AMORTENTIA: Known as the most powerful love potion in existence, Amortentia does not, in fact, cause the drinker to fall in love. Rather, the potions causes an extremely powerful infatuation and obsession. A potion that has induced true, unadulterated love has never been discovered, and it is widely accepted that no potion or spell will ever be able to replicate this.Amortentia gives off a different aroma to everyone who smells it, replicating the smells of which said person finds most attractive. For example, if one is fond of the smell of Pumpkin Pasties, lavender or old books, Amortentia would certainly smell like those things to them. The effects of Amortentia are nearly instantaneous and the person affected will become immediately obsessed and infatuated with the “object of their affections”. Those who are given the Amortentia potion often appear pale and sickly, and the potion must be administered frequently in order to keep up the illusion of false love. The effects of Amortentia have been compared (in the loosest of ways) to those of the Imperius Curse, in the sense that the victim has no free will and it at the total mercy of the witch or wizard who has administered it– that is, at least until the potion wears off.It has been advised by the Ministry of Magic that no witch or wizard shall administer the Amortentia potion to another, for it is a form of cruel and unusual punishment and the facade of love will never really truly fulfil one’s real desires.

lest you become a monster
and if you gaze into the abyss,
the abyss gazes into you.
