Obviously this hinges on which of the texts you have the best grasp of, but personally I would choose Dracula. There are so many parallels that you can draw between the two.

You have the obvious gothic themes (there’s very little in gothic literature that can’t be linked back to decadence, be it in its most basic physical form- the architecture, or more complex- the motives governing your villain/antihero).
Then specific to DG/Dracula you’ve got eternal youth, (be it via painting or the undead) and decadence of spirit, literal wealth and decadence found in abundance in both DG and Dracula, and the standard Victorian themes of amoral behaviour and sexual promiscuity, ie. the desire for decadent lifestyles warring with the fear of societal repercussions.
