For those who may have missed it, Goop founder Gwyneth Paltrow is selling a candle for $75 that “smells like my vagina.” (Yes, it’s already sold out.)

But don’t worry, if you’re looking for a candle that smells like a celebrity’s nether regions—look no further. 

On Saturday, comedian Adam Ray jokingly challenged Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to release a candle that smells like his balls. 

“It was only a matter of time until normal scented candles would be out of style,” Ray wrote on Instagram. “Your move Yankee Candle Co. Time to get [The Rock] to sell candles that smell like his balls.”

“Price is Right ONE DOLLAR her, and sell them for $74 #vaginacandles #gwynethpaltrow #balls #therock,” he added.

Of course, it didn’t take long for The Rock to respond.

And his response is priceless. 

“Brother I tried to make those candles but I kept burning my balls,” he said. “So I moved on to shampoo #scentofsac.”

Even Paltrow chimed in after catching a whiff of the joke. “This is fucking priceless,” she wrote. “#deceased.”

Wondering what Paltrow’s candle smells like? According to Goop’s website, it’s made up of “geranium, citrusy bergamot, and cedar absolutes with Damask rose and ambrette seed.” Yes, we have a lot of questions.
