Most often associated with joy, this warm, sunset tone represents creativity, attraction and enthusiasm. It is linked to the sacral chakra, connected to sexuality, stimulation and creativity. However, orange is often considered the least popular colour, with its vibrancy overwhelming.
The colour of the sunshine, it’s no surprise that yellow is most associated with happiness, freedom and warmth.
