For what it’s worth… a few days ago I sent an inquiry to their customer service about the size of the Filt bag. They replied very quickly saying that they had received the wrong size from their vendor, and included the small bags to avoid further shipping delays — however, they had just received the correct shipment and would be putting in the mail a replacement (larger) bag. I would then ship back the small one with a prestamped label. If I receive it I will leave an update…

I finally received my box 7-days after it shipped. This is not the fault of Ouiplease. The USPS kept shipping it to the wrong post office, but the cookies arrived in crumbs. I ate them anyway, and thought they were so sweet, I couldn’t taste anything other than sugar in any other than the chocolate one.

The Rose et Marius tile was broken and in the wrong scent. I wouldn’t have cared about the wrong scent or the stale cookies, but I did email about the broken tile. Not sure if I’ll hear back.

I like the bag and it’s size. I’m also okay with the short necklace. The scarf is kind of ridiculous, not because it’s small, that’s the size of a neck scarf, but fabric is horribly thin. I use scarfs to wrap gifts, but this won’t work for that and there’s no way I’d wear that pattern as an adult.

Frankie

Finally received my box today (shipment email was from April 23)!

All in all I can’t complain, except for the scarf, which is not all what I expected. I posted longer comments before but MSA has not approved them yet.

To sum up, my box was well packed (it had a “fragile” sticker on the outer box), I received all my choices, and everything came in one piece, expect for the macarons which were crumbly. I agree that they are very sweet. They did not seem super fresh either, but they’ll get eaten either way.

My favorite items are the tile and the necklace. The pendant is a bit smaller than I thought, and the chain itself is a bit flimsy (my clasp seemed defective at first and I suspect it will break soon, but that’s replaceable), but it’s adorable.

The scarf (I picked the flechettes print) is too thin and small, however. I am disappointed, although I already knew it would be different from the spoiler image given all the comments here. I really wish they had not misrepresented it and am considering calling them out on it on Instagram. If I had known it was so small I would have probably chosen the blue print instead. But aside from that, misrepresentation is bad. For this reason alone I can never trust this company again.

The Filt bag I received (black and white) is smaller than I thought — I already own a mini Filt bag, which is actually bigger than this one! — but it is exactly as represented on the spoiler image when you compare the size of the label to the size of the bag. It’s not super tiny, and it will hold a few pieces of fruit. I wish we had been given accurate measurements though — had I know it was small I would have selected a more cheerful color. Also, a few subscribers who picked the pink color got a larger bag so this discrepancy seems strange.

I am pleased with the other items. Oh, and my nail polish came in its paper wrapper!

Frankie

I finally got my box today, about three weeks after my first “shipment” email. I received all my choices.
The box was actually very well packed (it had a “fragile” sticker on the outside), and nothing was missing or broken, expect for the macarons, which had an extra protective layer of bubble wrap but still got a bit broken in the shipment.

Comments: Les Nereides necklace, pretty, very delicate, I love it. I thought the pendant would be just a tad bigger from the photos, but it looks really adorable. However, I suspect that the clasp may break soon (it took a minute or two to actually get it open because it was stuck). It fits more like a choker on me, and my neck is fairly thin, but you can make it longer by clasping it close to the little Nereides tag. It would be very appropriate for a younger girl.

Scarf: what a joke! I got the flechettes print. I knew it would be small from the comments here, but it really looks like a handkerchief. Despite all the warnings I am still disappointed as this was the item that made me subscribe to the box in the first place. I wish they had included the measurements and the actual fabric content in the spoiler. This is essentially fraud. I thought the Soi Paris paper envelope in which it came was cute, though, and perfectly giftable if you wanted to give a handkerchief as a gift…

Bag: I got the black and white variation. I already own a blue and white mini Filt bag (you can buy them from Anthropologie) and the one that came in the OP box is smaller than the one I own! A mini mini? I thought it would be even smaller from the comments here, so I’m relieved it’s not minuscule. By the way, you can now buy them on the OP website and the size is advertised as 15 by 15. I may get in touch about that, especially because some people got a larger bag than this and I don’t think that’s fair for subscribers.

Tile: nice. I got the mint. Everything was in good condition and I look forward to using it.

Nail polish: mine actually came with its paper container, just as in the spoiler. I got the marilou, a lovely red color.

Eye cream: was it supposed to be sealed? Mine wasn’t. It appears new though.

Brush: a nice addition to my kitchen, it will definitely be used.

I bought an annual membership with a 30% coupon based on the spoilers for this box. The actual box cost me $76, and the combined value of the objects — even considering that the necklace’s advertised price of $130 is too high compared to prices for Les Nereides jewelry on their website, the scarf probably costs less than $10 and the bag is probably around $15 or less — does more or less exceed that amount. I am not too angry, but I would have never purchased a membership had I known that the spoilers misrepresented some of the items.

