Goop Releases ‘This Smells Like My Vagina’ Candle

Published on January 13, 2020

Yes, you read that right. Gwyneth Paltrow‘s lifestyle brand Goop released a candle called “This Smells Like My Vagina”.

For $75, customers get a candle with a scent described as “funny, gorgeous, sexy, and beautifully unexpected.” While the name is a little shocking, the scent itself actually sounds quite nice. The candle contains geranium, citrusy bergamot, cedar, Damask rose and ambrette seed.

Although Twitter had a field day mocking the interestingly named candle, others seemed to think the ‘This Smells Like My Vagina’ candle is a great way to spend $75, because the candle is currently sold out.

This is not the first time Goop has made headlines for its absurd creations. Paltrow received heat for jade eggs meant to be put in the vagina, which have questionable-at-best health benefits at an outrageous price tag. In general, Goop is often criticized for its overpriced and under-researched wellness products and advice. Despite all of that, Goop seems to be thriving. The company recently struck deals with both Netflix and Sephora. And despite the ridiculousness, the candle sold out.
