Does Your New Louis Vuitton Replica Smell Like Chemicals? Don’t Worry, Authentic Bags Stink Sometimes Too!

Louis Vuitton

Yesterday I posted an article on LV replica bags and something in my friend’s review caught my attention. Everything about her Louis Vuitton replica Neverfull was great, the quality was impeccable but the bag had a “plastic smell” to it.

Louis Vuitton Replica Smell

This is not uncommon for replica bags but my point is that this sometimes happens with authentic bags too!

I don’t know if you remember this or not, but there was a similar scandal regarding authentic Hermes Birkin bags as well. People started complaining about their Hermes bags having a skunk smell and that the smell became unbearable every time the bag was exposed to direct sunlight. The brand proved to have a bad customer service but this is not what I want to discuss today. The real problem was that these bags that cost thousands of dollars literally stank! For more details here is the article:http://www.spotbags.cn/hermes-replica-handbags-vs-authentic-hermes-bags-stinky-issue/

Hermes Birkin Stink Scandal

Hermes Birkin Stink Scandal

But the same thing happened with Louis Vuitton bags as well a few years ago. People started talking their canvas LV bags having a strong “chemical” smell or even “fishy” smell to them because they’re made of coated fabric, not leather.

So you see, the whole story with authentic LV bags smelling like Heaven and LV replica bags smelling like Hell is not always true. Because based on just the smell, those bags could have been considered fake even if they were actually not. Because in the end both authentic LVs and fake Louis Vuitton bags are made of treated materials that can sometimes smell stronger than they should.

Louis Vuitton Bags Smell Problem

It really amused me that some considered this to be a minor problem and recommended to air the bag until the smell faded out while others considered this to be offensive. The reason why this was amusing to me is that I imagined what these people have said if those would have been Louis Vuitton replica handbags instead. Would the attitude have been the same or much more exaggerated?

What I’m trying to say here is that:
1. Not even authentic bags aren’t always perfect, so don’t expect replica bags to be perfect either.
2. Don’t judge a Louis Vuitton replica or any other replica by the way it smells. Just because the leather or the canvas were treated it doesn’t mean you should throw out that bag. Because you see, sometimes the solution is actually really simple!

So if you just got a new Louis Vuitton replica that has a smell to it, don’t panic! In most cases it’s very easy to get rid of the smell and it’s just a matter of days. It usually just needs airing and the smell is gone!

If the smell doesn’t go away that easy, here are some other tricks you can use for LV replica handbags made of canvas but also for replica bags made of leather. You can put some baking soda inside the bag or apply some moisturizing cream and leave the bag outside for a few days or you can spray some perfume on a piece of cloth or a little Febreeze and put it inside the bag. Also, you can use a small box of baking soda for a week along with activated charcoal to suck up the smell. I’ve also heard that cedar chips might do the trick. If none of these methods works, then you should probably start thinking your Louis Vuitton replica.

But remember, if this has happened to Hermes and Louis Vuitton, the most luxurious brands in the world, don’t be surprised or offended that it sometimes happens with replica bags too!

A good quality Louis Vuitton Montaigne replica bag will be available only in the following materials Monogram Empreinte in Earth, Noir and Iris colors, or in Monogram Canvas. Any other color or material variation will be a clear sign that the product is a fake.

Other things you should really pay attention at are the quality of the leather and the markings. For instance, is the leather firm enough to stand tall by its own even when it is empty? What is the overall look of the leather? It is shinny or matte? A shinny leather is another sign that the LV Montaigne is a replica.  The leather should be matte, delicate and the monogram motifs should be embossed deeply into the fabric. Regarding the markings, look at them closely and make sure that these are in the correct font and style as on the original bag. Again, you can use the images from the original site to run your comparison.

Louis Vuitton Capucines Replica Bag

Louis Vuitton

I know that Louis Vuitton bags are the best purses on the market, but this is not the reason I am in love with them. I love them because they are beautiful, because they have a unique design, because there are not others like these ones. Of course most of the LV bags you can see on the street are replicas, but this is not an issue, the real problem is how good the replica is and does it worth the money? I know a copy cannot be original but it has to get as close at it can to the real thing. It has to look the same, to feel the same, to smell the same and all these qualities require a lot of attention and devotion.

A good copy of the Louis Vuitton Capucines is indeed very hard to find because this is a much demanded bag and most replica manufacturers pay more attention to the quantity than the quality. This is not something that enchants us but there is nothing much to do than tell you what you should look for when you buy a Louis Vuitton Capucines Replica Bag.

