AMAZING review.... Really awesome!!!

I am no fan of J. Herbin with the exception of Lie de The and Ambre de Birmanie.

Gorgeous ink.... Keep them coming.

Great review! Thank you for your time and effort.
Just one drawback: my ink wishlist became a little longer again.

Great review, very useful as I was planning to order a bottle of Lie de thé but your comment on ghosting, or see through, makes me wonder...
Cheers,

A lovely review of one of my favorites.  I love this stuff.  The color is beautiful, so vintage.  And it shades so fantastically!  I have found it to be well behaved - no worries there.

I love J. Herbin's Lie de The also! I was going through my inks last night and realized that I have 2 unopened bottles of the stuff, 1 opened pure bottle and 1 opened mix that I did. It was the first ink that I bought when I got fascinated with inks while living abroad in the UK, so I have a special history with it. <3

Regulateur,
My testing materials include what available to me locally and do not have fine quality papers. There should not be any bleeding in good branded papers.

If you're using something like Rhodia paper, you'll have no problem with even the wettest writers. I keep it in a super wet Conklin Crescent with a fine flexible nib, and it performs wonderfully even when flexed. I can also write on copy paper if I make only the lightest moves across paper (without flexing). All-in-all, a fantastic fountain pen ink, I was fortunate enough to get a 100mL bottle when they were still available in Europe, and had no problem whatsoever. Get some, you'll never regret it :D!

Thanks for the review!  Time to include this back to my rotation.  I forgot how good the ink is!  Thanks for refreshing my memory!

I, too, got quite a bit of ghosting (or showthrough/slight bleedthrough) with my Fine VP nib.  Granted, this was not the best paper, but the paper that's in my Boorum & Pease account book, which is not the worst either.

Thank you for the excellent review. It was well thought-out and covered the important issues inherent when one considers purchasing an ink for the first time. While I have used J. Herbin inks, I have not used this particular ink. I believe you have furnished enough pertinent information for me to make an informed decision as to purchase this ink or not. Thank you again.
