This is my first post. I'm not sure if this is the right to place to post this question, but here it goes. Does anyone out there know how to get the smell of leather out of a bag? The bag in question is a brand new Salvatore Ferragamo black leather bag (pepple leather, as opposed to smooth leather, if you know what I mean.) I bought it from the South Coast Plaza Ferragamo store in Southern California although technically the bag was shipped to me from the store in San Francisco because the Costa Mesa store did not have it in black. It's got an awful smell that makes my head ache and causes whom ever I'm next to to inquire, "What is that awful smell?" I have another Ferragamo, same type leather, but different color that does not smell. I don't think I can return it because it was bought on sale, although I still paid around $800.00 for it. The sales girl did mention the sale was final. I was willing to risk not liking the purse in black since I hadn't seen it at the time of sale, but no way did I think there would be an awful stench to deal with. Any suggestions will be welcomed. Also, am curious to know if anyone out there has a Ferragamo that smells badly. And if there is no way to make the smell go away, what do you think my chances are on getting it returned? Thank you very much.
