INK REVIEW: De Atramentis Sandalwood

Love this ink. Except....

Let me show and tell you about all of the positives first.

I love the color. Green with a touch of blue.  Definitely pretty.

It writes well. A little shading in there.

It scores well with me. I shouldn't have given it Fun Bonus Points, but I was caught up in the moment.

So what's the problem?  It stinks. It's noticeable, but ok at first. Tolerable. Even kind of fun.

But dude. After a week of using DeAtramentis Sandalwood as my green of choice, I was so over it. Gross. I don't mind the scent of sandalwood - Mr. Pentulant would even say that I'm a bit of a hippy who embraces the, ahem, earthy scents. But not this. It was just too much. There was a hint of a petroleum smell in the background - totally ruined it for me. Going on the Hated It list. Bummer.

  1. It reminds me of Kaweco turquoise - sadly, only available in cartridges. Bonus: no smell. (As someone who can't have chemical smells, noting that there is a smell is a great help to me....)
