We ordered this mattress just over a year ago and I wanted to wait until we used it for a while before leaving a review. I remember when we unpacked the mattress it had a *slight* odor, but it was not a harsh chemical odor like so many products we find these days, but rather a more natural odor that one might expect from a product made with more natural materials. The odor dissipated very quickly, in only a few days as I recall, which made me happy as I'm very concerned with harmful materials used in my home. The bed has proven to be very comfortable. My 7 year old daughter sleeps in this bed, so she probably doesn't know what real comfort is, but I have slept in the bed with her many times and I have never felt uncomfortable at all. In fact I think it's more comfortable than my bed. Overall this is a very good product, and as I need new mattresses in my home I will be purchasing them from this company.
