“La Colette” is the location of the olfactory installation, which refers both to a small hill and to the female name: Colette. Gleaned from the sides of the paths: rosemary, lavender, juniper, thyme, deer droppings, mosses,… are arranged in the chapel. Diffusers highlight certain smells. Fan choreographies, visitors stir the air with fans, bringing olfactory particles to their noses.
