In early 2020, movie star and lifestyle mogul Gwyneth Paltrow released a new scented candle through her popular Goop label. That, in and of itself, isn't newsworthy, but what is is the purported scent attached to said candle? Titled "This Smells Like My V*gina," Paltrow and Goop claim that the candle's blend of "geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar absolutes juxtaposed with Damask rose and ambrette seed" smells like exactly what the name says.
The candle sold out quickly, guaranteeing only a select few lucky souls the chance to decide for themselves whether or not there's truth in Goop's advertising. For the rest of us who were too slow to purchase one of these remarkable novelty items, there's still plenty of bizarre scented candles to choose from. Here are some of the weirdest and wildest sounding candles that are actually still available online.
