The Color: A very pretty purple, wine color.

On Paper: Wet, saturated and consistent.

Consistency: As previously stated, Larmes de Cassis is saturated and consistent.  It flows well.

Overall: A great ink in a pretty, unique color.  I really don’t use this one as often as I would like, as I tend to stick with certain inks in certain pens.  I guess this means I need a new pen!  The photos below show the ink as written with a J. Herbin glass dip pen and with an XF nib.

Purchasing and Pricing: A 30mL bottle runs between $7-10 depending on the retailer and is available at most online retailers catering to fountain pen and ink users.
