I purchased a Balenciaga Velo bag, which I received in decent, but well-used shape with a clean inner lining. However, the leather was saturated with cigarette smoke, which as a non-smoker I'm very sensitive to and it set off my allergies. I tried hanging the bag in a well-ventilated area for a week hoping the scent would diminish, but once material like leather is exposed to cigarette smoke (and for all I know, the previous owner likely owned it for years) there is no removing it. Very disappointed. Had to pay return shipping on something I should have been made aware of before purchase. I'll stick with Ebay, at least there, sellers tell you if it comes from a smoke-free environment or not.
