    The lightly scented inks “do not contain pigments”? I R confused.

    But I still love the packaging for those Nest things. I don’t know that they smell as nice as they look, but they look awfully pretty.

    • Robin says:

      Ha, I was confused by that too. From Wikipedia:

      “Because fountain pens operate on the principle of capillary action, ink for them is almost exclusively dye-based. Pigment-based inks (which contain solid pigment particles in a liquid suspension) tend to clog the narrow passages of the pens.”

      • Robin says:

        And adding, those Nest bottles are gorgeous, shame they did not put them in a prettier box. But I nearly always think that about coffrets.

      • mals86 says:

        Thanks for clearing that up for me. (My artist sister is laughing at me right now… )

  2. Merlin says:

    Pretty as they are, those Nest bottles are way better in the regular size. I don’t think the illustrations they are using can be captured that well on a miniature sized space.

    • Robin says:

      Nice to be able to get an affordable set though!

  3. Marjorie Rose says:

    Love the scent of sweet peas, but haven’t yet gotten to the point of spending $50 on a candle. If it were half that and long-burning, I’d be tempted!

    • Robin says:

      I am cheap about candles too! I’ve been dithering about a Papier d’Armenie candle for over two years now, LOL…the papers are only a few bucks, can’t make myself pay for the candle.
