Which Adox paper would that be?

I should have been more specific. I use graded papers mostly and I was speaking of Adox Nuance, which I have heard is really made by Emaks (not sure about that though).
I generally don't like the way VC papers tone. That's one of the reasons I try to stick with graded when possible. However, now that Seagull is gone and Freestyle is no longer marketing Slavich the selection is getting rather small.
Maybe you have a suggestion for a VC paper that tones a nice hint of eggplant in selenium?
Not right off. It depends on how "eggplant" you want it. MCC 110 does start to get purple/magenta. I don't care for it so I stop short of that but you might try it. It's a very nice, very rich paper, just not capable (according to what I've read here and I haven't found a way either) of a really cool tone. It's a very nice neutral to slightly warm tone though.
