Gwyneth Paltrow reveals controversial vagina scent candle is back in stock on her lifestyle website Goop

VAGINA-SCENTED candles are back on the market according to the quirky product's founder, Gwyneth Paltrow.

The actress, who released her This Smells Like My Vagina product on her lifestyle website Goop this year, confessed after huge demand more had been made.

Yet appearing on US chat show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Hollywood favourite let slip a few secrets about the product which has left some completely stunned.

After admitting more of the candle, which is packaged in a black and white design, was available to buy she said of its bizarre creation: "I smelled something and I said this as a joke."

She later added: "It's not really supposed to smell like a vagina."

Jimmy couldn't resist taking a whiff for himself and surmised: "It smells nice.

"It smells kind of a little masculine, kind of woody.

"It doesn't really, you know what I'm saying?"

Previously, eager buyers have stumped up £57 for the product.

The This Smells Like My Vagina candle is described as being “funny, gorgeous, sexy, and beautifully unexpected.”

Gwyneth even gave fans an explanation as to how the candle was created, in the product description.

The Goop website explains: “This candle started as a joke between perfumer Douglas Little and GP—the two were working on a fragrance, and she blurted out, “Uhhh..this smells like a vagina”—but evolved into a funny, gorgeous, sexy, and beautifully unexpected scent.

“(That turned out to be perfect as a candle—we did a test run at an In goop Health, and it sold out within hours.)

“It’s a blend of geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar absolutes juxtaposed with Damask rose and ambrette seed that puts us in mind of fantasy, seduction, and a sophisticated warmth.”

Gwyneth also chatted to the host about her upcoming Netflix series, The Goop Lab, and fans can expect exorcisms and group orgasms.

The series has six episodes and shows the actress exploring various wellness practices from the wacky to the sexual.

The Iron Man star, who stunned at the recent Golden Globes in a see-through dress, also teases an experience with a psychic.

Other topics explored include energy healing, female pleasure and psychedelic drugs.
