Should I get the Ulysse in Etoupe or wait for another color?

I love my Ulysse PM in Blue Electric, so I decided to get a Mini for writing down grocery lists.
I live three hours from the H store, so my SA said she can ship the Ulysse over to me along with some twillys.
The color options she has for me are Etoupe and Graphite. I was kind of hoping for a more colorful choice, but I do want to get a bag in Etoupe or Gris Tourterelle, so should I get it to kind of "sample" the color?
Or should I just tell her that I'll wait for another color?
I guess I could buy it from H.com, but I'm building up a relationship with this SA, so every little thing counts haha :smile:

I have just bought one in Bamboo as I knew this colour would be to bright a green for me in a bag , so it is a lovely pop of colour inside my bag.

I'd wait for what you love. If you are in a rush, H.com does sell coloured Ulysses from time to time.

I'd wait for a fun color. It's also easier to see in your bag. Don't buy from h.com, build your relationship.

Definitely wait for a brighter colour. I bought a very dull green (which to be fair would look great as a bag and I'd absolutely buy a bag in this colour) that I don't know the name of and it doesn't show on the original receipt from H, and I'm completely regretting it just because of the colour. I should've held out for something brighter - even orange. I am such a convert to bright SLGs as well!


I just recently picked up a Vision II in Bleu Izmir Epsom to use as a notebook which I adore and am loving the colour as well as the leather. The pockets on either side of this are great as I slide in receipts and other incidental papers I need.

The Ulysse is so great in a saturated colour (BE is wonderful - I have Bleu de Galice which I took instead of BE, now wish I had taken both :P ) - SLGs are a great place to enjoy colors you might not want in a whole bag (or which are not practical in a limited bag wardrobe). I would hold out.
That said, I have been looking for a purple one for months, and have tried boutiques, H.com, and Cuffs, so it may take a while.

Go wait for a brighter color! I have ulysse in blue electric, malachite and bamboo! I'm loving the pop colours.

Thank you, everyone! I've decided to wait for a brighter color. Told my SA, and she said she will look for something colorful for me! Thanks again, your advice was all very helpful :smile:
