The Travel Tester 5 Senses Test

For all products we review, we like to put them to our so-called “5 Senses Test”. This includes:

  • LOOK
    • style, shape, features (pockets, zippers, handles), colours, sizes, etc.
  • SOUND
    • actual sound, opening sound of zippers, sound the fabric/material makes, but also the sound of the brand promise
  • SMELL
    • actual smell, but also how the idea of this product ‘smells’ to us: when would we use this?
  • FEEL
    • feel of the fabric/material, softness, weight, carry comfort and also ease of use
  • TASTE
    • actual taste and possible ingredients, but also if this is our taste (our style) or not

We always end our 5 Senses Test with the question: Does this product make us happy?
