Love is a dark red with an orange undertone.
In large swabs you can see the small pop of brown sheen but some of the orange undertone comes through as well.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was a bit of bleeding and feathering in the flex nib as well as some feathering in the other nib sizes.
I used a Sailor Pro Gear Slim Supernova with a broad nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, I was surprised by the orange undertone, which comes out stronger on cream paper. I prefer this ink on white paper. For a love red, I expected more of a true red with less orange.
