So call my crazy but I am a little bummed......I anxiously awaited the FedEx truck's arrival today to deliver my BNIB direct from H black N stamp Birkin 30 in clemence with PHW.

As I opened up the box and pulled away the tissue expecting that LUSCIOUS leather smell.........nothing :huh:

I pulled lovely Miss B30 out of her dustbag and......nothing......even up close :sad:

Part of the excitement of H is that scrumptious smell! Am I crazy to be bummed out? Clemence is usually the best smelling one in my past experience with H.

Anyone else notice this with newer N stamped bags?

No. My N stamped clemence birkin smells like standard clemence. I've noticed in the past that even within a given year the scents associated with any given leather can vary.

I don't think I'd let it ruin your experience. That would be silly.

Ok, so I just spoke with my H manager that sold me the bag. He said H has changed their tanning process drastically recently as that is why you cannot smell the leather smell as strongly as on slightly older bags. He said the newer tanning process will greatly increase the longevity of the leather and help it to stand the test of time even more rigorously :smile:

Very interesting.......
