I’ve been a fan of Partylite products since attending my first party in 1990. I was absolutely smitten with their products, candles and scents, and I still own 2 of the 3 candle holders that I bought at that first show. As someone who has been buying their products for over 22 years, I can’t tell you how thrilled I was to receive an 18-pack of Black Raspberry tealights, a dozen Lemongrass votives, and a pair of Mulberry mini barrel jars, valued at $55, from Partylite Consultant Megan Real, in order to review them for this blog. To me, candles are much more than a product to buy–they are an experience, decor and enhance any room and all moods. I can’t tell you the number of times someone has walked into my home and commented on how nice it is to come over and see, smell or experience all of the candles that I burn. Back in the old days, when I was young and much more fun, I’d throw really fun Halloween parties, and would burn well over a hundred candles at a time.
As someone who already owns that many 100 candle holders, I wanted to review Partylite candles, because I believe with all of my heart that Partylite candles are the best made, the best smelling, and the easiest to clean up after. Their wax burns cleanly and evenly, never leaves a black mark on the ceiling, and can even be removed from carpet if you use a cool iron and cover the wax spill with a piece of paper. I love burning my Partylite candles, as they don’t leave wax behind if you burn them in a Partylite candle holder. I’ve always been a fan of the Lemongrass and Mulberry scents, so it was great smelling it once again in my home. This was the first time I had burned Raspberry tealights, and their fresh, fruity scent filled my entire first floor. All three scents are wonderful, and if you like fruity, clean scents like I do, you are going to be thrilled that Megan has agreed to let me also host a giveaway for the same candles!
Partylite candles come in all sorts of scents and shapes, which you can check out here. I’m a fan of their large 3-wick candles, their jar candles (Especially the mini jar candles, which make excellent gifts anytime of the year.), their voties, tealights, melts, and their mottled pillars, as shown above. Aren’t they gorgeous? Honeydew has always been my favorite scent, but I’m pretty much a fan of almost every scent they sell, especially their fall scents. You can check out more of the Partylite votive scents here.
I had a blast looking over their Summer 2011 catalog, their Winter/Spring 2011 catalog, their Weddings and Special Occasions catalog, and their Look Book. I pretty much wanted everything I saw, as it has been 3 years since I’ve been to a Partylite show, but of course, I don’t have the room, or the money to buy it all–otherwise I would, especially since Megan has agreed to offer all of you some fantastic offers if you are interested in purchasing some Partylite products for yourself.
