Default Really...Partylite?

Really? What? You weren't doing well enough being one of the most successful DS CANDLE companies that you had to rip off Scentsy with our warmer idea??? REALLY? What a BLATANT rip off of our company.

Are they doing warmers now too? I was in PL several years ago and there were so many products then that it was hard to keep up! Don't get me wrong, I love their stuff, but I would buy something to keep in my kit and then they would DC it not too long after!

I think almost every candle company has a warmer of sorts.....

I haven't seen PartyLite's though - will have to take a look!

There are enough customers for all of us, no matter what any company offers!

We need to focus on the positive benefits of the companies we each choose to represent, and not worry about our competition.

In all reality, Partylite had melts way before Scentsy was ever born ~ so it only makes 'scents' that they'd hop on board the electric wax warmer wagon!

Electric wax warmers were popular before Scentsy, you could find them at all kinds of stores even Walmart! Yankee trademarked the term 'Wax Tarts' and they pretty much started the trend, and they have electric warmers too!

Back in the day I used to make wax melts in 6 packs before Scentsy was even a company when I owned my bath and body business. I bought electric warmers online before Scentsy was around as well...

Scentsy creators saw the 'light' and took a great idea based on the growing trend of melts/warmers and combined melts AND warmers into a party plan company platform, genius, they've been successful!

BUT they are not the inventors of the 6 pack melt or wax warmers, so no one stole Scentsy's idea

Remember, as business professionals, we each need to stand tall and shine brightly in order to be the lighthouse, the beacon, in which to attract our customers. If we cower, we are in the shadows, and this is not attractive to our prospects!

We ALL have amazing products, let's get out there and show the world!!!

Great post Alethea.....i just dont get some post but you put it all in perspective.
Personally, I love being able to offer both types of home frangrance options to my customers.
Sometime you feel like a wick, sometimes you dont.

I just wish I could find the source for these. I know where one DS company gets their warmers and they are almost 1/2 of what they are charging their reps as a "Discount".

No offense, but obviously some people don't know what they are talking about before posting!!!
We need to be a little more professional and have a positive attitude! I am with Scentsy and I love my company; but I also know that there are a lot of other great companies that sell products similar to the ones we sell...its all good!!! Heck, the first melts I bought I got them for Mia Bella...lol!!! I have even tried "Scent-Chips"...
