This mattress does not smell bad at all out of the box (like most memory foam mattresses purchased online). I don't think it smells like aloe either though, just has a kind of new smell to it. It expands and is ready to be slept on pretty much immediately out of the box. I slept on it only a couple hours after opening it up. This mattress is moderate/firm, so if you're looking for a plush mattress, look elsewhere. It stays cool and doesn't heat up as much as most memory foam mattresses, so it maintains it's firmness throughout the night. This mattress appears to work well for stomach or back sleepers (based on my use, but I'm no expert). Due to how it's layering is constructed it holds up well to people sitting on the edge of it, which I didn't expect. A nice additional feature are the two handles on both sides that makes it very easy to move around too.
