Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer coating could be improved
first must say I love the luminara brand and the natural look of the light, but the first one of these I bought was returned because the metallic coating was bubbling and flaking off returned for replacement, only to receive another with the same problem...for the price, quality should be better!

I love Luminara candles and I give them as gifts every chance I get. I bought three of these to take to friends for Christmas. I am very partial to the remote ones and since I had ordered the set of 4- 7 inch candles with the remotes, I had plenty of remotes to go around so it didn't matter that these didn't come with remotes.I have never had a problem with any Luminara candles that I have ordered from QVC and I love the smell of the vanilla ones. Maybe it's just me but I think the vanilla scent is very pleasant. Luminaras are the only candles I have in my house and I have many.

This is by far my favorite candle! I have several from Luminara but this is the best. I bought a set of them last year and then they sold out. I see they are back. So I bought another set for my mother and sister in law. They are always saying how much they love mine. They aren't as "gold" as in the picture. The are more of an ivory satin with glitter on it. Stunning in person! I wish the picture was closer to what they really look like. They do have a rough texture but that is the glitter and I love it! You can't go wrong with these. Put them on a crystal candle holder and they look amazing!

Although the concept of the flickering flame is good, I think Luminara candles are extremely overpriced. This one was given to me as a gift and the glitter flaked off, so that there are spots on the candle that are bare. I also have the red one. With the size of the battery I thought with the timer would last longer.

I regularly search for "unscented" luminara candles as I and many of my friends and family are sensitive to fragrances, including the vanilla scent in most luminara candles. I am hopeful QVC and Luminara will partner to provide more unscented options in the ivory and white candles, and in sets of 4 or more as is offered in the ivory candles that have the scent. I waited for a bit to try this candle as it looked more gold/holiday in the photo on the website. When I opened the box I was pleased it was more ivory in color; however, when I immediately took the clear sleeve from the candle, the candle felt rough to the touch and had somewhat light green or another type color of glitter that was throughout the candle and got on your hands and anything around you when inserting the batteries. Regrettably, even by gently touching and lifting the candle to place in another location, the glitter was all on my hands. Sadly, I am returning the candle and am disappointed it did not work as I have waited for a long time for unscented options. Please accommodate the request of those who wish for unscented options (including ivory and white). I have searched and sent in requests for about a year, and hope we'll see more unscented soon. The vanilla scent may work for some but is still very noticeable to many.
