Mesmeric is an adjective that means fascinating or irresistible.

Our word of the day comes from an 18th century Austrian physician named Franz Anton Mesmer. Mesmer was noted for his use hypnotic techniques. Mesmeric is a synonym of hypnotic, but it may also be used in a more subtle sense to mean ‘charming’ or ‘alluring.’ For example: Lydia’s mesmeric personality has played a big role in her success. Who doesn’t want to be in the presence of someone so charming and delightful?
