The best-selling Aldi candles, along with the new diffusers, are coming to store this weekend as gift sets – just in time for Christmas

The Jo Malone inspired Aldi candles and diffusers available as Aldi Specialbuys have been so hugely successful the discount supermarket is now offering a NEW limited edition range of Christmas gift sets. Hitting stores from this Sunday 3rd December, the limited edition gifts won’t hang around for long so be quick – once they’re gone, they’re gone!


The Luxury three wick candle would make the ideal centrepiece on the Christmas table, if you decide to treat yourself before Christmas that is! This 700g candle is benchmarked against Jo Malone’s Deluxe candles which sell for £120, this deliciously scented three-wick wonder is just £9.99!


The indulgent candle gift sets, at just £9.99 each, contain three single wick travel candles, ideal for any candle fan! Available in two scent combinations; the first of Lime, Basil & Mandarin;  Pomegranate Noir and Freesia & Pear. The second combination includes Orris & Sandalwood; Sage & Sea Salt and Red Roses.

The Luxury Candle Gift Sets will be available in store from 7th December.


Forget frankincense, this Christmas give the gift of Freesia & Pear; Lime, Basil & Mandarin; Pomegranate Noir or Red Roses! All of which are available as luxury room sprays, individually wrapped in the beautiful packaging – that is so smart already, all you need do is add a bow on top. The 100ml Premium Glass Room Sprays are just £3.49 each.

The famous Aldi candles

Aldi Candles

They’re back! Having sold out multiple times, Aldi has new stock of its luxury, Jo Malone-rivalling candle range. And the great news is that this time, the collection is here to stay!

When you think of scented candles, it’s fair to say that budget German supermarkets aren’t perhaps where you would expect to find them. However, back in early March, the Aldi versions of three of Jo Malone’s most popular fragrances were so highly in demand that they sold out. They were then launched again on 21 March, just in time for Mother’s Day, to an equally strong reception, and again in April.

At just £3.99 for 290g, it’s no wonder the Lime, Basil & Mandarin, Pomegranate Noir and Freesia Pear candles have been flying off the shelves. And after the unprecedented customer demand, Aldi has announced that the range will be available in store for good, so there’s no need to panic buy! For the moment, they won’t be available online, but we’ll update you if that changes.

With their glass jars and metal lids, not to mention the near-identical names, the candles don’t have much to distinguish them visually from the £44 Jo Malone candles. Not surprisingly then, during the sell out in March, people were found to be putting the Aldi candles on eBay at highly inflated prices.

With regards to the candle itself, John Davis at European Flavours & Fragrances (EFF), Aldi’s fragrance house, said: ‘Not only do Aldi’s premium candles equal the quality, strength and performance of high-end alternatives, but they are significantly larger than their premium counterparts meaning the fragrance is likely to be stronger, too.’

Aldi hopes to make luxury products more accessible to everyone. ‘Our customers loved the luxury candles when we first launched them in March,’ says Tony Baines, joint managing director of corporate buying at Aldi. ‘We’ve listened to customer feedback and are looking forward to seeing the candles back in store, permanently. This is a great example of our commitment to offer premium products at amazingly low prices, allowing customers to buy luxury products without over-spending or compromising.’
