For me it has to be insouciant. Such a wonderful sound and mouth feel plus the definition just makes it that much sweeter:

insouciant

[in-soo-see-uh nt; French an-soo-syahn]
adjective
1.
free from concern, worry, or anxiety; carefree; nonchalant.
Origin of insouciant
1820-1830
1820-30; < French, equivalent to in- in-3+ souciant present participle ofsoucier to worry < Vulgar Latin *sollicītāre, for Latin sollicitāre to disturb.
