If you missed our story the other day, that headline must seem f**king wild.
Quick recap: actress Gwyneth Paltrow is selling candles that apparently smell like her vagina, and the internet has been going nuts for it, as of late. Earlier this week we reported that so many of her fans have purchased the vagina-scented candle, that her online shop has now completely sold out of the product. But if you’re uber keen for that sweet aroma, then there’s an online waiting list.
The intimately-scented candle – which is appropriately called “THIS SMELLS LIKE MY VAGINA” – is being sold for $75 (forget the name, the gag is the price) on the 47-year-old’s website for her lifestyle brand, Goop.
Gwyneth explains its unique name:
“This candle started as a joke between perfumer Douglas Little and GP — the two were working on a fragrance, and she blurted out, “Uhhh..this smells like a vagina”—but evolved into a funny, gorgeous, sexy, and beautifully unexpected scent.
“That turned out to be perfect as a candle—we did a test run at an In goop Health, and it sold out within hours.
“It’s a blend of geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar absolutes juxtaposed with Damask rose and ambrette seed that puts us in mind of fantasy, seduction, and a sophisticated warmth.”
“It was only a matter of time until normal scented candles would be out of style. Your move Yankee Candle Co. Time to get @therock to sell candles that smell like his balls👌Price is Right ONE DOLLAR her, and sell them for $74. #vaginacandles#gwenythpaltrow#balls#therock”
“A simple Saturday joke has led to an internet friendship & a potential new line of male only candles🤘Me & @therock are now taking scent suggestions for this early stocking stuffer👌#therock#scentednuts#candlemagic#goop”
“This is f**king priceless #deceased.”
