Thank you for your positive review! I'm so glad you like the brushes. The plastic smell is from the plastic brush sleeves that hold the bristles in place so they retain their shape. Any smell should dissipate within a day or two of airing the brushes out. I'm happy to hear that they are already back to normal! If you have any further issues, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
