In the year 1700, M. Herbin created The "Jewel of Inks" in his little shop on the Rue des Fosses Saint-Germain in Paris. The J. Herbin brand is therefore the oldest name in fine pen inks in the world. J. Herbin inks are pH Neutral and are comprised of All Natural dyes in their fountain pen inks. This natural composition and delicate balance of ingredients is the essence of any fine ink.

Fashioned with great care, these 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.
The inks in this set are lightly scented and presented in elegant semi-frosted bottles. They are naturally scented and do not contain pigments, so they are perfect for fountain pens.
J. Herbin scented inks are made from floral water (hydrosols) of rose, orange, lavender, apple, and violet flowers. 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.