The one I going to talk about today is a very good replica. It was purchased from PurseValley and these guys really know what a replica should be like. The leather is black, thick and firm, the bag can easily stand on its own and even when it is empty it does not bend. On the front of the bag you can see the LV letters made from a gold metal and covered in black leather. They look very real and beautiful. The handle is sturdy too, it has a nice look and it feels great when holding it. It is connected to the bag through two round pieces of metal that are also gold and covered in black leather. On these rings that connect the handle to the bag there are some studs that perfectly imitate the original ones. The inside of the purse is nice too. It is made of good quality pink leather, just like the original one. There is a very useful zipped pocket and a simple one inside the bag. The zipper runs smoothly and looks exactly like the original. Inside the Louis Vuitton Capucines Replica Bag we can find the text: “LOUIS VUITTON” “PARIS” and also “made in France” embossed on the black leather and the serial number embossed on the pink leather. The stitching is good with no imperfections.

Overall this is a very nice replica bag, one that definitely worth the purchasing. Even if it is very hard to find a good looking Louis Vuitton Capucines Replica Bag I think it deserves a little more time to search for it. I have to say that Capucines is an awesome bag.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane

Replica Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas HavaneBag Front

Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane is the perfect example of style and grace. It is more than an elegant purse. It is the irresistible merge of precious materials and unimaginably refined lines. The LV Pallas allures us with the most seductive mix of Monogram canvas, natural cowhide leather trim and colored calf leather. It tempts us with a distinctive design and a comfortable feel.

The Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane is a very functional and luxurious tote purse made from the Iconic LV brown coated canvas. There are many color variations for this model and these refer to the supple calf leather used on the V shaped top of the bag: Pink, Clementine, Amethyste, Pistache, Havane, Aurore, Cerise, Quetsche, Noir and Saffran. This upper part of the LV Pallas reveals secured compartments and enhances its feminine design and accentuated functionality.

Louis Vuitton Pallas Monogram measures 13.4″ x 10.2″ x 4.7″ and the Havana version is actually a lighter shade of brown. I like this color best as it manages to perfectly represent the emblematic elegance and simplicity of the iconic LV brand.

The Pallas Havana replica from these pictures is one of the best representations I have seen so far. I was impressed with the quality of the monogram canvas that has a very authentic shine and texture. When you touch it, it feels very supple and durable. Also, the pattern printed on the canvas fabric is very exact, featuring an exact reproduction of the LV logo and flower motifs.

The Louis Vuitton Pallas Monogram bag has a rectangle shape while the sides are small triangles that allow the purse to expand or contract depending on the volume of the things you need to carry inside. The purse isn’t small at all. It is quite large, perfect for accommodating all the things you need for keeping an active life style. By all means, it is a very functional and versatile bag, the accessory that every city gal needs in her closet.

Tote bags are very practical and very comfortable, but lately most of these come with a snap closing tab or hook. I hate it when my things are so exposed to unwanted eyes or hands. Luckily, the LV Pallas Monogram Havane has a zipper closing system. The V shaped top part of the bag reveals a gold color thick and durable double zip closure. As you can see in the photos, my LV replica has the same type of zipper that safely closes the bag. The zipper is made from a beautifully crafted gold metal, very think and sturdy.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane Close Up

The original LV Pallas purse comes with natural cowhide Toron Leather handles. This type of handles are nicely rounded and sewn on the inside to offer an extra robustness and a defined arched shape. Also, as a dramatic effect, the inside margins of the handles are red color. The Palas Monogram Havane replica I have purchased has the same type of Toron leather handles that manage to look pretty authentic and elegant. In addition, the handles are attached to the bag by two rectangular thick metallic plates that are engraved with the circled R, “LOUIS VUITTON and “PARIS” written on different rows. This authenticity marking can be seen also on the real bag.

Fake Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane Inside

At the inside, the purse has a delicate microfiber lining in the same color as the colored calf leather used on the top part of the bag. In the case of my replica, at the inside there is a brown smooth textile fabric that looks very nice and genuine. Just like the original Pallas, this LV fake has two interior pockets that are perfect for accommodating your smart phones.

Fake Monogram Pallas Havane Zipper

If you are more of a shoulder bag type then you will be pleased to find out that the Louis Vuitton Pallas comes with a beautiful adjustable and removable Monogram canvas strap. You can adjust its length to fit your height and body construction by using a gold buckle. My fake Pallas Havana also came with this very useful strap and I have already tried it on. It feels very comfortable and light, but I prefer the tote handles instead.

