This Smells Like RAZZ’s Vagina

You may have heard about Goop’s new candle titled “This Smells Like My Vagina” where the origins of the scent came from founder Gwyneth Paltrow blurting out in the lab “Uhhh… this smells like a vagina”. This came up in conversation while we were brainstorming our SHAG Week (Sexual Health Awareness and Guidance Week) and we asked ourselves the question: if you could choose a scent to embody the spirit of your vagina, what would you choose? Anyway, we had some very interesting conversations and here’s what some of our committee members came up with (apologies in advance, we’re asking ourselves why we did this too).

“My vagina-scented candle would smell like a Woo Woo cocktail. It’s fun, fruity, and cheeky. Best of all, it’s at all the best parties!”

Sweet & Salted Popcorn – Katrina Bennett, Online Editor/Co-President

“I’m going to go for sweet and salted popcorn. It’s snackable, it’s got variety, and it’s continually surprising you with how great it is!”

Black Cherry – Cameron Townsley, Creative Director

“It’s got to be Yankee Candle’s Black Cherry. Not only is this my favourite scented candle, but the sweet rich smell combined with a saucy name makes this the one.”

Honey & Thyme – Charlotte ‘Fozz’ Forrester, Print Editor/Co-President

“I’m going to go for honey and thyme. It’s a surprising combination of sweet and sophisticated that everyone can learn to love.”

Lavender, Vanilla and Lime – Jaimie Hampton, Deputy Print Editor

“My candle would probably smell like lavender, vanilla and lime because if my vagina could do anything, I’d like it to make people feel calm and comforted in its presence.”

Mr Kipling’s Angel Slices – Sophie Chapman, Copy Editor

“I was going to go for rosemary and mint but my girlfriend said it needed to be more ‘edible’. Also I’m addicted to angel slices and not sophisticated enough for rosemary and mint.”

Pansy, LUSH – Eva Hanly, Social Secretary

“It’d be the Pansy smell from the LUSH perfume range. It is described as having floral and green notes, “giving it a fresh finish, while rosemary and oak moss bring it down to earth”. Chill – just like me.”
