J.Herbin Scented Ink Set
A set of five of the exquisite J Herbin inks, lightly scented and presented in small 10ml bottles. Perfect for fountain pens since they are naturally scented and do not contain pigments and ideal for those wishing to try out the scented range. The five colours/scents are Violet (purple), Lavender (blue), Rose, (pink), Orange (orange) and Apple (green) and they are made from floral water (hydrosols). The hydrosols used by J. Herbin come from Grasse, France, a Provencal town long associated with the perfume industry, and famous for its floral scents.
Fashioned with great care, scented inks are inspired by a tradition that began in Italy in the 19th century. J. Herbin and other manufacturers used to collect different scents from the perfume industry and add them to their inks.
J. Herbin is the oldest name in pen inks in the world. M. Herbin created “The Jewel of Inks” in his shop on the Rue des Fosses Saint-Germain in Paris in 1700. Herbin inks use only natural dyes which means they have a neutral pH.
