Review: Montblanc Je T'aime Love Letter Ink

This 2005 Montblanc Love Letter fountain pen ink was generously sent to me by Steven! This is the 2005 original release. Thank you so much Steven. I am honored and so excited to get to review this ink! Also, I love to sniff things and often the first thing I do when I get an ink is sniff it. How perfect, since this is scented...

     CONS
    • Not water-resistant.
    OVERALL

    Is there anything more romantic than an ink called Love Letter that smells like rose oil? Not disgusting, artificial roses, but actual roses? It's beautiful. It's a beautiful red that is a joy to write with and is a treat for the senses. I only wish it were water resistant and that the scent of roses would last longer. Nevertheless, it's absolutely delightful. I hope Montblanc releases this ink again. I would buy it in a heartbeat. (Get it? Heartbeat?)
