PartyLite has been a staple in my home for several years now. When I discovered the quality of the candles themselves and the accompanying accessories, I quickly became hooked. Every season there are new products being introduced and their newest line are the GloLite Pillars.
Candles in general are pretty standard with the exception of the ingredient/item quality. GloLite Pillars are different though. Instead of light only being emitted from the flame itself, the entire candle illuminates. I mean the ENTIRE thing! From top to bottom the candle glows, creating a unique and beautiful ambiance. Still not sure what the hullabaloo is about?
Notice how the candles look in normal light:
This is what it looked like after I lit them:
These are so gorgeous! The soft glow reflected on everything and somehow changed the whole mood in the room. When not lit, the translucent crackled pillars look great on their own. I am extremely pleased with this new addition to the already fantastic Partylite line.
The last thing I wanted to touch on is the fragrance. I am pretty picky about the type of candles scents I like (light, fruity, not too sweet) so I was a bit apprehensive in ordering the Calm Waters scent without first trying it. I love it! In fact, so does my husband and daughter. And they are even more sensitive to smells than I am! Calm Waters is just a fantastic smell that will put you right at ease.
Now I have not yet had a chance to burn these pillars for the recommended 3 or more hours yet. I did notice in the instructions, though, that special care needs to be given to maintaining the shape of the pillars and preventing a ‘balloon’ effect. So save these babies for a quiet evening with your loved one or when you are in need of ‘me’ time.
The world’s most romantic candles, GloLite from PartyLite, come in three sizes:

The white candles feature Sea Salt & Driftwood.™ The scent of salty air blends with watery notes and warm driftwood for a clean, calming fragrance, like a shower of sea spray, gently misting the coastal air.
The blue candles feature Calm Waters.™ This clean, cool citrus scent tempered by soft, floral nuances washes over you like a serene ocean breeze.
