caca d’oie — khaki color— Mot du Jour

caca d’oie – poop of goose. In everyday French, caca d’oie is the color khaki. Another way I hear to say caca d’oie is ‘réséda’, from the name of the eponym flower.

  • « J’ai mis ton écharpe caca d’oie sur la balustrade. »
    • “I put your khaki scarf on the railing .”
