  3. Try playing around on this site. NestGirl, I was looking for the "bordeaux" in the "Tous les Bateaux du Monde" and came up with this interactive look at bordeaux and its relatives:

    And for our book shelf, a reference to the oft cited Bali article on colors - worth a read - took a bit to access the whole article

    The color notebook photos are awesome - tedious to scroll through
    There used to be a site with all the florid color names that no one has heard of. But my link no longer works and IMHO Hermes is now gravitating away from the exotic names and going back to basics - vert not arnica and pink not fragole.
    I think the curt names are necessitated by the addition of the scan box on the laminated tags - less room for verbiage and heck, there is usually nmo room for the 3rd color name anymore for scarves so shorter is better

  12. I kinda like the color names, and they are all in the site: http://pourpre.com/fr/dictionnaire

    This is probably the site you are referencing, MT. I got it from sdsurfchick a long time ago, and have used it extensively since, especially the Chromatic listings. The site is very "deep" and I don't go there unless I have a lot of time, lol!

    BTW: I distilled down the colors grabbed from the fashion/clothes F/W mini-show for women. Here they are, more or less...
