Well, a penis-smelling equivalent is soon to hit the market with the same design and packaging as Paltrows candle. However, the This Smells Like My Penis will cost $100 $25 more than the Goop candle. And it's trying to make a point about gender inequality.
As it says on the back of the candle:
"This candle smells like a penis and it costs 25% more than its vagina-smelling equivalent. Thats because even though its illegal to pay women less than men, the gender pay gap smells as strong as ever. Burn this candle for the scent of women getting paid 75 cents on the dollar."
Underneath the caption it reads: Learn how to extinguish the gender pay gap Canadianwomen.org
"This Smells Like My Penis candle is no different from The Smells Like My Vagina candle, except for no apparent reason it's worth 25% more," Allegra Wiesenfeld, a junior copywriter for Taxi Agency, the company responsible for the penis candle, told Insider . (Not to be that guy, but $75 to $100 is actually a 33% increase, but obviously that's not the point.)
The wage gap is even more severe among minority groups. According to Canadianwomen.org , indigenous women make 65 cents on the dollar and women of color make about 67 cents on the dollar. In the United States, women earned 85 percent of what men earned in 2018, according to the Pew Research Center .
The gender pay gap doesnt solely exist in North America its a worldwide epidemic. According to the World Economic Forum (WEF), women, on average, get paid 63% of what men get paid. While this is somehow an improvement from the past few decades, at the rate were going now, the WEF says it will take 217 years to close the wage gap.
"With the candle, we want to hammer home the point that [Canadian] women are still paid 75 cents on the dollar for the same work," Wiesenfeld said.
The candle will be available for purchase online in Canada. We can't confirm exactly what it smells like, but here's hoping it's something fresh .
