Rated 3 out of 5 by pursecollector Just Okay...
I've gotten used to the sturdy, beefy leather from Dooney bags over the years so my first impression of this bag was that the leather is very thin and whimpy feeling. Knowing that pebble leather is usually a drapier type of fabric, this was still very thin. I was also disappointed because the leather was wrinkled on the front of the bag so the natural drape that happens looks odd because it drapes awkwardly in the wrinkles. I do love the mocha color as it is very different and I haven't seen any other bags in this shade. I did notice the smell that other reviewers mentioned, but within a day the smell aired out. I think I'll carry this bag for a week or two and determine then whether it's worth the money to keep. Glad I got this on clearance, as with full price this bag would be really overpriced.

I watched this bag for several weeks, but finally jumped off the fence when it went on sale for 5 hours during the midnight sales. Just like other reviews it does have some sort of chemical smell, but mine was not over powering. I really love this bag, and the size is perfect for me. This is now my fourth OrYany bag and I am sure that it won't be my last. I am usually a Dooney girl, but I am now a collector of both brands.

This bag is exactly what I have been looking for. Size, color, hardware, all on point for my personal color palette.I love that the lining matches the dust cover, and it has been modified to match the exterior. I agree though...that smell is over whelming at first. But it airs out fairly quickly. Clearly the item has been packed in plastic for a while.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Jayvw Beautiful bag with an issue
A very nice looking bag, Mocha color interesting and different. The size perfect: very large, lots of room inside, items inside easy to find. I liked the silver hardware and the pockets inside and out.
The only problem, and totally an insurmountable one, was the smell. Right out of the box on receipt it hit me. As other reviewers have said, tried and tried to keep it, tried hanging in room to air out for a week or more. Never did get to use it. The stink filled the room and never left the bag. Even the enclosed bag to store it in was intensely stinky with an oily, horrible smell. Have never smelled anything like it.
How I wanted to keep the bag but sent it back. I consider the bag to be defective because of the stench and plan on calling customer service to complain.
Rated 5 out of 5 by marceil Great neutral
I bought this in the mocha. I don't like black handbags for fall/winter. I wear a lot of greys, black, and blues and this goes with anything. The mocha is like a pale hot chocolate and could even be used any season. It did have a slight odor, but after two days I only smell the leather. I adjusted the straps to my liking and the magnetic closure is very strong.
I love this bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TriciaLee Love the Antique Rose!!
Originally purchased this bag in Mocha and loved the size of the bag. The organization is amazing! For a leather bag it is light weight, I love Dooney bags in Florentine leather style but they are heavy. I thought for me the mocha color was too blah for me. It was a nice neutral color but has a purple or taupe undertone to it which did not appeal to me for some reason. So I exchanged it for the antique rose, which I have to say is lovely. It definitely is a soft baby pink or ballet pink with a soft brown undertone, not a blush color which tends to be peach and a muddy looking undertone that makes the bag look dirty. This antique rose is a beautiful color and still passes off as a nice neutral but still girly as a baby pink. The odor issue: Usually when you buy a nice leather bag there will be an odor to it. You have to let the bag air out because it has been packed and sealed up for awhile. After a few days the odor was dissipating and after a week and a half I only smell the leather slightly, much better. This is a larger bag so unless you like larger bags you may want to skip on this one. I absolutely love the style of this bag. So very happy!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by cgnana Couldn't get past the horrible smell
I so wanted to love this purse. I watched the on-air presentation and I ordered it right away in the mocha color ... when the bag arrived I couldn't wait to open the box. Immediately upon opening I was hit with this horrendous smell ... it wasn't a typical leather scent, it was much more chemical as other reviewers have said. I did love the bag so much that I thought maybe it would go away ... I hung the purse on my bedroom door knob hoping I could use it in a day or so ... unfortunately, the smell never did go away ... I could actually smell it across the room ... I was so disappointed that I had to send it back. I love the look of orYANY bags but I wonder if all of their leather bags have this same issue. I have ordered many Dooney, B Makowsky, Coach, etc ... and have never had this problem with any other bag.
