Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina candle allegedly exploded in somebody’s home

Help, my pussy is on fire!

Wow 2021 really woke up and chose chaos. In just 19 days, Kanye West and Jeffree Star were rumoured to be lovers, Tr*mp was banned from just about every social media platform known to man, and we’re all bopping to sea shanties for some reason. 

If you’re somehow managing to enjoy it, you’ll be pleased to hear there’s more chaos and confusion, with one of Gwyneth Paltrow’s infamous vagina-scented Goop candles allegedly exploding in a woman’s house. According to reports, Jody Thompson won the candle in a quiz and after lighting it in her room said “it exploded and emitted huge flames, with bits flying everywhere.”

If you’re unfamiliar with the candle – The Smells Like My Vagina – its blend of geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar absolutes juxtaposed with Damask rose and ambrette allegedly smells like a vagina... or at least Paltrow’s, who joked about it with perfumer Douglas Little when they were developing a fragrance together. 

“It could have burned the place down. It was scary at the time, but funny looking back that Gwyneth’s vagina candle exploded in my living room,” she added. According to the New York Post, a Goop representative said they weren’t able to verify its authenticity, but “as a precaution, we’ve alerted the manufacturer to the woman’s issue and have also reached out to her to send her some goop products to help pass the days in quarantine.”

Of course, Paltrow’s vagina-scented candle isn’t the only one out on the market, because why would it be?! If an exploding candle concerns you, there’s also Erykah Badu’s candle, created by burning her own underwear.
