Early each month I receive a delightful package of ink samples from Goulet Pens. This month was a bevy of purple and red in celebration of Valentines Day. Purple and red are my favorite ink colors and this ink drop include De Atramentis Auburgine, Diamine Deep Magenta, Iroshizuku Yama-budo, Rohrer and Klinger Cassia and Sailor Jentle Grenade.
I’ve been using De Atramentis Auburgine in my Pilot Custom, fine point fountain pen. It is very dark and shows up well in this fine point pen. It’s too dark of a color to shade well and is quite different than my other purple inks, it’s more red. I might have to purchase a bottle of this ink at a future time.
Diamine Deep Magenta is a bright, vibrant ink. I enjoy pink and this one is very cheerful. It’s not as bright as De Atramentis Dianthus though in the same color family.
Rohrer and Klinger Cassia is a new purple and I like it. If I didn’t have several purple inks I would order a bottle of this ink right away. It’s behaving well in my Pilot Metal Falcon .
