You might not expect it right away, but the British singer Elton John (72) turns out to be a big fan of Gwyneth Paltrows (47) latest invention: the Vagina candle. According to perfumer Douglas Little, the singer immediately purchased a whole bunch of copies. 

It was big news about a week ago: Gwyneth Paltrow sold a scented candle on the website of her lifestyle brand Goop with the remarkable name ‘This Smells Like My Vagina’. The candle sold as sweet rolls. And according to perfumer Douglas Little, who helped Gwyneth design the candle, the item also has some famous fans. “Elton John has bought a whole bunch of candles,” he explains to The Cut. “A lot of. As in: very much. He is a fan. ”And he is not alone, because the item was sold out in no time, much to the despair of many interested parties. “We have been hunted and stalked by so many people,” says Little. “I saw that the candle was even sold on eBay for an amazing price.”

Still, the perfumer wants to clarify something. “The press really jumped on the idea that the scent of the candle is also the scent of Gwyneth’s vagina. That is not the case, “he said. “It’s called: ‘This Smells Like My Vagina’, with which we refer to the person holding the candle. It is speculative and fun. “
