Gwyneth Paltrow is, regrettably, at it again – this time selling a candle scented ‘like her orgasm’

Gwyneth Paltrow has released a follow-up to her infamous vagina candle, and this time it apparently smells “like her orgasm”.

Paltrow’s website Goop, home of bizarre, extortionately overpriced and in some cases potentially harmful “wellness” products, famously released a candle named “This Smells Like My Vagina” in January, 2020. 

The “vagina” scent was described as “geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar absolutes juxtaposed with Damask rose and ambrette seed to put us in mind of fantasy, seduction, and a sophisticated warmth”.

The vagina candle divided queer women online, with some branding it the “perfect gift for any lesbian”, and others saying: “The fact that a p***y-scented candle is not only a concept but an actual product that you can purchase and have in your home makes me want to put an ice pick in my skull.”

Now, Goop founder Gwyneth Paltrow has released a follow-up candle, and no, it’s not a butt-scented candle as many gay men were hoping. 

With most of the world still confined to their homes during the coronavirus pandemic, Paltrow honed in on what everyone truly needs during these uncertain times – a house that smells like an orgasm.

The “This Smells Like My Orgasm” candle can be yours for the questionable price of $75 (£60). 

Its description on Goop reads: “A fitting follow-up to that candle – you know the one – this blend is 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.”

Speaking to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Kimmel about her new candle, Paltrow described it as a “punk-rock, feminist statement to have on your table”.

“This Smells Like My Orgasm” is currently only available for pre-order in the US, but luckily “This Smells Like My Vagina”, which quickly sold out when it was released, is back in stock to tide you over in the meantime.

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 NHS does not recommend that pregnant people take Vitamin A supplements, as too much can be harmful to their baby.
