I love the box itself, but I ordered it in "light lavender", afterall what is more french than the lavender fields of Provence? However, it looks WHITE! I asked my fiance what color he thought it was and he said white, too. I even held it next to other purple colors to see if that made it look more purple, but nope. I have read other reviews that say the colors are inaccurate as well. It's also surprisingly weighty, so keep this in mind if you're hoping to keep it in your purse. Other than the color problem, it's cute and functional. I bought it to store my engagement ring in for when I go to the gym or am doing some other activity that I don't want my ring to get dirty or ruined on. However, I'm returning it because I detest the color. Unfortunately Birchbox is now out of the pistachio color. I'm ordering it directly from the manufacturer instead.
