Both colors are great! I have an olive clemence evelyne and have found it to be a great neutral color. Ebene is darker, and just as beautiful.

Hi Ninah9 & welcome!You should take a good look in your closet to see what colors you own to see which one would suit your lifestyle better.Don't rush in deciding because you may regret your choice of color later,think it through.Unless of course everytime you look at one of the 2 & it makes your heart swoon then the answer is obvious.Ebene is a great neautral that almost looks black,& the olive one sounds lovely too.Good Luck!

Since it is your first birkin, get the dark colour ebene. This colour is classic and neutral. Easy to care too. You can always get pop colours for your next birkin.

Another vote for ebene here but do check which works best with your wardrobe

Sometimes unique doesn't always mean good, how does the olive work with the kind of colours you wear?

i do have the balenciaga in a very dark shade of olive, and i do wear it a lot actually.. but reconsidering, this is a hermes! so id want a colour which would suit and go with everything..

I would pick the olive for my first between those 2 - but that's just me. Good luck! And I would probably pick clemence over togo.
