Complaint / review text:
I ordered three snow tree PartyLite candles at a party held by a friend/co-worker. This was my first experience with PartyLite candles, and it will also be my last. First, the price of the candles took my breath away — and I generally buy good quality candles, not the cheapest kind. I was also taken aback by the shipping and handling charge, which I've never paid before at a hostess party. I also didn't like the pyramid scheme feeling of the party, with constant reminders of how I could make lots of money and receive free gifts if I held a party, too. The last straw, however, was when I actually used the candles over the holidays — they were awful!
These candles had no discernible fragrance (although they were supposed to) and burned horribly — wax dripping everywhere, like I'd gotten them at the dollar store on sale. Ironically, a (more attractive looking) tree-shaped candle I purchased at K-Mart performed MUCH better than the PartyLite tree candles — and the price tag on the K-Mart candle was significantly less. Buyer Beware of PartyLite!
Fairly minor — but my wallet is lighter because of this experience.
