THE £3.99 CANDLE YOU NEED

I’m sure you must have heard about the candles budget supermarket Aldi recently launched, that have been compared to the more expensive candles by Jo Malone.

Aldi caused somewhat of a ruckus with the launch of their luxury candle range, which saw the candles immediately sell out and end up on eBay up to ELEVEN times the RRP price of £3.99. When you consider that Jo Malone candles retail for £44, it’a a no-brainer why Aldi’s version have been so successful.

Anyway, I popped into Aldi yesterday, and there they were, positioned in the cleaning products aisle. There are three scents available, Pomegranate Noir, Freesia Pear and Lime, Basil and Mandarin. Presented in a stylish glass jar, with a silver lid and two wicks with a burn time of approximately 48 hours, they’re an absolute steal.

Of the three, No. 2 Freesia Pear is what I chose and I was pleasantly surprised. Within 15 mins of being lit, the room was engulfed in its soft, warm, subtle scent. I can’t smell it when I’m in the next room, but for the price I paid, it does the job! Aside, from looking far more expensive than it is, I was impressed to see it burned evenly without crackling or smoking too.

Pick one up if you get the chance. Aldi have been randomly adding more stock online, but I think your best bet is popping into your nearest store.

    SOLD! Just ordered all 3 online and it’s free delivery! My nearest Aldi is a pain to get to so this has saved me the trouble.
