Love Potion No. 9

Love Potion No. 9 is an aphrodisiac of undeniable potency, and great caution is urged in its use. It is a deep black in colour and smells not unlike turpentine.

As far as can be told, it is sold only by Madame Rue, a gypsy reader of palms and maker of potions who, as of 1959, lived at a place on the corner of Vine St and 34th St (now Jefferson Boulevard) in Los Angeles.

It induces feelings of extreme amorousness in those who imbibe it, although how long these last and the appropriate dosage are details lost in the mists of time. Lost with them, apparently, are Love Potions No. 1 through 8, whose existence can be assumed from this Potion’s number.
