If you’re someone who happens to be curious about what a vagina smells like in candle form, well… you’re in luck — I guess? — because Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop is selling a $75 candle that “smells like my vagina” — and you can finally get your hands on it.
Yes, friends, this is real. And step aside, jade egg, because this may well be the Goop-iest thing ever sold on Goop. And while the candle sold out pretty much immediately, the good people at Goop have informed everyone via Instagram that the vagina candles are baaaacccck.
In case you hadn’t heard, the Good website describes the “This Smells Like My Vagina” candle, by Heretic, like this: “With a funny, gorgeous, sexy, and beautifully unexpected scent, 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.”
Over on the Heretic website, it’s described as follows: “Imagine a bundle of roses wrapped in suede… This limited edition candle evokes sensuality, warmth, and intrigue. It’s a voluptuous scent of fantasy and seduction. Made with a combination of natural and safe synthetic fragrance materials blended in vegetable wax with a lead-free cotton wick.”
Heretic perfumer Douglas Little is the nose behind other Goop fragrance collaborations, and as described on Goop, Little and Paltrow “share a passion for scent. ‘We sit on the floor and geek out on fragrance,’” according to Paltrow herself.
Reportedly, it started as a joke, when Paltrow and Little were, we can only assume, “geeking out” on a fragrance and she said, “Uhhh … this smells like a vagina.”
Well, okay then.
