Ink Review – Goulet Pens Blog
Hello, everybody! Madigan here, bringing you an ink review of the insanely beautiful Lamy Dark Lilac ink. I wasn’t sure what to expect out of this ink, but as soon as I saw Whitney’s Monday Matchup, I couldn’t wait to get it in my pen. It is a deep, dark purple with just a hint of sheen. From the second the nib of my Lamy fountain pen hit paper, I fell into deep, dark purple love. This ink exceeded every expectation I had! This is one that I will absolutely be adding to my ink collection because, not only is it a gorgeous color, it’s limited edition and won’t last long. Read on to find out why I’m so in love with this ink.
Smear Test (Dry Time):
- Medium– Pretty standard dry time here. Under 30 seconds, so it should be good for notebook writing. If you are a lefty though, this might not be a good ink for you.
Drip Test (Water Resistance):
- Low– This is not a water resistant ink, so keep it out of the way of sudden storms or spilled beverages. That being said, when water is applied, it goes from deep purple to a pretty pink. It would be great to use in ink washes!
- Medium-I gave this a medium in saturation because the sheen didn’t show up until the second swab. If you are basing it on the purple color alone, I’d give it a high rating.
Ease of Cleaning:
- Easy– This ink washes quickly and easily out of your pen!
- Medium-You can definitely see some shading, especially in flex or stub nibs.
Medium– Perfect flow. Not to wet, not to dry, the nib glides effortlessly across the page.
- Sheen– You read that right! This is a purple ink with some sheen. Like other sheening inks, you’ll want to lay out a lot of ink to see that extra glimmer. Tomoé River paper and flex or stub nibs will give you the best chance of seeing it. Watch Brian’s video on his Top Sheening inks for more tips.
Packaging and Aesthetics:
- 50ml glass bottle with 2ml ink samples also available.
- Well designed, pleasingly round bottle with blotting paper in the base
- Large round opening making it easy to fill your pen.

If you are a purple ink fan, I highly recommend purchasing Lamy Dark Lilac. I’ve reviewed several purple inks, and I can safely say I’ve never seen anything like it! And while it is breath taking in art, it’s also dark enough to work in a work or school setting. It would be great for notes, journal writing, or letter writing. Still not sure about it? It’s also incredibly affordable! Seriously, this ink wins on every level for me. I usually stick to ink samples, but I’m purchasing a full bottle of this spectacular ink for my collection.
You can find Lamy Dark Lilac ink at Gouletpens.com in a 50ml glass bottle for $10.50, a pack of cartridges for $4.50, or a 2ml ink sample for $1.25.

August 9, 2012
Lamy violet is a medium to deep purple color with blue undertones. I find it very similar to Diamine violet but slightly more saturated. This is one of the colors that I keep in a pen at all times because it’s a great purple that stands out but doesn’t scream “look at me.”

Verified PurchaseThis is a beautiful ink.
The actual color isn’t as bright as it looks on packaging. The actual ink is a beautiful darker purple. In some lights, its hard to tell its purple but if you look at it directly, its very clearly a purple.
Though the color itself is beautiful, I probably wouldn’t buy it again as I was hoping for a more violet than dark purple.

I love this color — noticeably purple but not unreadably so, and dries nicely on the page.

I’m just tickled pink (or violet) that these came in stock again. Missed them the first time around, & my pens suffered. The only thing better than violet in my Lamy pens would be this violet with a light mix of black, as happened when I replaced my black cartridge in the “Joy” (1.1mm) w/violet w/out cleaning the pen first: Bad practice, but a lovely color resulted, and lasted for a full page of fairly dense writing! It’s a lovely color; spices up everyday writing!

