    I have four that I love to use, depending on what I am writing. De Atramentis Alexander Hamilton, Noodlers’ Black Swan in Australian Roses (though I think this is more of a burgundy than purple), Rohrer & Klingner Cassia, and Robert Oster Black Violet.

    This is another breathtaking Thursday Things!! I just love purples, especially the rich dark colors, like fine amethyst crystals. My Lamy Dark Lilac is such a pen, as well as Lamy’s Dark Lilac ink. And that Leuchtturm1917 notebook too. This collection and its photos is such eye candy, so perfectly created, thanks for making my Thursday more special!

      My boyfriend’s favorite color is purple as well. I have been writing my letters to him in Lamy Dark Lilac (He’s stationed in upstate NY, but just got his final orders to come home in a few weeks now that his contract is up). I will have to try out some of these inks for future notes to him though! Love these colors Sarah put together. Glad you enjoyed them too!

    What a royal show! My favorite purple product has to be Diamine Purple Pazzazz. Like Tom said, Lamy Dark Lilac was very nice. Is Diamine Purple Dream similar in color to Purple Pazzazz? I’m looking for a purple with a similar shade but without the shimmer. Thank you!

    • Kathy

      David, the Purple Dream does look like Purple Pazzazz without the shimmer. Can’t wait to hear what the Goulet experts think…

      • David L.

        Thank you, Kathy!

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      I’d say it’s very close!

    Oohh! I had forgotten how much I love purple. As Tom said, this TT is real eye candy. Absolutely beautiful. The only one of these pens I have is the Nemosine. I can see more purple pens in my future! I love purple ink, and have really enjoyed the new Monteverde Charoite lately. Not a true purple, perhaps, but “purplely.” I keep it in my broad Pilot Vanishing Point. Think my next order will be a Visconti Imperial Purple with Diamine Purple Dream! Love this! Thanks for brightening a rainy Florida day. My puppy Woody is lying across my computer as I try to type…think he likes this, too!

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Oh boy! I bet that Charoite flows WONDERFULLY from the VP nib! The Blue Carbonesque VP is next up on my list to buy, but might get booted down a sport but the gold TWSBI mini that’s coming. Glad we could brighten the day a bit 😉

    Purple is my jam! I love my Dark Lilac Safari and the ink, and also Herbin Poissure de Lune, and Noodler’s Purple Wampum.

  • Lesley Schultz

    Squeeee!!! Want ALL THE PURPLE THINGS!!!!! Sadly my budget won’t allow me. Oh well, I will keep this Thursday Things as a good part of my wishlist.

    GORGEOUS Thursday Things! I have the purple Leuchtturm1917 on my wish list for my next bullet journal. I’m working my way through a bunch of ink samples, trying to find my a favorite ink for each color. I’m looking forward to trying my sample of De Atramentis Alexander Hamilton. I also think Diamine Damson looks interesting. I’ll have to add Diamine Purple Dream to my list – that’s a striking color!

  • Autumn Peterson

    I just picked up some Sailor Voice Blueberry Pie ink and it’s pretty much been rocking my socks off every time I use it. But I can never get enough purple so this post is just wonderful to look at!

  • Kaida Dragonborn

    Diamine Imperial Purple it’s my go-to ink. Dark enough to look professional but still fun!
