Remember when Gwyneth Paltrow released ‘This Smells Like My Orgasm Candle’ on Goop? Hard to forget! Well, the wellness guru has just garnered another unlikely A-list fan in musician Travis Barker. While we suspect it’s a gift for his girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian, Barker doesn’t let on in his Instagram stories, which is where he chose to showcase his new flame. Opting for the personal touch, the label on the candle reads: ‘This Smells Like Kourtney’s Orgasm’. Cute or gross? You decide. It's unclear whether this niche personalisation service is available for everyone as - yet again! - the candle has sold out online.
Following the soaring success of ‘This Smells Like My Vagina Candle’, Gwynnie decided to launch the 'Smells Like My Orgasm' follow-up last summer. So, what exactly does the Orgasm candle smell like? According to the Goop website, it’s ‘made with tart grapefruit, neroli, and ripe cassis berries blended with gunpowder tea and Turkish rose absolutes for a scent that's sexy, surprising, and wildly addictive’. At $75 a pop, it’s not cheap. But if you were planning to treat a special someone in your life a la Barker, you’ll have to sign up to the waiting list to be notified on when it’s back in stock.
