Bought these inks for a quick and easy way to force myself to try colors other than black, blue and blue-black >_< ... as it so happens, these inks come in cutesy little bottles that close nice and tight, and happen to write rather nicely in the quick test with a Zebra G-Nib that I did. The colors are nice and bright/vibrant and the scents are spot on... or so my mother, who loves/grows flowers, confirmed since a flower is pretty much a flower to me. I can attest that the apple and the orange are nice and fruity. The colors seem to vary in their water resistance as well. I was particularly impressed that you could not only smell the scents while writing, but you could smell them from a foot or two away even about half an hour after drying on the page! I can imagine someone taking notes would freshen a classroom with this stuff. All in all this is a great deal if you can't seem to break into different colors, and don't want to commit to a larger vial of a single color. Of course they would also make a fantastic gift for anyone who is into scrap-booking or making greeting cards, etc. I only took a point away because the little ink bottles are not individually labeled, so just grab out some paper and write up labels for them as you test them out and tape the sniffable strips to the vials.

I purchased this set to use with my fountain pen collection and find that certain pens flow better with this ink then others. The scents are light but my favorite is the lavender blue the rest seem overly soft and ink colors are pale but pretty.

I recommend using Pilot Metropolitan fountain pen with this ink! Best Fountain pen & ink combination I have ever found.

The scents are indeed very strong, but only while in the bottle. When used in a pen the color comes out very nicely, and they write smoothly, but the scent doesn't carry with it.

The other reviewer noted that these could be smelled from several feet away? Not in my case, even in the bottles.

They smell great, however, and the colors are interesting.

It may be worth noting that my set came opened with most of the colors having spilled all over suggesting that these had been opened at some point. Perhaps that's the reason for the lack of strong odor?

These inks are very good in color (they aren't watery or light). My favorite is the rose-scented ink, it smells just like a rose! The smell is definitely stronger in the bottle, but isn't every scented item this way? I tested them all out using a glass pen, and the scents lingered for about a week. They obviously became less robust towards the end of the week, but they lasted better than I thought! They would be perfect to use to write a letter to someone. I feel confident that the scent would stay around long enough for the recipient to get a whiff!

The inks itself are nice, although they do stain the converter (judging by the Platinum converter). The scent, however, is too strong and, frankly, plain horrible. It reminded me strongly of cheap soap. It's also difficult to wash off the pen, it still smells like the violet ink after being thoroughly washed and filled with different ink. A real disappointment.

I was surprised at how much ink I was really getting! I am super happy with my purchase. These inks have amazing colors and flow fantastically with my J. Herbin Glass Dip Pen. As some others have said before, the fragrance of the inks do smell kind of the same after they dry on paper, but there is definitely different smells. I like the Rose scented one for color and smell, but the Orange one smells like Fruity Pebbles cereal. haha.
I use these for doodling mostly. So, the smells are really only for me as an added plus while I doodle. I will be buying more when I run out, but there is so much ink that I do not see that happening for quite a while.

Love these inks! Have yet to try all of them but I already checked, and yes, they do all smell different.
A warning for anyone buying this: be very careful when using a piston with these inks. They are fairly light and it is very easy to tip them over as well as get ink everywhere. Always draw ink where it is easy to clean up a possible spill!

Some scents are stronger than others, but they are all scented and do smell different. The colors are great, they work amazingly in my fountain pens, and the variety is nice. I've picked up a full sized bottle of the Orange because while the scent isn't amazing it's easily my favourite color.
