This is another TY Lee Exclusive ink made by De Atramentis. It’s another scented blue ink. It’s fragrance is lightly floral and not too overwhelming.

My thanks to Glenn for the ink sample. De Atramentis Myrrh is a bright turquoise blue ink that’s scented to smell like the Myrrh plant. Hence, the name. I love the brightness of the ink. It’s a happy colour that pops off the page. It’s a decent shading ink as well, going from a deep
This is one deep purple by De Atramentis. It’s so dark that at times you can even fool yourself that it is black especially with wetter nibs. De Atramentis Aubergine goes down dark but dries to a greyish-purple. It shade subtly and I think it would make for an excellent alternative to regular corporate black
