Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed the follow-up to her ‘vagina’ candle is called This Smells Like My Orgasm.

ICYMI the Goop founder caused quite the stir earlier this year when her lifestyle brand sold out of a candle that smells like her vagina.

But if you thought that was peak Goop, think again as the actor turned wellness entrepreneur has now announced her next candle, and it is equally as, er, unique.

Yep, the latest addition to the scented candle collection will be This Smells Like My Orgasm, and just like with its previous counterpart we can’t help but wonder about the testing process.

The Avengers star, 47, unveiled the latest unusually titled product during a remote appearance on a US chat show.

The This Smells Like My Orgasm candle is listed on the Goop website, though for the time being is only available to US customers, selling for $75 (approximately £60).

A description of the unusual candle on the website reads: “A fitting follow-up to that candle – you know the one – this blend is made with tart grapefruit, neroli, and ripe cassis berries blended with gunpowder tea and Turkish rose absolutes for a scent that’s sexy, surprising, and wildly addictive.”

We might just take your word on that, Gwyneth.

The wellness entrepreneur proudly showed off the candle on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, telling the host it “might be more for you, to give to your wife”.

The candle comes in a box embossed with fireworks.

Elsewhere during the interview, proud mother Paltrow discussed Apple, 16, and Moses, 14, her two children with ex-husband Chris Martin.

Moses made a brief appearance, sharing an update about his musical pursuits and revealing he is currently focused on playing the guitar.

And Paltrow revealed that Apple, who celebrated her 16th birthday in May, has started driving.

“I think it’s good for them to learn early,” Paltrow said.

“One time we were on a resort and in a golf cart and I let her sit in my lap and steer, so she’s been illegally operating motor vehicles all her life. So she’s ready to roll.”

Back in April Paltrow shared that her daughter thinks she should be spending time in coronavirus lockdown making more vagina eggs and candles.

The Goop founder shared a photograph of a to-do list made by Apple, in her notebook.

“Make more vagina eggs and candles,” the note reads with Gwyneth captioning the post: “interpretation of my to-do list #quaranteen.”

Paltrow recently starred in The Goop Lab, a Netflix documentary series about her lifestyle and wellness brand.

Goop is often criticised by health professionals for making unsubstantiated health claims, such as the importance of vaginal steaming and the use of vaginal eggs.

In 2018 the lifestyle company paid out more than £100,000 in civil penalties over products including the egg-shaped stones, intended to be placed into the vagina to improve health.

Prosecutors in eight California counties announced the settlement after an investigation found some of Goop’s health claims were unfounded.
