For the term, change of scenery, the exercise used, "le dépaysement" with un changement de décor used as alternative. I was wondering just what the distinction or nuance in the 2 terms is. Please explain when you would use one over the other. Thanks.

Hi. I am trying to figure out why this uses the passe compose if followed by 'que'.
Les fleurs que j'ai senties étaient belles.
Would you not be able to use "que j'aie senties" instead of "que j'ai senties", because I remember seeing that when there is "que" we use subjonctif. I do notice this seems to be past tense which is why I ask if the Subjonctif Passe can be used. I am unsure if I have worded my question well, in that you may understand. I appreciate any help provided.
Nous étions tous chocolat
Is this an idiomatic expression? It's not clear to me what this means. It seems that Julien forgot to buy the chocolate eggs, so does this expression mean that they had no chocolate? I've looked it up in dictionaries and online translators, but nothing comes up!