Amazon.com : Lamy USA Lamy Fountain Pen Boxed Ink Cartridges (5 per pack) Purple : Pen Refills : Office ProductsI have been using Lamy fountain pains for many years and love them to death! 🙂 This is the first time I noticed violet as an available ink refill color (perhaps my oversight, not sure how long they’ve been available) but I HAD to try it out as purple is my main theme color.
LINE QUALITY/FLOW – I give this ink 5 stars for flow and line quality … it literally made a perfect line the first time the nib touched the paper … NO skip at all, not even on the first stroke. It continues to lay down really nice, consistent, smooth lines.
COLOR/HUE – (personal preference) The shade of purple ink is very pleasing to my eye. I’m not sure what international standard color system you use, so I can’t give you an absolute reference, but I’d describe it as a strong, “very slightly to the red” side of purple … it’s definitely NOT a blueish purple (not the color of the petals on a violet flower) but neither is so red as to be called a magenta. Perhaps a mulberry? Whether or not you will like it depends on your preferences, but I do like it. See attached photo sample. I should note that I feel the color compliments the hue of the Al-Star purple Lamy pen body.
DRYING QUALITIES – the ink dries fast enough that I haven’t had it smear on me yet in 2 days of heavy writing. I should note that the hue/tone change slightly as the ink dries. It starts off a bit lighter tone and slightly redder hue and dries to the darker/bluer, ending up in a medium mulberry (see photo).
TRANSLUCENT/OPAQUE – I’d describe this as a medium opaque ink. Some inks, when you look at droplets of them on a bright surface, you can’t see any trace of light reflecting back through the ink droplet … completely opaque. This ink allows some light reflection back through the ink. So if you want a seriously opaque purple ink, this might not work for you. I would NOT describe this as a watery, or “thin” or overly transparent ink. It puts down a line I like very much.
I will update this review in the future if any new properties of this ink come to light.
Lamy Violet – The Clumsy Penman’s InKfusion Site
The ink I wish to discus a little today is Violet from
As it says on the box this is a Violet ink. Is it ? hmmm …maybe – but not easy to define. Some people may call it purple instead, but these two are quite often used as a synonym which I think is incorrect, since violet is ‘natural/spectral’ color (has wavelength), whereas Purple is accordingly to Wiki a ‘ deep, rich shade between crimson and violet as a range of colors between red and blue’. .
OK how about the ink itself? This is well saturated and vibrant ink with some magenta undertones. Color wise It is similar to de Atramentis Magenta Violet. The flow and lubrication is slightly above average, but writing experience with this ink is pleasant on most paper types I tried. On cheap copy paper it feathers and bleedthrough is pretty noticeable, however on better and good quality paper it performs fine with no problems. I read an opinion that Lamy Violet is ‘plain’ and does not show any shading. I completely disagree with this. It shows very nice shading and it adds some shine as well, especially with wetter nibs. This greatly depends on the paper and nib size too, but from my experience I have noticed a decent shading with F, M, Broad and italic nib. With flexible nibs it may be not that pronounced, because the amount of ink left on the paper is so much. The problem with shading is likely to occur on copy paper or on the other well absorbing types of paper. On Rhodia and Midori it looks pretty cool (see below).
Do I like it? Personally, I prefer darker, muted tones of violet/purple, but I think this on is quite attractive. Maybe because it looks a bit too feminine for myself (which is very subjective), but I think many ladies would love to use it in their diaries, planners, calendars and notebooks. My small daughter love it, which is not a surprising, really.
Price tag: pack of 5 cartridges costs around £ 1.60-1.80 in the UK, whereas in USA it costs around $ 4.50,

Lamy Dark Lilac — Macchiato Man
First off it’s worth noting that Diamine Imperial Purple and Akkerman #13 Simplisties Violet are, in my opinion, the exact same ink. They perform exactly the same, the sheen the same, they look the same, they shade the same and even the chromatography is the same! The main difference between Diamine Imperial Purple and LDL is that the shading is that LDL shades darker than Diamine Imperial Purple (and thus Akkerman #13) and is generally darker than overall than Imperial Purple. Both Imperial Purple and LDL shade a similar amount but LDL is probably lightly more. Imperial Purple also has the same nice gold sheen that LDL has but the sheen isn’t a prevalent. The colour is fairly similar but is a little leaning more blue than LDL.
When Cross Violet first came out many were hoping that it was be a good dupe of LDL and while it is an amazing ink, a dupe it isn’t. Cross Violet Shades much less than LDL and is also universally lighter. It also sheen green rather than gold.
Diamine Pansy is the closest ink to LDL. It’s a little bluer than LDL but unlike other potential alternatives it shades nice and dark like LDL does but doesn’t shade as much and is generally as dark as LDL. It also has the gold sheen of LDL but not as extreme and not quite as yellow. Looking at the chromatography, the pink in Pansy separates from the blue a little much like LDL but unlike Diamine Imperial Purple/Akkerman #13.
Bungubox L’Amant is considerably pinker and lacks a lot of blue compared to LDL. The Sheen is much greener compared to LDL. This is an amazing ink, but I don’t believe it’s should be considered an alternative.
I’ve heard suggestions from people that Montblanc Lavender Purple as well as some De Atramentis Purples might work well as a LDL alternative. This should hopefully put to rest those suggestions. While they are all good inks, they are not similar to LDL and should not be considered an alternative. De Atramentis Violets and Diamine Majestic Purple are considerably lacking in shading and red compared to LDL. De Atramentis Aubergine is too red and lacking in vibrancy. Noodler’s Purple is too blue and Montblanc Lavender Purple is too red.

