English term or phrase: love potion
Greetings

The sentence:
“When he wasn't looking, she slipped a love potion into his drink.”

For info on love potion, please see the following page:
http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Love_Potion

A love potion is something magical that most rational people do not believe exists, and is not to be confused with an aphrodisiac.

Best wishes, and many thanks,
