Flaws in candlesI ordered these as a gift in ivory. I was very disappointed with them. After removing the plastic wrappers I loaded them with batteries and turned them on. It was evident that there were a number of dark flaws on each of the candles, looks like fine black wire running through certain areas, that was not as evident when not lit. Unable to return them at that point due to removing plastic wrappers. Tried to remove the dark spots with an Exacto knife and that seemed to do the job but for the price of these I should not had to have done this. I will now have to keep them for myself since there are pits in the wax where I removed the flaws.
On a positive note they do glow and twinkle much like a real candle. Darker colored candles may not have this flaw, and if they do it may not be as noticeable.

Had high hopesI love Candle Impressions and have collected quite a few of the flameless candles it created and love each and every one I already own.
I love seeing just the wick (can't stand those fakey wicks in either CI or the other brands that have them), so I was thrilled when CI offered these with a cane design and just the bare wick. I have a lot of cane around my home and expected that these candles would complement the other cane very nicely.
Sadly, the cane on these candles was just plastic embedded into the wax from some sort of plastic sheet, and the sheet sometimes did not even fit cleanly all around the candle. In addition, mine had those odd black marks as others have described. What would those even be for?
I am keeping the two sets I bought, but if this had been my first CI purchase, I would think twice or three times before purchasing again. Luckily, I have had great experiences with all other CI flameless candles so I'm hoping the normal high standards will come into effect for future offerings.
Where was quality control for these, however, both of CI and of QVC?

Not the bestI bought a set in gray and a set in cream. They both had black marks on each candle. I kept the gray set but returned the cream. The cream also was missing part of the basket weave on both candles. When it was turned on it looked awful. They were very pretty but with all the black marks and gouges and missing basket weave I had to return the cream ones. I would not recommend these for those reasons. It is a shame as they could have been very nice candles. They were just very cheaply made. The gray ones also had black marks on them but I just turned the candles so you could not see the marks on those. There was too much wrong with the cream ones to keep. Have a great day!

Cheaply MadeReceived the Candle Impressions S/2 Basket Weave Flameless Pillars today and since both work will keep but they are very cheaply made. The 4" pillar had a black streak on one of the basket threads that resemble a mark from a black marker. Will just position candle so the mark will be in the back. Will not purchase anymore of these.