Fountain Pen Review: 2016 Special Edition Lamy Safari Dark Lilac
After years of waiting, Lamy fans and collectors got their long time wish in 2016: a purple Lamy Safari!!! After three green pens in four years—two of them called neon—Lamy gave in to the clamor for a purple Safari, and issued the Dark Lilac.
Dark Lilac is Lamy’s Special Edition Safari pen for 2016. I have a Dark Lilac fountain pen, but the Dark Lilac Safari collection also includes a rollerball and a ballpoint pen. Dark Lilac not a ‘limited edition’ pen like the previous ones, but a ‘special edition’ Safari. I received the Dark Lilac fountain pen and its matching ink in this review at no cost from Lamy’s authorized and exclusive distributor in the Philippines, Times Trading Company.
|Dark Lilac Safari fountain pen in box. Times Trading, through its sellers in the Philippines (Scribe Writing Essentials, National Bookstore), includes an ink cartridge and a Lamy Z24 converter for every fountain pen purchase.|
Lamy released the Dark Lilac Safari fountain pen in a packaging similar to that of the 2014 Neon Coral. Instead of the old plastic pen box, Lamy now uses laminated cardboard boxes with the year’s color theme for their special and limited edition pens.
The announcement of the 2016 Safari surprised many. Lamy did a turn around in 2016, and created a special edition pen that is not glossy and bright (neon). Instead, the new Safari has a muted and subdued deep purple color in matte finish. But the surprise does not end there — with Dark Lilac, Lamy brought back the black clip and black nib that were installed in the early edition Safari pens. The black clip/black nib combination looks better on the Dark Lilac, instead of the shiny chrome clip and nib.
Lamy Safaris are student pens, and the starter pen of many fountain pen enthusiasts. Dark Lilac is still made from the sturdy ABS plastic – the same material used in Lego blocks, golf club heads, keyboard keycaps, inner walls of refrigerators, and the filament commonly used in 3D printers. Designed by Wolfgang Fabian, this pen was first presented during the 1980 Frankfurt exhibition, and has been in Lamy’s regular production since then. Despite some fountain pen enthusiasts’ low regard for this plastic pen, a number of fans around the world collect the Safari and its aluminum cousin, Lamy Al-star.
The Dark Lilac Safari’s parts are: barrel, section (grip + feed + nib), converter, and cap. Safari fountain pens measure 5.5 inches capped, 5 inches uncapped, and 6.5 inches posted. It’s a lightweight pen, and anyone can use it for extended periods of writing. The cap with the oversized clip is 2.5 inches long, the length from the nib to converter is 4.6 inches, while the barrel measures about 3 inches.
Lamy’s proprietary piston operated Z24 converters are used to fill the Safari fountain pen with ink from a bottle, but T10 ink cartridges are also available.
Dark Lilac shares the same finial (top cap button) with those of previous limited edition Safaris: Lime Green (2008), Neon (2013), Neon Coral (2014), and Neon Lime (2015).
Some fountain pen users frown at the Safari’s triangular grip, saying it is uncomfortable and annoying. This feature, however, is designed to make writing easier — it is meant as a guide for users to have a firm and secure grip on the pen. An anti-slipping brake near the end of the section prevents a user’s fingers from slipping into the nib while writing. I do not find the triangular grip uncomfortable at all. I actually do not notice it when I’m using my Safari pens.
Lamy’s interchangeable nibs are very useful. A Safari fountain pen uses the same feed and nib as those on the Vista, Al-Star, Joy, Nexx, and Studio. Due to the color difference, my nib options for the Dark Lilac is limited only to a broad nib from an older Safari. I can still put a 1.1 stub or 1.9 italic nib on it, but again, the color difference will bother me. But that’s just me. Any Lamy nib for the Safari, chrome or otherwise, will fit Dark Lilac.
Safari fountain pens bought in the Philippines have medium nibs, but other nib sizes are available: extra-fine, fine, broad, and left-handed. The Safari can also be fitted with an italic nib ranging from 1.1mm to 1.9mm.
|Lamy Safari limited and special edition fountain pens from 2008 to 2016.|
|Lamy previously issued a purple pen in 2009: the Black Purple Al-star. It’s more red than purple.|
When Times Trading sent the Dark Lilac Safari pen to me, they kindly included a bottle of Dark Lilac ink, a matching ink color for the 2016 special edition fountain pen.
The 50ml Dark Lilac ink is in a Lamy T52 bottle that comes with a roll of blotter that can be used to clean the pen after filling, or to blot writing. The bottle has a small basin at the bottom, to allow filling when the ink level is low.
I am a blue ink person, and I don’t usually use non-blue fountain pen inks, especially bright purple inks that stain converters. There are only two purple inks that I like and use: J. Herbin Poussière de Lune (PdL) and Diamine Damson — both muted and dark purple. But Dark Lilac ink is a happy surprise from Lamy. It is deep, dark purple, and has impressive shading and gold sheen. It flows well and smoothly, and does not stain fountain pen converters.
|Lamy Dark Lilac ink. Impressive shading and sheen!|
|A single stroke of Dark Lilac shows its depth and beautiful golden sheen. It reminds me of a dark night sky filled with stars.|
|Double strokes of Dark Lilac. This is how dark it can be when used in wider or broader nibs.|
Swabs of the three inks make me think that Dark Lilac is PdL and Damson combined. It has the reddish hue of PdL, and dark blue from Damson: a purple ink I can use for writing notes and journal entries, a purple ink I can use for daily writing.
|Who’s the darkest of them all? Dark Lilac!|
There is one more thing I like about the Dark Lilac Safari: the purple changes with the light, almost iridiscent. It can look dark and almost black in soft light, but changes to a brighter, happier purple under intense light. It’s a different Lamy Safari, one I’d hold on to in my Lamy Safari collection.
If you want to get a Dark Lilac Safari, you better get one now. It’s almost sold out, and to date, Lamy will not be making this special edition pen anymore. Go get yourself a Dark Lilac now!

