In the unlikely event you haven't seen it yet, Saltburn gave viewers no shortage of things to discuss over the festive season — though it was one particular moment involving Barry Keoghan, Jacob Elordi, and a fateful bathtub that fans have been unable to forget.
In the haunting scene, we see Barry’s character, Ollie, secretly watching while Felix, played by Jacob, masturbates in the bath.
Once he’s finished, Felix hops out of the tub and leaves the room — prompting Ollie to jump into the empty tub and start lapping up the remaining bathwater as it trickles down the drain.
Needless to say, it quickly became one of the most talked-about things on the internet, and before long, someone took it upon themself to start selling a candle that smells like “Jacob Elordi's Bathwater” — perhaps inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow’s infamous vagina candle.
In a testament to the internet’s collective thirstiness, the candle quickly took the world by storm. And soon enough, Saltburn’s cast members were getting their hands on it too.
In an interview with Variety, Barry — the bathwater slurper himself — joked that he already owned 10 of the candles.
For what it’s worth, the Euphoria star has previously embraced the online frenzy surrounding the bathtub scene, telling Variety that he felt “very proud” to have Barry “guzzling” his character’s bathwater.

He also said in an interview with Stream Wars that he was “really excited” when he first read the scene because “you don’t really see things like that in mainstream movies a lot of the time.”

“It’s just great that [writer and director] Emerald [Fennell] was allowed to push those boundaries and expose people like that, I think,” he added.
