*** AMORTENTIA – CANDLE OF THE MONTH – FEBRUARY 2017 ***
“Amortentia is the most powerful love potion in the world. It is distinctive for its mother-of-pearl sheen, and steam rises from the potion in spirals. Amortentia smells different to each person, according to what attracts them.” Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
A must for all Harry Potter fans, and fans of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince which is where we first learn of the world’s strongest love potion – Amortentia. Here is our carefully blended version of Amortentia in candle form. Will this be enough to win your true love’s heart?
“Powerful infatuations can be induced by the skilful potioneer, but never yet has anyone managed to create the truly unbreakable, eternal, unconditional attachment that alone can be called Love.”
—Hector Dagworth-Granger regarding love potions
I first read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in 2000 and have read the series several times since then. It also featured in our Book Group, where we worked our way through the whole series. I also own and love all the movies too, so I guess that makes me a bit of a fan lol.
Is for one candle only. Any other items or props in the photo are not included and are shown for decorative purposes only.
According to Hermione, Amortentia smells like “freshly mown grass, new parchment, spearmint toothpaste, and Ron Weasley’s hair”
According to Harry Potter, Amortentia smells like “treacle tart, a broomstick handle, and Ginny Weasley’s hair.
We went with the Harry Potter version – treacle tart – because who doesn’t love the smell of treacle tart!
