Has that nice leather smell. Can't believe real leather is so affordable. The melon color was not as nice in real life compared to the picture. Pictures made it look fancier. The orange color is very nice if you like orange. That is true to the picture. Overall it is a great purchase for the price. Other jewelry rolls at other sites cost at least 3x more and they aren't significantly nicer or even leather. Compartments seem all useful. Seems like just the right size. Earring set-up works best for studs. Hoops or dangling earrings may just need to be stored in zipper compartments. Imprint was not as deep and defined as I would like. It's hard to read unless you look up close.
