Was not as expected
I had a color chart and what arrived was lighter than on the chart. Not the finish i expected at all really is way to light.

Soft warm grey with a pinky/lilac tinge
I originally wanted to use Pavilion Gray in my sitting room, but it looked surprisingly blue next to my browny grey sofa. Elephant's Breath is perfect, although I was worried when I put the first coat on as it looked decidedly "pink". After a second coat it proved to be a warm, sophisticated soft grey, and although that pink/lilac tinge is still there it is quite muted. (This is in a well lit room south/north facing with a window at each end).
Two coats were enough to cover the original cream wall cover. Very pleased.

Very good subtle colour which can be used in many colour schemes.
Having gone through 70ltrs of Elephant's Breath estate emulsion in the last week, my painters have enjoyed using it. The initial coat soaked in and they were surprised how much was needed, but this is what gives F&B the depth of colour they are renowned for. I have used Elephant's Breath many times and have always been pleased with the end result. Great colour which takes on different hues with changing light and different contrasting colours.

Lovely restful colour which has made less than perfect surfaces look good
I used this colour for woodwork and walls on surfaces that left a lot to be desired. The imperfections have all but disappeared. It is also a lovely restful colour for a bedroom.

A versatile colour!
This colour will breathe a warm contemporary feel into any room. It showcases paintings beautifully. A colour I have used in many homes I have lived in around the world.

We live in Switzerland, and I was really trying to find some beautiful "greige" colors for our house here locally.... But Swiss do not do greige! It is either white, or... egg-shell white, for radicals. And no sample sizes, sorry. So I was just amazed at the customer service and ease of order from F&B - tried out several samples first, decided on Elephants Breath for the main order, everything arrived in a blink, and the color is really gorgeous (I used it for bedroom, it looks very well with dimmed lights). My sister-in-law from the UK said that the painters in Britain consider it to be too "thin", i.e. needing more coats than other producers. I can say it is not true - and, highly recommended!

I was looking for a grayish lilac and this was perfect. All the other paint brands were too heavy on the lilac. I used the mid-tones primer and two top coats. The paint went on easily - we have old plaster walls. This is a great colour, which can really act as a neutral. Just beware that this is not a gray - you will get the lilac tones as well. Definitely get a sample pot and test it in various different areas and lights. Our room is south facing, so gets a lot of sunlight and it appears lighter because of that.
