The noun hedonist is an individual who is a pleasure-seeker, devoted into trying to get as much pleasure out of life.

Synonyms are sybarite, decadent, sensualist, or voluptuary.

The word origins from the Old French (1200) rancor meaning “bitterness, resentment, grief, affliction” borrowed from Late Latin rancorem (nominative rancor) meaning “rancidness, a stinking smell” (Palladius). It also means “to stink” deriving out of Latin rancere.
