The J. Herbin 1670 Anniversary Ink, first introduced in 2010 with the color Rouge Hematite, commemorates J. Herbin's 340th anniversary. Bleu Ocean is the second color in this collection, and recalls the sea voyages of J. Herbin. He made many journeys to India and brought special wax formulas back to Paris, leading to his shop's success as a reputable sealing wax manufacturer that served Louis XIV and gained popularity throughout France. The wax seals on the cap and front of the bottle remind us of this rich history.

This is a gorgeous, deep blue with a teeny hint of indigo in it. Very saturated, very wet. It does NOT have a sheen like the Rouge Hematite but it still quite lovely - I don't regret getting a bottle at all :)

A very smooth, fluid ink with very little shading, leaning a bit towards purple tones. Not a highly saturated ink, and is easy to clean out of pens. This is a very pleasing blue, and the packaging is lovely.

Not NEARLY as good of an ink overall as Rouge Hematite. It's certainly a very deep blue—if not a full-on blue/violet—but has no sheen. It's just a very saturated, dark dark blue; nothing you can't get from Diamine for half the price. Just can't help feeling that I paid for the bottle and packaging rather than the ink (just like a feel every time I buy a bottle of Iroshizuku…)

Verified Purchase
The pictures just don't show how beautiful the bottle is. I ordered two of these, and two of the rouge hematite (one of each for me, one of each as a gift). I am sad to say, however, that BOTH of my bleu ocean inks had leaks in the box, yet I couldn't locate where it was coming from (the bottle wasn't wet, there were no cracks, the seal was intact, strange...). Since I couldn't actually find a leak, I can't dock a star. It's beautiful, and I got a sneak peak of the color of the ink in-box before using I guess!
The color is hard to describe, it is very unique. It is so different than other blue inks, the same goes with J. Herbin's forget-me-not blue (in the heart-shaped bottle). I think each individual penstroke offers something different.
