Plumen 11W BC Low Energy Decorative Bulb, Opal

We like it because...

Using 80% less energy and lasting 8 times longer than a normal bulb, the Plumen bulb is a beautiful and economical piece of design. A great idea to make life easier.

Q & As

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Beautiful but unreliable I bought four of these and not one has lasted more than 6 months. On each occasion, one of the filaments has stopped working. The latest one only lasted two months. Very disappointed, as they look absolutely fabulous. But as a pensioner, I can't afford to buy such expensive products that don't do what they claim - they cost me over 60% of a week's pension! 08 April 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Lasted 2 months Very disappointed and reviews elsewhere share this opinion. 23 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Only lasted one year I bought two of these bulbs for our top and bottom landing. First one side of the bulb stopped working (after 6 months), then the other side went a few months later. This happened with both bulbs, so it was not a one-off. Considering the price, very disappointed. 13 June 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Delighted I love the design and it just looks great. I used click and collect which was so easy and will use that service again. 28 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Make a bulb statement! 5/5. I started with1 in the hall, its now 2 in the hall and 1 on the landing, all on red Nud cable with no shade and I can't walk past without staring at them!! I love how they look different from every angle, would highly recommend . 11 January 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Plumen designer light bulb Stylish, elegant and most surprising of all, immediately bright. In other words one does not have to wait for it to warm up to shed full strength of brightness. Too good looking to hide under a shade. 02 November 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish and practical good value too. All round winner. I love this product and the whole range of Plumen lighting. They are more than just bulbs they are a stylish accessory to any space. I have used these in my refurbished kitchen and they really complement the look while providing excellent lighting. I am really happy with this product as it simply ticks all the boxes, stylish, practical, quality, economical and good value. 02 November 2011
