Two years ago, FPNer Shawndo, purchased a lot of samples including every blue ink Goulet's had to offer.

Alas, Shawndo ran out of free inky time.  I agreed to do these reviews. So here we are.

Amber, I love the colour. It looks a deep purple AND a deep brown on my screen... Which would you say? I see shading and it is lovely. Thank you for sharing!

It's right in between purple and brown and deep red.  It has shading and it's really pretty. The ink that it reminded me of was De Atramentis Saint Laurent, which I really liked.  Also, KWZI #81 is very similar until it turns near black.

I finally got a bottle of this last week and it is just great! I totally dig the brown-purple thing it has going on and it is surprisingly water resistant. It shades marvelously with nibs that you want it to shade with and is also decently saturated with those finer nibs that you might not want too much shading with. This is all around just an excellent ink and deserves far more attention than it gets!!

Hmmmm.  I missed this thread before now.  It would be interesting to see how this compares to De Atramentis Patchouli, a scented ink (which is an interesting color, but smelled AWFUL).

If you like brown-purple, also take a look at Sailor Kobe Suma Purple.  I would characterize DeA Johann Sebastian Bach as a purplish brown and Sailor Kobe Suma Purple as a brownish purple.

Thanks for the info. That Sailor does look delightful as well.

Bach is one of my absolute favorites. It performs wonderfully, but more than that it is always appropriate. Interesting for personal writing while also being subdued enough for pretty much any business situation. About the only time it wouldn’t work is if you absolutely must use blue. It is very much a “WTH is that?” Color but it could never be accused of blue.

Yet another Sarah.

I totally degree with your descriptions of the the performance and uniqueness of this ink. I love how the color kind of defies labeling; very unique but still conservative. I just finished another fill of it and it has climbed up my all-time favorites list. The water resistance is a huge bonus for me as well.
