If Gwyneth Paltrow‘s ‘vagina’ and ‘orgasm’ candles are a bit too pricey, one UK novelty company is selling its own sex-themed candle for a cheaper price — and a cheaper kind of sex.
Yorkshire-based candle company Flaming Cr*p is had debuted the ‘One Night Stand(le),’ a scented candle which is meant to evoke memories of a singly night of sex.
To achieve that special fragrance, the candle has notes of pizza, passion fruit martini, condoms, and a taxi.
Sexy! Novelty candle brand Flaming Cr*p is selling a £14.99 ($19.50) scented candle meant to smell like a one night stand
The ingredients: It has notes of pizza, passion fruit martini, latex (like condoms), and new car (like the taxi ride home)
The funny candle is selling online for £14.99 ($19.50).
It’s four layers of fragrance include pizza — ‘all good dates start with dinner,’ says the brand’ and a passion fruit martini.
‘Then it’s time to get lucky, with a luscious latex aroma (play safe) before your sneaky 3am taxi ride home, as the candle burns out to a stunning “new car smell,” the brand says.
While people may not always feel good coming home from a one night stand, they can feel good about buying these ethically-made candles, which are crafted from vegan soy wax and put in recycled packaging and labels.
‘Many people’s dating lives have become disasters over the course of the last year, the One Night Standle takes you on a sensual journey through dinner and drinks, with scents that will remind you of sex and that awkward taxi journey home!’ said Oliver Burr, co-founder of Flaming Cr*p.
‘We hope this can be both a fun reminder of dating disasters, and what is to come for those that have spent the last year on their own!’
Inspo? Last year, Gwyneth Paltrow debuted a scented candle called ‘This Smells Like My Vagina,’ which sells for $75
While the candle may be more a joke that a pretty home fragrance, it certainly makes a less expensive gag gift than one of Gwyneth Paltrow’s viral candles.
Last year, the 48-year-old debuted a scented candle called ‘This Smells Like My Vagina,’ which sells for $75.
It has notes of geranium, citrusy bergamot, cedar, Damask rose, and ambrette seed — but not, Gwyneth promises, her actual lady parts.
‘The idea [is] that women have been taught to have a certain amount of shame about their body. So, if you just light a candle that says “This Smells Like My Vagina” and put it on the coffee table, it’s kind of a punk rock statement,’ Gwyneth said.
The star explained that she was working with perfumer and Heretic founder Douglas Little on a candle and was smelling different fragrances with him when she came up with the odd name.
‘I smelled something and I said this as a joke,’ Gwyneth told Jimmy Kimmel. ‘Next thing I know it’s on my website.’
‘It’s not really supposed to smell like a vagina,’ Gwyneth added.
Ta-da! She soon followed the vagina candle up with an equally outrageous item: a candle called ‘This Smells Like My Orgasm’
Hot: It, too, costs $75 and has notes of tart grapefruit, neroli, cassis berries, gunpowder tea, and Turkish rose
Gwyneth has also added a votive size and a roll-on perfume of the sent.
She soon followed the vagina candle up with an equally outrageous item: a candle called ‘This Smells Like My Orgasm.’
It, too, costs $75 and has notes of tart grapefruit, neroli, cassis berries, gunpowder tea, and Turkish rose.
Heretic founder Douglas Little said: ‘Where Orgasm is vibrant, bright, and uplifting, Vagina is more deeply sensual, warm, and seductive. You kind of can’t have one without the other.’
The most recent addition to the lineup is a candle called ‘This Smells Like My Prenup,’ which has notes of grapefruit, bergamot, and raspberry.
