English Synonyms and Antonyms
The definition of beauty, "perfection of form," is a good key to the meaning of beautiful, if we understand "form" in its widest sense. There must also be harmony and unity, and in human beings spiritual loveliness, to constitute an object or a person really beautiful. Thus, we speak of a beautiful landscape, a beautiful poem. But beautiful implies also, in concrete objects, softness of outline and delicacy of mold; it is opposed to all that is hard and rugged, hence we say a beautiful woman, but not a beautiful man. Beautiful has the further limit of not transcending our powers of appreciation. Pretty expresses in a far less degree that which is pleasing to a refined taste in objects comparatively small, slight, and dainty; as, a pretty bonnet; a pretty girl. That is handsome which is not only superficially pleasing, but well and harmoniously proportioned, with usually the added idea that it is made so by art, breeding, or training; as, a handsome horse; a handsome house. Handsome is a term far inferior to beautiful; we may even say a handsome villain. Fair denotes what is bright, smooth, clear, and without blemish; as, a fair face. The word applies wholly to what is superficial; we can say "fair, yet false." In a specific sense, fair has the sense of blond, as opposed to dark or brunette. One who possesses vivacity, wit, good nature, or other pleasing qualities may be attractive without beauty. Comely denotes an aspect that is smooth, genial, and wholesome, with a certain fulness of contour and pleasing symmetry, tho falling short of the beautiful; as, a comely matron. That is picturesque which would make a striking picture.
Beautiful to the eye; beautiful in appearance, in spirit; "beautiful for situation," Ps. xlviii, 2; beautiful of aspect, of its kind.

How to use exquisite in a sentence?
The most favorite perfume, for gentlemen and ladies alike, has been the "New Car Perfume" by far. Interestingly this new-car-like-smell is nothing but the floating volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in your new car, which aren't good at all for either the humans or the environment. I often think that the best fragrance must be Petrichor, the exquisite earthy smell that often permeates in the air, right after the first intimate union of fresh and purest rain drops with hot and awaiting thirsty ground. No fragrance can ever match the attractive and seductive scent of Petrichor, in my view.
There is something exquisite about the combination of coffee's aroma and novel. It satiates mind, body and soul all at once.

Having just been in Italy, I fell in love with the marble streets and sidewalks of Verona, millions of footsteps pound and torture that stone daily, but the abuse creates the exquisite finish.
Gratitude is the most exquisite form of courtesy.
