J. Herbin Poussiere de LuneJ. Herbin Poussiere de Lune bottle

J. Herbin Poussière de Lune is a wonderful dusty purple ink, even after its reformulation. The name means, “dust of the moon,” and I think it suits the color quite nicely. A while back, J. Herbin changed the formula of a number of their inks. Among these was Poussière de Lune. Unfortunately, the reformulation also noticeably changed the color of the ink from a light, dusty, and melancholy purple to something a little bolder and deeper. Some where rather disappointed in this change, but regardless, the ink remains a lovely purple hue. The ink has a bit of shading and can actually get pretty deep in color. Water resistance is poor, but writing can remain slightly visible after exposure. Considering the level of saturation in this ink, I was pleasantly surprised by how easily it cleaned out of my pens. This was actually my first dusty purple ink, but it was the whole reason I became interested in purple inks of this shade. Though it may not find its way into my pens as often as it once did, I still really enjoy this ink. As one of my favorite inks from J. Herbin, I definitely recommend it!
