Received this "centerpiece" today as a gift from my mother. It is very skimpy for the high price LL Bean is charging. It doesn't look half as nice as the photo on line. The bow is very small and the greens were flattened by the packaging. It isn't worth a quarter of what my mom paid.

What a waste of money! No smell to the greenery. Needles falling all over the table even though it just arrived. I wish I had received a thoughtful gift instead of this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ChaplinRocks No actually balsam
As someone who lives in Maine I know the difference between the various evergreens here. I received this as a gift in the mail. While it is lovely to look at. The greens are 95% fir tips with two balsam sprigs. I also don't get the nice balsam christmassy scent. It is a pretty table decoration but don't call it balsam...

I purchased the 3 candle center piece for my mom for Christmas last year. (2013) It was not like the picture that was presented online. It was skimpy, and there where no Balsam pine at all in the arrangement. It had the long needle pine as the main greenery. It also looked a bit dried out too. For the price, I just didn't think it was worth it. I wanted to try it again, but since my last experience was not good. Shipping was great and it did arrive in plenty of time.

Especially love the smell. Greenery is good. Decorations OK. Dinky red bow does NOT replicate the red bow in picture - which is a disappointment. I would not have expected this from LLBean. I ordered four of these centerpieces, mailed to four recipients (including me), and I wish I were satisfied with the bow. I would recommend this to a friend, with reservations about the dinky bow.

We visited our inlaws a few weeks ago and as soon as we walked in the house we smelled it,so we went into the Dining room where they had it on the Table and looked it over real good,wife wanted one so once we got back home i went online and ordered her one,it is what is described,and it smells awesome,our home is smaller than our inlaws so i smell it in all rooms.just keep it watered ever few days and it should last awhile.Thanks for a great product,will be sure to place my order earlier next year.

We are so disappointed with this item. Seems to us for $45.00 price tag, it would have more greens, it is very skimpy & chintzy. $19.99 would have been a more fair price for this item. Sorry.

Received this as a gift and embarrassed for the sender. It's flat, has 2 odd looking pieces of mesh cloth balled up on either side as some kind of decoration and over all cheap looking. No one should pay more than $15.99 for this arrangement. Love LL Bean and their Christmas trees but this arrangement needs to be dramatically reduced or removed from inventory.

I ordered four of these for presents that I personally delivered! I do not know what the nay sayers are talking about they were lovely especially for that price. If they were damaged in any way Beans always stands behind their products, just call them and they always go above and beyond what is expected. I will be ordering more this Christmas!

This was sent as a gift, and upon seeing it, it was very disappointing. It was just a flattened mass of greenery with no scent, no candles, no pinecones, and a ribbon more than half the size of the one pictured. Some differences were expected in the arrangement, but what was sent was unacceptable and embarrassing. I offered to return it, but the person did not want me to go through the trouble.
