Of all the 5 senses that has the human being the smell is the great forgotten. The western culture produces a large extent of stimuli by and for the senses of the sight and the hearing. The painting, the sculpture, the music and the audiovisual means are the most demanded and if not for the except of the perfumes, the smell would remain in the most absolute oblivion. Through this exhibition, we pretends to break a lance in favour of this abandoned sense.  With he the help of some diffusers, the visitors of the sample will be able to luxuriate themselves with a collection of flavours carefully selected among the most important of the world: plants, fruits, seeds, wood, flowers, smells of animal origin… Neither there is lucking allusions to the physiology of the sense of smell in humans, that will help to the visitors to understand better the function of which is perhaps the most enigmatic of our senses.
