Y’all aren’t seeing things. I legit feel like I’m cheating on Bath & Body Works right now! I went to Aldi and purchased candles!!! That’s right. My Bath & Body Works obsessed self purchased a different candle!!!! With Bath & Body Works stores being closed. Zero coupons in my inbox and shipping being ridiculously high on the website. I check daily hoping for either a flash free shipping sale or at least a shipping price drop! But no. $24 a candle and $10 shipping. $35 plus tax for a candle? No thank you. Just can’t bring myself to do that regardless of how big of a Bath & Body Works addict I am.
So I took the advice of all of you Aldi nerds that comment on my IG stories constantly and headed to Aldi to see if their candles really are the Bath & Body Works dupes y’all claim them to be!
This is the candle I was most excited to light! Rumor has it that it’s a dupe for the Lavender Bath & Body Works candle with all the macarons on the glass. I actually have the macaron candle. Empty! But I still had it in my possession since I’m a hoarder to sorta compare the scents! Safe to say they smelled pretty similar! I see why people are calling it a dupe! Wish I had enough of the Bath & Body Works Candle left to do a scent test with both lit since they smell so similar unlit!
Literally will make your home smell like mangos! I actually left to run to the liquor store the other day to stock the wine fridge. Don’t worry! Hubby and the kiddo were home to make sure the house didn’t burn down. Came home and my house smelled amazing!!! I was literally shocked a $3.99 candle had that much scent power! Out of all 4 candles purchased, this was the strongest scented candle. If you have a home full of stinky furbabies needing to get to the groomers when the apocalypse ends like myself. Get this candle lol....
Happy Mother’s Day
If floral scents are your thing, you will enjoy this candle! Florals are actually not a favorite of mine at all. I prefer fruity & musk scents, so I personally was not a fan of this candle. I do think it’s totally adorable looks-wise and I will probably be saving this baby to burn on Mother’s Day while I sip champagne all day.
I was the least excited to smell this candle since I assumed it would be floral galore. I couldn’t do a smell test in store since it’s a law to wear masks in store here in NY. Got home and was shocked it was very musky! Not floral at all! Aldi nerds on Facebook were comparing it to Chanel. While I wouldn’t go that far, it does smell like perfume. Only drawback was this was probably the least powerful scent wise. Such a shame since it did smell good! There is always one candle in every haul though regardless where I shop that isn’t very strong scent-wise and this was that candle.
Are Aldi candles actually Bath & Body Works dupes?! I would have to say they are pretty damn close! I was shocked that a $3.99 candle can make my house smell amazing. If I spot a candle with a catchy name or looks like it would smell delicious, I will definitely toss one in my cart! Definitely a great option for those not wanting to cough up those dollar bills for Bath & Body Work Candles or refuse to pay outrageous shipping like myself! So happy I decided to give them a try since they are definitely doing the trick and holding me over until my beloved Bath & Body Works stores reopen!
