I've only had the pillow for a few days now and my whole family wants to steal it from me! Think I know another good Christmas gift for them now. Anyhow, the pillow doesn't have any smell (like you hear about in relation to memory foam); it's a great size (mine's a queen and fits a queen mattress great); and it is so comfortable! My neck and head are supported nicely while being cradled by the foam. A heavenly sleep is guaranteed!!
