Agree! I've also stayed away from bags that have a "perfume" smell on it because one perfume may smell lovely to some and make others want to gag so I don't chance it.+1
I cannot stand the smell and it's not something that can be removed easily or entirely, imo.
Nah...I would stay away. Smoke smells stays and is hard to get rid of. Also by trying to clean it or spray with other chemicals might make it worse. I say hold out.... Deals come all the time just have to sit and be patient.You can definitely get rid of it but its not easy. If the bag is SUPER discounted and otherwise in good condition, it may be worth it. My keepall smelt like smoke once (not from me, yuck) and it took a while but I scrubbed the inside with hot soapy water and stuck it in the sun to dry in the hot summer. Smells fresh now.
