It takes place in the context of the Salon International du Patrimoine Culturel or International Heritage Show.

A second olfactory event takes place at the Salon but aimed at children aged from 7 to 12. It is titled Métiers A Vue De Nez! The workshop encourages them to discover artisanal professions (farmer, carpenter, cobbler, cook...) via their sense of smell. A reconstituted large-size castle decor puts the stress on both playfulness and history.

 The event is organized by Le Garde-Temps which specializes in polysensorial activities.

You can find more information here, both in French and English.
