Hi everyone. I received my Lunette Selene yesterday and I am a bit concerned because I noticed it smells strangely.
I found this post: http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/3164094.html
I don't know how Feelbetter Liquid smells, but it could be some cleaning product, I really do not know how to describe this smell better. There are also traces of lint on it, but it is not covered, they could be just from the pouche fabric.

I ordered my cup from a well known and reliable online shop and it didn't come in the box but in the sealed packaging, the paperback one with the small oval "window" where you can see your cup, so I am positive it had not been opened.

Anyway, I am sure the strange smell I feel comes from my cup. Has anyone else noticed something like this? Do you think there could be safety issues?

Thank you in advance for your help and sorry for my English.

I purchased a lunette aine model 2 from Gladrags and a model 2 Selene from the actual lunette website and I noticed with both that they had a slightly sweet smell to them. I assumed it was the smell of the silicone or some process used to make them. They were both brand new so I never thought it was bad... I've used both for almost a year and haven't had any issues. They both have pretty much no smell now.

Thank you so much, I am relieved to know that it is normal!

Chiming in with the same story. I remember thinking it smelled lemony for a while and it gradually faded. :)

So it's definitely normal :-) thank you!