Taren

I emailed about my missing scarf and I got a reply a few days later that they would send one but that was a week ago and I haven’t heard anything since.

DawnS

Oh and also about the scarf. I got the one with the arrows and bullseyes like the gal is holding in the picture. Except it is half the size or less and does not have a blue trim like the picture.

DawnS

Guess in reading all of the new comments I am with everyone else. This was my first shipment with this company.

First I was surprised there was no literature on anything, for the price I expected a booklet describing the region or the items or the makers but NOTHING.

The necklace is very pretty and I will wear it. My tile was in great condition and I got the mint scent I prefer so that makes me happy and my cube at work smells nice.

The scarf and bag are so very small its a big let down, I was really looking forward to both of them. The bag’s size is that of maybe a small brown paper bag my mom used to use for our lunches as kids. The scarf being mostly cotton, made in CHINA and the size of a hanky just makes me sad.

The cookies are demolished and kind of smell like the tile did as the packaging is not sealed. The nail polish is pale lilac with no packaging and no other information on it so I won’t use it on my nails as I do not know know if it 5 free, the color is not my thing anyway.

The eye gel will get used but it is very light and I will need something heavier at night or on top of it but it will get used. The vegetable brush will be gifted, its ok but I have nicer ones.

Over all I feel like I should reach out to Oui about the scarf, bag and cookies. But I am not sure as others have had problems with customer service in the past. I did know in reading prior reviews that some of the boxes can be disappointing, and liking a few items might be the best I can get out of this sub. I guess the lesson I learned is to wait on purchase until folks start leaving their experiences with the box then decide.

Taren

Hi DawnS, I’m a long term subscriber and I agree with a lot of your issues as well. But a few of your questions I can answer: communication is not their strong point. The info brochure is now online only, so all the the companies and items can be looked up on their website. (I know, I don’t like it either, printouts are easier)
The nail polish is 5 free, actually I think the description was 6 free lol, the nailmatic company is reputable and safe, please don’t worry as far as that goes. The scarf….. mine was missing. I’ve emailed about it. They replied several days later saying they’d send one, I’m still waiting on shipping info a week later. I’ve found that this box will have some of my most beloved, favorite items that I keep and use long term, and a few duds. Overall the value outweighs the issues for me, but the irksome bait and switch issues are annoying and part of their MO.

DawnS

Thank you! I really appreciate your incite!
The scarf not being 100% silk I can deal with and I guess I will just cut off the made in china part then I should be able to find some use for it. I am sorry so many folks did not get theirs.
The value you are right is there even with the items I was bummed about. I will keep looking at this box.

Frankie

I’m still waiting for my box to move (label created two weeks ago!). Is anybody else on this thread still waiting? I wonder if I should contact my CC at this point.

Tara

I just had mine shipped the middle of last week and it was here Monday (Canada). Once it actually moves, it’s quick. And I have to say that a lot of people are complaining they didn’t receive what was advertised. My cookies made in to me intact, and my bag (pink) was the right size.

Allison

I am HIGHLY skeptical of the positive reviews I’m reading on here. I can’t believe there are individuals who are thrilled to have crushed macaroons and misrepresented items.

beccaox

macaroons – broken / no longer giftable for mothers day

scarf – not silk and smaller than usual scarves but that’s ok with me as I was only going to use in hair as they pictured

bag – WOW what a joke!!! it is so small!!!! like so small i wouldn’t even bother to bring it out of the house. very sad as this is what I was looking forward to most!! glad I didn’t get excited and start swapping for more

nail polish – no box. not a big deal

.11 – seal was lifting up on the box – not a big deal but kinda weird it sounds like a lot were like that

necklace – BEAUTIFUL – I don’t care that it is short but I can see there being an issue as all necks are not the same and could cause this to be unusable to some

tile- haven’t opened yet, fingers crossed it is not broken as some reported

scrubber – no issues and I love it! will swap for more!!

All&All – items should come as advertised. if there won’t be a box, don’t show us pics of it coming in the box. if it is only 20% silk, don’t advertise a silk scarf (or at least state its % or that it is partially silk). if the scarf/bag is small, show pics of the actual size were getting, not a larger one. I understand sometimes food gets damaged in transit depending on how gentle the postal people are, but it sounds like they are all/most being received damaged which makes me think they were already like that. either way, perhaps putting “fragile” stickers/stamps will let the postal workers know to be a little more gentle.

overall i loved my box, but i will be reaching out due to the number of issues. Hopefully, the bag can get corrected as that is what im most bummed about.

Mary

My box finally arrived, and I have mixed feelings.

