Couple of issues with the bulb.
You CANT control the bulb if your not close to it UNLESS you have a HomePod or Apple TV set up on the network. so don’t bother automating it to turn off when you leave the house or when you arrive because you will be too far away for a connection to your phone.
The bulbs firmware has been on 1.2.13 and I’ve tried updating it 4 times but that doesn’t seem to work (still in 1.2.13 wants 1.6.41)
But other than that it has some nice scenes.
Maybe look at some other ones on the market.

The lighting is good however unfortunately the connection to the product is very poor. I spent hours trying to pair to the light holding different devices right next to it until it finally decided to pair, only for it to tell me I needed to update the firmware. So of course I followed that process and the update would get to around 3 percent even after leaving it 'updating' for long periods of time next to the bulb just to say some sort of error connecting and to 'try again'. I am quite upset with this as there seems to be no way for it to ever work the way it should, I could never get it to pair with Google home either, and while in the app trying to turn it on and off and change colour/brightness etc (which is good on the rare occasion it works) however loses connection even while device is right next to the bulb. Not worth the time or the hassle by any means.
I've tried other smart lights but this works very well with Apple-Home. Would love the see the Nanoleaf Bloom with unique designs brought back!
I have 10 Essentials bulbs in my house and enjoy them very much. One of my oldest did start playing up, but NanoLeaf support was excellent and I received a replacement with minimum fuss.
I’m sure these are great when they work, but I have been trying with support for over a month now to connect them with google and it still doesn’t work!
