Of all the colours, red is the one that has never looked as profound since the death of technicolor.
What a splendid shot.
We’d call it ‘pillarbox red’ here in London Town, on account of our antique post boxes – does it have a specific name in the sunshine state.
Perhaps we could call it Hermes Red?
I think the most common equivalent would be tomato red – which I think is highly inaccurate – scarlet, or cinnamon red, or crimson would be better. Although, after checking out Hermes at Fragrantica (thank you) I think we’ll opt for that 😉
