Droga5 London has launched a campaign for personal care brand Radox. The work centers on the power of fragrance and its effect on mood, emphasizing how showering with Radox shower gels can help transform moods. That spirit is at the heart of the campaign called “Emo.”
The spot demonstrates the nature of mood transformation by showing a well-known stereotype, the grumpy teenager, in a totally different state to what you might expect. 
“During my misspent teenage years as a hateful, nihilistic young goth, I wish someone had told me about the mood-altering properties of Radox,” said David Kolbusz, chief creative officer, Droga5 London. “Let this campaign serve as a message to all children of the night--misery is a choice. Fragrance can save you.”

Droga5 London ECD Rick Dodds added, “It is scientifically proven that fragrance can change your mood. So as well as dramatizing this, we also wanted the spot itself to have the same transformative power and leave people in a happy and uplifted mood.”
