je-ne-sais-quoi

I've heard this many times and have a sense of the meaning, but would you please interpret it?  Madam

When the French say: "Il y a un certain je-ne-sais-quoi ..." they mean this:

- literally: There is a certain I don't know what ...
- figuratively: There's something I can't explain, something good, something special but I can't put my finger on it.

So "Je ne sais quoi" means "I don't know what".

Who were you thinking of? LOL I bet it's JT!

Certainly!  I knew it was something favorable but not much more than that.
