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.

Lovely pastel greens

A very pretty green. Surprisingly perfect for a pear scent, which is what I used in the picture! I used it at half the recommended amount for the bottom layer and added TD and reduced the amount by half for the three additional layers.

The new chartreuse mica color came out very bright in my cold process. Thank you for the new color!
