I read that the reason some of these pillows smell is because they were not allowed to dry / air out before packaging for sale.
Mine smelled horrible so I removed from the plastic bag it came in & removed & washed the pillow case. I allowed the pillow to 'air out' a day - then put in the dry with no heat with a couple of dry softener sheets then I sprayed it with Febreeze for a couple of days before I slept on it.
A month later - no smell & I sleep better plus it has helped my lower back a great deal. I would not trade it for anything now.

Mine did smell - but I removed it from the plastic bag it came in, washed the pillowcase & aired out the pillow. I also put both into the dry w/ 2 softener sheets & dryed on Air Only (NO HEAT) for 30 minutes - twice. That helped a great deal.
I then sprayed the pillow with Febreze natural both sides for a couple of days before I slept on it.
There is still a slight smell but after sleeping on it for 3 nights, I would never take it back. The smell will go away - & this pillow has already help my lower back pains.
and I love that I am sleeping so much better.
This pillow smells absolutely awful! I picked up two different kinds of Dream Serenity pillows, this being one of them, and now my hair, sheets, and pillowcase smell terrible. It's true it was comfortable, but the smell is so bad I'm taking it back after one night.
There is little to no smell to this pillow.
