Not Just Any Candle

Featured on Snopes today: Gwyneth Paltrow markets a pricey candle with a very special scent, Rep. Ilhan Omar is accused of giving "treasonous" advice to Iran, and much more.

Published Jan 13, 2020

The word “eccentric” has been used to describe the products sold by actor Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle company, Goop. Any number of odd, pricey items can be purchased via the company’s website, including one that generated so much online chatter after it was mentioned in media reports that readers asked us to verify if it was true.

What’s the product? Three hints: Its scent is supposedly reminiscent of a certain body part, you can light it with a match, and it goes for $75 a pop.
