Here is my first hand written ink review!

I apologize for my poor writing (I ran out of my favorite flex dip nibs)

Enjoy!

How long does the scent last? I'd love to find an ink with scent-staying power until the recipient gets it...

The ink is waterproof IF you use a dip nib (this causes bleedthrough on cheap paper) laugh.gif Otherwise, it just washes away...

As for the scent, it lasts for about 2 days out in the open (Maybe longer if you keep it in an envelope).

Thanks for the review! I've just picked up my first bottle of J. Herbin ink, and plan to buy many more. Near the top of my list is the Bleu/Parfum Lavande.

I've been using shaving products from Nancy Boy with their signature lavender/peppermint/rosemary scent, and I also picked up a bar of lavender soap at the Stonewall Kitchen factory store on vacation in Maine this summer, and now I'm hooked on the smell of lavender. I was afraid it might be a little girly smelling, but I'd heard so many good things about Nancy Boy that I tried it anyway, and that led me to the pure scent of lavender in the Stonewall Kitchen soap. I find the scent somewhat spicy and flowery all at the same time.

When I saw that J. Herbin makes a blue ink with lavender scent, I knew I had to have some!

Oooh, that's promising! My only other experience with scented ink is the Montblanc Season's Greetings vanilla from this year, and the scent vanished before I put the Christmas cards in their envelopes. I'm just glad I realized it and didn't tell all my friends to sniff their cards, only to smell...nothing. headsmack.gif

Thanks for the review!

Update: Encre Bleue fades quite easily under light exposure. So I can't recommend it for normal use. However, this series (I don't know if thats the correct term) come in attractive bottles that would make a good inkwell conversion.

Looks very similar to Noodler's Luxury Blue, only perhaps a bit less saturated. I am not a fan of this color family; it's a "weak" blue that I find difficult to read as my eyes have trouble focusing on it. Your handwriting is nice though!

I suspect that scented inks are really for the amusement of the writer because I have yet to find one which sticks around either. I just don't think there is enough "stuff" there to make a real scent which humans can pick up AND it evaporates quite quickly so that there isn't that much in the way of molecules floating around for you to pick up with your nose. Great thought but I don't suspect it's a practical one.
