Goop's $75 Vagina-Scented Candle Is Back in Stock, So Do With That What You Will
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 was sold out online for weeks and is now back in stock after popular demand 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 while testing new fragrances with Heretic perfumer Douglas Little, leading her to compare it to her lady bits. "It started as a joke," the star recalled during a recent appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers. "I think a lot of us [women] have grown up feeling certain degrees of shame around our bodies, so this is just a little bit of a subversive candle for all of us out there."
Like many other products sold on Goop's website, the 10.5-ounce hooha-inspired candle is relatively overpriced, ringing up at $75. 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.
