Not your boring black!

This is a nice stealthy black depending upon the type of nib you use with it. Looks like an innocent black for business use with some pens, but in others it has a slightly reddish look. The fun part of this ink is when others around you are trying to find the invisible roses that they think were delivered! April Fool's Day is just around the corner!

Smells so good

It was a pleasure to write with this. As you write the scent comes off the paper and just is present while you write. It's so nice to have the extra sensory activated while writing. I thought it was silly to have scented inks so I tried a samplewell now I'm going to buy a bottle because it's fun to smell a nice rose scent while writing and even though I'm a guy, I love the smell of roses and when other people smell it, they like it even thought they aren't sure what it is that they are smelling. lol so it was a big hit with everyone.

Writes beautifully, smells good!

This was the first De Atramentis scented ink I've ever purchased, and it writes beautifully, smells lovely, and is an excellent addition to my collection! :)

wonderful fragrance and writing

I was wholeheartedly expecting a very powerful rose scent but, this ink has the smell of fresh roses that may be nearby. I love it so much! The ink color itself also has almost an ombre into light grey to dark and gives my lettering a little extra pizzazz.

FAQ about Ink Samples

How do I fill my fountain pen from an ink sample vial? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It depends on the fountain pen's filling mechanism.

Check out our blog post on How to Fill a Fountain Pen from an Ink Sample Vial.

How much writing can I do with 2ml of ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It really depends on how big or small you write, and the nib size you’re using. We find that usually you can get 2 good fills for a typical converter with our Ink samples, or one good fill with a piston-filling pen. How much writing depends on you more than anything else, so we recommend experimenting with different nib sizes to find what works best for you. 

What is shading, sheening, or shimmering ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Shading - A common (and often desired) result of a fountain pen ink pooling in certain parts of a letter when writing, so that the color and saturation of the ink appears different within a single letter or word. This characteristic cannot be achieved with ballpoint or rollerball pens and is a very appealing aspect of fountain pen use for those particularly drawn to all the pretty ink colors.

Sheen - Characteristic of a fountain pen ink where when ink pools another color can be seen on top of the ink, especially when looked at in different light angles using certain paper types. There is no way to guarantee an ink will sheen, but using a larger nib on a pen will help obtain sheening results in your writing.

Shimmering - Fountain pen ink that has small particles of glitter mixed in.

Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes! Shimmering ink is a great way to add some flare to your writing. We have found that a larger nib will showcase more shimmering particles while writing, but you can use any nib size and shimmering ink. All the ink we sell is safe for use in fountain pens.

You can learn more in our blog: How to Write with Shimmering Ink.
