My Stylish French Box is a quarterly lifestyle box that sends authentic and stylish items all the way from France! The box is curated by Sharon Santoni, an author and the blogger behind My French Country Home. This box is based in France and they work directly with highly coveted and timeless French brands to create a box that will help chic up your home and self.

What Is My Stylish French Box?

A selection of 6-8 French products, curated around a theme, and chosen for you and your home.  All products are full sized and truly French.  Many brands are only available in France.  The price you pay will always be lower than the US retail value, and it includes shipping to your door (small surcharge for shipping to Australia and New Zealand).

My items were shipped directly from France and came in a reusable white box. The box has a hidden magnetic closure and it makes a good storage box. It’s simple and I like that I can reuse it. I opened it up to find my products wrapped in tissue paper with a satin ribbon around the parcel.

My Stylish French Box is $255 a quarter. A one-time, non-recurring gift box shipment is $265, while a year’s prepaid subscription brings the price down to $245 a box. Shipping is free to the USA and other countries, with Australia and New Zealand paying an additional $15. This box was sold out but they decided to do a second production so there are some left until they run out. In that case, if you order, your first box will be in February. There are a couple of exceptional one-time boxes available on the site.

I found a big brochure inside. This was similar to a magazine and it is beautifully done.

The theme for this quarter’s box was French Holiday Entertaining!

Each product had its own page with a brief description.

There was info on their ambassador program.

If you want even more info on the French country lifestyle, look for the My French Country Home magazine!

The next box will ship in February 2020!

My items were tucked into boxes and arrived in perfect condition.

Everything in my box! I must say the experience of opening this box and learning about each item is magnificent! It is an elegant box and would make a super special box for yourself, or an exceptional gift for a friend or loved one.

Each box this year has had an exclusive print from artist Jean-Jacques Sempé. Most of the table is busy looking at the bottle of champagne while the elegant woman on the right is checking out the plate. I certainly can identify with that lady!

The back of the print has a description of the scene.

Liquid Hand Soap From La Savonnerie Royale in Pétales d’églantine ($14.21) The fragrances in this line are inspired by Versailles (I love Versailles!) and this scent in particular is in honor of Marie-Antoinette, who loved roses. It isn’t drying but it will make your hands smell lovely for quite a while, the scent is long lasting. It smells like a classic floral perfume.

My Stylish French Box sends timeless, classic jewelry.

Lisbon Necklace By Gisel B (95€, around $105.56 USD) I can tell I’m going to like this a lot!

The necklace is gold-plated and features a cultured pearl.

I have never encountered a rectangle chain such as this before. The necklace is about 19″ long.

I am torn between keeping this for myself and gifting it to my daughter, since the pearl is her birthstone. It is a beautiful, elegant necklace.

Silk Scarf By Maracadabou (Similar styles are 50€, about $55.29 USD) While I have never been able to master the art of wearing a scarf, I do like to tie them onto a fancy handbag, or even a not so fancy handbag, which instantly becomes fancier the second I tie one on.

The print is an exclusive for My Stylish French Box. The scarf is about 21″ square and is made of 100% silk in France.

Linen Pochette By Lelinge is an exclusive design for this box. The design is called Winter Frost and the pouch is made of linen. It is 10″ x 8″ so it is big enough to work as a small purse, or you can tuck toiletries inside for a trip.

There is a zipper pull and the inside of the bag is lined with fabric.

Gilded Olive Stake by Au Bain Marie (25€, around $27.69 USD) Don’t let the size fool you, this is a solid ornament that would look beautiful in holiday centerpieces.

The branch is 7″ tall and has leaves and olives and beautiful golden accents.

My Stylish French Box always sends an antique item like this set of two Antique Teaspoons (find similar item here, $43.28 for a set of four).

The style is similar to the set I bought when I was married!

They are not identical but are similar, and both have a kind of makers mark on the inside bowl.

Even the backs are fancy! I can imagine using these to stir my tea, or to make something as mundane as cereal a special treat.

Candle Set From L’Artisan Parfumeur ($99) The next item can be broken down into three separate items, in case you are looking for a luxurious gift for someone during the holidays.

We received three individually wrapped candles!

The candles are $33 each and you can mix and match your own set, although only two of the scents were available at the time of this post.

The scents are spicy and warm (THÉ ET PAIN D’ÉPICES, my favorite of the bunch), rich and deep (VOYAGE À CONSTANTINOPLE), and sweet and rich (BOIS D’ORIENT).

These are polite candles, so they won’t perfume the whole house, but they are lovely in small spaces and smell amazing.

Boissier Paris Heart Chocolates ($11.09) Subscribers received a bonus sweet treat and I found these adorable little hearts (some received truffles).

Ingredients were listed on the bottom of the box.

Aren’t they charming? They reminded me of dark chocolate M&M’s with a thicker shell. I would pop a couple in my mouth each time I sat down to blog and let them slowly melt.

My Stylish French Box consistently sends high-quality, luxurious finds that are generally only found in that magnificent country. They smell amazing, they feel sumptuous, and in the case of the chocolates, they taste decadent. Each item is beautiful to look at and would make a stylish addition to a home or wardrobe. They also make splendid gifts for someone special. Although I couldn’t find values for all of the items, I still came up with a value of at least $334.84 for the items I could find, not including shipping from France. That is fantastic!

    Does this box offer spoilers or is every box a random surprise? I generally like surprises, but not at this price point.

      Hi Cindy, great question! According to the My Stylish French Box site, they will tease the theme but the fun is in the surprise. Just to let you know, the February box is already sold out and they are now taking orders for the May box.
