I received this as a Christmas gift from my in-laws, and I just love it. It has a timer, which I haven't figured out how to work yet, and it's remote compatible, but the remote control has to be purchased separately. I don't need a remote control because where I have it sitting, it's no trouble to turn off manually.
This is a closeup of the candle when it's turned off. I wanted you to see how the wick looks. It's a thin piece of plastic that's attached to the candle with a small, thin wire. When you turn the candle on, the wick starts to move, making it look like a real candle burning. Isn't technology amazing? :)
I took some time to think about where I wanted to put my new candle. I've always wished I could have a lamp in our foyer, but they didn't install an electrical outlet in here when the house was built. We could have one put in, but it's not that urgent. This candle puts out a nice amount of light, so now I turn it on and it's just as cozy as a small lamp.
We had trouble getting a good picture in here last night because of our overhead lighting. I love our chandelier, but it does beam a bright light right onto the objects on the tabletop, making everything look kind of blasted out.
I added a softening effect to the above picture; I can't decide if that helps or not .
Isn't this a pretty French lady? She's called Manon Lescaut, and you can read about her Here. I especially like her because she reminds me of the statuary that my husband and I saw when we visited Brookgreen Gardens. I like to fill our house with reminders of the places we've traveled in our life and with sentimental family pieces. I bought two things with my Christmas money this year, and she was one of them. :)
Now our foyer is so cheerful at night with just the light from this candle flickering and dancing on the ceiling and reflecting off the mirror. Aren't you glad someone thought of fireless candles? We can enjoy the look, feel, and scent of real candles without worrying about drips or setting our house on fire. These candles are available in different sizes and colors on Amazon, if you're interested.
As always, thanks so much for your visit and for reading me. I hope you have a great day!
