Holy shit, did these smell. They smelled like they had been dipped in gasoline. I am a nurse, and I'm not sensitive to smells like most people. However, these smelled so bad I had to air them out for at least a day or two. The dust bag still smells. Still, they are branded. They came with a Gucci box and dustbag. They even had a tag attached. The color of the hardware is a bit orangey so I'm going to try to DIY it.
