Biography – Terry Jacobson
It all started 9 years ago when a missed flight home from New York rewarded Terry Jacobson with a bonus extra day in windy San Francisco. What he didn’t know was that this chance overlay would bring him a new idea too irresistible to turn down.
Pouring over the paper and a cup of strong percolated coffee at breakfast the following morning, he happened across the next big trend in marketing – Smell.
The coffee didn’t taste great that morning but its rich aroma signaled the start of a true adventure that would take him on a journey into the multi-billion dollar world of fragrance as well as a romantic discovery of personal magnitude – the power of our own human sense of smell to positively impact our lives and the environments around us.
Terry Daniel Jacobson, the Founder and Group CEO of AllSense is a highly creative, commercially savvy business owner with a keen nose for trends and a passion for creating experiences that deliver compelling results for audiences, clients and partners.
Born in South Africa, with half lives in Australia and Hong Kong, he now calls Singapore home. Terry is a keen trendspotter and passionately driven entrepreneur of the highest order. He draws his inspiration from a rich cultural background and the diverse businesses he has run in the past.
Terry is a pioneer in the marketing niche of ‘Sensory Marketing’ (or what he prefers to refer to as ‘Sensory Communication’), shaping market direction in the design of brand fragrances and the application of commercial scent delivery technologies.
After sight, our sense of smell is the strongest of all human senses and the closest linked to memory and emotion. Specialists in the sensory design of environments, Terry and his team imbue the ‘brick and mortar’ built environment with soft sensory touches that enhance appeal, uplift mood and promote well-being of inhabitants.
Working with a blue chip client base including ION Orchard, Paragon, Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons, Mount Elizabeth Novena and CK Tang to name but a few; AllSense consults to clients across varied industries from retail, hospitality and healthcare, to education and even the military.
The festive season of 2014/15, Terry has launched his company’s first home-scent product range together with Tangs and Takashimaya. “I know what scents Singaporeans enjoy,” says an excited Jacobson.
“There are many global fragrance products offered in our local market, but these fragrance styles are developed in the USA or Europe with little attention to our local sensory palette. Some work but I find many miss the mark. I intend to correct this imbalance by offering Asian-centric and specifically Singaporean styled fragrances.”
“So far this has been more than a business for me. It has been a rediscovery of this mysterious sense that most of us take for granted,” ponders Terry in a moment of self-reflection on his success, which has also turned out to be a romantic journey into his own inner space.
