For the next in this batch of ink reviews we have another with a French name – Noodler’s La Reine Mauve – which also links to aristocracy and revolution. This is an “Eternal” ink with features to defeat forgery. Unlike other similar inks I have tested recently I could actually see myself writing a cheque with this one.

Noodler’s La Couleur Royale – Ink Review
The third in this batch of ink reviews is for Noodler’s La Couleur Royale, which unsurprisingly is a deeply saturated royal blue, leaning towards violet.
Noodler’s North African Violet – Ink Review
This Noodler’s ink is part of the V-Mail series, which I understand to be a recreation of a number of vintage inks.
I like blue inks that lean towards violet, but this was the first ink I bought which described itself as such. There is some inconsistency though in the use of the term “violet” – which is often used interchangeably with “purple”. I refer to the Wikipedia entry , which puts violet between purple and blue, but this ink leans more to blue even than the Wikipedia example of colour-wheel violet.
