Hermès bags are known for being many things — iconic, coveted, and expensive — but unfortunately for some customers, they’re now also known for reeking of skunk or cannabis.Customers have been returning designs such as the Birkin, the Kelly and the Elan clutch to Hermès boutiques after staff at the luxury fashion brand noticed that there was a problem with a badly tanned batch of leather—this caused it to smell when it was left in a hot car or direct sunlight, according to The New York Post.

The bags retail anywhere from $5,000 to more than $20,000, and were all purchased in 2013 and 2014. Hermès hasn’t commented, but customers have been advised that the affected bags will need to be returned to the Paris headquarters to have the offensive leather panels removed and be rebuilt.
