Luminara Battery Op. 5" Scroll Embossed Flameless Candle w/ Timer
What a Disappointment
I just received these candles - they look great. However, when I put batteries in them, they glowed just fine until I turned them right side up! Both immediately stopped glowing and they would not activate again - the light stayed on for literally seconds before going out. They're going back tomorrow.
The only reason I didn't give this product 5 stars is that it is advertised as having a "scent" when, in fact, there never was a scent - good, bad or otherwise. Aside from that, this candle is so realistic in appearance that guests often don't believe it's flameless until they approach it themselves. It's simply beautiful. I love that I can set the timer and walk into my, otherwise dark home, and find such a lovely glow. Very warm and inviting feeling.
I ordered this candle twice and had to return twice for the same reason - candle would go off after a few minutes. Love the technology but very frustrated that two differenct candles had the same problem. Will never order luminara again.
I purchased 2 - 7" scroll embossed flameless candles w/timer about 5 months ago. First one would turn off at either setting after a short time. Then the same started happening with the second candle. I of course went through changing the batteries even a second time. These have been lovely candles but I expected them to last longer then 5 months. They are more expensive then Candle Impressions which I have all over the house & have had for years. For this reason I would not again purchase this brand of flameless candles.
Love these candles -- so, so realistic
I purchased 2 of these candles for wall sconces I previously purchased from QVC.
The sconces came with battery operated candles, but nothing to compare to the Luminara candles. These are absolutely life like; everyone who sees them asks
if they are "real" candles. They look beautiful when "lit" giving a soft flickering glow.
If you haven't tried luminara candles, you don't know what you are missing. Definitely worth the price.
LOVED IT BUT......
I PURCHASED THIS CANDLE. WHEN I RECEIVED IT I WAS HEART BROKEN. THE CANDLE INSIDE THE BOX WAS HORRIBLE. I HAD TO RETURN IT. I LOVE THESE CANDLES BUT I AM SO AFRAID IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN. I HAVE BATTERY OPERATED CANDLES ALL OVER MY HOME. THEY ARE SAFER BEING I HAVE CATS THAT LIKE TO JUMP AND BE VERY NOSEY. MAYBE I WILL TRY 1 MORE TIME TO ORDER.
The perfect candle
These are the perfect candles. They look and feel extremely real, even close up. They give off the right amount of light. Other manufactures' products are way too dim. They are pretty much "set n forget." Switch them on, to the timer setting, 5 hours later they turn off. Next day they turn on at the same time, no thinking or action required. We purchased the first set in mid Feb. Theys are still going strong on the same set of batteries, now nearly two months later.
Luminara 5" Scroll FlamelessCandle
I love love love this flameless candle.I had bought a 7" candle a few days earlier and was so pleased with it that I had to buy the scroll candle too!! My plan is to buy these for Christmas gifts this year.It's kinda funny,but my sister had bou
ght Luminara Candles the same day.This is my first time for buying these candles and I don't think I could buy any other.When it's turned on the flame looks real.Thanks Luminara and QVC!!!
Love the look of these candles. Ambiance without the worry of an open flame. The timer is a great feature, only wish the remote I bought for them would have worked.
Does not work properly. Very frustrating
I have purchased a number of flameless candles. This time I purchased three flamless luminara 5" (one sage, one red and one peach) candles and one of them (sage) is very defective the "make believe" wick does not move at all. Doesn't look well at all. It did not light at first with new batteries and I had to use more new batteries respeatedly until it finally lit but the flame does not wabble or move and instead stays stationary. It is going back along with the remote control which also does not work. I will keep the other two candles which seem to be working better and used them with the timer.
Finally a solution
For years we've wanted candles to enhance our mantle, but we didn't like having to continually trim, light and extinguish, and replace real candles.
We saw a Luminara candle at our friends' home, and immediately knew we had found the end of our quest for the perfect candle. I could not believe, from about 10 feet away, that the candle in their home was not real until Alice put her hand right over the flame and held it there.
After trying butane candles, electric candles and glass oil candles, there was the ultimate candle.
We are finally, permanently pleased with our mantle, and the fact that these candles turn themselves on and off at the same time every day is "icing on the cake."
We would, without resrvation, recommend these candles to anyone who wants the look of real flame candles, but not the work.
We would also like to add that QVC delivered these to us promptly and in perfect condition.
Congratulations on a fine product and commendable service.
I love love these candles. I could watch them for hours. At first I watched the preview and didn't pay attention until the host put her finger into the flame. I had thought they where REAL!! I then started to watch closer. Just couldn't believe it. I bought one of each size in the cream color. Got them and wasn't disappointed . My husband ask way I bought real candles with having cats in the house. I told him to stick his finger in the flame, he did and just loved them. I ordered 3 more. Set them to come on after the first ones go off.
Now for the down side, the price is high and paying shipping on each one is is little pricey. But still worth it. Only wish is they ran longer then the 5 hours on 19 off.
