Deep and dark in color, Noir inspiration invites us to reflection. Noir inspiration takes us on a nocturnal olfactory stroll evoking woody scents smoked with round tobacco, and a subtle union of moss and vetiver.
Scented inks from Jacques Herbin offer a new expressive dimension to writing, correspondence or calligraphy. They combine deep colors and an evocative scent of memory and travel. Scented inks develop subtle hints of honey or lime, with musky or floral inflections.
Without overload or artifice, with a sober and elegant brightness, Jacques Herbin Essentielles inks echo the shades of watercolor colors. They are the accomplices of any amateur or connoisseur of the arts of pen and graphic arts, artists and travelers. The high quality ink made in France comes in a glass bottle of 50ml.
Established in Paris in 1670 —when King Louis XIV was 32 years old— the Maison Herbin initially specialised in the sealing wax, fine stationery and ink trade, and imported shellac from India.
In 1798 the Maison changed tack and put its faith in the future: whilst continuing to produce wax and engage in the paper and color (pigments) trade, it launched production of its own writing ink on the initiative of Jacques Herbin, member of the fourth generation.
