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.

Verified Purchase
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.

Verified Purchase
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.

Verified Purchase
This blue is so vibrant and lovely, it looks especially gorgeous in a fine nib fountain pen, as many other reviewers have already stated. It might be just me, but it dries into a much lighter blue, which is fantastic since I wanted a lighter blue ink.

Despite using this ink...
Despite using this ink for several months, I'm not impressed with the color. When it's wet, the blue is attractive but as it dries, it fades to a dim blue. It looks like a color faded by the sun and the lack of contrast with the white paper makes it unpleasant to read with my old eyes. I've used a Lamy and an Edison pen while writing on regular copy paper and in a Miquelrius notebook. The results are the faded same.
