The original Aldi candles

Aldi Candles

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 March 2017, the Aldi versions of three of Jo Malone’s most popular fragrances were so highly in demand, they sold out.

At just £3.99 for 290g, a price that has not risen in the years since launch btw, it’s no wonder the Aldi candles fly off the shelves. When you compare the Lime, Basil & Mandarin, Pomegranate Noir and Freesia Pear candles to high-end brands the savings are huge.


Lime Candle Centrepiece, £9.99, Aldi

The Luxury three wick candle is the ideal centrepiece for the dining table. This 700g candle is bench-marked against Jo Malone’s Deluxe candles which sell for £120, this deliciously scented three-wick wonder is just £9.99!

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, during the sell out in March, people were putting the Aldi candles on eBay at highly inflated prices!

Aldi Candles

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


Room sprays don’t get much better than Freesia & Pear; Lime, Basil & Mandarin; Pomegranate Noir or Red Roses! All of which are available as Aldi luxury room sprays, individually wrapped in the beautiful packaging – that is so smart already, all you need do is add a bow on top.




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