Hii Phoenix,
I was wondering if anyone had experience with the Gold Bond Buckingham Plush? Was interested in any feedback but mostly concerned if it arrived with an odor and how long
It took to off gas.
Thanks so much..

Hi Mattress1953,

I don’t have any personal experience with the “odor” of this particular mattress, but perhaps there are more knowledgeable members on this site may have had experiences with thjis particular product when it is new. Have you been able to visit a Gold Bond showroom and personally take a look at one of these mattresses? They may have a new one in their back room where they could cut a notch in the plastic bag to allow you to smell what the item is like when new.

Because of your particular sensitivity to odors as described in your previous posts, I’d be cautious of using anyone else’s experiences or opinions on the initial smell of any particular mattress, as it may not align with your own.

I also wanted to reiterate from one of my previous replies that the smell of a material and off-gassing can be very different things. I believe that what you were curious about was how long the initial odor takes to dissipate.

Thank you so much for your very helpful response. That is a great idea about scratch and sniffing a new one. Unfortunately, I was out in Northampton
Ma, looking at their Berkeley latex mattresses when I came across the Gold Bond. There were no new ones there, and they would have to order one if I chose to buy it there. They very generously offered to keep the mattress
in their warehouse until no odor was detected by them and /or have me come out to check on it from time to time.and sniff it for myself for as you say, it is a very individual issue. They said it could be anywhere from weeks to months until it was odor free depending on my sensitivities. Also the delivery charge from there to Newton was going
to be close to $400. Delivered locally,
$40. Going back and forth about whether or not that's worth it to me. In the meantime, I reached out to the Gold Bond rep who pointed me in the direction of stores that carry their mattress within 15 mins of here rather than 90. Not sure they would be amenable to airing it out for me which does have value. Maybe they have some new ones available for smelling.
That would be a great solution.
Thanks so much for your wise advice.
I hope you are doing well.

Hi Mattress1953,

It certainly would be worthwhile to check with the local stores to see if they have an area in their warehouse where they could stand the mattress up and slide the plastic covering down and let it “air out” for you and allow you to come and check on it. I’m familiar with retailers who have done this in the past for customers who are sensitive to odors. It’s certainly worth asking.

Good luck!
