A collection of Aldi Mother’s Day candles are being flogged for up to 11 times the retail price on eBay, after being compared to luxury bath and body brand Jo Malone, and selling out in just minutes.

The ‘specialbuy’ candles, which come it at just £3.99, include three rich scents: Pomegranate Noir, Freesia and Pear or Lime Basil and Mandarin. Each arrives encased in a contemporary glass jar design - complete with a silver finish, replicating the £44 premium versions available to buy at John Lewis and House of Fraser.
