WAKU

mado(u)

meaning: be confused

誘惑 == yuuwaku == (noun that can take する to act as a verb) temptation, allurement, lure
魅惑 == miwaku == (noun that can take する to act as a verb) attraction, fascination, lure, captivation, charm




Bottom radical is 'heart/feelings' (心). Top radical is a Non-General Use character meaning 'a certain', which here is acting phonetically to express 'doubt'. Henshall suggests taking top radical as 'halberd/land' (the left element), 'one' (一), and 'entrance' (口), and as a mnemonic: 'Confused feelings over lance at single entrance.'
