The Yankee Candle advent calendar might already be top of our Christmas list, but Lidl have just brought out their own version which would serve as a brilliant alternative.

It's no secret budget supermarkets are great at duping our favourite products. Just look at Aldi's Jo Malone candle dupes, or the Yankee Candle inspired jar candles. It also comes as no surprise that we're kind of obsessed with advent calendars, and are already hoping to head into December 2019 with an alcohol one, a chocolate one and a luxury beauty one.

One more wouldn't hurt, would it? For the first time in 2019, Lidl is bringing out their own candle advent calendar, aptly named the Luxury Candle Collection Advent Calendar. For £19.99, shoppers will receive 24 votive candles hidden behind festive doors.

The scented candles come in fragrances like lavender, citrus and herb, pomegranate, frosted pine, frankincense, and apple and cinnamon, and yeah, we want one.

Lidl's £19.99 offering could rival the likes of Yankee Candle, who have released three different types of advent calendar this year. 'The Yankee Candle Advent Wreath', 'The Yankee Candle Advent Book' and 'The Yankee Candle Advent Tower' feature a mixture of both old and new fragrances, including 'Warm Cashmere' and 'Cinnamon Stick'.

And that's not forgetting Jo Malone's iconic advent calendar, which comes in at an eye-watering £320. But it does include Pine & Eucalyptus Mini Candle, Incense & Embers Mini Candle and Sweet Almond & Macaroon Mini Candle, which sound divine.
