Abstract:Purpose: The purpose of the paper is to present and discuss the concept of Profound Affection. The paper presents a framework (a model) for understanding why products and Services may have a profound affection on customers/ users and to discuss shortly how this framework may be applied when developing new attractive products/services or when existing products/services are assessed for their attractiveness.

Methodology/Approach: The research methodology is a combination of desk research (literature analysis); reflections and model building.

Findings: The authors suggest a structural model as a possible expanded framework for future Kansei/ Affective Engineering research studies. According to the model profound affection is a result of the following six enabling factors: 1. Sensing Experience; 2: Emotional Experiences (Kansei); 3. Behavioural Experiences/ action; 4. Social Experiences/ Interactions & Relations; 5. Spiritual Experiences/ Moral; Ethics; 6: Intellectual Experiences/ Cognition.

Originality/Value: The author defines “Profound Affection” as a comprehensive state; which is a result of a combination and interaction of sensing; intellectual/cognitive; emotional; social; behavioural and spiritual experiences. “Profound Affection” is not only a result of sensing or emotional experiences.
