Brilliant Budget Burning | Aldi Luxury Candles

I absolutely love Jo Malone Candles, but I unfortunately can’t justify spending £44 on one. That’s why when I had heard that Aldi had released a range of luxury Jo Malone inspired Candles, I of course had to pop down to my local Aldi store, and pick them all up. Well i’ve been burning them for a little while now, and I thought that I would tell you what I thought of them.

Here’s what Aldi say about all three amazing scents.

The Aldi Luxury Candles No.1 Lime, Basil, Mandarin.

Encased in a luxurious glass jar, this fragranced candle adds a premium touch to any Coffee Table, shelf, or bedside cabinet. The iconic scent of Lime, Basil and Mandarin fills your home with harmony and beauty. . A twist of juicy Lime overlays a heart of Mandarin. Base notes of Vetiver, Patchouli and Amber gives a sense of warmth and security.

The Aldi Luxury Candles No.2 Blackberry Bay.

Incased in a luxurious glass jar, this fragranced Candle adds a premium touch to any Coffee Table, shelf, or bedside cabinet. Blackberry Bay is the fragrant burst of an English hedgerow in Summer. Dark fruity notes of Blackberries and lush Green notes of Bay Leaves drift through your home, bringing outdoor freshness and style into your house.

The Aldi Luxury Candles No.3 Pomegranate Noir.

Incased in a luxurious glass jar, this fragranced Candle adds a premium touch to any Coffee Table, shelf, or bedside cabinet. The first impression of Pomegranate Noir is of warm Pink and Black Pepper top notes. An Amber Accord with rich Red Pomegranate and Berries line the heart reinforced with notes of exotic Woods, Sandalwood and Patchouli. Pomegranate Noir is the image of sensuous fine fragrance filling your home.

It’s scent.

I absolutely loved this, as Lime, Basil and Mandarin happens to be one of my favourite scents of all time. I could definitely smell the Lime, Mandarin, Vetiver, and Patchouli, as I thought that they were all incredibly strong. But I unfortunately couldn’t really smell the Amber, as I thought that all of the other scents kind of overpowered it a little.

It’s scent throw.

I was a little disappointed with it’s scent throw, as this was one of those scents that I only noticed once I had gone out of and had come back into the room again.

It’s burn time.

It said that you were supposed to get up to 48 hours of burn time out of this, but as I always kept my wicks trimmed, I easily got at least 60 hours of delicious zesty fruity scent out of this.

It’s scent.

I really liked it’s scent, as I thought that it kind of reminded me of going Blackberry picking at the beginning of Autumn. I could definitely smell both the Blackberry and Bay Leaves, as I thought that the Blackberry gave it it’s delicious fruity scent, and that the Bay Leaves gave it a gorgeous grassy undertone.

It’s scent throw.

I really liked it’s scent throw, as even though it was one of those scents that I only noticed once I had gone out of and had come back into the room again, it did eventually fill my room with a delicate earthy yet fruity scent that lasted for ages even after I had blown it out.

It’s burn time.

It said that you were supposed to get up to 48 hours of burn time out of this, but as I always kept my wicks trimmed, I easily got at least 55 hours of delicate earthy yet fruity Blackberry scent out of it.

It’s scent.

I absolutely loved this, as I thought that it reminded me of a massive glass of warm Pomegranate punch. I could definitely smell the warm Pink and Black Pepper, Red Pomegranate, and Berries, as they were all incredibly strong. But I unfortunately couldn’t really smell the Amber, Sandalwood, or Patchouli, as I thought that the incredibly strong Pomegranate kind of overpowered everything.

It’s scent throw.

I absolutely loved it’s scent throw, as this managed to fill my entire room with it’s rich and fruity Pomegranate scent within about ten minutes of me lighting it.

It’s burn time.

It said that you were supposed to get up to 48 hours of burn time out of this, but as I always kept my wicks trimmed, I easily got at least 65 hours of delicious deep and fruity Pomegranate scent out of it.

My overall thoughts.

Overall I would have to rate the Aldi Luxury Candles No.1 Lime, Basil, Mandarin a seven point five out of ten, the Aldi Luxury Candles No.2 Blackberry Bay an eight out of ten, and the Aldi Luxury Candles No.3 Pomegranate Noir an eight point five out of ten. I really liked the Aldi Luxury Candles Lime, Basil, Mandarin, as I absolutely loved it’s fresh and zingy scent, but I was rather disappointed with it’s scent throw. I also really liked the Aldi Luxury Candles No.2 Blackberry and Bay, as I loved it’s delicate earthy yet fruity scent, and thought that it would be the perfect scent to burn as Summer turns into Autumn, but I was again a little disappointed with it’s scent throw. I definitely thought that the Aldi Luxury Candles No.3 Pomegranate Noir had to be the best one of the range, as I thought that it had both the strongest scent and scent throw of the entire collection.

If you would like to check out any of the Aldi Luxury Candles for yourselves, then you can find them in the Laundry and Household aisle of your local Aldi store.

  1. I’ve not seen these before. I think I’ll have to try the Blackberry Bay one, that’s if my local Aldi has any left. How much are they?

      Hi they’re now part of Aldi’s permanent collection so they should have some left and they’re £3.99.
