Gwyneth Paltrow’s got a $75 “smells like my vagina” candle
See the original posting on Boing Boing
If my vagina smelled like “geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar absolutes juxtaposed with Damask rose and ambrette seed,” I’d go see my doctor. But, then again, I’m also no Gwyneth Paltrow. Her shop Goop recently introduced a $75 candle named “This Smells Like My Vagina.”
Described as having a “funny, gorgeous, sexy, and beautifully unexpected scent,” the overpriced candle is not meant to actually smell like Paltrow’s private parts (thank goodness). The original description, now removed, explains, “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’…” The rest is votive history.
If you were hoping to get a whiff of (this) vagina (candle), sorry weirdo, it’s already sold out.
