I am very happy with this ink. It matches the swatch on the site perfectly and looks great for my everyday writing and is a great alternative to using the more common Black or Dark Blue inks. I highly recommend.

I thought that I loved Eclat de Saphir, but I am absolutely enamored with this blue. In my Lamy Nexx xf it is the exact same shade as the swatch on the site, however, I could imagine that it would appear darker if used with a medium nib. This is the perfect "happy blue." I am extremely satisfied with the color.

This color is a little darker than I expected, but has beautiful shading. When used in a larger amount, the color is a deep blue, but when used thinly is an amazing shade of turquoise.

Also, this was my first time buying bottled ink, so I was pleased to discover that it came in a nice glass bottle with a groove in which to place the pen.

I had a small sample of this color and thought it might be difficult to pull into a converter with only 2mL but it cooperated very well. The color is a bright blue, but not uneasy on the eyes. It shades beautifully and looks great in fine to thicker nibs. Highly recommended.

Only reason I did not give a 5 because it is selective on paper. Bleu Pervenche shades very well in either fine or broad nibs. It pairs well with either Rhodia or Clairefontaine paper.
