Frangipani is my favorite out of those. I don't like bootylicious, or the licious constructions generally.

My favorite word is kitty. Then cupcake, racecar, kerfuffle, fluffy, plump, obsession, delectable, confection, burrito, turtle...

Mmm, confection. Yum, delectable. Plump is great, too. Plump. Plump. Plump! Plump is really great, actually...
