enchanted

The adjective enchanted describes something that's under a spell, like the frog that lives in your backyard which, when you kiss it, turns into a prince.

The Latin root, incantare, means "cast a spell on."If you're so captivated by something, like stunning photographs in an art gallery, that you may as well be under a fairy tale spell, you're enchanted. Charming actors in old movies often say, "Enchanted," after being introduced to a beautiful woman. What they mean, essentially, is that they find her so fascinating they can't take their eyes off her.
