Brand is a perceptual entity that has begun in its materialization, but is reflected into consumer perceptions so is subject to the laws of neuromarketing. The conflict that arises between consumer desires and goal producers overbridge the emotional branding. Emotional branding is based on the neuromarketing influence of amygdal on customer choice. The brand is a producers most valuable property. According to holistic marketing there are three relevant categories for building a brand: personalization, integration and internalization. Comparing modern Gobe’s premise of emotional branding and brand Lindstrom’s sensibility the brand is transforming into, so-called, “living organism”. Since the brand with social validation is connected with consumers identity, it can be seen through the context of socially responsible marketing. Keller’s principle of creating brands, among other, is based on the systematic and image that reflects the product. Consumer brandsphere is the most important category, which includes a corporation, macro-environment, distribution and competition. The market value of stamps can be understood through the context of the brand essence, or thanks to the image and brand cognition. However, the brand as a phenomenological matrix becomes a psychosocial phenomen, because the 80% of the brand essence is based on the values of the untouchable.
