This is exactly the same shade as De Atramentis Aubergine, just with a different label. The color is a nice, dark, opaque, warm purple. I use it as a black substitute, because I hate black, and it serves that purpose perfectly. The ink behaves very well, is ideal for fine nibs.

...you'll love this ink. I was looking for a rich, well-behaved dark purple ink and this fits the bill plus it is cool to have a bottle with Giacomo Puccini's image on it. Can you tell I'm a fan of Puccini?
