It always stinks of a publicity stunt whenever Gwyneth Paltrow releases one of her bougie new products and her recent “This Smells Like My Vagina” candle smells exactly the same.
Gwyneth claims she was high on mushrooms when she came up with the idea of the candle, described as a blend of geranium, bergamot, cedar and other stuff that “puts us in mind of fantasy, seduction, and a sophisticated warmth.”
I’m not sure what THAT smells like, but I’m pretty sure her candles smell like money.
The candles sold out, thanks to Elton John who probably snatched a bunch to burn during future performances of his iconic song “Candle in the Wind.”
Today comedian Matt Brown joins us to figure out if Gwyneth Paltrow’s scented candles could be considered a fossil fuel.
