There was no smell when I took this out of the package. The Diamond Teaser has a smooth silky feel that doesn't detract from nor add to the stimulation that you feel. It works well for beginners and advanced users alike. The Diamond Teaser is made of plastic and an ABS plastic ring around the middle of the bullet. It is non porous and phthalates free. The bullet has a very soft, smooth texture, but the bullet is actually hard and unyielding.
The Diamond Teaser is black and silver. It measures 2 1/4" or about the length of a AA battery. The entire 2 1/4" of the bullet is insertable. The diameter of the bullet is 1" which is the same as a quarter. It is very lightweight. Even with the remote included the bullet is discreet and easy to travel with. It is also easy to hide such a small toy. I am very comfortable with the size of this bullet.
This bullet offers 5 variable speeds that are located throughout the entire body of the bullet. The best part of this bullet is how powerful it is. I have traditional vibes that don't have as much power as this bullet has.
The remote is convenient and easy to use. It has light indicators and runs on 3 AAA batteries.
It is noisy enough to be heard if someone is in the room with you but not loud enough to be heard through closed doors.
This can be cleaned very easily with soap and water or wiping it down with isopropyl alcohol, then patted dry before storing in the clamshell package.
The bullet is compatible with water, oil and silicone lubricants.
The Diamond Teaser comes in a plastic clamshell package that was very easy to get into, as well as it being able to use for short term storage. The package included user instructions that were more than adequate.
Personally, I believe this is an exceptional toy to have in any toy collection. While I was testing this toy out, I used it daily for close to 10 days when it died on me. Although disappointing, I am sure that this was just a defect in this one toy and not indicative of the company itself. Using one set of 3 AAA batteries I have gotten a lot of pleasure from this small toy.
I found while using this toy, that even though its power is one of the things I like most about this toy, it is also one of the things that could be a negative for some. If used for an extended period of time the Diamond Teaser has the possibility to cause numbness in your fingers or hand. This was the only negative that I could find throughout all of my continued use of this bullet.
