auçíts [ɔˈɕits] n. a wisp/soupçon/trace of a lingering scent (usually meant positively)

It could mean anything, from a woman leaving a room with a hint a rose behind her, a chicken cooking in sage from we know not where (well, of course, we do, but we can use this to describe something smelling good from elsewhere); such as applies to males, well, of course, men apply cologne (at least in the period we're describing), but it could also apply to male muskness (not BO), after a full game of tennis before you bathe before dinner. Perhaps I watch too much period drama; the scents would be brandy, tobacco smoke, and belched some sort of heavy sauce.
