FALL officially arrived to Northern hemis-peeps* the day of the Autumnal Equinox, but to us here in parched Los Angeles the sign posts became obvious this week. Ginkgo biloba, Liquidambar, Lagerstroemia indica (aka crepe/crape myrtle) and the two natives Platanus racemosa (California sycamore) and Vitis californica have been displaying their beautiful cloaks.
The Liquidambars being the most stunning of all. We have a essential oil that comes from the resin of this tree used to create Amber chords for Oriental family perfumes. The scent is warm and deep.
The Pantone Corporation, the supposed authority on color trends, unveiled “The Color of the Year” along with these other hues for the FALL 2015 line up which includes lots of natural, haute-hip hues…
1.) PANTONE 17-0627 Dried Herb
2.) PANTONE 16-0110 Desert Sage
3.) PANTONE 18-4214 Stormy Weather
4.) PANTONE 16-1144 Oak Buff
5.) PANTONE 18-1438 Marsala
6.) PANTONE 18-4726 Biscay Bay
7.) PANTONE 19-4326 Reflecting Pond
8.) PANTONE 15-1340 Cadmium Orange
9.) PANTONE 16-2215 Cashmere Rose
10.) PANTONE 17-3628 Amethyst Orchid
As you all know I have a specific color palette I use for my brand which shows up in the wax seals for my perfumes. I’ve matched up some of the wax seals on the little pots with some of the Fall 2015 colors in the chart above.
* Yes, I made up a word hemisphere + people + hemis-peeps.
