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....
