A vagina-scented candle almost caused disaster for one woman as it exploded into flames in her living room. The “This Smells Like My Vagina” candle caused an “inferno” and “could have burned the place down”.
50 year-old British woman, Jody Thompson won the risqué product in an online quiz. However, her prize caused her little joy as she lit it as a 50cm flame leapt from the candle and out of the glass jar.
American actress, Gwyneth Paltrow released the vagina scented candle early last year and stock sold out in a matter of hours. The candle is described on Gwyneth’s Goop site as “funny, gorgeous, sexy and beautifully unexpected”.
Media consultant, Jody told British publication The Sun that the candle “exploded and emitted huge flames, with bits flying everywhere.”
No further damage took place at her home in Kilburn, North London, as Jody and her partner David Snow eventually got it under control and threw the vagina scented candle “out the front door”.
Goop’s website also lists specific warnings for using the vagina scented candle, including burning it within sight, keeping it away from things that catch fire, placing it on a heat-resistant surface, and not burning it for more than two hours at a time.
