What is the source where it says that Hermione smelled toothpaste and Ron's hair? In the book it cuts off after she says fresh cut grass and new parchment, that she stopped there looking all embarrassed. --BachLynn23 22:24, July 22, 2010 (UTC)
- In the book she hesitates, and then stops embarrassed. JKR said in an interview, that the third thing she was thinking of was the smell of Ron's hair. The toothpaste comes from the Sixth movie and since the book doesn't contradict it, it is also canon. --JKoch(Owl Me!) 22:42, July 22, 2010 (UTC)
Something within this topic doesn’t really add up for me. If Armortentia causes a “powerful infatuation or obsession”, but the drinker smells what he/she really desires or likes … shouldn’t that mean that Armortentia only kind of amplifies already existing feelings? So that, in the end, if someone drank Armortentia, he or she would only be more obsessed with the person they already have feelings for?
I mean, couldn’t that be kind of a reason why it is called the most powerful Love Potion? Because it doesn’t create new/false feelings but only shows or amplifies already existing ones?
