There are a lot of nice things about this ink. It writes great – no hard starts, no feathering, no bleeding or show through – but I just don’t like it.  The color is nothing special to me and I can’t imagine a situation when I’d want to write in this color.

Having said that, reviews on Goulet Pens are great for Jasmine, though one reviewer said that it bleeds on Filofax paper – good to know.

What do you think?  Love it? Hate it?

Oh, and in case you care about such things – I bought and paid for the sample size of this ink with my own pennies.
