Exotics are rare items that can be collected as part of the "Duchesses and Other Animals" mission. This is triggered by speaking to a colorful stranger called Algernon Wasp. He can be found inside a wrought-iron greenhouse in a backyard just north of Saint Denis, after you complete "The Gilded Cage" in Chapter 4.

After the cutscene where Algernon introduces himself, there are five stages available in sequence. For each of these, Algernon gives you a list of exotic items he would like you to retrieve for him.
