I am currently running a free giveaway through Instagram for one of these Aldi scented candles which are a dupe of the Jo Malone scented candle range. You can find the details of this give away here if you would like to join in. These have currently sold out online and aren’t readily available in all of the Aldi stores so I thought I would buy some and do a giveaway for the people who arent able to get hold of one.
I was made aware of these candles through the Instagram craze myself and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. They come in three scents Lime, Basil and Mandarin, Freesia Pear and Pomegranate Noir which also happen to be scents that Jo Malone produce. The Aldi candle has 2 wicks, it is advertised as having 48 hours burn time and comes in a glass jar with a plastic silver lid. They are currently retailing at £3.99 but I believe that this is just an introductory price for the range. I have seen these selling on ebay for up to £30 which seems really bizare!!
I am a firm believer that you usually get what you pay for with candles. The cheaper ones never burn down properly, they dont fill the room with scent and they usually dont come in a nice jar or tin. The Aldi candles look great, I am very surprised with the quality of the packaging given the price, all 3 scents are amazing they are all relatively savoury with a really sweet undertone which I personally love. I have not had mine long so it hasnt been burnt down much yet, but it appears to burn well. From many other reviews I have seen, the main difference between this and the Jo Malone candle is that the scent isnt quite as strong when it is burning, but for the price you can’t really complain at that!
If you would like your name to be entered in the give away please see my Instagram for how to enter. I will be drawing a name at random on Wednesday 5th April at 8pm so make sure you enter before then! The winner will get to choose their preffered scent out of the 3 I have.
