Jeremy Clarkson has revealed what his 'b******s'-scented candle smells like you, and you may be pleased to learn that it doesn't actually smell like the TV presenters nether regions.

The former Top Gear host announced that he was flogging a Gwyneth Paltrow inspired scented candle called 'This Smells Like My B******s' following the success of Paltrow's sell-out 'This Smells Like My Vagina' candle.

Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, Clarkson has shared what the candles really smell like and it's probably a lot more pleasant than you'd imagine.

He told Ross: "Gwyneth Paltrow did a candle and said, 'This smells like my vagina'.

'[I've got one and it's called] 'This smells like my bollocks'.

"What it actually smells like is the interior of a Mark 10 Jag - it's got an old leathery smell.'

If you really want to get your hands on Clarkson's b******s candle, you can get one here for £22.50.

A description for the candles reads: "The unique and leathery scent of my car seat, blended with hints of oakmoss and earthy spices.

"A totally unique and bespoke scent, created for Jeremy. There is no other smell like this.... in the world."

Clarkson, 61, launched the candles back in October from his farm Diddly Squat.

Showing off the smelly candles in a clip on the farm's Instagram page, Clarkson said: "Just in, for the Diddly Squat Farm shop... a candle.

"Eat your heart out Gwyneth Paltrow."

Before taking a deep sniff and adding: "Mmm, the great smell of scrotum."

Oh, and if you're wondering what a vagina smells like according to Paltrow, it's a blend of geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar absolutes juxtaposed with Damask rose and ambrette seed - which all sounds very lovely.


Apparently the candle's name started off as a bit of a joke but it stuck - according to a description on the Goop website, Paltrow took a whiff off the fragrance that would be used and remarked to pal Douglas Little: "Uhhh, this smells like a vagina."

Hot off the success of her vagina, Paltrow also launched This Smells Like My Orgasm.

The candles were best sellers on the Goop site, despite the $75 (£60) price tag.
