Goop's Vagina-Scented Candle Is Sold Out, and I'm Questioning My Faith in Humanity
Ladies and gentlemen, Gwyneth Paltrow may have officially out-Gooped herself. The actress's notoriously over-the-top lifestyle brand recently started selling a vagina-scented candle, and if that fact alone doesn't make you question your faith in humanity, the fact that it's sold out online certainly will.
Produced by artisanal fragrance brand Heretic, the "This Smells Like My Vagina" candle offers a "funny, gorgeous, sexy, and beautifully unexpected scent," thanks to a combination of geranium, citrusy bergamot, cedar absolutes, Damask rose, and ambrette seed. This unique mixture of ingredients caught Gwyneth off guard the first time she sniffed it, according to Paper magazine. While testing new fragrances with Heretic perfumer Douglas Little, the star apparently joked, "Uhhh . . . this smells like a vagina," and thus, a viral candle sensation was born.
Like many other products sold on Goop's website, the 10.5-ounce hooha-inspired candle is relatively overpriced, ringing up at $75; and while it's on the UK website, it's not clear whether or not it will ship internationally when it's back in stock. But alas, that hasn't stopped a flurry of curious online shoppers from snagging one in hopes of gleaning feelings of "fantasy, seduction, and a sophisticated warmth," as the product description promises. Get on the waitlist by shopping the vajayjay-scented candle ahead, and then keep reading to see all the entertaining tweets inspired by the absurd product.
