:: Chypre ::
pronunciation: \ ˈshēprᵊ \ (shee-pray)
The Chypre palette is a symphonic composition of individual mineral hues layered in saturation like fragrance notes. A subtle collection with sharp citrusy warm tones, mellowed out by the grounding calm of olive hues, and serenity of rich velvety resinous brown. When mixed gorgeous bronze, blush pink, somber umbers, and mustards appear.
Inspired by my abiding love of scent, the arrangement of fragrance, and the mysterious and captivating way in which perfume blends can morph to the unique sensory perception of the wearer. So too will a captivating lyricism evolve for each creative and artist who reaches for these colours. A palette of six lovely artisan watercolors handcrafted in our studio forest with a synthesis of memory, warmth, and rich depth.
