Priced at a steep $75, the product is now available on the Goop website.
Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle brand is now selling a product that is unusually titled "This Smells Like My Vagina". The candle is the latest hot seller on the Goop website and it seems it is pretty popular too as it has already sold out. But does it really smell like vagina as the name suggests? A description of the product on how it originated mentioned, "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.)"
So what is this candle really made of? "It’s a blend of geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar absolutes juxtaposed with Damask rose and ambrette seed," states the website, and is meant to "puts us in mind of fantasy, seduction, and a sophisticated warmth." The candles comes at a steep price at $75 but judging by the reception, more of these are surely set to sell. Paltrow is one celebrity who is rather open when talking about her private parts. Her comments about experimenting with vagina-steaming back in 2016 went viral.
Paltrow said in an interview with The Cut, “The first time I tried V-steaming, I was like, this is insane. My friend Ben brought me and I was like, ‘You are out of your f*****g mind. What is this?’ But then by the end of it I was like, ‘This is so great.’ Then I start to do research, and it’s been in Korean medicine for thousands of years and there are real healing properties.” She is also someone who propagates alternative health treatments and also has a Netflix special on the subject. She added, "I actually really like being the guinea pig. Some of my other girls are guinea pigs for stuff, too, but I enjoy trying things. I don’t necessarily endorse all of them, but I like to try them and write about them.”
Seriously, can you just imagine the product development meeting where they signed off on that?— Shari Lynn (@LynnSharig8) January 11, 2020
The six-episode series is called The Goop Lab and is set to cover various treatments such as energy healing, cold therapy, psychedelics, anti-aging, psychic mediums, and orgasms. A trailer of the same has already been released. She said, “What we try to do at Goop is explore ideas that may seem out there or too scary,” Goop chief content officer Elise Loehnen says, before Paltrow — who co-hosts the series Loehnen — asks, “Are you guys ready to go out in the field and make a ruckus?”
