Perfumer's alcohol, everclear, absolute ethanol (lab stuff), or ethanol denatured with an oldorless denaturant would be best. I like perfumer's alcohol - it smells like a "nothing" fragrance. Definitely stay away from methanol - nasty poisonous.
Most American rubbing alcohol is isopropyl alcohol, which is only mildly toxic but undrinkable, and it has its own odor - which is why it's not used in fragrance. Granted, after it evaporates, isopropyl doesn't leave much odor, but a sensitive nose may still smell it a bit, especially with plastic.
