Thanks! I see, so its relatively new... Maybe thats why its smelly.
Yes... It probably just needs time to let the "new" smell wear off. Monogram Canvas is cotton coated with lots and lots of chemicals and leather is naturally strong smelling and the glazing also has a glue scent. You could practically get high off of the stuff these things are made out of!

Yeah, it smells like the hospital! lol. I got it a couple of days ago, I am still airing it out. I am hoping it goes away so I don't have to go return or exchange it.
That is a great description of the smell. Gag, bet that is it then. Should go away from yours too then. :smile:

It's most likely the smell of the materials that they use to manufacture it. I bet people with these smell problems will have date codes that are closer to the date of purchase than the date codes of people who don't have any smell issues are.
You're right. Mine is recently made. :smile: Glad it fades because phew!

I've taken a whiff off of newly-made pieces and they never had that chemically odor, instead it was more of a pleasant leather smell with a hint of new car. It seems to be hit or miss since it spans most of the canvas line (mono and DE being the worst from what I've personally experienced) over several different creation dates.
The verdict also seems to be out on whether the odor fades with use/time or not...I don't think it does but that's probably because I'm so sensitive to it and it just clings to everything else around it.

When I called LV, the lady on the phone said that it will go away. I am airing it out still, giving it a few more days. It has gotten better, but if it still smells in a few days, I will prbly go return it. SAD FACE.

I returned mine today for store credit... now just have to figure out what to buy with that money!!

Ugh! Why are these pieces smelly??? It's driving me crazy!
I just received an Emilie wallet in the mail from LV and it also smells horrible. I have had it two days now but am debating on taking it into the store to exchange it. The smell is horrible!!

My Alma BB Degrade has a leathery/chemical smell, it was made 6th week 2017, so still fairly factory fresh. Is it odd i quite like the smell?!

Is it really the item that smells or the box? I purchased a zcp recently and it has smell too. Took it out of the box and discovered that it is the box that smell!
