Woman Relives Horror Of Exploding Candle That Smells Like Gwyneth Paltrow’s Vagina

Well, it may be a good idea to stay away from things that have the words “smell” and “vagina” in the marketing slogan.

One poor woman found that out when the “This Smells Like My Vagina” candle, peddled by actress Gwyneth Paltrow, exploded in the woman’s home.

Why you would enter a contest to win this particular candle is beyond anyone’s best guess. But hey, it’s being given away and some people may want to know what Paltrow’s … um, never mind.

Anyway, back to the story, as relayed by the New York Post.

“The candle exploded and emitted huge flames, with bits flying everywhere,” Jody Thompson, 50, of the U.K. told The Sun.

Eventually, Thompson got the candle “under control” and afterward did the most sensible thing. She threw it out the front door.

“It could have burned the place down,” Thompson said. “It was scary at the time, but funny looking back that Gwyneth’s vagina candle exploded in my living room.”

Paltrow has not been reached for comment on her vagina, the candle, or the combination of both.

  1. I recall when I first heard of it, so I went to the “Goop” site. She was selling them at $75 a candle, and at the time, “Sold Out” was stamped over the item. She made a killing on what’s likely purchased as a novelty item. (Now, if it smelled like Cotton Candy, well, then again, I wish they all did…)

    • Agreed. I just don’t get the utter nastiness of our “culture”. No one has any modesty or morals anymore. Yet this is called “empowering” by liberals, yet saying that if you are famous then women let you grab them by the p&&sy is the worst thing to have ever been uttered.
