Sorry for the lacking comparison with Montblanc Lavender Purple. We just did a direct comparison which 

we find gives a very good impression. The Psychedelic Purple is quite different from the Lavender Purple.

And to us, having grey, cold, rainy and windy weather quite uplifting. We are starting to like it a lot.

Thank you very much for that. Quite a difference.

Thanks for the comparison.  The Beatles Psychedelic is quite vibrant in comparison to the Lavender Purple, which already has plenty of pop.  Will definitely be getting some when it hits the boutiques, hopefully soon.

I might be able to resist this particular ink. I have more purples than I regularly use. I will see how long I hold out without buying it.  :D

Looks like a mix of Pelikan's 4001 Violet (as shown above, thanks) and Waterman's Purple.

Just arrived home from Berlin, and I bought a bottle of Beatles purple. :) Sure I don't need another bottle of purple....

Of course I need another bottle of purple ink...only got 8 and need 15.

With 15 I could actually have enough purple to use some. ;)


Everyone says poor Mozart dead at only 36. None say poor Mendelson, dead at only 38. His family only allowed him to start at 20, but before, musicians use to come to the Mendelson garden to steal the music of Mendelson and his sister. A good artist also, can still buy prints of his famous Scottish drawings in Scotland.

Got 2 bottles of this ink today.
I am very pleased with how vibrant the color is,
it really does pop out :)

This ink will definitely be the color for my Holiday greetings card.

Cheers!

I'm told it's the same ink they use in their rollerballs.

I haven't seen any sheen images.  There is a lot of gold fleck in the mix!

I just checked MBs site and they have rollerball refills with the Beatles ink so it would surprise me if they used the same ink in their standard purple rollerball refill.

 

It looks like they have the last few SE inks in rollerball refills (Beatles, Exupery, Lucky Organge, Unicef), along with with all the standard colors. It's been a long time since I've used a rollerball but I don't remember having that many options (which is how I ended up getting into fountain pens).
