GloLite candles are our patented forms that are guaranteed to be brighter than any other candle you can find. They’re so popular in fact, that they were gifted to the world’s brightest stars at the 2019 Golden Globes, so you’ll be in extremely good company if you’re an owner of one of these candles. Read our guide to find out more about them, from how they’re made to the best time and place to use them. 

What are GloLites?

Our GloLite collection is made up using an exclusive wax formula which makes them unique compared to regular wax candles. Generally most candles only have light surrounding their flame when lit, but the makeup of GloLites means there is glow throughout the candle from top to bottom when lit. We have tested the lumens - units that measure candlelight - of this wax technology against all of our competitors. The result was that GloLites produce more lumens than any other candle on the market, officially making them the World’s Brightest Candle™. 

What forms are GloLites available in?

GloLites come in three different forms, Pillar Candles, Large Tealights and Jar Candles. Each form has a unique appeal:

Pillar Candles
Our classic-looking candle form is specially created with fragranced wax on the outside only, allowing the middle to give out the all-over glow with a less intense aroma. The pillar candles offer a burn time of 80-100 hours.

Large Tealights
These on-trend large tealights give you an instantly brighter glow from a single flame. With a burn time of 8-11 hours, they burn for much longer than smaller tealight candles. Light them individually to create ambience or the whole pack to surround yourself with bright light and fragrance.

Jar Candles
The wax in our jar candles is fragranced throughout for a higher intensity scent than the pillar candle. They have a burn time of 50-60 hours and the clear glass and two-wick design have been carefully chosen to maximise the glow.

GloLites are ideal for…

Dinner Parties
Your party guests will fall in love with your pillar candles when they’re matched with our Color Stop Bases. When pillars are placed on them, our bases emphasize the all-over glow of GloLites as you can change the colour to suit your mood. Plus, you can choose our unscented forms so that the fragrance doesn’t get in the way of you enjoying your food. 

Bath Time
Swap the bathroom light for GloLite wax for the ultimate relaxing atmosphere. Surround yourself with the light of our large tealights if you want to bring a book into the water with you, or pair the higher fragrance intensity and all-over glow of our jar candles with some soothing and relaxing music to help you unwind.

Save on buying fairy lights and enjoy the instant glow from our citronella infused candle forms when you’re outdoors, whether you’re wiling away balmy summer nights or wrapped up under a blanket with a loved one. The all-over shimmer of our pillar candles also make them perfect for creating instant ambience with soft accompanying fragrance.
