Ooo~I've got one!

 

I learnt this word a few years ago but I can't particularly define it properly. But according to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, this is would be it. 

 

Solferino: A moderate purplish red that is redder, darker, and slightly stronger than average rose, redder and duller than violine pink, redder and paler than magenta rose, and redder and less strong than average fuchsia rose
