My husband and I purchased this mattress because we needed a very firm mattress due to back problems. We unwrapped it and slept on it that same night. I would not recommend that to others. I did not notice any problems with smell but the mattress was HARD that first night. After a few nights it started to soften up and now after about 2 weeks it is still very firm, but not hard. My husband was going to get a topper for his side because the bed was just to hard for him, but now he seems to be OK with it. I can tell a huge difference in my back when I wake up in the morning, no more pain. Just be sure that VERY FIRM is what your looking for, if so, this is the bed for you.
