Herbin scented inks are made from floral water (hydrosols) of rose, orange, lavender, apple and violets. The hydrosols used by Herbin come from Grasse, France, a Provencal town long associated with the perfume industry, and famous for its floral scents.
J. Herbin has been producing inks since the 1700s and uses all natural dyes, making their inks pH neutral and non-toxic. They are water-based and dry relatively quickly.
Our hand-poured ink samples are packaged in tight-capped vials and contain 3ml of ink per sample (sometimes a bit more). These samples are sold individually, and the available colors are listed as variations of this listing.
