The Rock Jokes About Making Genital-Scented Candles Like Gwyneth Paltrow
You may have recently heard about the candles Gwyneth Paltrow is selling that smell like her vagina.
If you hadn't heard about them, you have now. They were being flogged for $75 (£57) a pop and they have SOLD OUT.
Given that this is evidently the nature of the times we're living in, whether we like it or not, comedian Adam Ray suggested on Instagram that The Yankee Candle Company should get in on the action by selling candles that smell of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's balls.

Time to get @therock to sell candles that smell like his balls:ok_hand:Price is Right ONE DOLLAR her, and sell them for $74. #vaginacandles #gwenythpaltrow #balls #therock

Responding to the post, the 47-year-old wrestler-turned-actor joked - I think - that he had tried to create such a product in the past, but it hadn't quite gone to plan.
He wrote: "Brother I tried to make those candles but I kept burning my balls. So I moved on to shampoo."
Now there's an image for us all to enjoy. He also added the hashtag '#scentofsac', which I think really adds a certain something to the story.
Next thing you know, the OG-genital-scented-candle-maker Paltrow herself was getting involved.
She said: "This is f****ing priceless."
Unlike her vagina candle then, which you could have got for the sum of $75 - if it wasn't sold out.
Indeed, Johnson may have been joking about making a sack-scented candle, but who's to say it wouldn't sell? On paper, you'd think nobody would want to relax in a bathroom that smells like The Rock's wrestling trunks drying on a radiator, but then who predicted people would be clamouring for a vag-candle?
Paltrow's unfathomably popular creation started out as a bit of a joke between her and perfumer Douglas Little.
The Goop website explains how the actor blurted out, "Uhhh, this smells like a vagina," as the pair were working on a fragrance. The description goes on to say that the candle 'evolved into a funny, gorgeous, sexy, and beautifully unexpected scent'.
Yes, you read that right - it has a 'funny' scent, apparently.
So, what exactly does a funny vagina scent smell like I hear you ask? Well, according to Paltrow it's a blend of geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar absolutes, juxtaposed with Damask rose and ambrette seed.
Now I don't know about you, but I reckon that's gonna smell pretty damn hilarious.