The most important thing on a fake bag is getting the authenticity markings right and it looks like this Pallas fake has succeeded in correctly imitating all the LV logos. The most visible one is the one embossed on the colored calf leather on the upper part of the bag. Just like on the real product, my replica correctly reads out the circled R letter, “LOUIS VUITTON” and “PARIS”. Next, at the inside there is a squared leather tab in the same color as the leather handles that says “LOUIS VUITTON”, “PARIS” and “Made in France”. And the most subtle ones are the stamping of all the metallic pieces with the Louis Vuitton name and initials. Luckily, my knockoff successfully passed this test as well.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane Imitation Purse

The stitching on the LV Pallas Monogram isn’t that obvious and pronounced. The colors of the threads are carefully selected as to be in similar tones as the ones of the canvas and leather. The handles have beige color threads while the body of the bag is sewn in brown color. Both the original and on the replica bag the stitching is perfect. The threads are evenly spaced apart and do not have any loose threads. The base of the purse is reinforced by stiches placed vertically on the outer sides and by a X shaped stitching on the center. Also, on each end of the stitched X there is one gold metallic feet.

All the Pallas bags have gold color hardware and every part of metal on it carries the Louis Vuitton name or initials. My Pallas Havane replica has the same gold color hardware that seems to be very well finished and engraved with the exact same authenticity marks, including the four rounded studs that support the base of the purse.

The Louis Vuitton Pallas Monogram Canvas Havane is one of the most chic and functional luxury designer bags. Due to its unique shape, generous size, versatile use and subtle folds it can serve ideally as a stylish carry bag for the utterly modern woman. This is why, if you have your mind set on a glamorous LV Pallas replica, I advise you to read this practical and thorough review. It can make the difference between a successful purchase and a real disaster.

How to Spot a Fake Louis Vuitton Speedy

Louis Vuitton

Even if it sounds unbelievable, to spot a replica Louis Vuitton Speedy is a really hard job to do. Replica manufacturers have developed their abilities to replicate these kinds of luxury bags so well that it has almost impossible to differentiate a good replica from the original Louis Vuitton Speedy. Still there are a few things that make the difference that can be followed to spot a fake LV Speedy.

lv speedy1

It is really important that you know the parts of the bag before purchasing one. You should check the type of lining, you should know if it should have feet or not, how the base should be, where the D-ring should be positioned, what codes and markings should it have and where. All these details will help you determine if the bag you got, or intend to get is fake or not. I will present here a few general guidelines that can help you distinguish a fake bag, but you can also check the original web site and get all the information you need about the genuine Louis Vuitton Speedy.

Starting with the particularities of the lining, I can start by saying that the inside parts of a Monogram Speedy bag are all the time a little bit tricky. Even if the cotton canvas has a very common brown color, you can find on the market a lot of variations of this color for the Louis Vuitton Speedy replicas. As Louis Vuitton never used suede lining, not even for the vintage models, please don’t get fooled by it. Louis Vuitton is using a material named Alcantara that looks a lot like the suede lining, but it isn’t actually suede. The color of this particular material is grey mushroom, not brown. This specific material is never available in dark brown. All the Monogram Speedy models have to have a brown cotton canvas lining, it doesn’t matter what year the bag was manufactured in. If you find a bag that has any other kind of lining you should avoid it if you want a genuine bag cause it is for sure a fake one.

For the very exclusivist Louis Vuitton everything is very important, even the small details like stitching. For the original Louis Vuitton bags all the stitches are even and regular. The stitching pattern from similar parts on the bag should be identical. I can give you an example for this. On the Monogram Speedy bag leather tab, where the handles attach onto the bag there should be five identical and even stitches.

Louis Vuitton uses a very specific font to write “LOUIS VUITTON PARIS” on the tags and on the leather patches. All the other types of fonts used don’t do anything but show us that the bag is a fake. The original Louis Vuitton bags have a very round “O”; the two letters “T” do not touch each other in the word “VUITTON”; and the “N”, “A” and “V” are very pointy. There is no paint between the letters on the original bag, the whole engraving should be extremely clean and clear.

It seems that the creator of these amazingly beautiful handbags has proudly engraved his name all over his products. Every metal clasp, button, zipper, or lock has a number or the Louis Vuitton name written on it. You should take care at the quality of all the materials used, not only the leather. There is no plastic painted in gold on the original LV bags.

In the last 25 years Louis Vuitton has been manufacturing his bags in countries like, USA, Spain, Germany or Italy. So if you buy a bag that has the engraving “Made in Italy” or “Made in Germany” it does not mean it is fake, even if the origins of LV are in France.

Please don’t forget that the Louis Vuitton handbags are very expensive and they should look and feel like this, no cheap materials are allowed on the genuine LV bags. And also please don’t trust anyone that is selling you an original Speedy bag for $300.
