Need your advice! Celine Cabas Phantom (Small) - Light Charcoal, Taupe or Black?

I am thinking to buy a Celine Cabas Phantom (Small) but can't decide the color. I've brought it down to three options - Light Charcoal, Taupe, or Black. I tried them all in a store and would want to have a lighter color instead. Unfortunately they don't have any other options. I want something that's classy, timeless, and easy to mix and match with my work clothes. Black seems to be too understated to me, and Taupe looks too mature(?). I think the Light Charcoal has a blue/purple tint in real life but it could be the store's lighting. So far I'm thinking to go Light Charcoal but still struggling. Have you seen this color (it should be this season's new color), and what do you think about it?

Many thanks!

I bought my cabas in light charcoal and this is STUNNING! Great middle grey. It's the bag on my profile. It's a bit lighter compared to my grey belt bag. I have no cons to say about the color and the bag.

OMG, they're all so gorgeous. I vote for all! Ha! Just bought a black one after wanting one for years. I have also eyed the taupe one for a long time, but that light charcoal is just beautiful. A great neutral that would stand out more than black and give a subtle punch to a neutral outfit!
