For lay people who rarely deal with complex light distributions but rather with the point sources, luminous flux gives an idea of the overall amount of light emitted.
Estimation of efficiency of different luminaries may lead to erroneous assessment, because luminous flux is calculated using rather large area steps (0.

Photometric quantities, such as luminous flux [International System of Units (SI) unit lumens], are designed as a realistic metric for human perception of light by appropriately accounting for the human eye's varying response as a function of wavelength.
