Definitely purple, and definitely a deep color. This is a really hard color to find in an ink, so if you are looking for a darker purple, I'd really recommend this ink. The ink is really nice on a Midori MD notebook with cream colored paper. The ink is not super wet, but lubricated enough that the flow is really nice in a Waterman pen. I've found it dries relatively quickly so smearing is not an issue. On good paper, no feathering either.
I LOVE this ink. I love purple. Robert has crafted a beautiful color, that is not just
black thrown into purple ink.. This ink will remind you of the last gorgeous nightfall
you shared with a Loved one.
