This blue bombshell is made from silicone, and has that initial ugh smell. Don't worry, it wears off with some air and a wash (be careful, this toy is not waterproof!). Even if it doesn't, you'll be having too much fun to notice it anyway. The silicone is nice and smooth, and the details are shallow to make for easier cleaning. The motor is in the top, but don't let that deter you. You can feel every vibration all throughout. Even down to the bottom swirl, and I can tell you, that's nice! It's quiet, even when you crank it up all the way. The vibes aren't too strong or weak, but right in the middle. I would say this is a good addition to any collection. Happy shopping!
