Xystos clinches deal to distribute ‘new lighting innovation’ Luminara

Xystos – the home of flame and fragrance - has just signed an agreement to distribute Luminara Real Wax Candles

Luminara™ Real Wax Candles display a dancing, flickering flame so realistic that it is all but indistinguishable from that of a naked-flame

Yet it generates no heat, no soot, no smell, and is safe around children or pets. 

Xystos unveiled Luminara at Home & Gift. Each candle includes two AA batteries and a timer and has a run time of 100 hours. Luminara, described as ‘a new lighting innovation’, is available in three sizes – five-inch, seven-inch and nine-inch – and three colours, green, red and ivory, with RRPs of £29.99, £34.99 and £39.99. There are indoor and outdoor versions.

Xystos general manager Tom Sykes says: “Luminara enables candles to be used not only in locations where you would use real candles but also in places where you would not ordinarily be able to place a conventional candle, because there is no risk of fire or injury.

“Luminara will perfectly complement our existing candle brands and we see it as a great addition to our portfolio.”
