I'm not exactly sure what exotic means, and I'm sure that there is good exotic and bad exotic, but when I open up a jar of goldenrod honey and the gentle aroma of goat pee* wafts my way, I usually blurt out something like "wow, that is exotic".** :-D
I really do like that smell now.
*Disclaimer:I've never actually had the privilege of sampling the aroma of goat pee, but in my imagination it smells very much like old, well used, seldom washed gym socks that have been urinated on (not that I sniff those very often or at all, for that matter).
**Exotic might not be the exact word that say in the situation, but it sounds better and is much more acceptable in mixed company.
(I know, it really isn't all that bad, but that would spoil my post, now wouldn't it?)
