hp.png Amortentia Mind

The strongest love potion in existence, Amortentia is considered to be both powerful and dangerous. While it is impossible to manufacture actual love, one must not underestimate the deep infatuation created by this potion. Its effect is almost instantaneous; and those under its spell will harbor an obsession for the administering party. The unfortunate drinker will also exhibit symptoms which include the following: A sickly pallor, an overly excitable nature, and dangerous emotional instability toward others. The illusion of love will last as long as the potion is administered at regular intervals. Once the effects wear off, the drinker regains free will.
When brewed correctly, Amortentia has a distinct mother-of-pearl sheen, and steam rises from it in characteristic spirals.

Another singular characteristic of this potion is its adaptive scent, which will alter to appeal to the preferences of whomever inhales the aroma.
