:D :D :D

You are totally right!! Where did that R come from!!! :D :D :D

 

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:

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....

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.

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

Has anyone ever seen them side to side?

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.

It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

      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..
    • A Smug Dill
      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
