You Can’t Get Gwenyth Paltrow’s Private Parts Candle, It’ Sold Out
The candle was advertised as smelling like Gwenyth Paltrow's vagina. It sells for $63 and has been so popular that the first run of the product has sold out. According to the Guardian, the candle has turned into a viral sensation. You might be wondering what ingredients go into recreating Gwenyth's aroma. Well, I'm glad you asked: The main ones include: "geranium, citrusy bergamot, cedar absolutes juxtaposed with damask rose and ambrette seed."
This has the entrepreneur in me all fired up. I'm mossy with money making ideas. If Gwenyth's candle is selling so well, why can't there be an entire line of celebrity scents? You could have Steve Buschemi's feet, Danny Devito's ear, Johnny Depp's hair and Sandra Bullock's breath.
I know a winning idea, and this is one. I'll call it Celeb-U-Stank and the tag line will be, "Come get a whiff." The secondary revenue stream potential here is in merchandising. Just think of the T-shirts, "I Smelled George Clooney's armpit and all I got was this stupid T-shirt." Or the bumper stickers, "Honk if you know what Brad Pitt's tennis shoes smell like."
I haven't had the pleasure to smell Gwenyth's candle just yet. I'll get around to it. But let me tell you what I do smell: money. I smell filthy, greasy money.
