Purkaif- Delightful
sandal si mehkti hoi pur-kaif hawa ka
jhonka koi takraye to lagta hai ke tum ho

I feel your presence when the delightful breeze wafts past entailed with the hint of sandal wood fragrance.

This is a couplet by renowned poet Jan Nisar Akhtar and i have strange fondness of this word purkaif.

When you dissect this word pur in purkaif is a prefix.

pur = full, kaif= delight.

There are many such words that take the prefix pur such as purluft (enjoyable, tasty)
