I just received my new damier speedy today and the bag smells much stronger than the previous mono speedy which I returned already.

Does damier canvas has a stronger leather-like smell than mono?

Thanks!:confused1::confused1:

In fact, i heard that the smell is one way to authenticate LV.:smile: not sure about it, may be the pros here could tell us more.

I bought an Azur Sayley and it actually has a new car smell. I bought it off of ebay and had it authenticated first. Very weird to me. It was the only bag I ever bought with that smeill.

I purchased a Damier multiple wallet and it smells... however, I did get it heat-stamped so don't know if that made a difference but i could have sworn when I held it in the store before i couldn't smell anything... but after a few months the smell has pretty much gone away.

weird - I've never noticed a smell, not even from my vernis piece....
Well I didn't "notice it" until someone here said it smelled like varnish. I whipped out my newest Vernis and sure enough I smelled the varnish. But it's not overwhelming or anything and I have to pick it up and sniff it to smell it, which is not something I enjoy doing, so ...
