Foreword

It is with great pleasure and anticipation that we unveil the results of the Olfactory Garden 2023 – Results, organized by Archiol Competitions. This unique design competition challenged participants to envision and craft an olfactory garden, a sanctuary where the sense of smell reigns supreme, captivating visitors in an immersive sensorial experience.

The Olfactory Garden competition has been an exploration of creativity, ingenuity, and the boundless possibilities of design. Entrants from around the world have ventured into the realm of scent, crafting spaces that celebrate the beauty and diversity of fragrances while harmonizing with their surroundings.

With the primary objective of creating an immersive environment that celebrates the olfactory sense, participants have surpassed expectations in delivering designs that stimulate, engage, and enchant. From floral symphonies to earthy reveries, each submission has offered a unique perspective on how to curate a sensory journey through the magic of scent.

Throughout the competition, participants have embraced the goals set forth with zeal and imagination. Sensory stimulation, curated fragrance palettes, harmonious integration, accessibility and inclusivity, educational value, and sustainability have been the guiding principles behind each design, resulting in a rich tapestry of ideas that reflect both innovation and sensitivity to our natural world.
