Gwyneth Paltrow has released a sequel to the infamous “Smells Like My Vagina” candle which sold on the actor’s lifestyle website, Goop.
The actor unveiled the first candle in January, sparking a wave of confused, tickled and indignant comments online.
Despite the fanfare, or perhaps because of it, the candle, which cost $ 75 (£ 60), quickly sold out.
Paltrow later explained that the geranium, citrus bergamot and cedar scent product started out as a joke. Then she thought it might be a “feminist statement.”
Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel on his eponymous talk show, the Politician The star said: “I was like, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if someone really had the guts to do this?’
“What a punk-rock and feminist statement to have this on your table. “
Now Paltrow is back with another ‘punk rock and feminist statement to have on your table’.
New candle, which is currently only available for pre-order, is marked: “This candle smells like my orgasm”.
The product description explains that the scent is a combination of grapefruit, berry and powder tea.
It reads: “A fitting sequel to that candle – you know that one – this blend is tangy grapefruit, neroli, and ripe blackcurrant berries mixed with powdered tea and Turkish rose absolutes.” for a sexy, surprising and wild fragrance. addictive.”
Like its predecessor, which is still available for purchase, the candle costs $ 75 (£ 60).
Goop is frequently criticized by healthcare professionals for making unsubstantiated scientific claims about the benefits of its products.
