Designer perfumes have been so popular for many years that we now have designer-scented candles as an extension of our luxury scents. Many of us already reach for our favourite perfume scent every morning. It’s part of our wardrobe and routine around getting dressed.
Whether you work in an office, at a restaurant or in a beauty salon, there is always a place for wearing a scent. Some like their favourite fragrance so much that they extend it into their homes by buying a candle with the same notes.
With so many great candles on the market and online today, we have such a variety to choose from and they make great gifts too for any occasion.
Unscented Tea lights work well if you just want to make the home feel cosy during the winter months. There are also scented candles that smell of lemongrass, apples and vanilla for that touch of fruit and sweetness in the home.
We know that celebrities have branched out in many directions when it comes to the beauty world. Anything from skincare, makeup and perfumes and now we have designer scented candles.
Many shops are eager to sell top designer candles like Jo Malone at cheaper prices. Candles that smell identical to the designer perfumes.
Aldi has already seen shoppers hustling in on their range of Jo Malone for just £9.99. A 200g candle from their home collection, Oud & Bergamot.
This would set you back £62 if bought from the Jo Malone website. One may question why you would buy a £62 candle when you can purchase the same scent for £9.99.
With a burn time of 45 hours compared to 60 hours for the Aldi brand, another difference is the size of the candle. Compare Jo Malone’s 200g candle with Aldi’s 700g, 3-wick version so it’s not just the price that catches the eye.
We all know that if we purchase any product from a designer’s website, we will pay a higher price. This leaves us looking at more affordable options, so let’s see where we can shop for some of the best designer-scented candles.
FM world designer-inspired candles
FM World has a small selection of 150g candles, four scents for women and one for men.
From their website :
Our high-quality Home Ritual Fragrance Candles use hydro-refined paraffin and a wick that meet strict requirements of the German RAL standard in terms of:
• scent intensity, • optimal burn-up behaviour, • wick quality – a strong cotton wick of suitable thickness, resistant to breaking and drowning, • minimal smouldering, which does not pollute the airways, • reduced soot, which ensures the candle looks beautiful when used.

Flower Bomb is a hugely popular fragrance for the ladies and the candle is no exception. If you love this sweet, harmonious scent on your skin, it’s worth giving the candle a try. A collection of floral notes including patchouli, citrus, musk, rose and white floral give this scent its gorgeous ‘bouquet’ of freshness and sweetness when lit.
A pleasant surprise to see that the Burberry candle has an affordable price tag. This lovely set comes with three different scents.
The iconic Chanel is a delight to have as a candle around the home. Not the cheapest I may add but with its elegant box to accompany three glass candle jars, this would make a wonderful gift for any Chanel fan. The fragrance notes behind Chanel are very distinctive.
Top notes of Bulgarian Rose, peach, Jasmine and mandarin orange. Middle notes of Rose, orange blossom and clover. Base notes of amber, vanilla, tonka bean and sandalwood. It’s no surprise that the Chanel fragrance is so iconic.
