I've never owned an auth Chanel but I have family members who do, I was able feel their auth bags and did not feel any difference. The leather is soft and squishy. In fact, I bought a leather conditioner expecting the leather to be stiff, I went ahead and conditioned knowing how good the leather already is, lemme tell y'all, the leather is to die for! It has become more buttery and more supple, more so than the auth! The color after conditioning deepened and the caviar glistens in the light, like stars twinkling in the sky from afar. Stitching is straight, no frayed thread. Metals are shiny, no cracks or chipping. Chain strap is heavy, no squeaking, it does twist but Im noticing that the more I use and massage, it is doing it less. Zipper is smooth. - Mandy

MMM the grain is nice and it feels the same as my auth mini Palm springs. Smells like leather and doesn't have that ew ew fufu smell. The color looks correct. My sister sent me a video of the auth one from when she tried it on at the LV store and it looks the same. The color of hardware is correct and it's not too yellowy. The stitching is very clean and there's not leftover threads that are just hanging and vibing. I didn't find any flaws, but I didn't really inspect the stitching THAT much because it overall looked good so :) I'm not one to nitpick every single detail because umm.. it looks like the auth in my opinion but correct me if I'm wrong though. My mom owns quite many LV bags and she said that it looks really good. She only uses auth items, but this time she wanted to get this same bag from here too as well. The leather feels correct and the L has that nice curve on the left side. The bottom also had the correct alignment. The handles also seem to have the correct alignment. - Kuma

Honestly, quality of this bag is wonderful. I cannot really find much quality issue. Leather: Smells like leather. No fufu at all. Soft and supple! Has light sheen. Stitching: Yup, this is handstitched. No messy stitch, no loose thread. Thread thickness thick enough and it looks like it is waxed linen thread to me!
I am in love with this bag. I already carried it with confidence to meet up with someone who knows Hermes and got compliment! She might have been just being nice but still, I am confident wearing it everywhere!
Also, I think I got the lowest price possible for this bag. Handstitched, waxed linen thread, TC leather, mini lindy! - nancy

Overall the bag is AMAZINGGGGG. When I first got it out the box I was like WOW. I just couldn’t believe how much of a high quality replica it was. No bad smell at all either upon opening the box!
· Checked all over the bag for any flaws at all, the stitching is extremely neat inside and out. Only thing I find is the zip is a bit stiff, is this normal on LV bags? I assume it will loosen up when using the bag more!
· The padlock and keys are very chunky and weighty, super shiny and just look perfect imo!
· Alignment looks pretty damn good too!
· The extra long strap is great too; clasps all function correctly with no issues. - Hazel

Seriously love this factory - best bang for your buck, really great quality smooth lanbskin, sheen, no loose threads, the packaging is great, the protection is awesome. I love the little extra details like the leather that protects the flaps from the zipper when not in use. No hydroxyfufu smell. overall the construction is great, stuffed well, and in great shape. I can't stop petting it.
My goodness, when I first opened this girl, I seriously was in love. I think this is my perfect CF size. CANNOT believe I've been holding out on 25cm for so long. So happy with the size and the color is just mesmerizing. - Isabella

Absolutely stunning! It smells like a leather goods store. No fufu smell at all. The piping is very neat, stitching is clean. The hardware feels very heavy duty, including the lock. The handle is firm and the leather is soft and sturdy. It's a very great shape and feels secure. The hardware is even, the sangles look even. The stamping looks correct, not too light or deep. Overall feels and smells like a very quality bag! - Sophia

I love smooth, soft leathers, so this is the bag for me! I've never felt the auth so I don't know if it's feels accurate. No fufu smells, it smells like leather. The color looks great too
The hardware on this bag is beautiful! I love the color and the sounds it makes. It has great detailing like the auth.
For zipper opens and closes smoothly. The handle of the zipper is made with the same leather as the pocket and inside of the bag.
I love this bag so much! I ordered this twilly to go with it. I realize I love white bags and plan to get more eventually. My personal color scheme is black, white, red and pink. I can't wait to wear this bag for Christmas and valentines day with my red coat. It really fits my aesthetic, even if it's not 100% accurate, I'll still wear her with pride! - EMMA

Caviar grain looks and feels great, soft but durable. Stitching is very neat and uniform. Seams pulled tight. The strap had good weight and feels sturdy but was still flexible. No fufu smell. Hardware looks good, turns smoothly. There was a tiny bit of leftover wrapping on the front hardware but I'm sure it was for protection purposes and I was able to pick it off. Still something to note if you're planning on giving this as a gift (hello Holidays - Cindy

I always feel that classic flap bags are already so well reviewed. I didn’t intend to review this bag but when I got it, I felt like I needed to either 1. Keep this source to myself because it’s so good OR 2. Scream it out in the top of my lungs so others can see what I am raving about! I have semi opted to do #2 in hopes that some of you can convince me that I wrote a great review and I am not crazy in my opinion! Ladies, seriously try this bag out even just for the caviar leather alone and tell me what you think! It just feels so damn delicious, I can’t keep this goodie to myself!!
· The stitching is tightly stitched and all threads are even throughout all the quilts.
· Metal chain links have a dense weight and the intertwined leather is also soft and flexible. There is ZERO SQUEAKING AND ZERO FUFU. Like, NONE.
· The CC logo and turnlock have good metal structure and feel. Gold tone is even throughout with no scratches.
· All hardware is real metal, zipper runs smooth. Chain attachments are solid, attached well. Gromets are well attached, tight throughout. - Amy
