fountain pen ink: de atramentis santa claus and a very merry christmas!

I'm a big fan of De Atramentis inks: they have so many ink lines with interesting ink colours. A chocolate scented ink called Santa? Sold. I also like to write my Christmas cards using an ink that feels a bit festive and one called Santa sounded like a good one to consider for this year. Last year, it was J. Herbin's Emerald of Chivor so I needed one that would live up to its (literal) dazzling heights.


The bottle even has a picture of Santa on the label! Can a brown ink really be festive? Well...


It did end up being my Christmas card ink of choice this year and I hope the chocolate scent stayed for long enough for the recipients of my cards to get a whiff.

Up until now, I've still yet to be disappointed by De Atramentis inks and this one has proved a worthy addition to my (extensive) ink collection.

And as this is the last planned blog post for 2020, I want to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. I hope you all have a restful festive period.
