Wonderful Word Wednesday: Mawkish

It's Wonderful Word Wednesday again, and I have an old favorite here. :)
1.) characterized by sickly sentimentality; weakly emotional; maudlin.
2.) having a mildly sickening flavor; slightly nauseating.

Example Sentence: A mawkish scent drifted from the yellow blossoms growing on the black bark trees.

Have you seen or used this word before? What do you think of it?

If you liked this post, come back every Saturday for more writing advice, character interviews, book reviews and more! On Sundays I have Soundtrack Sundays where I post a new score piece, Tuesdays are Tea Tuesdays with tea reviews, Wednesdays I have Wonderful Word Wednesdays where I post a new vocabulary word, and Fridays are Fan Fridays where I post tags and other goodies. To help support my dream to be an author follow this blog, like me on Facebook, watch me on deviantART, and follow me on Pinterest and Twitter.
