I haven’t met many people that don’t enjoy a good candle. I personally love candles, especially the ones that make your home smell like freshly cut roses or a home baked apple pie just being taken out of the oven. Candles bring a sense of warmth and a homey feeling to your home, or at least I think they do. Especially in the evening when the glow of the candles is the only thing to light your way. Or a relaxing bubble bath with the flicker of the candle dancing on the walls.
However with my busy schedule I often don’t even think to light my candles nor do I sometimes want to deal with the mess as they begin to melt, worrying about if my children are going to knock them over. With my absent mind I will often forget I even lit a candle and head off to bed, thankfully my husband is the exact opposite. I know it frustrates him sometimes how I can forget things I just said i was going to do 10 minutes ago.
I’ve seen flameless candles before, mainly the small tea candles and always thought they were kind of neat, how they can so mimic the glow of a real candle. I was excited when Enjoy Lighting allowed me to review a couple sets of their candles. I received the Holiday Set in both red and green for a total of 6 candles.
I’ll me honest with you I seriously could not find a flaw with my flameless candles from Enjoy Lighting. I would say for me there are two very important features that make me really love these candles. One is they won’t ever melt, which means my candles will always look as beautiful as you see them in this photo. I don’t have to worry about a half melted candle decorating my living room. The second is the timer. Yes not only does these candles not melt, and look just like real candles you can actually set a timer so they will turn off on their own. Four, Six, or Eight hours and your candles will turn off automatically. So if I come home and turn my candles on around seven for dinner I can be sure that at 11 o’clock when I’m in bed my candles will not be “burning” (no pun intended) through their batteries.
The candles look beautiful when turned on, definitely like real candles. Because you can’t take a photo of candles burning I took a quick video so you could see how authentic they look.
My mother is not such much a flameless kind of gal. She prefers the scent of candles as they burn. Me personally I’ve yet to find a candle that burns strong enough for me to really smell a difference. I tend to use scented warmers and plugins. Not to mention I was actually quite surprised oh how pleasant the flameless candles smell. I could smell them the minute I stepped into my bedroom.
So why you might ask should I go flameless?
