氣質 (pronounciation in Mandarin Chinese: qi zhi) - A Chinese term which has no English equivalent, and is difficult to be translated.

Some dictionaries translate it as “temperament”, “disposition”, “mettle” or “schesis”, but I think none of them is precise enough. 氣質 is an abstract, intangible quality a person carries. When we say a lady has a good 氣質, instead of just “beautiful” or “hot” which are relatively shallow, it means she has a “sense” or “aura” of elegance.

An example from the western world is Sophie Marceau.
