A pop-up shop by Bompas & Parr offers chameleon blooms for Valentine's Day

As cliché as it seems, a bouquet of flowers can still make a great gift, especially if those flowers mysteriously change colors based on certain temperatures.

In collaboration with Perrier-Jouët Champagne, Bompas & Parr created two different chameleon blooms, thermochromatic flowers that magically change to create a more dynamic bouquet than your regular flower shop variety.

The first type of bloom, made with a liquid crystal dye, changes at 27 degrees Celsius from “a deep satin black to Champagne bottle green exhibiting all the hues regularly seen on the backs of beetles,” according to Bompas & Parr's website. The second bloom changes hues at 31 degree Celsius. After being sprayed with a “perfumed crystal elixir,” it catches fire and reveals an underlying color.
