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 definitely were 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…
Well hello, Walmart! Don’t these candles look SO similar to Bath & Body Works?
The 719 Walnut Avenue Scented 3-Wick 14oz Jar Candles are regularly priced at ONLY $4.93 at Walmart and have a similar look to Bath & Body Works candles. They have a cute label on the front of the jar and a pretty silver lid, so you could easily think they’re from Bath & Body Works! Plus, they smell amazing and are available in a variety of scents like Vanilla Bliss, Rustic Lakehouse, and more.
Unfortunately, there may not be as many scents to choose from as Bath & Body Works and they will change by season, but you really can’t beat paying UNDER $5 all year long for a cute 3-wick candle that smells almost as good! Also, note that these candles will be found by the cleaning supplies/Glade, etc.

5. Other Retailers: Candle-Lite Candles

HIP TIP: Rumor has it that these candles are possibly made in the same factory as Bath & Body Works! The Candle-Lite Company manufacturing facility is located in Leesburg, OH and Bath & Body Works also has a couple distribution centers located in New Albany and Reynoldsburg, OH. Could it be? 🤔
