The second fragrance brings us to "the Garden of earthly delights" by Hieronymus Bosh , exhibited at El Prado museum in Madrid. This 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 external 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 a chrysalis stage are fed by birds that carry cherries and strawberries in their beaks, 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 in the triptych.

"I imagined a dreamy and bizarre scent which convey eccentricity,lust and freedom. I wanted to give power to the fruity notes as a symbol of exoticism and aphrodisiac temptation. I wanted to capture the symbolism of this artwork. an olfactive illusion of the surreal."

- Christian Provenzano, the perfumer.
