J Herbin Scented Ink - Chocolate

$15.00 USD


The origins of J.Herbin date back to 1670. At around this time the French sailor, of that name, produced his first ink in his Paris workshop, "The Ink of Ships." This ink was an iron gall ink, required to be waterproof due to the weather and wet conditions associated with sailing a ship.

The recipe may have been formulated for the ship's master on his trips back and forth to India; or when he settled down in Paris to first start producing his sealing wax. Perhaps another sailor made his way to J. Herbin's workshop, and convinced him to produce a ship's ink.

These exquisitely charming inks, lightly scented and presented in an elegant 30ml glass bottle are perfect for fountain pens since they are naturally scented and do not contain pigments. J. Herbin inks are made from floral water (hydrosols) of rose, lavender apple and violets. 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.
