White trim color?

Can anyone recommend their white Benjamin Moore trim color in the white family. A very helpful woman at the store was showing me all the different whites and my head was spiinning.
I've heard Decorator's White is popular but that had a gray undertone to it I wasn't a fan.
There is just a White - or a Simply White that I liked a little better.
White Dove I know is popular but looked a little cream to me and I really want a white.

Any suggestions is appreciated.

TIA!

We use Behr paint. If you go to Home Depot, you can get a swatch and bring it to BM to match. The color we used for for all our trim, crown moldings and baseboard moldings is called Ultra Pure White.

We used Behr from Home Depot and went with Linen White in a semi gloss (my walls are eggshell).

It's not bright white. It's softer.

All moulding, trim, baseboards and wainscoting are done in that color

Our builder used BM China White...it's nice. I guess I would describe it as a "muted white"? It's definitely not a bright white.

I think we used BM Super White for the trim color. it is a somewhat bright white, which is what we were going for.

I'm not a fan of decorators white, it has a grayish cast

We just painted our den and entry area BM revere pewter. We did the trim BM vanilla milkshake! I LOVE how it came out so much, that I am using it in the bedrooms too!

I'm a big fan of BM Super White. We have alot of bold colors in the house, and I found Super White to be a very pure white, no tints or hues or casts to it. The SW also looks nice against creams and pale colors, it really pops.
