Caroube de Chypre – J. Herbin 1670 ink review

As most of you already know in two months J. Herbin will introduce new ink in 1670 glittery line – Caroube de Chypre. That’s great. I was afraid that after Diamine Shimmertastic inks mass introduction J. Herbin will have hard time engineering some new color. They’ve decided to go with brown with goldish particles and named this ink Caroube de Chypre. Mishka from Bureaudirect sent me a sample and I’d like to present some photos and thoughts on the ink.

Tghe color can be described as reddish brown. The flow is nice alythough some particles always stay in the feed. Happily they’re easy to clean. I’m not crazy about the color but let’s be honest 1670 line isn’t 100 % about unique color, it’s more about beautiful bottle and color / glitter combo. And Caroube de Chypre shines like crazy. Also I’m impressed by J. Herbin marketing – they make people wonder whether they’ll see another ink in 1670 line, make them wait impatiently. To be honest it’s much better than introducing a lot of special inks at once. Personally I dislike shimering inks and I lack motivation to review all Diamine line. However I’m always eager to try new J. Herbin ink (or Pelikan Edelstein Ink of the Year) because they make me feel it’ll be something special. It never is but I wait impatientluy to try it nevertheless :)

Enough talking. Let’s take a look at some pictures.
