The fountain pen experience is much more than simply putting a pen to paper. The right pen, the right paper, the right ink and the right environment can all combine to create an incredibly enjoyable and uplifting experience.
 
Sometimes the unpleasant smell of some fountain pen inks can detract from this experience so we've created a range of scented inks to add a new dimension to the fountain pen experience.
 
We've chosen a selection of uniquely Australian scents and tested them thoroughly to ensure the scents do not interfere with the free flowing and well behaved characteristics that Blackstone inks are famous for.
 
These scents are designed to enhance the writing experience and provide a subtle but noticeably pleasant fragrance when the bottle is opened and when writing.

Australian Bush - Ink Colour: Green

The classic aroma of the Australian Bush, a crisp and vibrant blend of Australian Native Eucalyptus, Kunzea, Lemon Myrtle, Rosalina and Nerolina. This is what you can smell when you walk out into the bush after rain.

Blue Cypress - Ink Colour: Green/Blue

Callitris intratropica

Common Name: Cypress Pine
A sweet, earthy, woody smell reminiscent of herbs and balsam. The Blue Cypress is mainly found in the Northern Territory and North Queensland, can live for over 200 years and grow to 45m. It has highly fragrant wood, bark and leaves all of which are used to extract the scent.

 

Kunzea - Ink colur: Red

Kunzea ambigua
Common Name: Tick Bush, White Cloud, Duncane Kunzea
A mild eucalyptus and myrtle smell with hints of pine and herbs. Mainly found in cool coastal areas of Australia, Kunzea is a tall shrub with white, pink or red flowers. Kunzea was given the common name Tick Bush because native animals are often found sleeping underneath the plants to get rid of ticks and other parasites.

 

Blue Gum - Ink Colour Blue/Green

Eucalyptus Globulus
Common Name: Tasmanian Blue Gum
A very pleasant, mild and spicy eucalyptus smell. The Blue Gum is a massive gum tree that can grow up to 100m. It is found mainly in Tasmania and Southern Victoria and is the floral emblem of Tasmania. New leaves are covered with a blue/grey waxy bloom which gives it it's common name.

Brown Boronia - Ink Colour: Brown

Boronia megastigma
Common Name: Heaven Scent
The Brown Boronia has a wonderful, lemon scented aroma which is not surprising considering they belong to the same plant family as citrus. Regarded as a serious contender for the title of ‘World’s Best Perfumed Plant’ by Don Burke, Brown Boronia is an evergreen, Australian native plant with flowers ranging in colour from yellow to dark brown.


Wild Orange - Ink Colour: Orange

Capparis mitchellii

Common Name: Wild Orange or Native Orange

The wild orange has a sweet, fresh, orange scent but is not related to oranges or citrus, nor to the Wild Orange (Osange Orange) of the USA. It is actually a member of the Caper family. The Wild Ornage is widely distributed throught Australia and is a well known 'Bush Tucker' food. It starts life as a rambling vine and grows into a tree up to 6m in height.

I don't care WHAT some of these smell like, the colors are so great I can hold my nose if I have to!

 

I will be very excited to try these inks; thank you for making them & sharing a preview with us.  It helped me believe there is a good reason for me to finish gathering my tax preparation together for the Accountant.  IF I get it finished I can look forward to MAY!

I have posted a review of Australian Bush here.

Jamerelbe's is here.

 

It is a nice, rich, wettish, well-behaved ink.

These inks have 'winner' stamped  right across them. Gorgeous. I'm especially attracted to the Blue Cypress and Blue Gum.  I'll definitely be giving them a try.
