Been looking for these for a while now as our lounge light takes 5 small candle screw bulbs which last no more than a month. I have seen the shelf tickets in Wilkinsons, but they never had them in. (These cost £4.99 plus everywhere else I have seen.)

6 Year Guarantee.

Also comes in a bayonet fitting.

Was in ASDA 24 in West Bridgford (Nottingham) and they sell the same energy saving lightbulbs for £1.34 (not a special offer, regular price)

Same brand = GE but a different box (more modern).

* 9W (equals 40W = 405Lm)
* E14 SES fitting (small screw)
* 6,000 hours = 6 years
* 220-240V 2700K Warm white

You can use it with a dimmer switch but it won't alter the brightness. As you turn the dimmer down from full the compact fluorescents start to flicker and then go out. Basically you leave the dimmer at full and use it purely as a lightswitch. Why? Well, it saves having to change back to a normal switch and the dimmer's still there if you decide to revert to normal bulbs in the future.

You can buy compact fluorescents (low energy bulbs) that are designed to work with a dimmer but I expect they will be quite costly. Not sure of any links but I am sure a Google will turn up something.

These people were the subject of a post a while ago. They do a 99p range including candle bulbs:

Fair enough, there were loads at my local Tesco and you could mix and match different types.

Our lounge & dining room light fittings are gold & smoked glass with the bulbs being very visible. For this reason we have always used clear candle bulbs - 8 in total. We have tried a white candle bulb & it looks awful. The longlife bulbs tend to be even more white looking. As incandescent bulbs are soon to go does anyone have any helpful suggestions?
