[ADVERT]Candles aren't that cheap in Sydney, although they're getting cheaper. That is the great news. Once upon a time a Charlie Brown candle at Myers would set you back $50, and now that price has gone down to $30. If you want luxe, that's where you would buy your candles in Sydney. They're quite cheap for the high level scent that you will be receiving. Think the likes of Glasshouse and Gascoigne and King.

However, you have stumbled across this question because you want a bargain. You want to gain further insights as to where Sydney's cheapest candles can be purchased. The champion in this area would be from a Swedish furniture retailer that many Sydneysiders would love to hate, yet we love this place despite the do it yourself, flat pack retailer mentality.

Writers choice: IKEA's candles in a glass tumbler cup. The Tindra scent.

On the contrary again, some of the homewares at IKEA rock. Why? A standard sized scented candle (in a tumbler glass size) will only set you back $2.50 as opposed to $30-50 plus. The only catch is you need to bring your own bag and some bubble wrap if you plan on buying multiple quantities. The latter is what you would do when shopping at IKEA at Rhodes. If you want to save a bit of time and check out via their self service facility. Be prepared to use a Visa or MasterCard credit card or a debit card to pay for your candles.

Their Tindra candles come with a subtle, beautiful vanilla trying to meet caramel kind of flavour. They promise up to 30 hours burning time and the integrity is their candles deliver. They will last you a while. The beauty of them is that simple cup. Once you're finished with this candle, you need to pop the remaining glass into the freezer for only one hour. Any longer than that, the glass will explode. The wax will easily come off after freezing for an hour.

After washing these glasses afterwards, you can use them as drinking glasses to add to your home wares. The glass cups on these IKEA candles are also great to use to put pens into on your work desk, and also serves as an equally great toothpaste and toothbrush holder for the bathroom. Neat.

Ikea candles do contain palm oil. And they will not be removing the palm oil until sometime in 2015. I do enjoy their candles (and the prices) but I no longer will be buying them until the it is removed.
