This is the first other-than-black ink that I use, and it's among the first J. Herbin's ink that I own, too. Based on that, the 5 star rating may seem overrated, but I'm so happy with it, so there.

I call this a happy hue, which makes me want to write all day long, with which I want to record all my sweet, happy memories. I had a hard time deciding between this one and Rouge Bourgogne, and I finally settled for this as it leans more towards magenta - which is one of my favourite hues.

It flows well from my Lamy AL Star, which is already a smooth writer (M nib). Both qualities combined simply make writing by hand a truly joyful experience.

Write notes with this and those notes won't be ignored nor forgotten. Trust me...it is rare to find an ink which grabs the eyes and attention so quickly, but this one does and isn't limited to season nor time. It works well on many colors of paper, but on bright white your writing nearly leaps off the page.

Lovely colored ink. Almost like a pure magenta. A very wet ink.
