Nemosine isn’t a brand I have come across too many times in the FP world. The first and only time was a Nemosine Singularity fountain pen when I first started with FPs. It was a great pen, but I “outgrew” it in the way that many people do with their first pens.
So when I heard that they had inks I was intrigued! Nemosine released inks that were named for outer space ^_^. I ordered three of these inks directly through Nemosine and received a free starter fountain pen with the purchase. Alpha Centauri was the first one I decided to try because well…purple!
For this review I decided to ink up my neglected Pilot VP Galaxy ^_^ Seemed a fitting choice given the ink name.
Ink Swab with comparison to Lamy Dark Lilac:
This ink is a beautifully saturated purple with some shading and sheen on TR paper. I did get sheen during normal writing as well, but I would not say as much as I usually get with Lamy Dark Lilac. I am impressed with this ink so far and wouldn’t hesitate to have another bottle on hand. Can’t ever have too many purple inks right?
Until next time I leave you with a photo of our youngest puppy all nice and clean! Didn’t last long though…
