Rated 2 out of 5 by LoveOnlineShopping Love Luminaras BUT....
I love all my Luminara candles; the way they 'dance' and flicker and give off that "real flame" look. I was expecting to be just as impressed with these taper candles and am anything but. Don't get me wrong they are still a beautiful candle, but the 'wick' part just glows. There is no 'dancing' or flickering or any movement to speak of really. Just a candle with a light on top; not impressed for the money I paid.
Rated 2 out of 5 by booklady2 Disappointing
First let me say that I own many Luminara candles and have had no problems with them whatsoever. These tapers are the exception. I gave them as a gift at Christmas and the recipient told me that only one of the "flames" flickered all the time. The other was intermittent and she said she could live with that. Being that they were a gift I had another set sent to her to see if they worked any better. I also ordered a set for myself in the hopes that I would get a set that worked properly in the hopes that we could get at least two candles that worked and send the others back. Well, lo and behold I received my set and sure enough they BOTH stop flickering after about 30 minutes. The whole idea behind this technology is the flicker and so far 3 out of 4 of our candles do not function properly. I am waiting to hear how the other set works. My advice to others would be to wait a while to purchase these as there appears to be a design flaw somewhere as others have reported the same experience. I will have to return my set as there is no point to them unless they flicker like they are supposed to.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TNT4 Beautiful and so realistic
These candles are beautiful and look so real. Love this brand. They are pricey but definitely worth it. I have purchased less expensive ones only to return them.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Precious1 Defective
Ordered and received a set of tapered candles only to find out the flickering mechanism didn't work. I have two sets of the pillar candles and all eight of them worked on delivery. I was very disappointed and am shipping them back for a refund. The tapers are not as good as the pillar candles and will not order any again,
Rated 2 out of 5 by BigDanCD High Price... NO Flicker!
These candles are way overpriced for what you actually get. I ordered a set of the Ivory and they look like a dirty, muddy white. Not at all appealing. I put brand new batteries in them and got them to light, but with NO flicker. One of the reasons I bought them versus the plain lighted was for the flicker effect. Forget that idea. I bought them to put in my Waterford Crystal candle sticks without the so called dripless candles. No such thing as a real dripless candle. I will keep them, but I am not at all happy for the price I paid for this inferior product.
Rated 3 out of 5 by reena Beautiful, but stopped "flickering."
Bought 2 sets (red & green) and they are beautiful. Unfortunately 2 of them stopped "flickering." I have not had this problem with any of the Luminara pillar candles. Very disappointed considering the price.

These are PERFECT!! They look so real and fit perfectly in my holders. I bought the 8" in red which is kind of a burgundy red, very pretty and looks fine for Christmas. I am going to buy more in the other colors. Its a great gift for yourself or anyone. AMAZING!
Rated 5 out of 5 by meezer lover Awesome..... but...
I ordered them in both 10 inch and 8 inch for kitchen and dining room table. The are stunning. I would love for QVC to carry the these candles on the Bethlehem/Luminara clip on Christmas tree candles that I see online. I can't find them in any stores in Indiana. These would be so awesome shorter, and then be able to clip on your tree to supplement the lighting. The attached picture is an idea of what I think would sell great... Hope the Q can consider this. I think they would be a BIG hit.... The candle pictured is from a tree at a major department store. Sadly, they don't have them for sale; but, just are using them to decorate their own trees.
