From our mother's womb to the cemetery, how do smells accompany us throughout our lives? Can our sense of smell help us to survive? Do scents also pass away? This eleventh issue explores the close links between our noses and the notions of life and death.
Nez proposes to discover the world through our olfactory sensations, with a multidisciplinary approach: art, literature, photography, science, history, gastronomy, perfumery... To understand the essential role of the sense of smell in our lives.
