Ink Review: J. Herbin 1670 Caroube de Chypre

J. Herbin 1670 Caroube de Chypre writing samples

J. Herbin 1670 Caroube de Chypre. This is a lovely red-brown ink containing gold particles from J. Herbin. It’s a quieter gold-infused ink, in which the gold serves to deepen the rich color, giving an effect like a dark copper, or from some pens, a warm cocoa.

Caroube de Chypre won’t be the choice for those wanting a dramatic ink, but I loved the ink color and versatility. And because Caroube de Chypre is a relatively low-maintenance ink, I would trust it in any pen for an extended time period.

  1. This one reminds me just a tiny bit of Herbin Cacao du Bresil, which I *love* for the sweetness of the color. It is a soft, soft brown like well-worn teddy bear fur. It’s like they used CdB as a springboard and glammed it up, which makes this pretty darn perfect 🙂

  2. Wonderful review. I really must get into my bottle and have some fun.

    I also need to add a clear model to my little flock of Sports. Inks always look so good in them!
