Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
The 2 outdoor lanterns by my front entrance each have 3 bulb sockets. When I bought the house, the previous owner had 3 40W bulbs in each, which was so bright that I'm sure it was visible from the moon. I initially bought 3 25W bulbs to replace them, but even that was too bright. So I tried only 1 25W in each, still too bright. Now I have only 1 of these frosted 15W bulbs in each lantern and it's just right. Enough light to illuminate the front door area but allowing the neighbors to maintain some night vision! I'm sure I'm also saving a ton of money on electricity. Highly recommended.
