Jacob Elordi’s ‘Saltburn’ bathwater has inspired a candle

Someone call the authorities. We're all officially sick. It's not enough that Emerald Fennell's Saltburn made our brains rancid with its bathtub scene – Barry Keoghan guzzles Jacob Elordi's semen-infused bathwater – we must immortalise it with a home fragrance too. Someone on this godforsaken thing we call the internet has decided to give into their intrusive thoughts and create a hand-poured soy candle affectionately called "Jacob Elordi's Bathwater".

We have many questions (and concerns). But most of all we'd like to know what it smells like? I'm thinking soapy, a touch of oakmoss, and naturally the faintest whiff of Australian sea salt?

On closer inspection, it appears you can customise the candle's scent choosing from three fragrance combinations. Most importantly, the candle is vegan, completely natural, and non-toxic... almost like the real thing!

While Gwyneth Paltrow carries the crown for the most chaotic candle concepts (This Smells Like My Vagina, anyone?) we have to admit this is candle, which can be found on Etsy at the store Side Hustle Vibes, is a worthy runner up. If you prefer to light up something more PG-rated, take a look at Cool Girl Candles where you can pick up a home fragrance that smells like Jacob Elordi – or any of the internet's boyfriends for that matter – unsullied by the Saltburn reference.

Personally, I might skip the candle. However, I could be convinced by any of the margaritas being served up in a bathtub on TikTok, maybe.
