Gwyneth Paltrow’s Vagina Candle Is Back In Stock


Gwyneth Paltrow

Earlier this year, Gwyneth Paltrow raised eyebrows around the world when she released a candle with the name This Smells Like My Vagina. While many didn’t quite see the funny side, the candle - which smells ‘beautifully unexpected’, according to the Goop website - quickly sold out. With even Elton John reportedly buying the candle in bulk.

And the demand has been so high that the candle is now back in stock, which you can buy from Goop. (Unfortunately it does only ship to the US - so anybody fancy a holiday?)

It's no surprise Goop have re-ordered the candle, as perfumer Douglas Little - who worked on the candle with Gwyneth - said they had been 'hounded' after the creation originally sold out. ‘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 headline grabbing $75 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.
