De Atramentis Christmas Black 2012 is (perhaps obviously) a discontinued fountain pen ink. I used just a bit of the sample I have – it wrote well, but the color is more of a gray.
Oh, how I love yellow inks. This one would be good for highlighting, but not much else as it’s not very readable in most circumstances.
De Atramentis Hyacinth is a such a pretty blue ink that leans a bit toward purple. It’s a scented ink and while I’m open to the idea of scented inks, this one is not for me – it’s a bit to sweet/strong for my tastes.
This is one of those rare inks – I’ve never used it and I don’t even remember seeing it in my collection. I Googled to see if it ‘s still available (it is!) and what people think of it (it seems to be well-liked!).
Have you tried it? I’d love to hear more about it!
Have a very happy Labor Day if you’re in the US. I leave tomorrow to visit my sister while Mr. Pentulant and his mom hold down the fort here.

I’m guessing that ole Tchaikovsky here is a twin for another De Atramentis gray ink, but I don’t know which one.
I have a fantasy that one day I will sit down and figure all of them out – in my copious amounts of (nonexistent) spare time.
