nothing like the smell of a new car?? or a new bag?? forgive my messy desk, i got pinched by my co-worker today. i forgot!! so, i switched bags, but it didnt save me from getting pinched anyway. just got this bag yesterday, sight unseen , sent from Nordie's and was on sale., openned the box this morning... Smells Devine (even my fingers still smell of fresh suede leather) and feels .......... yummy soft! although the color name isn't all that yummy unless you like Vegetables "Asparagus" so green..in honor of St. Patricks Day.... What do you do with that tiny coin pouch on the side???
