Martha Stewart comments on Goop’s $75 vadge candle: I wouldn’t buy that


Unfortunately, we are all aware there exists a candle that smells like Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina, or at least what she wants us to believe it smells like. We also know that her $75 vanity product is completely sold out, which I hope to hell means that only five were made in the first place. And, of course, if Gwyneth’s latest anything is in the news, Martha Stewart’s opinion is not far behind. Martha appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen last week and one lady called in to get Martha’s thoughts on the made-to-be-infamous candle. It’s no surprise Martha was not interested. But she was actually more supportive of Gwyneth putting herself out there, so to speak, then I thought she’d be:

[From YouTube via Seriously OMG! WTF?]

She (Gwyneth) has a candle that’s called Smells Like My Vagina and it’s sold out

I’m sure it’s sold out. I mean, she does, uhm, that kind of irritating (pause) read… she’s trying to zhuzh up the public to listen to her. And that’s great. Let her do her thing. And, uh – I wouldn’t buy that candle.

So, to be clear, you don’t want a candle that smells like Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina?

Not necessarily

At this point, Martha and Gwyneth have formed a symbiotic relationship. Not that they need to, but they enjoy feeding off each other. I don’t think they are secretly friends or anything, but I am fairly certain they are more than happy to stoke feud rumors to the media as long as they can. I also really hope Gwyneth sends Martha a case of her candles and a note that reads, ‘heard you didn’t have any!’

I appreciate Martha’s comments about Gwyneth’s method of creating a buzz. Obviously, the signature Martha Stewart shade is steeped into her comment, but at the same time, game recognizes game. People are talking about Gwyneth and Goop and her out-of-touch products. In a landscape filled with lifestyle gurus, even if she is the self-proclaimed inventor of such, Gwyneth has to find a way to stay relevant, especially if she’s supposedly retiring from acting to focus full-time on Goop. If having a gimmicky candle gets traffic to her site, then her tactics are proving effective. I hope it’s a bunch of Gwyneth sycophants buying her candle and not, as Martha suggested, “a lot of guys who are horny.”. But I do agree with Martha, these types of ploys from Gwyneth don’t bug me too much. I’d rather she sell candles smelling like her various body parts than promoting any kind of pseudo-science so, way to go, Goop, I guess.

But, just to be clear, like Martha, I don’t want a candle that smells like Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina either.

    Martha is the queen. As a woman looking so good in her 70s(I assume she’s had work done) I can only hope to look that good at her age.

    • Annaloo says:

      And Gwyneth is the Queen of Quackery!!
      Long live Martha!

    • ElenaBear says:

      Martha is a badass, legit & the real deal.
      Goop is an ignorant, scientifically illiterate fraud.

      as long as Paltrow‘s antics only affect dumb rich white women that want to be like her, I have no problem. Please, make their wallets hemorrhage dollars w/all that lucrative stupidity for all I care (fools & their money…). I just hope it doesn’t affect anybody else.

      I kind of hope this is all one big experiment & master trolling from Goop but it’s not. thatd be awesome since Goop can have rare moments of lucidity & self-awareness but yea, naah . This idiocy is real. (sidenote: I’m forever delighted by Snoop & Martha’s real life friendship of a decade + – they both are grandparents too! (honestly Snoop doesn’t age imo he’s looked the same since the 90s lmaoooo ❤️❤️😂)

      • Alita says:

        @Elenabear, I have a real issue with pseudoscience and the people it affects.

        I don’t think we should think it okay that a charlatan is selling to a demographic one might not be especially fond of. And regardless of your views, many more people are influenced than purchase.

        As an example, this sentiment fueled the antivaxxer//delayedvaxxer reality, early caught onto by “dumb rich white women” (your words) which currently holds a very real death count. I don’t think Smells Like My Vagina candles will cause death, but given the ‘cleanse’ type products and other body-affecting ‘treatments’ GOOP has and will continue to offer? Even if it’s the long-death-game of telling people not to use regular sunscreen because it’s *bad*, telling a mentally ill person that a cleanse can fix your anxiety and depression, or recommending anyone not living on a farm drink raw milk, it’s all bad. I don’t get why anybody would be okay to have any part of society affected by this garbage.

