Watch: Jacob Elordi's UNHINGED Reaction to 'Bathwater' Candle

Even Jacob Elordi can't get enough of Felix. 

The Saltburn star recently had the opportunity to sniff one of his Bathwater Candles—inspired by one of the most shocking moments in the Emerald Fennell film—on the Jan. 18 episode of The Tonight Show.

In the spirit of the unsettling thriller, the 26-year-old even went so far as to slurp the candle—an homage to Barry Keoghan's Oliver, who sucks up bathwater after Felix (Jacob) has masturbated in one of the film's scenes. 

"It smells like a washing room—like detergent," he told host Jimmy Fallon. "His clothes are clean."

And it wasn't the first time Jacob was put on the spot about his bathwater-inspired candles. In fact, the actor added that his Priscilla costar, Cailee Spaeny, had also sent him videos of the merchandise. 

"I want to know who's making the money," the Euphoria star joked. "Like, ‘Great, where's my money?'"

As for the scene that inspired the candles? Jacob has spoken highly of that, too.

"I was like, ‘Thank God, it's mine,'" he told Variety at Saltburn's Los Angeles premiere. "I was very proud to have Barry Keoghan guzzling it like that."

 Meanwhile, costar Barry has played up the bromance between the actors offscreen, fostering the obsession his Oliver had for Jacob's character.

"I'm really flirtin'," the 31-year-old told GQ in an article published on Jan. 9. "I think when you're comfortable with someone, you can be as close as you want, you know what I mean? It's not like, ‘Oh, don't come near me'—it's like, I'm comfortable. When I'm comfortable around people, I'm comfy."
