Adjective. Nice smelling. Especially applies to a freshly cleaned calabash prepared with lneriyoi or lorien. Also applies to any sweet-smelling wood, such as sandalwood. Locally, nataraquoi (need botanical name) leaves—from a small tree or shrub that looks like ginger (check this fact) that grows in the mountains, like the Mathews Range—are added to tea, and this makes the tea smell nice. Applies also to the various scents and perfumes used by the murran; and that girls add to their beads. The opposite of kong’u.
