Aldi Candles vs. Bath and Body Works Candles – Review

If you shop at Aldi frequently, you may notice that they have Huntington Home candles in their Aldi Find aisle every so often. They are a 3-wick candle in a jar similar to Bath and Body Works.

So what’s the deal with them? Are they just as good? Or is the $3.99 candle a dud?

Aldi’s Huntington Home 3-wick Soy Blend Candle $3.99

I’m happy to say that these candles from Aldi are SO GOOD and for a fraction of the price of most candles (lookin at you, Bath and Body Works).

When the Huntington Home 3-wick candles are in the Aldi finds aisle, you will only find 4 different scents at a time. Each time they come back, they typically have 4 more different scents to choose from.

Each candle is a soy blend, 3-wick, 14 oz jar.

Now, I can’t say this for every single scent they have put out in the past or will in the future but I have used 6 different scents and they were all very fragrant.

Our store typically only gets a few flats of these candles when they come in, so they sell out QUICK! When I see them in the sneak peek Aldi ad, I am sure to get in and grab the ones I want.

Note: Aldi does also put out other candles but I can not say they are as fragrant as the 3-wick candles I am talking about here. We have in the past purchased the Essential Oils candle – a Lavender and Eucalyptus scent.

To our disappointment, the Lavender was not very fragrant when lit however the Eucalyptus was. However, with the 3-wick candles talked about in this post, every single one we used so far was very fragrant.

Bath and Body Works 3-wick Candle $24.50

Advertised as the “World’s best 3-wick candle”, Bath and Body Works has a large line of yummy scented candles.

Each candle is a 3-wick, 14.5 oz jar. Most (if not all) of the new Bath and Body Works candles are also made with essential oils.

While the candles are very fragrant and they have a lot of wonderful scents, the price is pretty steep for one candle. However, they do have sales for these candles a few times a year. With coupons and sales, you can get them for as low as around $10 a candle.

Aldi Candle & Bath and Body Works Candle Comparison Summary

Both candles produce a very fragrant scent that fills up the room quickly.

Both candles are about the same size, Aldi’s candle being .5oz less. (14oz vs 14.5oz)

Bath and Body Works has a much larger variety of scents to choose from. Aldi only has 4 different scents at a time and it is not available every single week.

Bath and Body Works candles are made with essential oils while Aldi’s candles are not at this time.

Aldi’s candles retail for $3.99 per candle, while Bath and Body Works candles retail from $24.50-26.50 per candle. With sales and coupons, you are able to get a Bath and Body Works candle for around $10.

We personally would rather get the Aldi candles because of the price and I think they are just as good as the Bath and Body Works candles. Even though they don’t have a huge variety of scents each time, we are always happy with the scents that the (Huntington Home) line has to offer.
