Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop lists new $75 'Smells Like My Vagina' candle, and Twitter has the best reactions
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 description reads
Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle brand, recently put a new product up for sale on their website called This Smells Like My Vagina Candle. The internet didn't know what to make of it.
The product description reads: "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."
If you're wondering what the ingredients for such a scent would be, the description continues: "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."
Who would buy this candle, you ask? You'd be shocked because, according to the website, they "did a test run at an In Goop Health, and it sold out within hours."
Fans didn't quite understand why the candle was named This Smells Like My Vagina Candle, and threw shade at the new product.
"Gwyneth Paltrow has released a candle that smells like her vagina. Other scents soon to be released from the range are ‘Morning breath’, ‘Armpits’ and ‘Sweaty Bum Hole’" tweeted one user. Others on the thread took it forward, with one user tweeting, "I’m particularly looking forward to ‘belly button crud’ and ‘between the toes’ grime."
People pointed out the ridiculousness of having a product name like that, using 'old-time' reference. "1975: A pet rock? F****** really? People will buy anything. 2020: Hahahaha Wait until you hear about the vagina scented candles that cost 75.00" said another Twitter user.
Politics was brought into it as well, as a user added to the thread tweeting, "You forgot 2016: Trump—people will buy anything."
This is not the first time, Paltrow's brand Goop has stirred up slight mayhem—the incident of her annual Goop Gift Guide was recently a hot topic of conversation. The previous listings in the guide had included a village in Spain and a “volcano helicopter adventure.”
In 2019, there was a $250,000 trip to outer space, and a $75,000 Custom Family Documentary Tome.
Who exactly can afford these? We don't know.
