Beautiful depth of colour
Stunning, dramatic colour which changes in different light. Used modern emulsion which is more practical but still gives a great result and depth of colour. Farrow and Ball never disappoints.

Color and Finish
Color changes depending on the surface on which it is painted as well as the actual finish selected.

Green Smoke is a lovely colour and I have used it to paint my outside doors for a number of years using the gloss finish. Last year it was painted by a decorator who used the egg shell finish and within a few weeks it had begun to peel and chip, particularly at the base of the door. I would therefore only recommend the gloss for exterior woodwork.

F&B have simply survived by presenting an upmarket presence & yet they flatter to deceive. . Quite frankly, the paint has zero relation to the colour advertised. I painted my shed in Green Smoke & left 1 side as it was with Ronseal Woodland, it is exactly the same, you cannot tell the difference & Ronseal 60 percent cheaper. Further, I returned 2 large tins of French Grey because it bears no resemblance to the advertised colour. I'm surprised F &B is still in existence . Unbelievable. It's almost incredible that this has not been brought to the attention of
the directors. I'm taking my tins back agin for a refund.

Excellent front door colour
I used gloss this time as the exterior emulsion last time understandably did not stand up very well to the climatic extremes experienced here 1200ft up in the Pennines. It fits very well into the landscape and the natural stone of my house. Very easy to apply -I am usually not a neat painter but no splashes at all.

Great advice and service
The quality of the product goes without saying, it looks fantastic and is easy to apply. The advice I was given in the Blackheath store was fantastic, it made the whole process a joy.

The colour has great depth and the finish is excellent. It has covered both wood and metal exterior surfaces, some of the surfaces were quite old and had an existing bright green gloss finish and the Farrow and Ball Green Smoke Exterior Eggshell covered beautifully.

An interesting greyish green. In some lights it has a blue tinge, but in full daylight definitely green!
