Home scent & PartyLite Candles review.

Don’t you love candles? We all do! I don’t know how about you but every time I go homeware shopping, I end up with some candles! I love quiet weekend nights, when I burn them in my living room or taking a bath surrounded with light-up candles. There is something magical in it. Candles, will not only bring a nice ambience to your room, but also can help you relax and focus. Many candles contain special oils that work wonder.  There are also fragrance candles, if you purchase a good quality your room will be full of delicate scent. Avoid cheap candles, the smell can be very overpowering and genuine will make you fell unwell. If you burn food or have unpleasant smell at home, candles also can help to masked that.

I was gifted my candles from PartyLite Candles concept.  PartyLite Candles arrived fast and well packed. Despite delicate glass, nothing was broken. As soon as I have opened the box I could nicely smell the candles. Inside I have found a real rainbow of colours and scents. My favourite was little trinket box with elegant damask pattern and mirrored top from their Forbidden fruits series. Another box contained the multi-coloured tea candles. It’s a real bucket of smells. I burn few already and its really nice, fragranced smell, not to strong but delicate and it really made me feel relaxed in my own home. Another I loved was the Japanese Yuzu, and not because the wax is pink: ) very nice, oriental smell and I already burn the candles every night and it’s still full. I hate when candles burn to fast! I have packed few of my candles to take with my on my holiday! My hotel room is going to smell so amazingly as well! PartyLite also have amazing range of SmartScent and Flameless Fragnances.

There are so many types of candles but these below are the most popular.

1. Tealights & nightlights. Very cheap and mostly used when many of them as you can use them to create letters, shapes. They can also contain fragrance like the Forbidden Fruits by PartyLite.
2. Container candles.  These come mostly in jars or glass containers in various sizes. Often they have many wicks which allows more light like for example Essential Jar Candles. They don’t particularly burn faster than single wicks if good quality. You can place them anywhere.
3. Dinner candles. Mostly used with candlabras and candlestick.  Long & thin candles used for occasions.  If you use them during meals use natural beewax as this won’t  overpower the food and bring delicate honeyed scent.
4. Church/ Pillar candles.  These come in any sizes and shapes but mostly are big chunky round or square candles. These are very long-lasting and you can place them on the floor, use in lanterns or glass votive. Perfect for decorating  windows or floors.

Scents types;
Seductive & Uplifting- florals- rose, tuberose, hyacinth, jasmine etc.
Warming & Relaxing- vanilla, beewax, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg (Christmas)

Also, read below PartyLite Tips and  Tricks of using candles.
• Trim wicks to about ½ cm each time before lighting, to avoid them bending to the side (with the exception of tealights, votives and Nature’s Light jars – do not trim these).
• For all candles, please take care to position the wick so that it points towards the centre.
 • If the wick is too short and is in danger of ‘drowning’. Extinguish the candle and use a tissue to remove some of the wax surrounding the wick.
• Position candles at least 4cm apart, if burning more than one at the same time.
• If a ‘wick blossom’, develops on the wick, extinguish the candle, remove the impediment, and then relight the candle.
• Ensure that no foreign objects such as dead matches or remnants of trimmed wicks get into the liquefied wax. Foreign objects tend to become additional ‘wicks’ and this may result in uneven burning of the candle.
• Place candles on flat surfaces. Avoid placing in direct sunlight and on hot surfaces such as windowsills, terraces, tiled stoves, televisions and computers.
• With tealights and votives, depending on the fragrance/ colour and surrounding temperature, a wax residue may remain.
• For best results use a snuffer to extinguish the candle flame.
• Do not remove the sticker at the base of the candle, as this may result in pulling out the wick. • The warmer the surrounding temperature, the more easily candle wax liquefies. • When burning the candle in a wall sconce, discolouration on the wall may occur over time with extensive use due to the heat of the candle.
