De Atramentis Blackcurrant (35ml Bottled Ink) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty color, scent nothing special The color is a deep, rich purple. If you are familiar with Diamine Grape, De Atramentis Blackcurrant is a very similar color, but it is a bit lighter with slightly more of a reddish tone to it. Many have remarked that the smell is reminiscent of cough syrup, and I have to agree. I do find it to be a nicer scent than the typical chemical smell of inks though. This ink writes EXTREMELY wet, and while this can actually be somewhat pleasant on coated papers like Rhodia and Clairefontaine (where it glides across the paper wonderfully smoothly), it is a pain if you are ever forced to use cheap copy or notebook paper, on which it bleeds horribly. Surprisingly, I did not find it to feather that much on cheap paper despite how wet it writes and how much it tends to bleed through the paper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Color. Strange Smell I really like this shade of purple. It's dark enough to be used, instead of saved on a shelf and pulled out just to be played with. Flows well. Writes smoothly. The scent though does not smell anything like blackcurrant. It smells more like perfume. So don't expect fruity jam smells with the ink. It's subtle and not objectionable smell. But not what you'd expect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deep Purple To me the ink from the bottle smells like cough syrup. It's a nice deep purple and the smell improves on paper. I just can't put my nose up to the bottle without thinking of taking my temperature heh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Color and Scent! Wanted a lovely purple with a great scent, and that's what this is. A dark shade of purple suitable for everyday writing, and the scent is rich and true. It actually makes me hungry when I use it ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty much my new favorite I bought this sample just to try out a scented ink. It smells to me like cheap grape juice. I really like the smell, and it vanishes as soon as the ink dries. This color is gorgeous, too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from These inks are awful They bleed worse than any I've used. Try them only in the driest of pens.
