Percy finds it in the attic of the Big House while looking for the Oracle. Percy was surprised that Annabeth actually kept the scarf. Percy then thinks back to time when they went on the love ride at Waterland. She labelled it, saying that it was found by him and Annabeth, at Waterland, Denver.
The scarf shimmers pink, and it has an indescribable perfume, like rose or mountain laurel.
- The scarf obviously has magical properties, making Percy and any other person dreamy, sleepy, and wanting to rub it against their cheeks. This scarf has the power to make people fall in love. That's the reason why Annabeth took it away from Percy so quickly, knowing that the scarf could enchant him.
- In mythology, Aphrodite, instead of a scarf, possesses a girdle that makes everyone who she wants, fall in love with her. This is how she seduced Ares.
