I bought 5 of these in the yellow birch last fall (2015)-- first got two for me, then got three more for gifts. They are one of the best things I've ever bought at QVC. In the yellow birch they have such a warm glow, and the birch-bark is so wonderfully rustic. I have two on bookshelves/ledges in the main family room. With the timer function, they just come on automatically every day, and for five hours every evening throughout the winter that room is always suffused with a low, flickering, ambient light. So peaceful and calming.
The three people I've given them to have thanked me multiple times-- not just when I first gave them, but months afterwards they have brought it up on their own, with enthusiasm and delight in their voice.
A tip for long usage: Some years ago I had the Candle Impressions 4 inch high, 1 inch diameter candles, in wall sconces, and enjoyed them tremendously as well. After several years, though, I forgot to take the batteries out when spring/summer came. (It stays light so late that time of year that candles in the evening don't show up.) Because I left the batteries in, they leaked/corroded and ruined a few of the candles. So with these birch bark candles, I made sure to remove the batteries in April, and now, as October arrives, I will be putting them back in to enjoy the candles again this winter. Also note that if the candle starts to get dim--after 4-5 months of continuous use, fresh batteries will perk them right up.
I also plan to buy one this year for my 85 year-old-mother, who recently might forget to blow out real candles. Walking into a room with this flickering, warm light just says "home". May get some for other friends too. It really is a perfect gift, even for people that are hard to buy for.
The price is not cheap, especially adding in the shipping on each one, but I do feel it was well worth it.
Hint, hint-- these would make a great Today's Special Value!
Thanks, QVC and Candle Impressions!

I love these candles! I ordered two a few months ago and I just came back for two more. Very realistic and great for our rustic decor.
Rated 4 out of 5 by LOVES QUALITY Pretty REALISTIC!
I ordered two in each color. Someone mentioned that they wished the candle glow went down to the base. At least in the tan ones, it does. I don't know about the white ones yet as I am still trying to decide to keep or not as there are sparkly dust-like particles resembling frost all over them, taking away the realistic look. The tans have that too, but the sparkly material doesn't show up as much.
Now, if you want the white for a WINTER scene, you have it made. But I would say they look MUCH more unrealistic during the day when not lit than the tan ones. The tan ones pass on that account. The white ones probably wouldn't look very good for all year use. These four are big and came in one VERY tremendous box which, had I known, I would have made TWO separate orders for sending back the white is a problem now. The shipping mounted up on four candles and ordering the candles separately would have done much better by me!
Bottom line: if you want a natural look, get the tan. If you want a Christmas or winter scene, go for the white.

I purchased this last winter and bought it with our cabin in mind. In the meantime, I popped in some batteries and enjoyed it in my living room. I appreciate the timer function and I think the timer somehow makes batteries last longer. The candle has now been moved to the cabin and has the right rustic quality for out there - although on a mirror, it looked good in the living room too!

The yellow birch is a beautiful candle and it fits right in with my rustic decor. I have several Candle Impression candles and I love them all. They.re long lasting and excellent quality for the price. Always a great value.
