In order to understand the emotional purchasing experience, a qualitative research method based on descriptive phenomenological approach was implemented because of the need for using lived experiences of the participants. As Colaizzi method is systematic in methodology, it was used for data analysis. Deep interviews with 14 people were conducted based on judgmental sampling until obtaining saturation. Validation of the results was obtained through bracketing implemented by the researcher, referring to the participants and earning their agreement. Finally, four themes were emerged and the process of “ cognition, emotion, appraisal, and decision making” can be extracted combining the emerged themes. Research findings are very helpful in better understanding of consumers’ behavior and predicting their purchasing behavior.
