They do body creams in each of the home fragrances. I got the lime, basil and Mandarin yesterday and it's beautiful....

BuzzLightyearsHoneyBun Sun 11-Mar-18 12:44:16

Do they do the No 2 fragrance? That is the only one I like but I can never find the candle any more and haven’t seen the body creams or frangrances in it.

Bluesheep8 Sun 11-Mar-18 12:52:46

Hi, yes they had all the fragrances in the body creams. I reckon there'll be perfume next.

MayMummy Sun 11-Mar-18 13:00:47

There already is?

usercantsleep Sun 11-Mar-18 13:08:43

Perfumes are in my local store....and hand wash

SandysMam Sun 11-Mar-18 13:20:49

Are they comparable at all?

MiniAlphaBravo Sun 11-Mar-18 13:35:11

Yes I’ve got the no 2 candle. I bought it a while ago though, probably January I think. I now have a massive no 1 as well.

Bluesheep8 Sun 11-Mar-18 13:40:48

I haven't seen the perfume in my local one, will have to keep an eye out then.

I got the no1 reed diffuser - had very low expectations, but I was really impressed. The scent is pretty much identical, certainly good enough for a room fragrance. And obviously so much cheaper!

obviouslymarvellous Sun 11-Mar-18 13:54:47

I've got the pomegranate perfume and I can't tell the difference between that and my Jo malone one. It lasts just as long and smells great have had really good comments when wearing it x

Bluesheep8 Sun 11-Mar-18 15:43:00

Oh I definitely need the perfume now! I want the number 1 and the pomegranate one. Will be watching and waiting! Have got both those candles and the reed diffusers and love them.

Is no 2 fragrance Blackberry Bay? If so, it's not available in the body products...

swimster01 Sun 11-Mar-18 16:20:31

I have the lime and basil room spray and found it quite aftershavey in smell. Might try the pomegranate one.

Butterfly1975 Sun 11-Mar-18 16:37:09

All the perfume sold out in my local stores sad but they had the candles and the body lotion - the lime and basil one is lovely!

SussexBonfireViking Sun 11-Mar-18 16:39:28

i went to the Aldi in Lewes and all the had candle wise was the 3 wick pom noir - which i dont like as its just so clove-y

BuzzLightyearsHoneyBun Sun 11-Mar-18 19:41:18

Yes, no 2 is Blackberry Bay. Gutted they aren’t doing it on the perfume or body products.
Our local Aldi has a sea of No 3, a couple of No 1 and never any No 2 #sadface

Try Perfume Parlour for No Malone dupes (as we call them on the perfumista threads) Cheap as chips and much longer lasting than No Malones. I have about 10 and they are brill.

Bluesheep8 Mon 12-Mar-18 07:45:52

Will check out the perfume parlour, thank you

These have started to get bad reviews- apparently fragrance and wax quality has deteriorated since they were launched

eloisesparkle Mon 12-Mar-18 14:29:46

All they have is Pomegranate Noir candles in my Aldi.
I hate that scent.
I'd love the Freesia and Pear candle.

LemonadeWithACherry Mon 12-Mar-18 15:21:14

The mother's day 'calm' room spray smells gorgeous, but doesn't last at all. I wish they would make it in a diffuser.

eloisesparkle Mon 12-Mar-18 19:40:09

I was in Aldi this evening and they had the Pear and Freesia body cream but not the candle sad

Partypopper123 Mon 12-Mar-18 19:46:10

I have 1,2 &3 candles. Seems hard to buy 2 blackberry bay. I got the Pom Noir perfume, it's very strong tbh.
I can only find freesia & pear (4) in room scent, has anyone ever had a number 4 candle?

lht22 Mon 12-Mar-18 19:50:36

I've just been looking at these online, they seemed to have most of them available but not very good descriptions of the scents.
I like fresh, fruity or citrus-y scents, are any of the Aldi ones like that?

Sorry, I meant the candles, not the creams!