Special note for STABILO woody 3 in 1:
We would like to point out that although STABILO woody 3 in 1 is water-soluble (water-soluble) it cannot be washed. It depends on the type of fabric and the color of the lead. Quite often, misleading information is provided even in specialty stores, or the facts are simply mixed up.
Unfortunately, in particular the colors 370 (erika) and 385 (purple) penetrate more surfaces (including radiator paint and leather).STABILO woody 3 in 1 colors can be wiped off smooth surfaces (eg glass) with a damp cloth. If marks are still visible, apply standard liquid cleaning liquid to a soft, damp cloth and wipe clean. You can also use a pumice stone to remove color residues from the skin, as it erases the top layer of the skin and therefore reduces coloration. Please note: In general, all woody colors cannot be easily washed out of porous surfaces / materials.
Crayons on the skin:
The pencil is not designed for cosmetic purposes and therefore should not be used as makeup (use on the skin) or for coloring hair.
If the color cannot be completely removed from the skin with a damp cloth, we recommend using a standard manual cleaning paste for hard spots or a facial scrub (which is less prone to irritating delicate skin). Alternatively, it can also help to use a pumice stone to wipe away the top layer of the skin and therefore reduce coloration. Since the skin can be irritated by this, you should rinse immediately with clean water and apply a moisturizer to your skin.
Colored pencils on material:
For intensive staining, apply a damp microfiber cloth until the color has disappeared from the material.Then wash the material at the appropriate temperature.
If necessary, pre-treat with ox gall soap or special stain removers (caution: this is not suitable for every material, please follow the instructions in the package!). However, traces may remain depending on the fiber type or material mixture.
Colored pencils on leather:
Dab with microfiber cloth until color has been removed as far as possible.If there are still traces of color on smooth leather, try wiping thoroughly with a small liquid kitchen and bathroom cleaner and a damp cloth without damaging the finish.
Crayons on radiators:
Radiator paint is a special type of paint that is subject to strong temperature changes and therefore contains a high level of plasticizers to prevent paint cracking. Plasticizers do not leave paint with a hard, smooth surface, but make it easier to color the pencil pigments.Fast action is required here! Marks left by colored pencils should be wiped off or removed immediately with a damp cloth. If marks remain, wipe with a damp cloth and standard liquid kitchen and bathroom cleaner.
Crayons on furniture or wood floors:
It is best to immediately wipe the stain with a slightly damp microfiber cloth until the ink has been removed as much as possible. If ink cannot be removed this way, gently wipe the stain with a damp cloth and kitchen and bathroom cleaner.Be careful not to damage the varnish on the material. If the stain has become dull, try returning the shine of the stain with a free abrasive.
For untreated wood, the ink is usually absorbed by the wood like water stains, and thus is unfortunately very difficult to remove. Depending on the penetration depth of the ink, abrasive / emery polishing may be successful.
