Sick of fragrance counter employees offering you a little spritz of something new? Scentest Communications has made it possible to skip these pesky encounters with the help of new technologies.

The Scentest stations are five ft. kiosks that allow perfume shoppers to dispense their own samples. No more worries of breaking a bottle or being pressured into making a purchase.

The little kiosk, adorned with paid ads from perfume companies, lets shoppers sample various scents from a dropper on the side. Featured brands include Armani, Ralph Lauren, Kenzo, Bulgari, CK, Cerruti, Cacharel, Lancôme, Paul Smith, YSL and Azzaro.

Over 75 malls in North America have already received Scentesters, but the company approximates totals to rise up to 550. The kiosks will be stationed near the fragrance counters of department stores, malls and other perfume retailers.
