According to Pantone, Radiant Orchid "blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple - one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuschia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health".
