Everyday Metal Flat Scroll Illuma-Lid® Jar Candle Topper
I had high expectations about these jar toppers. First, I did not find these attractive because the finish looked dull. Secondly, I burned two large jar candles over 4 hours with the jar lids on and the wax was not melted fully although in previous burns of 4 hours the wax was fully melted without the jar lids. So I guess my experience was different than some of the reviewers. I do have two other jar toppers that are domed shape and they work great. Overall, I think some jar toppers help with fully melting the wax but they don't enhance the fragrance. If I use them, I remove them when the wax is fully melted and then the fragrance is released.

Illuma-lids have made a huge difference in how well my candles burn. They develop a nice, full wax pool easier with the use of one.
This illuma-lid was the first style I bought and I liked it so much that I bought three more. The design is very pretty and like I mentioned, it made a huge difference in my candle burning. The only reason that I gave it four stars instead of five is that I've found that the heavier-duty illuma-lids that really cover the mouth of the jar (instead of resting flat on it) develop better wax pools and seem to fit all jars more consistently.

Ive been a yankee fan for years. I have over 30 large candles right now and I've always had trouble burning the large jar ones. I never get an even pool of wax. Every single large jar candle I have ever owned which is well over 150 has never burned properly. I don't have trouble with the tumbler ones tho. Those always burn evenly. The reason I decided to try this illuma lid is because I read a lot of reviews saying it helps create an even wax pool. I know the description doesn't say that's what it is for. But I had hopes. It does help with the draft and I also feel like it takes away from the scent. I smell the candles less. I have yet to leave a bad review for yankee and I feel bad doing it. But I wouldn't recommend this. I don't know why I can't get my large jar candles to create an even pool of wax. I trim my candles all the time. The only thing that helps is doing the foil trick which looks very unatractive. I hope yankee candle creates something to put around your candle that's adjustable that will help melt the wax evenly that could replace the foil trick. Thats my wish. This illumalid is pretty tho but I wouldn't buy anymore.

I had looked at these for a while .. read lots of reviews ... finally bought 2 ... one for me & one for my Mom for Mother's Day. We both fell in love with these. They make burning easier and the smell stands out so much better. Highly recommend these!!! Looking for a gift? ... buy one of these with your favorite Yankee Candle!!!

A nice surprise!
Works well with the medium and large jars as stated, but I was delighted to find that this topper works quite well with the small tumbler as well. Creates a perfect flame and a very nice wax pool too. Highly recommended!

Romantic Design & Multi-seasonal
I like the domed and flat lids. I have a bunch of domed lids including seasonal because I like to match my lid to the candle and season. This is my first flat lid. I especially like this one because of it's romantic style. It's multi-seasonal and matches any candle you burn. I have found all of my lids work well. I do keep a window or screen open to get the reverse air flow when burning my candles and I find the lids really do create an even burn which is essential to get the most from your candle as well as keep drafts from disturbing my candles. These also make a good gift add on with a medium or large jar candle.

My favorite Illuma-lid
This is my favorite illuma-lid of all, and I have a lot of them! It is great year-round and I love the flat design which seems to allow more throw and I adore the elegant scrollwork.

Simple and Nice
The design is very pretty. I must admit that I enjoy the doomed illuma-lids better.
