YOU'D be hard pushed to find someone who isn't a fan of Yankee Candles.

And while they smell amazing, they aren't cheap – with the large ones costing £27.99.

So Steph Houghton was thrilled when she found a dupe of her favourite Christmas Magic candle in Aldi for just £3.99.

"Aldi dupe- I absolutely love the Yankee Christmas Magic candle and haven’t seen it in any shops, I think it’s £27 online…" Steph wrote on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group on Facebook.
