WITH autumn upon us, candle season is officially here.
But channelling those cosy vibes at home doesn’t come cheap . . .
We buy six candles a year at an average cost of £7.40 each, according to research by The British Independent Retail Association.
That means we’re spending nearly £50 per year — and if you have a Yankee Candle obsession, you’ll be forking out a lot more.
Here, I can help you save as I shine a light on luxury candles for less . . .
STATURE OF LIBERTY
I love the gingerbread-scented 18oz glass jar Liberty candle from studio.co.uk as it’s a great dupe of the Yankee Candle one and it’s only £10.99.
But I was even more pleased to see Home Bargains has a Wickford & Co large gingerbread candle for just £2.99, which smells exactly the same.
Did you see my recent Shopalong video at Wilko? Check it out at facebook.com/thesunsavers and you may spy some of the store’s gorgeous luxury candles.
Its scented pillar candles are £4 each, but currently you can get two for £6. If you like a sweet scent, the vanilla one is my favourite.
Asda also has some delicious spiced-berry-scented candles for just £2 each.
SAVE: £2 if you buy two candles at Wilko
If you really can’t kick your Yankee habit, I have some ways to score a discount. Right now you can save ten per cent on selected Christmas Yankee Candle gift sets and candles online at temptationgifts.com.
I like the Magical Christmas Morning Advent Calendar wreath, now £19.99 down from £24.99. You can also save 25 per cent on the Magical Christmas Morning gift set, £37.49 reduced from £49.99.
And don’t forget to check out Boots. Some Yankee Candles are part of its festive 3-for-2 deal which has already started!
SAVE: £12.50 on the gift set
Enjoy cashback by shopping directly with online retailers.
Candlesdirect.co.uk stocks leading brands for a little less and if you purchase via Quidco.com you will currently receive 13.2 per cent cashback. I like the Woodwick caramel toasted sesame jar candle for £9.49, which has a £9.99 RRP.
SAVE: up to 13.2 per cent and around 50p per candle
Deal of day
TREAT yourself to a new fragrance with the help of the October sale at The Perfume Shop. Get Roberto Cavalli for £29.99, down from £67.
FAGE Total 0%, natural fat-free Greek yoghurt (500g) is reduced to £2 from £2.75 at Sainsbury’s. I love mixing it with grapes or strawberries.
