    agreeable
    alluring
    appealing
    attractive
    bewitching
    captivating
    charming
    delicious
    delightful
    delightsome
    enchanting
    engaging
    enticing
    entrancing
    fascinating

    ravishing
    taking
    adorable
    winning
    winsome

    Thanks.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    agreeable

    appealing
    attractive
    bewitching
    captivating
    charming
    delicious
    delightful
    delightsome This word was first used in the 15th Century and is related to delightful. I would classify it as archaic.
    enchanting
    engaging
    enticing
    entrancing
    fascinating
    lovely
    pleasing
    ravishing
    taking - taken
    adorable
    winning
    winsome

    Thanks.

    First of all thank you.

    Secondly, my "it" refered to information that there were such words. I'll say "them" next time.
