The oldest name in ink production, J. Herbin was established in 1670 by an enterprising sailor armed with sealing wax formulas from his travels in India. After designing specialty inks for French luminaries like Louis XIV and Victor Hugo, the company became synonymous with high-quality writing supplies. Among them are these naturally scented inks, made from floral water (or hydrosols) of rose, orange, lavender, apple, and violet. Inspired by a tradition that began in Italy in the 19th century, J. Herbin sources its hydrosols from Grasse, France: a Provençal town known for its perfume industry and the floral scents born of it. Formulated without pigments, these inks are particularly well suited for use with fountain pens.
