Although there are dozens of articles about the candle by now I cannot find an actual review. Does the aroma even remotely suggest the warm and pleasant confines of her Holiest of Holys? Or is it simply a nice smell that no one would ever associate with dining at the Y unless they were prompted by the label?

A candle that smells like a $75 vagina? Eh, I suppose I could do worse.

The actual scent description on the website if a bunch of plants and berries so I'm guessing it doesn't really smell like anyone's bits unless they're some sort of woodland faerie.

When you want the very best, price is no object.

I don't know. I think I am going to want a candle that smells like at least a $200 vagina.

Exactly. I enjoy her as an actress, but she's got a history of selling products and ideas that are dangers to vaginal health.

I've never used the poll feature, but this question probably isn't worth it anyway. Would people consider $75 for this candle to be a bigger ripoff if it doesn't actually smell like Paltrow's vagina, or... if it does?

For some it depends on whether or not you would get to prove it to yourself.

"Warning! If your vagina smells like Nicholas Cage, seek medical attention immediately."

OTOH, if one prefers, there really are genitalia-shaped candles, both M and F, out there. I'll leave it to the gentle reader to google up some pictures, if so inclined.
