Caran d'Ache Chromatics INKredible Colors - Idyllic Blue (50ml)


 
Alternative Views:


For a bright blue with a regal twist, give Caran d'Ache Idyllic blue a try. The purple undertones of this intense ink give it a warm and balanced feel. Fans of sheen will enjoy the luminous red sheen that appears when this ink is paired with a full, wet nib. Handcrafted in Geneva, Switzerland, Caran d'Ache has had a reputation for creating high-quality writing supplies since 1915. In their new Chromatics line, Caran d'Ache turns their attention to highly intense colors. Idyllic Blue is no exception, with good saturation, a balanced flow in a variety of nibs, and easy cleanup.

Beautiful bottle, but the ink is just as good! July 30, 2014
Reviewer: Nadezhda Ivanova  
I admit I bought this ink only for the bottle, but I was very pleasantly surprised!
The bottle - apart from the very interesting shape of the bottle, it is a nice, sturdy and heavy bottle, and the cap is heavy and styrdy as well, appears to be made of metal. It comes in a very nice, thick hexagonal box, the whole thing is a beauty!
The ink - it is a very nice, middle-to-dark, solid, professional looking blue, not much shading but a consistent color, and I think this is preferable in some circumstances to shading ink. It has excellent behavior. It does not feather even on mega-cheap news-paper type paper, and has minimal bleed-through even on this. No bleed-through on Rhodia. It flows very well, and the pen glides on the paper. I deliberately tried it in a pen that is a bit scratchy, and therefore only used with Iroshizuku inks as they compensate for that. The pen worked almost as well as with an Iro ink.
All this makes it a perfect every day ink, if you are willing to pay the extra.

Pricey but oh so sweet. May 8, 2014
Reviewer: Pruitt Hall from Cana, VA United States  
My new daily go to ink for my Lamy 2000.  A dedicated Kon-Peki user, I wanted something darker.  Flows beautifully and exhibits more shading in a Lamy EF nib (admittedly a F by anyone else's standards) than any ink I've used previously.  Easy clean up.  Only downside is price but I love the ink so much, I really don't care.

As for the purchase, typical Goulet Pen quality...packaged beautifully, arrived safely.  Great ink from a great company!

Judging an Ink by its Bottle? May 6, 2014
Reviewer: Amit Y. from Ramat Hasharon, n/a Israel  
While there is nothing terribly disappointing about the new Idyllic Blue ink - there's nothing truly exciting about it, other than its fantastic packaging.
This is your garden variety blue, nothing to interesting, classic blue - nothing to write home about...

Lovely color March 19, 2014
Reviewer: dneal from APO, AE United States  
I took a gamble on this ink, since it is kind of pricey.  It paid off.  The sample on this site looks a little weak, but it's much nicer than it appears here.  Great vibrant color with some shading, perfect flow and quite manageable.  Not waterproof, but some water resistance.

Eye-popping blue! February 26, 2014
Reviewer: Debra  
In a fit of momentary insanity, I ordered a bottle (vs sample) the first day or two after this one became available. The sample was so gorgeous, I couldn't help myself. :)  To my utter surprise, I was blown away by the result: an eye-popping blue that flows like a dream onto any paper I have in front of me (TWSBI medium nib). So far, no smears. I wasn't in the market for a new blue ink, but I think I've found a new must. A true pleasure, both performance and color.
