These Bath & Body Works Candle Knockoffs Start at $5 Each!
Updated, July 25, 2019
The world’s best candle guaranteed?
Have you noticed that the regular price of Bath & Body Works 3-Wick Candles is now up to $24.50 each?! 😳 Although there are often sales and coupons to lower these prices significantly, you usually won’t find them for under $11 each unless you head in-store during a sale and with coupons in tow (or wait for the once a year candle sale).
Don’t get me wrong. We LOVE Bath & Body Works candles, and we fully stock up every December during their Annual $8.95 Candle Sale. BUT have you wondered if there are any other candles on the market that smell just as amazing, look just as pretty, and regularly sell for a fraction of the cost at other stores?
We were definitely curious, especially since Bath & Body Works claims to have The World’s Best Candles Guaranteed. SO, we headed to a few stores and bought 3-wick candles to see how they measured up.
Here’s what we found…
1. Kohl’s: SONOMA Goods for Life Candles – from $7.99
These SONOMA Goods for Life 3-Wick 14oz Jar Candles often go on sale for $7.99 – $9.99 (regularly $19.99) at Kohl’s and have fantastic reviews! Choose from scents like Tropical Shores, Blue Hawaiian, Watermelon Sangria, and more!
2. Hobby Lobby: Chesapeake Bay Candles – from $10.19
These larger Chesapeake Bay Candle 3-Wick 17oz Jar Candles are regularly priced at $16.99 at Hobby Lobby, but when you use a 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby, you’ll pay just $10.19. Plus, there are a variety of yummy scents to choose from like Spice Rack, Gardenia Bouquet, Pineapple Verbena, and more!
3. Walgreens: Market Square Candles – from $5
Candle knockoffs at Walgreens? Yep, Walgreens sells Market Square 14oz Jar Candles (in-store only) for just $9.99 each (regular price). Be sure to keep your eyes peeled as they often go on sale BOGO (buy one, get one free), which makes them just $5 each! If you spot them during a BOGO sale, stock up!
Watch for scents like Mandarin Berry, Eucalyptus Mint, Cherry Blossom, Ocean Mist, and more!
4. Other Retailers: Candle-Lite Candles – from $7.99
If you live by a Kroger, H-E-B, Walmart, Blain’s Farm & Fleet or other retailers found here, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for Candle-Lite Essential Elements 3-Wick 14.75oz Jar Candles! They’re regularly priced at around $9.99–$11.99, but they do go on sale for around $7.99 at select stores. You can also find them on Amazon, but please note that the prices can be quite a bit higher.
You’ll find scents like Vanilla & Sandalwood, Oakmoss & Bergamot, Lemongrass & Coriander, Eucalyptus & Cucumber, Juniper & Rosewood, and more! You may also find Candle-Lite Royal Classics 3-Wick 11.5oz Candles in different scents like Exotic Vanilla, Golden Woods, and Love Paris, among others.
HIP TIP: Rumor has it that these candles may possibly be made in the same factory as Bath & Body Works! The Candle-Lite Company manufacturing facility is located in Leesburg, OH. Bath & Body Works also has a couple of distribution centers located in New Albany and Reynoldsburg, OH. Could it be?! 🤔
Have you tried any of these candles? What do YOU think?
