    Word discovery: Piquant

    dictionary.com puts in a variety definitions

    1. agreeably pungent or sharp in taste or flavor; pleasantly biting or tart: a piquant aspic.
    2. agreeably stimulating, interesting, or attractive: a piquant glance.
    3. of an interestingly provocative or lively character: a piquant wit.
    4. Archaic. sharp or stinging, esp. to the feelings.

    But the meaning is clear - simply too sharp or prominent to be ignored.
