Elton John is the proud owner of ‘a lot’ of Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina candles and we have no words
After the queen of weird stuff nobody asked for but welcome anyway Gwyneth Paltrow released a vagina-scented candle, she’s apparently found a fan in the form of legend Elton John.
Goop’s online shelves were stocked with the “unexpected” scent of the actor’s vagina earlier this month. The candle is called “This Smells Like My Vagina”.
And, according to The Cut, the singer is a big fan of the candle. Reminder that you clicked this article for a reason, so it’s time to read on and find out why.
Elton John bought ‘a lot’ of Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina candle.
“Elton John bought a ton of them,” perfumer Douglas Little told the outlet.
“Like a lot. Like, a lot a lot.
“He’s a fan,”
“We have been hounded and stalked by so many people [trying to get one]. I saw the candle being sold on eBay for a ridiculous price.”
Goop shoppers emptied the site of the candle, with the product being flogged on the online marketplace eBay for upwards of £100.
Little also explained how the vast bulk of buyers are women.
“I would say that about 92 per cent of our customers for this product are female,” he said.
“When was the last time a bunch of horny guys were out buying scented candles?
“Just saying the word — vagina! — is shocking to some people,” he continued.
“Why the f**k is that? There’s no reason.

“It’s this beautiful, sacred thing and yet in our society and in many societies there is a lot of stigma and shame.
“I think people are sick of that.”
For those hoping to sniff there vagina candle, it is still unfortunately off the market. Maybe Elton will flog the candles he brought in bulk?
How the world got Goop’d.
The actor’s brand of beautiful things with extortionate price tags has seen her helm a $250 million company.
But Paltrow and Goop have repeatedly come under fire since the website’s launch for promoting “wellness” products which could be misleading or even harmful.
These have included her promotion of “vaginal steaming” which has been criticised as having the potential to disrupt the vulva’s balance of bacteria and pH levels, and selling a “top-of-the-line natal protocol” for pregnant people that costs £88, and contains Vitamin A.
The British National Health Service does not recommend that pregnant people take Vitamin A supplements, as too much can be harmful to their baby.
