Sometimes, products that appear to be strange or bizarre initially shock the world when they become huge commercial successes. Take, for instance, the Pet Rock, which made millions off of willing consumers in the 1980s.
Earlier this year, strange product pandemonium struck again, when actress Gwyneth Paltrow released a $75 candle online that, supposedly, smells like her vagina.
Most of the internet reacted to the promotion of this product the way that you would expect people to react to the idea of a candle that smells like a vagina. But, despite all of the hate online, the candle sold out–and it sold out rapidly.
Now, Neo-Soul Icon Erykah Badu is taking a page out of Gwyneth Paltrow’s book. She is joining the vagina-scented products bandwagon with a fragrance that, supposedly, smells like her vagina.
The news came in an interview with 10 Magazine about the launch of her online store, Badu World Market, which opens February 20th.
When asked how the scent was made, Badu stated: “I took lots of pairs of my panties, cut them up into little pieces and burned them. Even the ash is part of it.”
She even has a name for the product. It will be called Badu’s P***y.
And, just like the internet laughed and scoffed at the $75 Gwyneth Paltrow candle, it will inevitably do the same when it comes to this new, vagina-scented fragrance. But, while the internet will laugh at this, Kiss-FM is boldly predicting that, like the Gwyneth Paltrow candle, Erykah Badu’s vagina-scented fragrance will most certainly sell out, and sell out quickly.
