Unlike some of the other De Atramentis inks that I have tried with more muted scents, the Blackberry has an abundant nose of fresh blackberry. The color is spot on to the fruit's juice, even as the ink leans at the edges of lines. I am a fan, and will enjoy having this ink in my regular rotation.

I Like Purple Inks
July 17, 2012
from Ogden Ut
Caran d'Ache Storm was the color that convinced me to get involved with fountain pens. For whatever reason I really like that color. I have purchased Diamine Damson as well as storm and like both of them. This ink, to me, is very similar to Storm leaning to the darker. This comparison was done in my TWSBI 540 with a 1.1 stub. It puts down a fair amount of ink. Don't buy it expecting Storm, or Damson but something in between. The scent is nice but you may be called upon for random drug screenings quite more frequently than random if you are observed sniffing your pen multiple times throughout the day.
