Chartreuse (the color) is named after Chartreuse (the liqueur), not the other way around as many believe, and the story of the liqueur is fascinating.

It took over a century for French monks to learn how to properly distill the "Elixer of Long Life" as it was called, likely created by a 16th century alchemist that apparently liked herbs (there were upwards of 100 in the original formula).

In 1903, the French govnerment nationalised the Chartreuese distillery, ejecting the monks and taking control of the liqueur. The color, though, well that's here for the taking. Read more about the origin of the liqueur (and the color) at The Paris Review.

This bright green is so versatile. It has a beautiful hue in white soap bases and is so vibrant in clear bases. I love it!
