cinema hall with the scent of freshly roasted coffee beans. Then we offered the viewers not just to taste a cup of our new ‘Jacobs Monarch’ and gain the unusual brand experience, but more importantly empathize with the story with all their senses. Journalists, bloggers and celebrities have also experienced our Aroma Sessions. It became ‘must visit’ places and got a huge buzz in popular media and social networks.
