Rated 2 out of 5 by witfld Sickening Smell
Why, why, why must they scent these candles? Nobody likes scent around food and this scent is not vanilla. As stated by other reviewers they never mentioned it in presentation.I ordered two sets - some have that ugly yellow wick- yuk. I just unpacked these in chocolate to go with my lovely harvest items from Valerie and am so upset about the stink. My experience is that the smell takes months to dissipate. Am going to experiment with a way to get rid of smell -since I am an expert about skunk stink removal, maybe I will be successful.

Bought for Christmas in July TSV Couldn't be more pleased. Got the Brown and Garnet Red. WOW! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these candles. Don't be afraid to buy, you will not be disappointed. P.S. You need to add ANYONE to your recommendation category!
Rated 1 out of 5 by cobalt7 DEFECTIVE
For the second time in a year I've had a problem with the finish of the wax for the colors garnet, brown, and orange (brown & orange were from last year's order in a slightly different size). I don't know if it's due to being shipped in the summer or a storage issue. The finish looks greasy and smeared. I have loads of Luminara candles in ivory and other colors and never had a problem until this past year. By the way, the ivory candles in the same shipment were fine. I LOVE the size of these, the odor was fine, but the yellow wick is a disappontment.
Rated 3 out of 5 by mae9 Too narrow - want texture
Love Luminara and have at least a dozen in my home and give as gifts often...but don't like the new narrow ones, don't like the unscented ones and am frustrated that they refuse to bring us texture (country texture one is ugly). I have some old ones from them that are similar to the metallic ones in texture, but not metallic. Love them. Don't understand why they would discontinue them. Also have some slight textured ones that are multicolored. Dark on bottom half and lighter shade variation of the color on top. Love, love, love them! So what happened to those? Glad other companies are now bringing the same technology as I have found what I wanted elsewhere this year. These are nice, but feels like Luminara stopped trying. They figure they're the best, but have found some just as good elsewhere this summer that I like better.
Rated 2 out of 5 by bluehydrangea Great buy but not a winner
I became obsessed with these candles. I didn't think I needed the full set so I didn't order them at first and then was disappointed that many sold out. So, when navy blue became available again, I jumped on them. I loved the color, I loved the size, I love Luminara when lit (not a huge fan when unlit but it is ok). However, like many reviews stated, the scent was an issue. Mine were a mild scent. I only took one candle out of the box and aired it for a number of days. Still, when you were up close to it, you could still pick up the scent. Sooo, back to the set ... if I put out a group of these, I feel the scent would have indeed been overwhelming and the cost was too high to leave candles sitting in a box unused. Because the color was so nice and unusual and went perfectly with my coastal decor, if this had been a single candle purchase at a lower price point, I would have kept it. But, of course, this was a set, so, in the end, I chose to return them. Missing my navy candle though.

I get so many compliments on these. I originally purchased and thought about giving one or two as gifts....nope. Kept all for myself they look so good :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by Redhead88 SIMPLY GORGEOUS!
Bought 2 sets of these in the ivory (one tall set, one short). LOVE THEM! The scent was very light and dissipated quickly. I can see that the flame is a different color but it looks great against the ivory. Since reading the other reviews, I realize that I definitely ordered the correct color! All working perfectly.
Rated 1 out of 5 by spikeman Love luminara BUT hate this smell!! NOT VANILLA
I have NUMEROUS Luminara candles
Indoor and outdoor 5.5x4 and 7x4 inch wax and plastic(outdoor)
votive candles 3x1.5 inch
votive rechargeable 1.5x1.5 in bronze charging base.
These are all wonderful candles.
I ordered the 8x3 inch chocolate color vanilla scented.
The smell is so putrid I cant use them nor can I give them to people as gifts for Christmas as intended.
These are a disaster as far as I'm concerned for QVC and because the smell so bad they want to still charge me for shipping them back.
This is a DEFECT and something needs to be done with contacting the manufacturer AND customer service for paying for the shipping back.
