The signs of summer are all here. The sun is shining past 7 p.m., artists are dropping competing summer anthems, and flowers are beginning to bloom. And, if you’re strolling the aisles of Aldi, you can soon shop a new summer-scented set of candles. 

Aldi’s upcoming finds flyer provides a sneak peek at the Huntington Home Ribbed Party Glass Candle, set to hit shelves on April 24 and basically guaranteed to sell out. The colorful glass candle will be available in four fresh scents — Eucalyptus Mist, Peach Blossoms, Watermelon and Mint, and Island Oasis. Even though summer hasn’t arrived quite yet, light one of these, close your eyes, and wait for a summertime aroma to fill the space. 

While it’s a steal at only $4.99, the candle looks much more expensive. It comes in four colors, from emerald green, to dark purple, to cherry red, and the glass has a ribbed texture that gives it a cute retro look.

And at 8.8 ounces, the candle’s convenient size makes it easy to display around your home, even if you spring for all four scents and colors. Its small size means it can fit on a desk, mantel, or bedside table without taking up too much space. If you want to scoop these up, act fast and head to Aldi this week.

But if an Aldi trip isn’t feasible for you in the near future, don’t sweat it. Target has you covered with a variety of similar summer candles, like this lavender lemonade-scented soy candle from Opalhouse. Available in three sizes and ranging from $5 to $15, you can pick the best one for your space and budget.

The citrusy candle has a 4.5-star rating with more than 600 reviews. “Love it – truly a pleasant smell and it lasts,” says one commenter.

While you may not be able to make the weather warm up faster, you can grab one of these summer-inspired candles and manifest sunny days ahead.
