Published Jan 23, 2020Tomorrow, Goop guru Gwyneth Paltrow will release her new Netflix series The Goop Lab — a show that is a little too boring for its own good. In hyping up its release, however, Gwyneth has proven to be a master troll with the release of her vagina-scented candle. Now, she says the product is "punk rock."
For those who haven't been keeping track of Gwyneth's waxy vag products, she recently released a candle that was branded "This Smells Like My Vagina." It retailed for $75 USD and sold out almost instantly.
Appearing on Late Night with Seth Meyers, she explained how she arrived at the perfect fusion of viral clickbait and real-life vulvic scents.
"So it sort of started as a joke," she said. "I was with [perfumer] Douglas Little for his brand Heretic, and we were kind of messing around and I smelled this beautiful thing and I was like, 'This smells like my vagina', and I was kidding, obviously."
"We were on mushrooms," she joked. "No, we weren't!"
Then, she dropped the ultimate quote: "But then it actually became kind of a funny thing, where it was really funny to us but also a little bit punk rock."
There you have it. Gwyneth Paltrow is keeping the spirit of punk rock alive, one $75 vag candle at a time.
