[Vocabulary] 향긋하다

향긋하다 (hyang-geu-ta-da) – aromatic, sweet

There isn’t much special about this word but I learned about this while reading a Korean novel and just thought it would be nice to have another word to describe scents.

The usual words you would use to describe a pleasant scent would be 냄새가 좋다 or 향기가 좋다.
