Brand sensuality and brand experience: How much does religion matter?
This paper contributes to the growing research on consumer religiosity and brand relationships by conceptualizing the relationship between brand sensuality, religiosity, brand experience and its consequences such as brand preference and repurchase intention. This study aims to focus brand sensuality with its dimensions: auditory, visionary, touch, smell, taste, brand experience and religiosity. In this regards, religiosity is proposed as a mediator between brand sensuality and brand experience, as religiosity is triggered by five senses and religion is structured on the systematic approach even it is not necessary in the belief in a God, religion also gives individuals the sense of fulfillment and feeling of understood (Oullier 2014). Therefore, this study delineates that the positive brand sensuality can articulate the consumers’ religiosity, which directs consumers to have favourable brand experience along with having brand preference and repurchase intention.

Abstract

This paper contributes to the growing research on consumer religiosity and brand relationships by conceptualizing the relationship between brand sensuality, religiosity, brand experience and its consequences such as brand preference and repurchase intention. This study aims to focus brand sensuality with its dimensions: auditory, visionary, touch, smell, taste, brand experience and religiosity. In this regards, religiosity is proposed as a mediator between brand sensuality and brand experience, as religiosity is triggered by five senses and religion is structured on the systematic approach even it is not necessary in the belief in a God, religion also gives individuals the sense of fulfillment and feeling of understood (Oullier 2014). Therefore, this study delineates that the positive brand sensuality can articulate the consumers’ religiosity, which directs consumers to have favourable brand experience along with having brand preference and repurchase intention.
