The Little House Of The Marquis De Tremicour

Jean Françoise De Bastide

The Little House (novel)

1879


A sumptuous house designed entirely for seduction, this building presents an escalating series of spectacles each more extravagant and luxurious than the last. Every sense is assaulted in an unashamed bid for complete surrender on the part of the visitor.

The marquis had commissioned decorative paintings in the boudoir of this house from a famous artist known both for having eliminated the characteristic odours of oil paint and skillfully infusing said paint with the seductive scents of flowers which would slowly release scent from the walls, perfuming the room for years to come.
