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.

Hopefully, to make the candle scent, Gwyneth went for a long run in 90 degree weather and hadn’t showered in a week. Yum!
I think that candle had an orgasem
Why is anyone buying this scent- man or woman? Why would anyone want their home filled with this scent?
Zero wicked that be a scent LOL
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…)
Liberals have no shame nor moral underpinning. This example says more about Paltrow’s soul than anything else.
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.
I wonder how many months are going to pass until visitors finally stop asking that woman “mackerel for dinner, love?”
This comment is so underrated. She’s just lucky it didn’t happen mid July…
Funniest shit I have read in a long time!
Great advertising for the real thing.
