Gwyneth Paltrow’s sold-out “This Smells Like My Vagina” candle was a surprising hit and it turns out one major celebrity is one of the biggest fans.
While speaking to The Cut, Goop collaborator Douglas Little revealed that Elton John bought “a ton” of the candles.
“Elton John bought a ton of them. Like a lot. Like, a lot a lot. He’s a fan. We have been hounded and stalked by so many people [trying to get one]. I saw the candle being sold on eBay for a ridiculous price,” Little said.
He added, “Just saying the word — vagina! — is shocking to some people. Why the f**k is that? There’s no reason. It’s this beautiful, sacred thing and yet in our society and in many societies there is a lot of stigma and shame. I think people are sick of that.”
He also commented on Martha Stewart’s statement on “Watch What Happens Live” where she assumes “horny men” are why the candle sold-out.
Little added, “I would say that about 92 per cent of our customers for this product are female. When was the last time a bunch of horny guys were out buying scented candles?”
If you are one of the many who are looking to get their hands on the Goop candle, they are back in stock as of Friday. But hurry, they likely won’t last long.
