Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 Lightfast Pencil Sets is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intense colors Yes expensive but for me the perfect pencil for using on black paper..... There is no breakage..... Pencils can be bought individually to fill in the set as needed.... Note they are slightly thicker than average color pencil so when buying an electric pencil make sure it can accommodate Luminance pencils.....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pencils but............ I have been drooling over these pencils for awhile and finally got some for my birthday. They lay down beautifully BUT and a huge BUT the colors written on the pencil in silver are extremely difficult to read - the barrel of the pencil is a lovely cedar however I would go for the barrel being the color of the pencil over aesthetics. Contacted Caran d'Ache about them - no response......pretty bad considering the price - great product not at all easy to see what color you are using. Probably will not add to this collection. They need to remedy this issue promptly. Great service from Jerry's Artarama though - fast, courteous and efficient!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great intensity of pigment. These pencils are soft and the color selections are set in wonderful hues. The intensity of the pigment is pure. Finished work looks like paint. I love them and have used Prismacolor for years but CaranD'Ache do turn it up a notch. I would recommend these pencils for serious work because they are expensive. Use something else for practice work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A joy to use! I love the Luminance pencils, they are a joy to use. These go on creamy and smooth, they come in a good range of colors (I would love to see some more reds, browns and greens added), layering is easy, the colors blend very well, these are by far the best wax-based colored pencils I have ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as expected-beautiful color Ah, the smell of these wonderful pencils. Actually I like to think of them as oil sticks. I bought these (the 20 piece set) a few weeks ago and love the color they produce. They hold a point for quite a while before sharpening and they do sharpen very nice. I can't wait to by the largest set, saving money for that one. Oh, did I forget to mention the price? Yes, Jerrys does have the best prices guaranteed! (My opinion)

What pencil sharpener do you use with your Luminance pencils?  I have a Skilcraft electric sharpener and they do not fit.  Thanks!
