on its inherent brand values:
Launched during WWI, one year after the introduction of the Kellogg’s Bran Flakes, All-Bran was introduced thereafter in 1916. In
1984 All-Bran sparked a “ﬁber fad” when they added a health message from the National Health Institute. The cereal has always had a
“digestive health” focus but without highlighting the emotional beneﬁts of these claims. The brand’s attempt to renew the conversation
began with the “10-Day Promise;” which gives consumers a simple way to incorporate ﬁber into their daily routine.
As a parity brand, All-Bran’s competitors offer the same nutritional beneﬁts and ﬁber offerings but with greater variety. In the
category it is a distant second to Special K (also owned by Kellogg’s) and is on par with Fiber One and Quaker Oats products in terms
of revenue. The Original product (the ﬁber strands) is different than the competitors in the category in ﬂavor and texture; which may
also play a part in its smaller market share versus Special K.
The brand embodies the “SAGE” archetype and gently communicates a call-to-action for healthy living to consumers who are
The Millenial segment (18-24-year-olds) are more likely to purchase functional foods (including ﬁber products) as a way to make up for

How does the brand own its “healthy promise” to consumers?
The “10 Day Promise” messaging helps drive the point of why consumers should care about their ﬁber intake. The brand has created
a social engagement platform on its website that makes it easier for consumers to ﬁnd other people who care about healthy eating
and can feel supported about their healthy lifestyle efforts.

the fragrance repertoire
Wednesday, 7am. home:
I wake up from a slightly unsettling dream about this cocktail party I have to plan for in one week. My boss, Helen, seems to think that I
handle the stress of event planning very well since I haven’t cried like her other assistants before me. I wish I could tell her that I actually
don’t fear her but shamelessly want her job; my ambition manages to completely quell my nervousness when I have to interact with her. I
have my Wednesday morning meeting preparation down to a science--shower and lotion for 7 minutes, dress to kill in 3 minutes, apply my
black liner and red lipstick in 3 minutes and then top it off with my walk-through and turn in my favorite scent I’ve named Naked Ambition;
my complimentary mix of SPICY WOODY & WATER from my Synesthesia fragrance repertoire. I like to think my perfume puts me in the
right head space--its sexy and strong but also exudes a “mellowness” after 2 hours--and it’s perfect for this kind of day.
7:05 pm., leaving work.
I’m wrapping up my day and ready to meet Dana and her friends in Chinatown after work. And I need a pick me up; so naturally I grab my
stock of Red Bull in the fridge and my “good luck” vial of my FLORAL SPICY perfume to rub on my pulse points. I call it my good luck
perfume because every time I wear it, I always end up with a phone number or free drink by the end of the night--so naturally I’m going to
wear an extra dose tonight.
Saturday, 11am. home:
Received a text from Dennis, a really cute grad student I met at the bar with Dana and her friends from last night; he wants to see if we can
catch a matinee. That damn perfume works like a charm every time. I’m glad he wants to meet in the daytime-- I can decide if I really like him
when we get a chance to really talk without low lighting and alcohol. The cute afternoon date is so comfortable; I’ll probably wear my new
sundress and my CLEAN scent-- it’s got a casual and crisp smell that makes me skip.
Monday, 11:15am. work:
My boss seems to be in an unusually good mood; and by good mood I mean she actually managed to say please when she asked me to
come into her ofﬁce before noon. No one is allowed in her ofﬁce or really allowed to ask her questions in the morning--she claims it gives
her unnecessary migraines-- it’s her attempt at being proactive. She tells me the VP of Marketing at HBO is excited about the cocktail
party at our museum and he would like to capture some raw footage for promotional vignettes. I’m so excited I almost hugged her; but of
course I just awkwardly bowed and excused myself from the ofﬁce.
I look for my phone to tell Dana the good news. I see a text from Dennis that he sent early in the morning. Can’t wait to see you again, you
always smell so delightful. Meet me from drinks tonight? xoxo Dennis. SCORE! I can’t wait for the end of the day. Good thing I brought my
new heels and my FLORAL SPICY perfume. Who knows maybe he’ll be my new date for the cocktail party.
