Giveaway: J. Herbin scented fountain pen ink samples

UPDATE: Congratulations to Krandall, the winner of the ink!

J. Herbin scented ink samples

My second fabulous giveaway this week is for J. Herbin scented fountain pen ink samples. Included here are red/rose scent, orange/orange scent, blue/lavender scent, and purple/violet scent. (The original set comes with a green/apple scent, but I don't have that one here.) They are the small 10ml sample size bottles.

I don't have samples, but you can look at these ink reviews to see the colors of the inks:

The scents of these inks are too strong and chemical for me. I prefer natural essential oils, and these just give me a headache. So if you're chemical-sensitive, or don't like strong fragrances, I'd advise against using these. The colors are very nice, but I just can't deal with the scent. I hope they go to someone else who enjoys them.


1. HOW: To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post. One comment/entry per person, please.

2. WHO: No anonymous comments will be approved. You need a blogger profile to enter this giveaway (simply because I need to know who you are - I'm not going to count through "anonymous #7"), and if you don't have a blogger profile yet, just make one. It's fast, easy and free, doesn't require a blog, and I think only requires a valid email address. Also, your profile with email address MUST be viewable, or you must provide a valid email address in your comment. If your name is drawn as the winner, and I don't have or can't access an email address for you, I'll choose another winner. (Don't be an Indigo.)

3. WHERE: No location restrictions this time. I'm going to open this one up to anyone, anywhere in the world. We'll see how that goes.

4. WHEN: The deadline for comments/entries is 11:59pm (Eastern Standard/NYC time) on Sunday, June 13. I will choose and announce the random winner on Monday, June 14.

EDIT 7 June: Please read rule #2 carefully, folks. I've just deleted a bunch of entries because there was no contact info. Either 1) you know I already correspond with you so you're absolutely certain I know how to contact you; 2) you have an email address or a blog of your own accessible on your blogger profile, which I am allowed to view; or 3) you leave an email address in your comment. If your comment/entry doesn't fall into one of those categories, I'm deleting it before I do the selection, lest it throw the numbers off for the random number generator when I do the final pick. Lastly, keep your eyes peeled for this magical phrase after you submit your comment/entry: "Comments will be visible after blog owner approval." If you miss that and comment twice, or three times, or more, I'll delete duplicates.

Good luck!
