History : Chevreul defined the "apple green" as the "bright green". In fact, this pretty fresh and tender green is reminiscent of spring, wheat grass, fresh peas or Granny Smith apple. In the colour spectrum, the "vert pomme" (apple green) is the first tint to shift the vision from warm and toned coulours to neutral and cold colours.
It can easily be associated with neutral tones - black, grey and white - but also, more subtly, with taupe, khaki green or dark chocolate.
