Jacob Elordi Just Had 1 Question About That Saltburn Candle

Jacob Elordi has finally shared his take on the now famous candlestick based on one of Saltburn’s most memorable scenes.

For those who need a quick refresher, Saltburn has dominated the conversation since its release last month, thanks to some of its most outrageous sequences.

One of the scenes in question features Jacob’s character Felix masturbating in the bathroom, only for Oliver (played by Barry Keoghan) to sneak in after him and *ahem* slurp up the remains.

This moment in the film later inspired several fans to create candles inspired by “Jacob Elordi’s Bathwater,” which quickly went viral after being discovered on Etsy.

Jacob had just one question about the candle when asked during an interview on The Tonight Show, joking: “I want to know who makes the money.”

“The first thing I did was, ‘Great, where’s my money?’,” the Euphoria star added.

The Priscilla actor then inhaled the scent of the candle and said it smelled “like the laundry room.”

However, Jacob isn’t the only Saltburn actor to weigh in on the popularity.

Lead actor Barry Keoghan has joked about buying them in bulk, while Rosamund Pike also made a good point when she was gifted one on the Golden Globes red carpet.

As well as the candles, Saltburn’s bathtub scene also inspired a cocktail that proved popular with fans of the film on TikTok.
