As I’m sure you all know I’m a huge fan of candles and I use them pretty regularly, although since I have a toddler and a puppy, I’ve had to really limit the burning time of my candles due to being extremely cautious of my son and the dog, cause the last thing we need is for them to turn one over and get burnt or burn the house down, so I have started looking at alterative ways to enjoy candles with out all the danger of a traditional candle and I was recently introduced to Enjoy Lighting and their line of wax flameless candles! So needless to say when I was offered the opportunity to review a couple, I was very excited to do so!!
About Enjoy Lighting (taken from website):
With Enjoy Lighting candles, you can enjoy the warm atmosphere of candlelight without the unwanted fire risks or replacement costs.
Why Flameless Candles?

Décor – Use flameless candles in areas where wicked candles can’t go – in a floral arrangement or centerpiece, near curtains or drapes, on shelving or book shelves, in children’s bedrooms, and more.
Enjoy Lighting flameless candles provide the look of traditional candles with real wax, realistic flickering effect, and light fragrances.
Convenience – Candles won’t blow out when used outdoors. Some models include a built-in timer allowing the candle to turn on and off when you want it to, every day, at the same time. Set it once and your candle will automatically turn on and provide ambiance every day – without any effort on your part. Set it and forget it!
Cleanliness – no soot build up on your walls or ceilings. No melting wax on your furniture or carpet.

I was sent a 3x4” and a 3x8” candle in maroon in the scent Bayberry to review and I was quite happy when they arrived because they arrived just in time for me to make them the centerpiece of our Christmas dinner and with all the family member coming that have children I knew there would have been no way to use real candles in my piece! I have to admit that even thought I had read that they look and smell like real candles I still had my doubts, but once I took them out of the package to examine them all those doubts went right out the window!!
These candles smell so wonderful and I’ve noticed that once I’ve had them turned on for a while the scent actually gets stronger as it would from a real fire burning candle. I have to say that I love the elegant look of these candles when I have them turned on and they flicker just as a real candle would but with out the ever so dangerous fire flame! Another thing I absolutely love about these particular flameless candles is that I can set their timer to have come on each day and then turn off after they have been on for the set amount of time.
I love how veritable these candles are as well I am able to mix and match them as well and arrange them in different centerpieces for different occasions and now that I know how well these candles from Enjoy Lighting work and how safe they actually are I am planning on getting more to mix and match for different centerpieces for each time of the year!! Thank you Enjoy Lighting for giving me back the ability to enjoy the flickering of candles which I love without the danger of my son, dog or home getting burnt!
I’m totally in love with my candles from Enjoy Lighting and I highly recommend others who love candles but don’t love the fire danger associated with them to try the flameless candles from Enjoy Lighting!
