Everyone, I've decided to return my Gaucho. I just can't deal with the smell. I don't know what the sales rep is going to think when I say this, but the smell has faded some, but it still stinks! I can't deal with that for that amount of money. Am I crazy to do this??? I just can't stand to be near the bag for any period of time because of it. I feel that I should love it, but I really don't. I just think "Ewwww..." I think I will go for a quilted Chanel instead.
