HELIOTROPE PURPLE MICA
In 1771, Joseph de Jussieu, the naturalist who introduced one of the most popular colors and fragrances of the day to Europe, disappeared into his home for the last time. He would publish nothing and go nowhere until his death eight years later, in 1779.
Jussieu, a French physician and avid botanist, traveled in 1735 with a scientific expedition to Peru; his training and interests allowed him to perform both the functions of doctor and naturalist. During his stay in the Peruvian Andes, Jussieu discovered a beautiful and aromatic plant whose flowers turned towards the sun as the day progressed: the heliotrope, from the Greek words "helios" (sun) and "trepein" (to turn).
Jussieu introduced the heliotrope to Europe in 1751, where it quickly became immensely popular. Still in Peru for lack of money, his job as a doctor, and his compulsion to explore, however, Jussieu would not return to his country until 20 years after the heliotrope arrived on the continent.
In 1771, when he finally returned to France, he learned that most of his discoveries had been lost at sea or stolen. His scientific documents, left in Lima for safety, were destroyed when his custodian died. Jussieu's mental state, already exhausted from his years in South America, deteriorated drastically, culminating in a deep depression and self-imposed exile.
However, her contribution to fashion and fragrance would continue to grow, bringing a magical and profound fragrance to gardens around the world (many describe it as smelling like cherry pie).
Inspired by these complex yet delicate flowers, our new Uncharted Color will help guide any project into the sunshine.
