Rare Scents from Faraway Places Brighten Your Life and Help Others, Too
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."

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
