If you love a bargain as much as I do, you’ll be interested in this highly affordable Aldi Candle, which bears a striking resemblance to a high end brand.
Aldi Candle: No. 1 – Lime, Basil and Mandarin
Is it just me or does this look a little like another Aldi Jo Malone dupe?
For the first time ever, I thought I’d pen a little post about a candle. Because I’m getting into candles at the moment, I’ve even started making my own. However, I am still really tight, so you won’t catch me parting with £40 or more for a candle because I don’t have money to burn. Literally.
This is where this little Aldi number comes in – actually, it’s quite big at 335g – because it smells lovely but it only costs a mere £3.49!
A proper bargain, right?
I’ve been meaning to get my hands on one of these for flaming ages (get it? I’m sorry…) but could never track one down when I ventured into Aldi.
When I finally got one the other week, there weren’t many left on the shelves, which made me think that a lot of people must be buying them as Christmas presents; because they would make a good gift, wouldn’t they? And in 2020, I think we could all do with choosing gifts that are a little less spendy without compromising on quality.
What does this Aldi candle smell like then?
Well, to me, it smells strongly of lime and it’s got a definite tanginess to it. The scent throw is good, it won’t fill the room, but it’s enough to pleasantly fill the immediate area around it with its lovely citrussy scent. I’ve been lighting it while I’ve been sat at my desk, and it’s nice to be typing away whilst occasionally getting a whiff of lime at the same time.
There are two wicks to this candle, with it being on the bigger side.
It seems to be lasting well. It isn’t sweating either, which is a definite bonus for a candle that’s on the cheaper side.
All in all, it’s a great candle for such a modest price.
