This is great, now I can stop wasting my precious Noodler's by trying to make my own.

notworthy1.gif THANK YOU KOOKYCHICK for expressing your desire / dream / necessity and

THANK YOU NATHAN clap1.gif for listening and spending the time to fulfill said dream - you are the maestro of inks.

I can't wait to start loading up some pens with this........Scott cloud9.gif

AArrrgghhh! Now it shows up headsmack.gif ! I hope this ink is around for a while because I'm sort of not buying anymore pens/inks for the rest of this year. If I win the LOTTO I'll grab some right away, however. It looks like something I'd really use, too - even though it's pretty expensive to my wallet.

I would keep checking the following two sites over the next few days/weeks. I'm not holding my breath because it usually takes us pour souls in the UK forever to get anything, but I can always hope TWD keeps me happy? (As it always does.)

Thanks Calbei,
I've already emailed TWD :-)

I have also spoken to Tom at Niche re. Noodlers inks before (not this ink in particular) and they are a bit reluctant to order inks as they have to order boxes of 44 bottles each time...

Cheers

Wow. That sounds like a fantastic Noodler's find, too! I might have to see about getting a bottle.

I preordered 3 bottles of La Reine Mauve from Todd at ISellPens. I might have it within a week to 10 days, depending on when Todd gets his order and the amount available overall from Nathan. The rush is on to see who will pop up the first review (though I think that honor should go to kookychick). biggrin.gif


That's really sweet of you, kiavonne! biggrin.gif But I don't want to stifle anyone's creative urges (and I'll be in the middle of some massive exams when the ink arrives), so please, everyone should feel free to review it whenever they get it! thumbup.gif

Luxury Brands isn't a retailer.

I simply emailed Pendemonium to let me know when they got it.

O sorry I thought Luxury Brands was a retailer. Whenever I googled "noodlers" their name came up. So sorry for the confusion--my confusion that is

Have bought a few bottles from Greenman before. Very reputable and quite rapid delivery. Good to know he has it.

Don't get too concerned, of the first batch buyers, I'll bet some won't like the ink. I'll bet there will be some on the open market soon!

Before I spend that much on some ink, I'll wait for reviews so others can tell me what they think of the ink.

I think you're confused. Rachmaninov is a pink ink from the Russian series (now available through Swisher Pens).

The new purple that this thread is about is called "La Reine Mauve".

Just to be clear, Rachmaninov isn't just pink, it's PINK.

If you want to purchase from them (no affiliation, etc.), you can pre-order, so you won't have to try and catch an order on any particular date. You can either "purchase" another ink of the same price and put in the comments that you want La Reine Mauve instead (and you might want to shoot them an email as a backup just in case), or you can PayPal them the proper amount with your order in the comments. Then they'll send your order out whenever they get it in next.

Hope everyone enjoys this ink! I can't wait to receive mine! biggrin.gif
