I bought 2 of these comforters for my children. My children love to nap and sleep in my bed, which has a goose down comforter on it. They love to snuggle under the covers and comforter...and they will sleep for hours...and now in their own beds! Upon receiving the comforters, I fluffed them and spread them out for a couple of hours before putting them on their bed so that they could fill out from being tightly packaged. No smell noted. I inspected the quality and appearance of the comforters after it had time to fill out from being packaged, and it was exactly as pictured and described. I am very pleased and sure you will be too.
