This is lovely. I will try to console myself with Yama Budo, which is darker and redder, I think.
Thanks for the review.

Yes, this one is brighter. I like Yama Budo also, L'Armant is pinkier and lighter, but look at the shading.... :-)

Just in case you search for it, it's called L'Amant. It translates to The Lover. There is no 'r' in there.

Probably thought it was "Talk Like a Pirate" Day....  :P 

This is an ink I keep looking at and going "OOOOH" and then not buying because the Bungubox inks are pricy here in the US.  Thanks for the review.  And, well, not....  :wallbash:

Thanks for a nice compact review of this sumptuous ink. It always looks good, whatever pen I use it in.

That's assuming I'd *want* Chanel.  Which I mostly don't (I'm very fussy about fragrances and kinda have a custom blend -- but I almost never use it because most fragrances trigger a migraine for my husband...).

But yeah, L'Amant is probably going on my "Dear AP Santa" letter, which I really need to write and get in the mail soon....

Looks very nice. I wonder how it compares to Lamy Dark Lilac or Pelikan Amethyst.

Has anyone ever seen them side to side?

Working on my reviews, but purples are on the end of the spectrum, so from me it will take sometime

 

But very shortly: Dark Lilac and amethyst are darker and more purple.

 

Till now I have not seen anything which is like L' Amant because of the "pinkinesh" but not too pink, shading and sheen

Thanks! Can' t wait to see your reviews.

 

Turmaline and Amethyst are among my favorite inks. L'Amant must be something in-between them.

Here's a quick comparison. Hope It helps.

Edit: the photo looked accurate on my Toshiba but is too light on this iPad. But at least the differences between the inks can be gauged.

Another great review, Jan. Been on the fence on this one for a long time because of the price but think I'm finally ready.
