RICHMOND HILL, ON--(Marketwired - February 06, 2014) -
Imagine this: You light a beautiful, natural soy blend candle, and your room fills with the exotic fragrance of magnificent botanicals from halfway around the world.
As you enjoy its warm glow, the candle warms your heart as well. Because you know that burning this particular candle is doing a world of good -- saving rare plants from extinction and helping the people who farm them have a better life and a brighter future.
PartyLite®, the world's #1 party plan candle company, is proud to introduce Brighter World™ Candles, a unique collection of candles in three extraordinary new fragrances:
*Red Ginger Teakwood, from the villages of Laos in Southeast Asia, brings a lively spirit to a woodsy bouquet.
*Ylang Ylang Black Currant, from the exotic Comores Islands off the southeastern coast of Africa, features vibrant flower notes of sweet Ylang Ylang.
*Vanilla Tonka Bean, also from the Comores Islands, brings a touch of sweet vanilla nurtured in the African sun.
By working with the world-renowned fragrance house Givaudan, headquartered in Switzerland, PartyLite is bringing the fragrance of exceptional natural ingredients into your home -- magnificent botanicals that yield rare essential fragrance oils. Those oils are the key fragrance ingredient for these natural, soy blend Brighter World candles from PartyLite.
"We are working with one of the oldest and largest fragrance houses in the world," said Rob Goergen, President of PartyLite Worldwide, "and our commitment supports a wonderful sustainability program in the communities where these plants grow."
"Our involvement helps to fund educational programs, sustainable agricultural practices and conservation techniques for the people who farm and harvest these exotic plants. These programs provide much-needed help to the local people whose livelihood depends on that sustainability."
PartyLite Brighter World Candles are available in each fragrance as an individual jar candle or as a gift set of three, including one of each candle fragrance. They are made of 96% soy blend wax, are beautifully packaged and make great gifts.
"When you give a PartyLite Brighter World candle as a gift, it sends a really a special message," said Goergen. "It's a beautiful candle with a truly rare and wonderful scent. And it also says that you care about the world, and you know the person you're giving it to does, too."

For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes. In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Demmer, VP of Engineering at Jut, will discuss how this can...

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...
