J Herbin scented ink
These exquisite inks, lightly scented and presented in elegant semi-frosted 30 ml bottles, are perfect for fountain pens since they are naturally scented and do not contain pigments. There is a choice of colours/scents and they are made from floral water (hydrosols). The hydrosols used by J. Herbin come from Grasse, France, a Provencal town long associated with the perfume industry, and famous for its floral scents.
Fashioned with great care, scented inks are inspired by a tradition that began in Italy in the 19th century. J. Herbin and other manufacturers used to collect different scents from the perfume industry and add them to their inks.
J. Herbin is the oldest name in pen inks in the world. M. Herbin created “The Jewel of Inks” in his shop on the Rue des Fosses Saint-Germain in Paris in 1700. Herbin inks use only natural dyes which means they have a neutral pH.
Please note that the scent is primarily from the ink in the bottle and is not so strong on the paper. It will fade once you write with it.
