The worst thing about a candle explosion is a candle with a vaginal smell exploding.
Unfortunately, this is what happened to one woman in the UK who remembered her experience with Gwyneth Paltrow’s infamous candle “This Smells Like My Vagina”. The scythe, marketed and distributed through the Goop A-lister brand, started out as a joke but became an international phenomenon.
Despite the ridicule, Paltrow smiled all the way to the bank when it immediately sold its special deal online even with a $ 75 price point. But it turns out the candle could be hiding a dangerous mystery that transcends fungal odor.
Gwyneth Paltrow 2020 started with a candle with the scent of the vagina
No one expected the year to just get weird. However, in January 2020, the most exciting headline dealt with Paltrow ‘s latest controversial Goop offering, a candle with an unusual scent that made it to market in a way.
The description of the product said, “This candle started as a joke between the fragrance of Douglas Little and a GP [Paltrow]. The two were working on a fragrant scent, and she came out, ‘Uhhh seo this smells like a grindstone’ – but it turned out to be a funny, haughty, sexual and unexpectedly beautiful scent. (That was perfect as a candle). “
At least one customer might regret lighting a Goop candle
The scent technically contains notes of geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar absolutes topped with Damask rose, and ambrette seeds. It is a relief for anyone who has been bothered by the Sliding doors star snuff in more synthetic ingredients. However, a woman who claimed to have won the inferno product found fire after she lit the candle.
“The candle exploded and spread great flames, with pieces flying everywhere,” said Jody Thompson. The sun. “I’ve never seen anything like it. The whole thing was ablaze and it was too hot to rub. There was an inferno in the room. ”
She remembered what had happened and what had happened after that, which is not funny but looking back. “It may burn down. It was scary at the time, but funny looking back that Gwyneth ‘s vagina candle exploded in my living room, ”she said.
Another controversial Goop product
Exploding candles to one side, this is not the first time Paltrow has opposed scrutiny because of Goop’s findings.
At one time, the site marketed jade eggs and raised quartz eggs that were supposed to be patiently ingested to help increase sexual pleasure, balance hormonal cycles, help with painful menstruation, and more. The result was against harsh criticism from medical professionals and ultimately, Goop had to pay a $ 145,000 fine for making false medical claims about the eggs.
The same goes for The Mother Load, an expensive prenatal and postnatal vitamin on the site. With a $ 75 price tag, you’d think this “top-of-the-line birth product” would be a truly wonderful employee. But like the jade eggs, that could all be a big scam that could do even more harm than good. The site makes it clear that the claims were not evaluated by the FDA.
Sounds like most Goop products are more luxurious than requirements. And Paltrow should be a little more careful with her candles next time before someone is injured.
