Nominee: Brightsign Talisman Perfume Collection

BrightSign launched the Talisman perfume collection, into a new market at House of Rituals, and to mark the brand’s 20th anniversary, First Impression built a display around the innovative use of ‘visual light communication’ controlled by BrightSign players. Once a perfume is selected based on the customer’s inputs on an iPad, an LED light underneath the bottle is illuminated. If the customer picks up the glass pipette from the perfume bottle, a video plays describing the perfume. A fully custom skin around the BrightSign players allows them to interact smoothly with the iPads, and the application delivers valuable marketing data.

  1. The Talisman collection combines light and scent to make House of Rituals an in-store experience like no other. Customers enter the basic perfume ingredients that they like (The Fresh, The Florals, The Sensuals, The Woods, The Orientals) and the application illuminates LED lights under all the bottles of perfumes aligned with this scent.
  2. To create the display, First Impression built a bespoke bridge between two different programming worlds. A development team of six programmers created a fully custom skin around the BrightSign players, allowing the players (running BrightSign OS) to interact smoothly with the iPads (running iOS). This innovation extends BrightSign players beyond their normal functionality.
  3. Alongside creating an exceptional customer experience, the application delivers valuable purchasing data to Rituals. The display can connect the options showcased to the customer with what they eventually purchased and can even show metrics on most popular times and hours of sales.
  4. First Impression has offered House of Rituals a flexible, easy to access approach to managing their in-store brand experience through a custom store control system and App. At the click of a button, content delivered by the screens can be changed for the new season, or for holidays such as Christmas or Valentine’s Day.
  5. House of Rituals runs on a store management system. First Impression created a custom plug-in to allow the BrightSign application to extract data. As a result, the screens automatically reflect store opening times and can also be powered down altogether. The application also draws on the data to ensure that the customer is only offered lines that are available in store on that specific day. Video Link: https://player.vimeo.com/video/496847795