    When I saw the name of the candle, my first thought was, “How much attention does this woman need?” So yeah, needless to say, I agree with Martha lol

    • Jackie O'Glasses says:

      GP is insecure and try hard. People who are comfortable with themselves don’t feel the need to tell the world they have a 22 year old stripper’s ass and a vadge that smells like a candle.

    • LadyMTL says:

      I’m no Goop fan, but I’ll give her this: she knows how to bring attention to her brand and her site. No-one would be talking about this candle if she had named it something generic like “This candle smells like freesia” or whatnot. So as annoying as she is, I’ll give her points for knowing how to keep herself in the headlines.

      • Annaloo says:

        I would have given her props if she’d marketed a candle called “This candle smells like my enema” bc that is what matches the usual stream of sh*t and verbal bile that comes out of her mouth. It would have been apt, at least.

        There’s always next season’s shocker candle!

    If Goop ever becomes a real threat to Martha and her reign as Queen Lifestyle Guru then expect the claws to really come out. I get a sense of this just being Martha giving Goop a little pat on the head for the valiant effort. From what I’ve read about the candle the name came about as a joke when Gwyneth and her partner were testing candle scents (like “Oh, this smells really nice, like my vagina haha”) so when it came time to actually name it and market it they decided to use their little inside joke. Her self absorption knows no bounds.

    • Annaloo. says:

      Keyword: IF


      No WAY Gwyneth could ever match Martha’s ubiquity and – honestly – much more accessible approach to lifestyle. Gwyneth can’t. Remember the quote, ” I can’t pretend to know what it’s like to make $25,000 a year”? She spoke true.

      Martha taught fellow inmates how to make crafts. Gwyneth can not and NEVER will touch that.

      Of course she has to talk about her flappy vagina– it’s the only way anyone will give her the time of day. It’s not like she’s not trying for attention: name dropping Brad Pitt again, wearing see through clothes…. the power of the pussy is that anyone can command attention talking about it, and Gwyneth is using this button up!

  4. Va Va Kaboom says:

    Huh, so that’s how “zhuzh” is spelled. There’s my one new thing for the day. Otherwise… I’ve got nothing.

  5. SamC says:

    Brooklyn Decker did a funny IG story of unboxing/smelling the Goop candles. Andy Roddick’ makes a brief, funny appearance in the story too. At the end she was polite but from her description sounds like a really heavy perfumes scent. Yuck!

    • AnnaKist says:

      I’m not at all surprised it would smell of heavy perfume. After all, GP’s peachie is nothing like other women’s peachies. Hers is heaven-scent (!), bestowed by a powerful, magical being to signify her specialness among mere mortal females. Why, even the term “lady garden” was coined in her honour. It stands to reason that such a candle would carry the heady scent of a Summer garden full of roses, jasmine, jonquils and lavender.

  6. manda says:

    This candle thing really gets on my nerves because no, your vadge does not smell like citrus fruit. Nor does lana del ray’s taste like pepsi cola. Stop trying to get attention in this way

  7. Jerusha says:

    Do members of GP’s family ever feel embarrassment for her? If I were Apple I’d be mortified.

  8. Liz version 700 says:

    If you guys haven’t seen it, google Stephen Colbert’s bit about Goop’s science lab. I laughed so hard I could. It breathe.

  9. naoimipaige99 says:

    GP is so pathetic! I cannot stand the chick!

  10. Charfromdarock says:

    If you follow Dr Jen Gunter on social media she is always dismissing whatever ridiculous claim GOOP is making actual science.

  11. Mandy says:

    Oh, that Martha. She is a GD QUEEN forever and always.

  12. Dorothy says:

    Now that’s a girl with her head up her own vagina #gwyneth

  13. Carolnr says:

    Why is she so obsessed with her vagina & anything to do with it?
