Good news bargain hunters! Aldi have announced they will be re-releasing their Jo Malone copycat candles. The budget version only sets buyers back £3.99 - 90 per cent cheaper than the luxury brand's £44 versions. Aldi's premium collection is made up of three beautiful fragrances: Lime, Basil & Mandarin, Blackberry Bay and Pomegranate Noir. Encased in glass jars, the candles add a lovely touch to any coffee table, shelf or bedside cabinet.
Aldi's luxe candles are worth £3.99
The popular household items were quickly likened to Jo Malone's famous home fragrance candles. After the candles were released in March, they sold out fast, and many of them were listed on eBay for 11 times the purchase price. The Aldi candles have now been brought back permanently, but are only available to buy in stores.
Shoppers were quick to share their joy over the restocking, with one Twitter follower writing: "VERY excited to see the Jo Malone candle dupes back in stock! #aldishopper #aldicandles #jomanlonedupe." Another said: "Finally managed to get my hands on one of the Aldi jo malone candles." A third post read: "Been stockpiling them incase they disappear! The lime, mandarin etc one is fabulous!! Good job Aldi!" Another tweeted: "Bought the @Aldi_Ireland candles everyone's on about which are supposedly ringers for a well-known designer brand. They are AMAZING!"
Speaking about the popular demand, Corporate Buying Joint Director Tony Baines said: "Our customers loved the luxury candles when we first launched them in March. We’ve listened to customer feedback and are looking forward to seeing the candles back in store, permanently. This is a great example of our commitment to offer premium products at amazingly low prices, allowing customers to buy luxury products without over-spending or compromising."
