Because you've probably been wondering what Gwyneth Paltrow's vagina smells like your whole life.
Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle website Goop has delivered with some, erm, weird and wonderful products and advice since it launched in 2008. If you remember, Goop once championed the practice of inserting $80 jade or rose quartz eggs into the vagina to "balance hormones, regulate menstrual cycles, prevent uterine prolapse, and increase bladder control". And in 2016, Gwyneth revealed she was into vagina steaming, a controversial beauty treatment.
Well, in other vagina-related news, now you can actually buy a vagina-scented candle.
Apparently, the name for the candle started accidentally, after Gwyneth said: "Uhhh..this smells like a vagina," while testing scents with perfumer Douglas Little.
"With a funny, gorgeous, sexy, and beautifully unexpected scent, this candle is made with 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 product description reads.
And the price of the "beautifully unexpected scent"? $75. Yep, smelling like a vagina doesn't come cheap.
Naturally, the internet had something to say about Goop's latest product.

If you have $75 to spend on a fucking candle that smells like a vagina, you should definitely sit down and stfu the next time you feel like saying “I’m not gonna pay for anyone’s healthcare”.
Sadly, if you wanted a whiff of the real Gwyneth, you're out of luck. The candle is currently sold out. However, there is a waiting list so you can be notified as soon as it comes back in stock.
