We don’t think we will ever hear the end of Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina candle. Never have we seen the world go so mad over a candle. So much so that it actually sold out on Goop (very quickly).
One of the reasons why, though, might be because Elton John has reportedly bought them in bulk - according to perfumer Douglas Little, who worked with the Oscar-winning actress to make the $75-each wax creation.
‘We have been hounded and stalked by so many people,’ he told The Cut. ‘I saw the candle being sold on eBay for a ridiculous price. Elton John bought a ton of them. Like a lot. Like, a lot a lot. He’s a fan.’ Wow - there must be one in every room.
So what does this head-line grabbing candle actually smell like? According to Heretic, the thoroughly Instagram-able brand behind the showstopper, we have to 'imagine a bundle of roses wrapped in suede'. It's a 'voluptuous scent of fantasy and seduction. Made with a combination of natural and safe synthetic fragrance' with top notes of bergamot, geranium and cedar, heart notes of damask rose and a base of ambrette seed.
Elton isn't the only big name who's a fan of the unconventional scent - another celeb who has admitted she wants to get her hands on one is Holly Willoughby. Speaking on This Morning, she asked, 'Is it wrong that I want to buy one?’ Now's probably the time to admit that we really want one, too.
