Not a green for me (although it looks nice coming out of that flex nib you've got there); and I'm glad to know it ISN'T one of the scented inks -- I love Red Roses, but the other scented inks I've tried? Not so much.... And annoyingly, some of their best looking greens don't seem to have an unscented counterpart.

But thanks for the review. I'm sure it's going to be *someone's* "go to" green -- just not mine....

I've been curious about the Herbs de Provence one -- but I dislike the base color (Petrol).

Overall, the scented inks are hit or miss, in my experience. Lavender (at least as a sample) didn't smell like much of anything -- and otherwise was a really wet dark blue; I was disappointed, because I love the smell of lavender. Patchouli (another one that I think does not come in an unscented version) was awful -- it smelled like a musty basement and not remotely like patchouli, although the color was interesting. The sample I had of Black Roses? Well, if you put your nose right up to the open vial you could smell it a little bit (and was an uninteresting shading black ink otherwise). But Red Roses? It's glorious. And a great color, leaning from magenta pink to red violet, depending on the pen/nib.

Using Google it also looks a little bit like Noodler's Ottoman Rose, please tell me they are almost the same...

Dunno. I have a sample of Ottoman Rose but haven't tried it yet....

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
