Gwyneth Paltrow's 'Smells Like My Pussy' Candle Sold Like Hotcakes

 "This Smells Like My Vagina" is the name of the candle sold by the American actress Gwyneth Paltrow put on sale on her site Goop for $ 75. And it is already out of stock.



But what is behind that name?

According to the description on the Goop site - the lifestyle company created by Paltrow and which sells a variety of products at not modest prices - the name came as a joke between the actress and perfumer Douglas Little.

"They were both working on a fragrance, and she said, 'Uhhh ... this smells like a vagina,' but it evolved into a fun, beautiful, sexy, wonderfully unexpected scent," it is shared. The scent of the "This Smells Like My Vagina" candle includes geranium, citrus bergamot, cedar and roses.

Gwyneth Paltrow reveals she invented candles that smell like her vagina while high.

In Hollywood, it is increasingly common for stars to try to diversify their opportunities and embark on business ventures in addition to pursuing their artistic careers. That is what Gwyneth Paltrow has done since 2008, when she created Goop, a brand that sells fashion products, cosmetics and books, among others, and which is valued at 225 million euros according to The New York Times.

Although financially things are going very well for her business, the Iron Man actress has not been without controversy for a single year since she started with her company due to the peculiarity or lack of usefulness and scientific basis of some of its products. In fact, the latest controversy dates back to just a week ago, when the world learned of Paltrow's vagina-scented candles, which sold "like hotcakes" despite the $ 75 price tag.

In case the candles were not extravagant enough by themselves, the actress now wanted to answer the question "What was I thinking?", Which has surely crossed the minds of many people, with an explanation that is less peculiar.

As Paltrow revealed during an interview on the American television program Late Night With Seth Meyers, which he attended to present the documentary about his company that Netflix premieres today, his idea of ​​creating a candle with the smell of her vagina " at first it was a joke ”.

"I smelled nice and said, 'It smells like my vagina.' But it was all a joke because we were high. We were trying a hallucinogenic mushroom tea, "said the actress, who attributed her idea to the effects of the drugs she had taken when perfumer Douglas Little showed her an essence made with geranium, citrus bergamot, cedar, Damask rose and Abelmosco seed.

In short, what began as a "fun, beautiful, sexy and wonderfully unexpected scent" that should make the buyer think "of fantasy, seduction and sophisticated warmth", has ended up being a best-seller due to the false belief that the actress has recreated the smell of her genitals to put it in a product of hers.

Although the explanation given by Gwyneth Paltrow does not take away too much weirdness to the matter, it serves at the very least to understand what was going through her head when she devised such extravagance, which is neither the first nor (probably) the last to be sold in the Goop catalog. .

Paltrow is an Oscar winner for her performance in "Shakespeare in Love" (1998) and has acted in films such as "The Royal Tenembaums" and is part of the characters of the Marvel Universe such as Pepper Potts, the Tony Stark / Iron Man couple ( Robert Downey Jr.). In real life, she was the girlfriend of Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck in the 1990s; she was married to Chris Martin, lead singer of the English band Coldplay, from 2003 to 2016, father of her children Apple and Moses.

In 2018 she married television director and producer Brad Falchuk.
