The representation of human vices.
The second fragrance brings us to "the Garden of earthly delights" by Hieronymus Bosh, exhibited at El Prado museum in Madrid. The triptych is considered a masterpiece of surrealism for its complex symbolism: humanity is represented, according to the Christian doctrine of the Middle Ages, with all its vices and its perversions in a satirical representation of men's sins.
On the extra panels, visible only when the Triptych is closed, in the upper part God appears in the act of creation: the world is represented like a transparent sphere. Once opened it reveals its great beauty.
Paradiso Perduto's fragrance took inspiration from the central panel, where pleasures and love are represented: exotic animals symbolizing lust, a crowd of nude figures some of them in erotic abandon, others in chrysalis stage are fed by birds that carry cherries and strawberries in their breaks, considered fruits with aphrodisiac properties. In the third panel the scene turns into a demonic concert: musical instruments become means to inflict suffering and pain. An olfactory representation of the contrasts present triptych.
