The Idealist, The Sensualist, The Seducer
The Lover is about creating relationships and evoking emotions. No man is an island – they want to make people feel special and meet this need. They see the world in the perspective… what has love got to do with the journey we call life? Everything. Lover brands like to celebrate the physical joys of being human, fostering intimacy and bliss in their consumers.
The lover is passionate and represents anything that pleasures the senses – beautiful things, indulgent foods, enticing scents.
At their best Lovers brand archetype will be magnetic and committed, however at their worst they can be seen as people-pleasers, obsessive and shallow.
