  • Love and infatuation are both intense emotions that one feels for another person. These feelings are most often confused for each other by many people. But the two feelings differ in their actuality of love, intensity, and final outcome.
  • TAGA-AMO can be rubbed on the skin of the admired or can also be in the form of a drinkable potion.
