Brands Get Creative with Holiday Pop Up Stores - CMO Today - WSJ
December 3, 2014 | WSJ | By NATHALIE TADENA.

SC Johnson’s Glade, the maker of air fresheners and home scents, is using its first-ever pop-up boutique in New York City’s Meatpacking District to “sell feelings” that are inspired by the brand’s fragrances. Visitors to the pop-up, which opened last month and runs through Dec. 23, can lounge in one of five interactive areas that are designed to embody feelings associated with Glade scents – the red honeysuckle nectar-scent inspired “Energized” room, for example, features an Oculus Rift virtual thrill ride. There’s also a “Scent Lab,” decorated with a mosaic wall made up of 1,500 scented candles, for visitors to sample scents up close.

“We’re continuing to transform Glade into a lifestyle brand, in part by appealing to a new generation of Glade customers with memorable experiences like the Glade Boutique and unexpected partnerships,” said Kelly Semrau, SC Johnson Senior Vice President Global Corporate Affairs.

Pop-up shops give brands that may not have its own year-round storefront the physical space to “really do something extraordinary and breakthrough,” noted Dan Katz-Golden, strategy director at branding firm Siegel+Gale. Many marketers are turning to pop-up shops for brand-building purposes rather than to boost sales, giving brands the luxury to create a unique in-store experience without having to worry so much about the nuts and bolts of selling products, he said.

For Every Holiday Party, the Right Drink - Multimedia Feature -
November 30, 2010

For Every Holiday Party, the Right Drink
Between now and New Year’s Day, even occasional drinkers will find numerous occasions to lift a glass. Some of these drinks will be out of your control. But there will likely be gatherings where you are the one doing the pouring. The working theory here is that, for every possible event, there is an ideal beverage: something that will match the food, match the company, match the feeling in the air. What follows is an exercise in situational drinking. Some of the beverages suggested are timeless, some are clever new inventions by the nation’s most forward-thinking bartenders. All are designed to impress and to comfort. — STEVEN STERN
