Did you actually mean garlicky or garlic?

Samuel Johnson's Dictionary

  1. GARLICKnoun

    Etymology: gar , Saxon, a lance, and leek, the leek that shoots up in blades. Skinner.

    Garlick is of an extremely strong, and to most people a disagreeable smell, and of an acrid and pungent taste. It is an extremely active and penetrating medicine, as may be proved by applying plaisters of garlick to the soles of the feet, which will in a very little time give a strong smell to the breath. Issues will smell strongly of garlick three or four hours after a person has eaten it; and given to fowls, it communicates its taste strongly to their flesh, and in some degree to their eggs. Bruised, and laid on any tender part of the skin, it corrodes it, and raises blisters. Some are very fond of it in food; and a little of it is not only agreeable this way, but assists digestion, and strengthens the stomach. Hill.

    Garlick has, of all our plants, the greatest strength, affords most nourishment, and supplies most spirits to those who eat little flesh. William Temple.

    ’Tis mortal sin an onion to devour;
    Each clove of garlick is a sacred pow’r:
    Religious nations sure, and blest abodes,
    Where ev’ry orchard is o’er-run with gods. Nahum Tate, Juven.
