Jacob Elordi finally sniffed the 'Saltburn' bathwater candle and thinks it smells like detergent
  • Jacob Elordi smelled a "Saltburn"-themed scented candle on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon."
  • The candle is meant to smell like Elordi's bathwater from an explicit scene in "Saltburn."

Jacob Elordi finally got a whiff of that infamous scented candle created in his honor.

Etsy sellers began selling candles labeled "Jacob Elordi's bathwater" after an explicit scene in "Saltburn" went viral.

In the scene, Elordi's character, Felix, masturbates in a bathtub, unaware that he is being spied on by his friend, Oliver (Barry Keoghan). After Felix leaves the bathroom, Oliver enters the bathtub and slurps the remaining bathwater.

Elordi appeared on Thursday's episode of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," and host Jimmy Fallon gifted him a candle.

The "Saltburn" actor briefly smelled the candle and then pretended to slurp it.

"It smells like a washing room. Like detergent," Elordi said. "His clothes are clean."

Elordi told Fallon that he became aware of the candles after his "Priscilla" costar Cailee Spaeny sent him videos about the growing trend.

"I want to know who's making the money, you know?" he said. "Like, 'Great. Where's my money?'"

Although the bathtub scene is not the only explicit scene in "Saltburn," it is the most talked about scene on social media.

In a recent interview with Business Insider, the movie's production designer, Suzie Davies, said that Keoghan was actually drinking a mixture of yogurt, milk, and water in the scene. They also filmed the moment four times.

"Every one he did was a different kind of slurp," Davies said.

While viewers found the bathtub scene disturbing, Elordi defended the scene in an interview with USA Today.

"It wasn't a shock meant to make people's skin crawl," Elordi said. "It was all about devotion and love."

The movie's director, Emerald Fennell, also told Time that she didn't think the scene was shocking.

"It's incredibly sexy," Fennell said. "To me, the bathtub is just an incredibly erotic scene."

"Saltburn" is available to stream on Prime Video.
