Everyday Metal Flat Scroll Illuma-Lid® Jar Candle Topper
They really do work!!
I am so glad I tried these!! They truly save the life of your candle. Yankee Candles are not cheap candles, why not treat them right! I see very little to absolutely no soot on my candles. I live in a draftey, 100 year old home and my candles would ALWAYS tunnel. Not anymore when using these. If you don't use these, you need to!!!

Classic and Attractive
This is a classic look...there is also a holder for the bottom of the jar that matches this - makes a beautiful pair for any season. The only thing to note is that this topper is flat on the top of the jar, which is a slightly different look than the domed jar toppers. I love this set - great investment!

Very classy looking
I really like this design and the silver color. It adds a look of class to the candle!

Beautiful and useful
I bought this item to reduce the draft on the flame of the candle, which it does a great job doing, but what I have also noticed is that it seems to catch most of the black soot that result from burning candles which keeps my ceilings from building up any dark spots. Love this product!!!

No more worrying about drafts
I've found the candles burn longer and more evenly when I use the Illuma-Lids on the jars. And I love anything that lets me enjoy my Yankee Candles longer. The simple but elegant design fits in any home.

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.
