Rated 1 out of 5 by sch1 Worse thing I ever bought from LL Bean
Dead when it arrived, no fragrance at all. The candle was white dipped in red wax which fell off when put in the cheap plastic holder, I just threw that out. So very, very dry. I did used some of the decorations to decorate a candle ring that I bought from my local grocery store that was so much better and cost so much less and smelled wonderful. Shipping from Oregon and sitting somewhere over Thanksgiving made no sense to me, Will never purchase fresh balsam again from LL Bean.

Rated 1 out of 5 by WestCoastLLBeanTransplant Woodland Berry Centerpiece w/red candle
I have rc'd the LLBean centerpieces as gifts for many years. This is the first time that I am disappointed and taking the time to comment. It has been watered as per instruction and the little branches w/green leaves after 4 days are drying out. It does not look like the picture as advertised and "droopy". There is no smell either. My Mother told me that her gift was dry when she rc'd it so I called customer service and they sent her a new one. I believe that I got the Balsum centerpiece last year and it smelled wonderful and lasted so perhaps that would be a better choice...and costs less.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NMEK Very nice for Christmas season
Arrived today in very good condition with lots of greens and pinecones and berries, it smells like Christmas! It actually arrived a week sooner than I expected so I hope it will last through the holiday season

I have recieved centerpieces for a few years as a gift. This time it was only decorated on one side. I did call LLBean and they are going to send me me some berries and pinecones so I can finish the arrangement. I have always been very pleased with their centerpieces. Maybe they got busy, huh? :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by SantaCruiser For the money, I should gotten this from a florist
Perhaps there was a box to check when ordering for a delivery nearer Christmas, but I didn't see one. Nonetheless, I certainly did not expect the centerpiece to arrive on Dec. 5. (I ordered it on Dec. 2.) I've had to keep it in the garage - cooler there - to try to preserve its freshness til I put it on my table.
Also, the foliage is not as full as is pictured in the catalog. You can CLEARLY see the green plastic container beneath the arrangement, which really distracts from its appearance.
Next year, I'll go to a local florist so that I can see what I'm getting BEFORE I pay for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChicagoHeart Look great, smells great and lasts a long time
I bought this for my in-laws for Christmas last year. My mother-in-law absolutely loved it and said that everyone who came to her house complimented her on it. She said that it smelled wonderful and lasted a very long time. Great gift for a hard to buy for person. I will now do this for her every year.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gintex Disappointed
I have been ordering Chriustmas Greenery for friends, family and me for years. This is the first time I am not happy. There are not enough trash bags for all the needles that are falling off mine. This has not happeneded before. I keep it watered and sprayed. I am not happy with mine and I assume the over 300.00 worth of greenery I ordered are just as unsatisfactory..
