A collection of candles are the latest 'it' product to fly off the shelves at Aldi. They were released this weekend, just in time for Mother's day.
With a stylish glass vessel and sophisticated scents, Pomegranate Noir, Freesia and Pear and Lime, Basil and Mandarin - they have been likened to luxury brand, Jo Malone. But, at £3.99 are considerably cheaper, causing a frenzy in the supermarket isles over the weekend. Reportedly the whole collection sold out across the country within hours.
In a statement the budget supermarket said: 'Comparable to Jo Malone, Aldi's candles offer mums a truly luxury treat for a fraction of the price.'
Adding that high-end scents 'recreate perfume classics representing quality, sophistication and style, allowing customers to lavish their loved "mums" with high quality products without breaking the bank.'
On Saturday many took to social media to show their off bounty, while others used the platform to vent their frustration at how quickly the candles sold out. Some lucky shoppers have already parted with theirs, listing them on buying and selling site, eBay for as much as £29.99.
Mission accomplished ðü‘ŹðüŹ¼ Was just about to go to the checkout when I saw a shop assistant wheel out a big stack full ðüėÉcouldn't believe my luck. Having smelt them both, I personally think there's quite a big difference between the @aldiuk ones and the @jomalonelondon ones but as I like burning mine all the time, the Aldi ones are a great substitute considering the price of them âėº#jomalone #jomalonelondon #aldi #aldicandle #no3 #candles #craze #compassion #pomegranatenoir #smells #dupes #candledupe #love #limitededition #interior4all #interiordesign #homeinspo #homeideas #homegoals
And why are we telling you all this? Well, because there is still time to bag one! A new batch was released yesterday morning which promptly sold out and again today. Keep your eyes peeled, trolleys at the ready!
