Aldi is bringing back their luxury candles for Christmas.

The budget supermarket is known for its range of deluxe candles, all of which give customers a whiff of luxury scents modelled on the likes of Yankee Candle, Jo Malone, Byredo and The White Company.

And now the high-street retailer is bringing back its popular Hotel Collection candles and diffusers – this time with even more gorgeous scents.

For some citrusy Christmas goodness, the standout scent of the returning collection will be the new Bitter Orange, which gives us thoughts of one of our favourite Molton Brown candles - the Orange and Bergamot.

The festive-inspired scent will be making its appearance alongside a floral Rose Noir and a decadent Sweet Almond & Macaroon scent.

The luxury scents will be joining the classic line-up, which includes zingy Lime, Basil & Mandarin, fruity Pomegranate and floral Peony.

And the beautiful jar candles come in different sizes to choose from.

For those who want a small scent hit you can get a box of three full-sized 250g candles, each with a 58-hour burn time, for £8.99 per pack.

The box includes the iconic Lime, Basil & Mandarin and Pomegranate scents, alongside the new Bitter Orange.

Or if you want to treat yourself to a larger centrepiece version, the three-wick 700g jar, which burns for 70 hours, comes in Rose Noir and Pomegranate for £9.99 each.

And the gorgeous iridescent jar comes with a beautiful gold lid that will brighten up any Christmas centrepiece.

But if you want to make a purchase that will keep burning all the way through until next Christmas (depending on how often you use it of course), the Hurricane Gift Candle burns for a staggering 270 hours.

The 2.5kg wax showstopper, which will set you back £19.99, comes in the same design as the 700g version, with an option for a pretty silver lid as well.

There is also a Votive Candle set for £7.99 per pack that comes with mini versions of each scent, or if you’re more of a reed diffuser fan you can get a box for £9.99 containing the Lime, Basil & Mandarin, Pomegranate and Bitter Orange scents.

All of the products will be available in the store’s Specialbuy aisle from next Thursday 12th December, or you can pre-order on the retailer’s website from Sunday 8th.

But like with any Specialbuy you’ll have to be quick because once they’re gone they’re gone!

Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