The bag and scarf were definitely misrepresented. The main photos they used to advertise the bag show long handles that could possibly go over your shoulder. Our bag is small with tiny handles. The scarf is definitely not the same one the model is holding either. On first glance, mine looks like a thin, cotton handkerchief rather than a silk scarf.

Macaroons are a bit beat up, but I haven’t tried them yet. We’ll assume they taste fine though. 😉 Necklace has a very short, thin chain but the pendant is pretty. Everything else looks good. I think the tile might actually be my favorite thing.

Slightly regretting my decision to buy an annual membership, but I guess with the coupon I used, I still got my money’s worth even if some items were a bit of a letdown.

DonnaG

I still haven’t decided on buying this box. How long is the necklace?
It just sounds to me that I would be disappointed with all the same things.
I just don’t like it when the items turns out to not be what is pictured.
It is ‘bait and switch’ to me. It happened to me once with BofS and I was just so disappointed. This is at a higher price point too.

Mary

The necklace is not quite a choker, but it’s close. I’m wondering if I can find a longer chain for it.

Really, I don’t think I could recommend this box to anyone because of the bait and switch tactics. I’m sure what they have done is illegal, but I don’t know that I would want to devote the time and energy to getting them to take responsibility though. It’s frustrating.

Frankie

I’m still waiting for my box to ship. My label was created on 4/23. Anybody else in the same boat?

Mary

I was until yesterday and now it looks like my box is on its way.

Mary

My tracking number still says “Expected to ship Tuesday — 4/23/2019.” Making me sad Oui Please. 🙁

Lauren

Received my box and it is wonderful! I love it all. The bag is small but adorable. The quality of the items is there. I got all my choices. The scarf is definitely for the neck or hair. I got the blue one and it looks like the one in the photo. Very happy with the items I felt like I opened a box from France! Great quality French items.

Kristin

I just received my box and I am so bummed….the box was missing the scarf and one of the macarons was completely smashed and I was planning to gift this. However, the necklace is beautiful. I was definitely surprised at the size of the filt bag, but it will still get used.

Taren

I’m missing my scarf also. It’s looking as though after reading the comments that a lot of people are missing their scarves. If that’s the case, this looks deliberate rather than accidental which is frustrating. Hopefully they will get back to me and correct this. I spent a lot of money up front .

Mary

My scarf was in a pink envelope instead of a box. I almost didn’t open it at first because I thought it was just some literature. The scarf itself is tiny — really handkerchief size.

Ashley

Mine is missing the scarf as well. I’m going to contact Ashley and see how that goes.

Airian

I received my box yesterday and I have to say I absolutely love it! The necklace is beautiful as all Les Nereides are, the macaroons were all a little broken but I was going to eat them anyway and they taste amazing!!! The French vanilla one is my favorite! I got the blue tile in mint, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it but it smells good and it was perfect when I opened it. The scarf is small just like the pictures of the tiger and La Mer but part of me was expecting it since there are two pictures of the correct size vs the one big scarf to show the brand. The bag is smaller but so cute! I chose the pink one and it’s gorgeous! I feel the bag will hold enough stuff since the material expands. I received the orange nail polish (without box). I like that my girls can safely use it as it is non-toxic. I feel this was a solid box, with amazing products and I’m very impressed with Ouiplease. Ashley has always been polite and very responsive. And the products we receive are different from all the other subscriptions that we keep getting.

Jerilynn

I got my box today and overall I am happy with it. I would note that the necklace is more like a choker on me, but beautiful. It looks lovely on my very small daughter. As others mentioned, the scarf and bag are smaller than expected but are still lovely. Unfortunately, 3 of my 6 macarons are smashed, but I bet they will still taste good! I do think Ouiplease has upped their game and I am getting my monies worth and the quality I expected. Also, am very pleased these shipped on time and all my choices were right!

LisaMarie

I received my box today and am disappointed. The filt bag is tiny. It may hold 2 small oranges if I tried to stuff it. The photos above make it appear to be a larger bag. Did anyone else receive a tiny bag or are yours as depicted in the photos?

DawnS

Totally tiny, I actually was unable to put all of the contents of the box in it as the tile box and macarons were too big to fit.

Kelly H

I received my box today, my first oui please box. Once I received the shipping email, it arrived in less than a week. Everything is in perfect condition and I’m really pleased with the curation – so different than what I’ve received in other boxes. Both the scarf and the market bag are smaller than expected (la mer scarf), but I can tie the scarf like in the picture and the color of my bag (pink) is gorgeous. I recd a peachy nail polish and the lavender tile smells wonderful. I cannot wait to use everything and would order from them again. Hope everyone else likes their box.

Meg

Did anyone’s necklace come in a gift box as show above in the spoilers? Mine just came tangled in a fabric bag. I was hoping to give this as a mother’s day gift but it’s not going to work w/out the pretty box.

