Luminara 5" Flameless Glitter Candle with Timer
Bought this in a chocolate/coppery color last year. Love it inside a hurricane on my coffee table. Creates much more light and much more realistic than other battery operated candles. I have at least 4 versions of these luminara candles and very pleased with them.
Weren't my style!
First of all, I have candles for a candle holder that are supposedly the listed diameter that these are listed as, and they don't fit the candle holder that I have. Secondly, battery life is not that long. Thirdly, I don't like the white ring around the hole that you can see straight on when you look at the candle. I ordered 8 and 5/8 flickered. If you are lucky to get one that actually works for a while, then good luck for you. I returned all eight because I didn't want to take a chance on the others. I like the candle stick ones and have had good luck with those, but with a colored base, not white, you can really see the white ring the "flame" comes out of and it's pretty obvious it is not real looking. These most likely will not fit your average candle holders as the base is huge. I wasn't too keen about 2 D batteries getting eaten up so fast either. Overall, this is a very expensive item to own/operate and I decided it against it on all accounts. One thing, they are pretty!
LOVE this candle!
I bought this candle in green last year during Christmas in July and absolutely love it! I bought the green to go in my bedroom as my decor is green and black, and it matches perfectly. The sparkle is beautiful...I'm a total sparkle girl so it definitely catches my eye when I look at it. Other reviewers have complained about glitter falling off; I would say that each time I pick up my candle there is a little glitter left on my fingers, but it is minimal and the candle is still covered in plenty of glitter so it's not an issue for me. I love the timer option, especially because I can fall asleep with it on and not worry about the batteries dying because it's been on all night long. I'm definitely consider buying more in different colors for holidays and other accents!
They just keep coming!
I am obsessed with Luminara candles. Family and guests are blown away by the realism of these candles. The inventor is brilliant, just got 2 more red ones that I will put aside til time for decorating for the holidays. I have little doubt that I will be back for more. I do want to say one thing. I have had remarkable battery life in all of my pieces. The timers work perfectly every day; they are perfect!!
Love, Love, Love
I purchased one each of the blue, green & brown & grouped them together in my bathroom and when they come on in late afternoon, it makes my bathroom feel like a spa. They are so beautiful and give off a sense of peace and relaxation just by looking at them.
The only thing is that I would love to purchase another brown one and every time I check, it is not available for purchase. Will QVC be getting more of the brown color in?
I bought the blue last year and am so happy with it that I use it all year long! I came back to buy the remaining 3 colors...LOVE Luminara!!!!!!!!!!!!
Flame looks so real. Comes on every night.
I bought the brown. I have been using it year round since July 2013. Looks like chocolate, dark brown sugar or cognac. Great for various holidays as well. If they bring back the brown, don't hesitate. Better jump on it.
Best Purchase Ever
Luminara candles have been on my wish list for a long time and I finally ordered 2 in ivory for my daughters wedding shower. They are magnificent and many guests at the shower thought they were real candles and tried to blow them out at the end of the night. We will definitely be using them at the wedding and I can't wait to order more in other colors. Love the glitter, especially for wedding related events.
Very fragile and the glitter in the PINK color is not well glued reason for why it is glittering all over the place where I put it.Also when it is on,you can see the candle as if it were transparent: not a good look.The mechanism is not working properly all the time(timer) but I will keep it using the on/off only. Too many issues to return.I also bought the brown & RED color(this last is the prettiest) when they first came in and to this date I have not had any issues with these. The red one looks like the red slippers of the Wizard of Oz picture.The RED & brown ( BROWN no longer in stock) I recommend. I also agree with a reviewer that states that the buyers of this product should do a better job regarding the colors offered.
Ordered 2 of these just before Christmas, I was very pleased with them. After 3 months one quit working and now second one has died too, tried changing the batteries but still did not work. A lot of money for something that did not last very long
Sad! One drop on soft carpet and it broke in pieces!!! Had the purple one!! Of course they don't have anymore!! Why do they always keep colors that no one wants, and the great colors ya see once then their gone?!?!?!?! Would return it, but of course it past the 30 days! Won't be buying anymore lumineras!!!
These candles are wonderful. I bought a pair of the blue ones for myself. I set them in glass vases, and they are gorgeous. I just love the fact that I can set the timer once, and then they turn on and off automatically. And they are so realistic. Anyone who has seen mine thinks the flame is real until I explain and they look very closely. In fact, I had one one a shelf in a bookcase, and my neighbor thought it was going to start a fire.
I like them so much that I bought a pair for a friend's birthday and another pair as a housewarming gift. They are perfect!
