Congrats to Gwyneth Paltrow for taking vagina waxing to the next level. Via the Iron Man and Shakespeare in Love star’s lifestyle brand, Goop, Paltrow has introduced a nifty new candle that sells for $75. And well, she claims it, “Smells Like My Vagina.” Namaste.
So the first question that enters the investigative minds of The Reel 360 Team is what exactly does Paltrow’s vagina smell like? Especially when her vagina is burning. And, well melting.
“This candle is made with geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar absolutes juxtaposed with Damask rose and ambrette seed to put us in mind of fantasy, seduction, and a sophisticated warmth,” the product listing on the Goop website reads.
Take that, Yankee Candle with your pedestrian Lilac Blossoms and Lemon-Lavender scents. The public has spoken and they want vagina.
And her vagina does come packaged very nicely.
People reports that the candle came to fruition when Paltrow and perfume creator Douglas Little were trying out different scents for a new fragrance they were attempting to create.
Paltrow allegedly said in reaction to one test odor: “Uhhh … this smells like a vagina,” and although they opted not to make a perfume out of it, a candle apparently seemed appropriate. Online reaction to the candle so far ranges curious to straight-up despair.
Paltrow’s vagina candle sold out in a matter of hours. She may have tapped into a new fetish. On the website of Heretic, which makes the candle, you can add your name to a waitlist.
Paltrow apparently launched GOOP out of her kitchen in 2008 as a weekly newsletter. As it grew in popularity, she began to introduce incredible experts who have mentored her throughout her life. It’s a destination place where readers can find suggestions about where to shop, eat, and now, where to buy vagina-scented candles.
Gwyneth if you read this, may we suggest expanding your line of candles to include the vagina scents of Scarlett Johansson, Margot Robbie, Megan Fox, Jessica Biel, Zoe Saldana, Halle Berry and Dame Judi Dench? Don’t ask, we all have our fantasies.
Would you pay $75 for a candle that supposedly smells like Paltrow’s vagina? Please, please comment below.