Taren

Hi, mine has always arrived in floral print fabric drawstring bags with the name printed on it. I’ve been subbing for 2+ years and it’s been that way at long as I’ve been with them. But the bag is quite pretty and I can’t imag being turned off by receiving it as a gift. Hope that helps. 🙂

Lisa

The Les Nereides jewelry always comes in the small fabric bags. I’ve never gotten a piece in a box.

Meg

Then maybe don’t show the box in the spoilers.

Meg

I just received my box today and am pretty disappointed. So many of the spoiler photos are pretty misleading.
The Filt Bag. The photos of the bag w/ the model and the fruits is a large bag. The bag received is a mini bag (probably same as what’s shown in the color choice photos). But why show the large bag at all.
The gift box shown with necklaces in the above spoiler photos is not included. The necklace comes tangled in a fabric bag. So much for gifting this for mother’s day.
The scarf is small. I (wrongly) assumed it would be the size shown in the photo for the les flechettes print. However, the la mer scarf I received barely wraps around my head – it’s about 17 inches square the fiber content is 20% silk/80% cotton not really the silk scarf they advertised.
Not a big deal but the nail polish does not come packed as shown above. Why show the package if it’s not part of the deal? I received the orange color.
I think this is too many misleading images for it not to be intentional. This was my first Oui Please box and probably my last.

Nicole R

I agree – super disappointing and misleading at best. My macrons were a crumbled mess and my Rose et Marius tile is broken in half and unusable. Plus, my eye cream seal isn’t sealed. I took pictures and opened a support issue – will see how that goes. I’m halfway through my second annual sub and have had only a few minor issues (and none that were worth reporting, i.e. wrong item sent or missing lip balm). I guess my number was up…

Meg

Just wondering about the size of the scarves. I received La Mer and it’s small ~ 17 inches square. The photo of the les flechettes print above shows a a much larger scarf. Does the scarf size vary by print?

Frankie

The photos of the scarfs are taken from the Soi Paris website, and there the scarfs are listed as being 80×80 cm (31 x 31 inches). I haven’t received my box yet but if the scarf included in your box is significantly smaller then my hunch is that we are not getting the same scarfs that Soi Paris sells, but rather smaller versions with the same fabric, made specifically for OP. Also, the Soi Paris scarfs should be 100% silk. Is your La Mer scarf silk or silk-cotton?

Meg

The scarf I received (la mer print) is 80% cotton 20% silk and more kerchief sized than scarf size. Definitely not what I expected in both size and fabric.

Frankie

Scarves!! Sorry for the typo 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

Meg

I just received my box today and am pretty disappointed. So many of the spoiler photos are very misleading.
1. The Filt Bag. The photos of the bag w/ the model and the fruits is a large bag. The bag received is a mini bag (probably same as what’s shown in the color choice photos). But why show the large bag at all. 2. The gift box shown with necklaces in the above spoiler photos is not included. The necklace comes tangled in a fabric bag. So much for gifting this for mother’s day.
3. The scarf is small. I (wrongly) assumed it would be the size shown in the photo for the les flechettes print. However, the actual scarf I received (blue color) barely wraps around my head – it’s about 17 inches square the fiber content is 20% silk/80% cotton not really the silk scarf they advertised. Maybe the other colors were larger and I just chose poorly?
4. Not a big deal but the nail polish does not come packed as shown above. Why show the package if it’s not part of the deal? I received the orange color.
I think this is too many misleading images for it not to be intentional. This was my first Oui Please box and probably my last.

Shannon

Received my box today. I am so very pleased. Everything was better than expected! This is my favorite box that I have received in a long time.
The curation is amazing and Ashley has always provided wonderful customer service. Bravo to Oui Please!

Meg

I just received my box today and I’m disappointed. The spoiler photos are totally misleading. #1. The Filt bag in the photos with the model and the oranges is a large bag. The bag received is a small bag which looks to be what is shown in the color examples. But why show the big bag at all. #2 Since they show a gift box with necklaces I (wrongly) assumes the necklace would come in a box. It came tangled in a cloth bag. So much for gifting it. #3 The scarf is SMALL. I assumed it would be the size shown in the Les Flechettes photo but it’s barely large enough to tie around my head. Oh, and it doesn’t come in a box as show but a paper envelope. #4 As others have already stated the nail polish doesn’t come in a box… as shown in the photo above.
That’s just too much false advertising for my taste. This was my first Oui box and most likely my last.

Frankie

Thanks @meishiru. Keeping fingers crossed! It’s my first box and was excited with the choices for the scarf and necklace, but from other comments it looks like not everybody ends up getting their selection.
Mine is still in pre-shipment, when I get it I’ll comment here… 🙂
