Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s reaction to Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina-scented candle is f**king hilarious

If you missed our story the other day, that headline must seem f**king wild.


It all started with Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina-scented candle

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.”

Okay, so it probably doesn’t smell like her actual vagina, but at least it’s made the internet happy this week.

Time to get @therock to sell candles that smell like his balls”

This is where The Rock comes in. The Jumanji star piped in when American comedian Adam Ray decided to weigh in the hot-topic. Ray wrote the following on Instagram:
“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”

“Brother I tried to make those candles, but I kept burning my balls”

Never one to shy away from a bit of online banter, Johnson then responded, commenting:
Brother I tried to make those candles 🕯 but I kept burning my balls. So I moved on to shampoo. 😂 #scentofsac
LOL. What a lad.


And Gwyneth Paltrow loved it

The online joke led Adam Ray to post that he has now made a new celebrity mate in The Rock and that the pair are seriously considering releasing a line of “male only candles” (not really, but #bants). He wrote:
“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”
Oh, and then Paltrow dropped the mic by responding to all of this banter, commenting:
“This is f**king priceless #deceased.”
Tbf, I know seven or eight people I could buy a candle that smells like The Rock’s sweaty balls for.
