Des Esseintes is a neurasthenic aristocrat who has turned his back on the vulgarity of modern life and retreated to an isolated country villa, where he pursues his obsessions with exotic flowers, rare gems and complex perfumes. The original handbook of decadence, this novel enjoys a cult following.
