Looks great smells awful
I've had this humidor for several months now and the glue / lacquer smell in it is as strong as the day I bought it. Seasoned it let it air out have left it open for weeks tried activated charcoal nothing will work. I wouldn't even think putting tobacco near this thing.||The locks hinges and everything else is good quality...but is useless for storage.
