During your Christmas shopping recently, you most likely came across those candles with labels on them that read ‘This Candle Smells Like Pine’ or ‘This Candle Smells Like Gingerbread’. Well, Gwyneth Paltrow’s online Goop store has gone one step further and released a candle stamped with the promise ‘This Smells Like My Vagina’.
Retailing at US$75, customers are promised a Heretic Parfum scent that is “funny, gorgeous, sexy, and beautifully unexpected”.
Even while Goop gets lots of criticism for hyping up products that promise well-being but are actually more novelty than good for you, the ‘Vagina’ candle has sold out.
While some dirty pervs may think the candle contains even the tiniest essence of Gwynnie’s fanny, it doesn’t. It does, however, deliver notes of geranium, citrus, bergamot, cedar, damask rose and ambrette seed.
This isn’t the first time Goop has made the news for its ‘out-there’ creations. Gwyneth’s brand once released a set of jade eggs that were meant to be placed inside the vagina, promising questionable health benefits at an over-the-top price.
Even while Goop gets lots of criticism for hyping up products that promise well-being but are actually more novelty than good for you, the ‘Vagina’ candle has sold out. With hundreds of customers begging for restock.
