Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop brand has managed to do what no other brand has done – make home decor sexy.

Candle

The release of the “This Smells Like My Vagina” candle has made it the most coveted item on many gift lists, ensuring it is often sold out on the website.

However one man from Texas probably regrets his purchase of the $75 (about R1 000) candle after claiming it exploded on his bedside table. According to reports, Colby Watson is seeking a jury trial and damages of $5 million after the incident.

Goop has responded to the claim as a “frivolous attempt to secure an outsized payout” and said that the candle was put through standardized testing to ensure its safety.

However the lifestyle brand could have a hard time explaining itself due to a similar incident occurring in March this year.
