Louis Vuitton Rouge Libertin

I guess I don’t have to intruduce LV brand to you. Some time ago they started selling stationery products and offered some inks. A bottle of ink costs 52 $. Wow. The inks are sold is nicely looking glass bottles. The picture below was printscreened from Louis Vuitton website.

Mmg112 sent me a lor of ink samples and Rouge Libertin was among them. Let’s take a closer look at it.

The color looks nice. I would say it’s in a way similar to Sailor’s Oku-Yama but it lacks saturation and lubrication to concur with Sailor’s ink.

On the other hand it’s fairly well behaved ink that looks nice on most papers. The color is reasonably saturated and it doesn’t jump off the page. It’s quite elegant, actually. The flow is good but not excellent. I haven’t experienced any feathering but some bleedthrough will appear on bad quality paper like Moleskine. It’s not water resistant ink.

I like the color but, quite frankly, just get a bottle of Sailor Oku-Yama and you’ll still have almost 40 $ for other things šŸ™‚
