Cerise is a pinkish deep bright red. This color name comes from the French word for cherry and was used as an English color name as early as 1845. Cerise has since inspired a number of vibrant reds such as Hollywood Cerise that was introduced by the popular color pencil brand Venus Paradise in the 1940s.
