This is a very sad post to write. The palissandro bow bag was my first true bag love. My first designer bag and the bag that started my passion. I babied it for years, have used it soo rarely, it was in perfect condition for a bag a few years old. But something happened. A while ago a perfume bottle broke inside of it, and I have tried EVERYTHING to remove the smell. I tried to get it professionally cleaned with no luck. I tried to wipe it again and again. I tried to let it hang outside every day and inside during the night. I tried the baking soda trick for weeks. I even tried an ionizing machine that they use to get smell out of car seats at the local mercedes benz... But this bag was not possible to restore. And yesterday I got the insurance money for it.
