Comments about WINE CORK CANDLES - SET OF 12:

Cool concept, bought some for myself and some as stocking stuffers for Christmas. They didn't work out as well as I hoped though. They don't last the advertised 2 hours, they burned out in about an hour for me. Also about 8 of the 12 didn't fit well into the wine bottle. When I tried to push or twist it down (force it) the bottom broke off and got stuck in the bottle. They barely give off any light, we had 4 of them lit at a time and could barely see our dinner plates so they are better just as decoration or background ambiance.

      Great gift, it's kind of the thinking out of the box gift, and it's great surprise for the recipient.

      Nice add to a dinner table but keep a close eye on the candle. It will go from a nice burn with what appears is awhile left to a sudden end very quickly.

        Comments about WINE CORK CANDLES - SET OF 12:

        People always comment favorably on my fancy bottle display with these cork candles. I order them regularly for myself. A suggestion: You might want to consider a "bulk" order discount--I'd appreciate it, and so would the woman I just gave them to as a gift because she shared some with her son who owns a restaurant and would like to use them nightly. I only use them at my parties, but would love to stock up on them at a discounted price!

          Comments about WINE CORK CANDLES - SET OF 12:

          I've been looking for affordable, cork shaped candles to put in some of the more important bottles of wine I've elected to keep after enjoying. Some are from trips I've taken and others from visits to wineries. I wanted to display them, but without looking like just a bunch of empty bottles. They now look complete as a centerpiece and add ambiance when lighted. Love, love, love.

            I bought this as a Christmas present for a good friend. When she opened up the box, that I paid $4.00 to have wrapped by uncommon goods, they had mislabled the box and the box she opened was a present for another friend....I ended up giving her both gifts and having to repurchase the candles. When I called uncommon goods, they were apologetic, and refunded the cost of the wrapping....really....When i explained that I had to repurchase the gift, they offered free shipping..ok....now, i have spent nearly $50 on useless quirky candles, and when we got together, and used the candles, they RUINED her tablecloth after being lit for only 10-15 min! SO NOW I am out the cost of 2 sets of candles, that I refuse to use, BUT now I have to replace her tablecloth....great gift...NOT....WOULD NOT RECOMMEND! The only reason I even gave this 2 stars is because they are cute, as long as you dont light them or put something down to protect the table.
