Oh but actually one of those wonderful meanings that seems so poetic when rendered properly into English... The flavor of the idea! The fragrance, or a fragrance of meaning. If you do the etymology of each character you'll see. but that's not what most of you are here for I understand. If you stay at it you may find a beauty in the characters, particularly in the traditional characters, which these two are even though they are used in unsimplified form as simplified characters, which is found in no other writing system.
