Rated 5 out of 5 by Anut LUMINARA STILL THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was reading the reviews and decided I needed to get a 5 star review in and I just had to write and say yes there are some changes to the candles....but I still love LUMINARA CANDLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Actually I hadn't even paid any attention to the yellow flame until I had read the reviews and then I went and looked at them closer. I had already given three away for gifts and the recipients loved them.
I do agree with the fact that QVC needs to be more cautious sending these candles out in the heat as the plastic wrap does stick to the candles....after all this is real wax folks....100 degrees and hotter weather and wax is going to melt! I live in the rural heartland and let me tell you when it's HOT here and those UPS trucks without air conditioning are carrying candles... it's a major miracle that you don't receive a box containing a blob of wax, at which time it really won't matter what color the flame is...just something for the executives to ponder.
I own a ton of Luminara's and even with the changes they have made I will still continue to purchase them and I am very pleased with these candles.
Rated 4 out of 5 by whitechristmasgirl Love the new more realistic flame
I don't know why so many are complaining about the new flame color. I purchased these BECAUSE of the new flame color. It's more realistic than the previous color...before they were too white to look like a real flame; now they can pass for a flame. If you light a real candle, the flame is not white...it has a lot of yellow in it. I applaud Luminara for making the flame color more realistic but I have to take off one star for the scent. It does not smell pleasing to me and I've let the candles air out for over a month and the smell is still there. I'm hoping it will eventually go away. Please make them unscented next time. Thanks Luminara!
Rated 1 out of 5 by RusD What happened?
What happened to the beautiful Luminara candles that I have ordered before and loved? These are a different diameter than my other Luminaras, and the plastic ruined the finish on the candles. What's even worse is the horrible scent and especially the yellow flame and yellow plastic rings around the flame. They look so cheap. I'd like to add to my collection of Luminaras, but will be cautious when buying more. I will call customer service and return them. Please bring the old Luminaras back soon and in time for the holidays.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Izas1227 Horrible smell and ugly yellow plastic flame
I love luminara but what happened here?!!! Yellow flames not ivory or white look horrible plus a horrible chemical scent that literally filled my whole house! I don't understand the point most people don't want toxic chemicals filling their homes these days so they do not need to scent these! Why would you make these scented!??? Especially so strong people have different scent preferences people have allergies it makes no sense! And again the flames are awful yellow and also we need WHITE candles! Please just make more white luminara and the flat top ones as well in white which are more modern looking. For some reason they are not available anywhere in flat top white other than maybe one retail store and they cost too much and QVC doesn't offer them. Even the classic white are impossible to find and only one set of two avail on QVC no other options. So please fix these make them in white make white with the flat top and change the flames to not be yellow plastic!
Rated 1 out of 5 by ANGELSMOMMIE Poor Quality
I have been buying Luminara candles for years and have always been very happy with them until now. The smell on these is very strong, the wick and around it is yellow looks very cheap. To top it all off on the back of one of the ivory colored ones was a dark pink color. I got these in July and didn't open them until now to use with my fall decorations but these are going back, sadly. I'm not paying for something that is such poor quality and defective. I hope Luminara looks at the reviews on these that aren't very good from what I read and get some quality control.
Rated 2 out of 5 by twinki buy with caution
UNSCENTED PRODUCT, PLEASE! Am returning this item purchased to use and to gift--after airing one for a week, developed an unpleasant headache from the scent. Wouldn't use this for self and gifting!!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lumberjack Disappointed with Plastic Wrapping
I love Luminara candles and have many throughout my home. I was so happy to see the Navy Blue and the 3 inch base. They will fit some special candle holder that I own. The 3 1/2 inch base doesn't work. I hope Luminara goes back to the old plastic around the candles. The 8" Navy Blue candles with the plastic wrap looks like it's sticking to the finish from the heat. I'm afraid to remove the plastic that it will take off some of the Navy Blue finish on the candles.
