Gywneth Paltrow’s boutique online retailer “goop” has officially sold of the candle that they market as smelling like a vagina.
The name of the candle is literally “This smells like my vagina candle.”
It is currently sold out.
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.
Many on social media had strong feelings about the bizarre product.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina scented candles is just the bespoke version of Belle Delphine’s used bathwater.

How does a group of people sit down with Gwyneth Paltrow and say to eachother that it would be a good idea to sell candles scented as her vagina for $75.00?
How does NO ONE try to stop this?
Are these celebrities THAT insulated?
Not ONE sane person anywhere around?
