Aldi shoppers go mad for £3.99 candle that smells just like £62 Jo Malone version

Aldi shoppers have been left delighted by the news that a popular SpecialBuy has returned to the middle aisle - and it’s a bargain dupe of a designer candle 16 times more expensive.

The re-released candle from Aldi’s Hotel Collection, No. 16 Oud and Bergamot, costs less than a fiver and has amassed more than 100 five star ratings online.

The sell-out candle comes in a matte grey container with a silver lid, described by the German retailer as ‘luxurious’ with a 50-hour burn time.

Manchester Evening News described the candle in a review as a 'candle-lovers dream' as the medium sized candle has not one, but two wicks, "which is much better for an even burn with no tunnelling" - meaning less waste and more fragrance.

Known for its low prices and dupe products, the candle shares the exact same name as a Jo Malone candle that carries a £62 price tag - meaning you could buy around 16 Aldi candles for the same price.

Other shoppers also complimented the candle, describing them as ‘classy’.

One said: “Like JM (Jo Malone). Love this candle. Always stock up every time they’re in. Wish they were out all the time.”

Another added: “Have bought these many times. Stocked up on x6 as they’re not always in stock. Lovely smell & look classy. Love ALDI candles.”

A third commented: “Best Aldi candle, please restock and have in store more often. Such a sexy sophisticated slightly masculine scent.”

You can shop the Aldi Oud and Bergamot candles on the Aldi website.
