This candle smells like ...

If we are to trust Gwyneth Paltrow, the candle in question smells like her vagina. Could be. I'm not going to spend $75 to find out.*

The good folks at The Cut couldn't resist giving her free advertising and did an article about it. They also decided to test the proposition. Not really, they gave a number of women the opportunity to prove they could be even more narcissistic about it than Gwyneth. Way to go guys.

They didn't ask a single man for his opinion, I suspect because they couldn't count on us to be sufficiently snarky and dismissive about it. I've never know any scented candle of any variety to smell exactly like what it's meant to evoke. That said, if merely evoking that smell, rather than duplicating it, is what the candle is supposed to do, that's what every successful perfume does.

In other news, one of the most-read stories at the site suggests that Brad Pitt is offensively good looking. Yes, offensively, like it's yet another burden making life unfair for women.

* Nobody asked me but, when properly made, which it rarely is, spaghetti alla puttanesca, tastes something like it. Not like Gwyneth's in particular ...
