Would You Like To Sample Our Perfume?

I have always been fascinated with advertising campaigns surrounding public transit system and airports; especially since I spend quite a lot of my time there. It is quite interesting where advertisers such as Europe's largest outdoor advertising company JCDecaux will choose to display what for best impact.

A well formed and placed ad will give something interesting for the passer-by to look at but JCDecaux now wants more than a few seconds glance from us. On top of having a visual impact, ads might now house a station where a perfume can be spritzed and sampled. These stations will contain perfume which can either be triggered released with a press of a button, at timed intervals, or by sensed motion of a passer-by.

There is a system such as this already in place in Japan where a restaurant uses it to emit the smell of a chosen item on their menu. The smell of teriyaki chicken could probably make me hungry at any time!

What do you think of this? Would you like to sample a perfume without stepping foot into a department store or be spritzed unknowingly by a sensor-triggered perfume station?

i'm with you on mass transit advertising. and i'm fascinated by the idea of scent being triggered by the motion of a passer-by, as long as I don't smell like it all day.

This is sooooo interesting.
But I agree with FH as long as the smell don't stay all day.

Hope you're feeling better, darling.
Take care
Lots of Luv

It seems to be a great idea...That is, unless one gets sprayed by a perfume he/she absolutely hates. Lol.
Interesting concept though ;). (As long as the above scenario doesn't happen.)

Lol, perfumes are so personal so those bus stations/airports will either smell fantastic or nauseating! It will be so interesting to see which perfume they choose for what areas (city centre vs. residential).
