no, not a plasticky smell. that could have a lot to do with the company that manufactures the plastic parts. hubs & i worked in a plastics injection molding plant for a while. learned a lot about plastic..lol there are some kinds that oils will begin to break down/bond with. perhaps this company is using too cheap of plastic parts. i have ordered rollerballs from accessoriesforfragrances.com (not affiliated) their rollerballs were plastic tips, with glass bottoms & different colored lids. ive found that mostly theyre fine, but can leak if you are somewhere warm, or if the air pressure changes quickly, they will kind of put out too much when u use it next, and was kind of wasteful i think. this was with edp perfumes. husband has a rollerball of kiehl's pour homme oil (bought at Nordstroms) and it leaked too with air pressure change. i changed to a product i found at walmart believe it or not.
beauty to go "scent genie". it has a little rubber thing in the bottom, you take the cap off of your perfume, and pump it on the bottom, the fragrance goes right in with no wasted spritzes. this baby is AIR TIGHT! i cannot smell my fragrance evaporating wastefully, no leakage, nice even sprays from it, airplane approved. its my new favorite thing. they cost about 4$ each. and for myself im going to use my frags in this, because i looooove them. and dont want to waste a drop of my favorites. it broke my heart to see & smell my vintage niki de st phalle evaporating & leaking away out of rollerballs. oils work pretty well. but at least here in Nebraska with the constant air pressure & temperature changes due to weather, ima stick with the scent genie to keep every precious drop safe!
