At this point you may ponder, “ink is ink, what is so fascinated about it?” Just like any other objects, there are stories behind all ink, especially the ones that follow time-tested formula. Using ink just gives a piece of writing more depth and more thought.
This piece is the second part to J. Herbin Scented Ink. At first I cannot believe how rosy the scent is. For some reason, most rose scented products do not resemble how a real rose would smell like. While writing I would think I was sitting at a rose garden, appreciating the fragrance instead of writing.
One major difference between this particular review versus the two previous ones is the pen. I used fountain pens for Sapphire blue and Apple green, but I use a glass dipping pen for this one. Glass pen not only looks elegant, but it is also easy to use after several trial and error. It is convenient in the respect that one can test several bottles of ink without flushing out ink and wait for the barrel and converter to be dry. Instead, one only needs to rinse it with water, pat it dry, and it is ready to go. The nib itself has spirals that supposed to hold ink, so with practice it is possible to write several sentences with one dip. I often associate writing with a dip pen with leisure because you really need to slow down on your writing speed, other wise you will lose control of your lettering. If you look close enough, you can see several spots where I hesitate and the form of the alphabets look different from other ones. Writing with glass dipping pen allows one to maximize the process of lettering!
