I am looking at buying a MeLuna cup.  I'd like to know if they give any kind of odor, like a slight rubbery or plastic odor.  I ask because I have a hot water bottle made of TPE and it has a bit of an odor.

Mine has absolutely no odor.

Ditto, none of mine do either.

It didn't come with an odor, but I can no longer really use mine because of how badly it smells after use. (I can deal with blood and a faint odor on my Lunette that's gone after boiling/sunning, but my MeLuna is stomach turning, for me.)

hmm, i get this sometimes but only when i leave it in for really long. and airing the cup helps with it (though only airing - melunas shouldn't be sunned!)

I think it's my body chemistry + the cup. If it's in even for just a couple of hours, I feel sick from the smell when I take it out. And since I'm usually handling it in public restrooms (most of my life is away from home), that level of stinkiness isn't viable in general - nor is being sick from my own menstrual products. I like my Lunette fine and when it comes time to replace it, I think I'll just go with that again - clearly MeLuna just isn't the cup for me.

When I first took them out of their packagings, one of mine had a slight plasticy smell, the other one pretty much none. I think it went away after boiling and a few days airing. No really bad odour afterwards, just the typical faint blood/organic smell right after I take it out, just like with my silicone cup.

neither do my two melunas. and if something does turn out to be wrong with the cup, the company won't hesitate to replace it, their customer service is excellent.

i have some meluna cups and none of them have an odour. and the company is really good for replacements if anything goes wrong.

I have 5 MeLuna cups, including some in both the old (MINI) and new (optimized) styles. They're all odourless.
