I have read many comments about the smell, my wife and I do not have this issue. I have red comments about opening it the wrong way can damage the Kindle, I am not sure how one could do that.
This really is a great cover and I am not sure how any other brand could do a better job.
The cover is a very nice leather. The strap to keep the cover closed is great because it identifies which is the front and keeps it firmly closed. The cover is easy to install, and stays attached to the Kindle without a wobbly feeling. Having used it now for 2 months, I have grown to like the leather smell and it gives me the sensory input that I always had with books. Instead of a dusty, paper smell, it is leather, but oddly comforting.
The hinges is something I am not totally happy with, because you can't lift the Kindle from the back cover once it is attached. The hinges can't swing outwards, so if you lift the Kindle wrong, you might ruin the cover (the weight of the Kindle will bend the hinges).
I am also a bit worried about the band that is designed to keep the cover together when I am not using the device. It works just fine, but I am wondering how long it will be before it snaps.
I really like this cover, and it is by far the best I have tried on my Kindle, despite some small quirks I have mentioned above.
My only semi-negative comment, is make absolutely sure you order the correct one for your Kindle. The covers are unit-specific which I unfortunately discovered the first time I ordered one.
