How Many Of You Use Scented Inks?

Recommended Posts

Be aware the addition of the scent often makes otherwise "safe" inks such as Herbin prone to staining. The Lavender & Green Apple both stained converters.

DeAtramentis cherry- I grade papers with it. My students love it.

I LOVE the idea of scented ink, and have a few, but- alas, as others have stated, the scent doesn't last long at all. Usually I can smell it only when I am filling the pen. Ah, well... Making my own scented ink is probably the way to go, I can use it only with my glass pen....

I like DeAtramentis lavender scented ink. The color is nice and the scent is very pleasant (and of course relaxing). And like everyone else's experience, the scent is very temporary and only enjoyed by the writer. But then the same can be said for the pen :-)

 

I love my Lavender ink. Overall, the DeA inks are great performers for me, though others complain about feathering. The Orchid, Rose and Plum are wonderful smells too.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

I don't usually use scented inks.... though I have been known to spritz the paper with perfume. I saw it done by Frenchy in the movie Grease and assumed that was how you did it.

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
