ORIGIN
late Middle English (in the sense ‘fragrance, aroma’): from Old French flaor, perhaps based on a blend of Latin flatus ‘blowing’ and foetor ‘stench’ ; the -v- appears to have been introduced in Middle English by association with savour. flavour (sense 1of the noun) dates from the late 17th century.
