After shocking the world by selling a “vagina” candle, Gwyneth Paltrow has taken things a step further, because clearly 2020 wasn't weird enough already.

The actress-turned-mogul’s lifestyle brand Goop and has revealed the follow up to the infamous vagina candle… and it’s called “This Smells Like My Orgasm”.

Yup, that’s right, you now have the opportunity to own a scent that smells like the star’s most intimate moments.

Gwyneth first set the internet on abuzz when she announced the “This Smells Like My Vagina” candle through her Goop brand in January. She described the idea as being "punk rock and feminist" and it quickly sold out, so it’s fair to see why Goop believe this new aroma will be a big seller too.

Judging by the first reaction on social media, some fans can’t wait to get their hands on “Orgasm”, while many wondered how the testing was carried out.

What a year 2020 has been, from global pandemics to candles smelling like orgasms. But could this be the climax?

The news was revealed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, on Tuesday night as the actress chatted about her lifestyle empire with the host.

Speaking remotely via a video link, thanks to the coronavirus lockdown, Jimmy said:

You’re always kind of in the news, one way or another, and the one thing I saw that was a big thing, was that you had a candle. The name of the candle, it was sold out…

Gwyneth added:

It’s pretty funny. The idea was sort of like a punk rock, feminist, kind of like… and we have a new one, which actually might be more for you to give to your wife.

The “This Smells Like My Orgasm” candle is already available to pre-order from Goop and will start shipping on 25 June.

You can also rest assured knowing that the product is, according to the Goop website, a “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.”

Special care instructions have also been provided for the candle. “Candles are made with 100 per cent natural unbleached cotton wicks which require special attention,” the description reads. “Please take care to trim to ⅛ ‘before every use.”

Alrighty then, whatever you say Gwyneth.
