Scents of the saints
Sharing the Gospel through scent
CORDA bridges the sacred and the secular, bringing the faith to everyday moments.
We create and custom blend our signature scents in house and handcraft them into candles through 30+ steps. Complemented with a modern design and sustainable ingredients, these are saint candles like you've never seen, or smelled, before!
The fruit of love and prayer, each candle draws on the richness of our devotions, liturgy, and tradition, as well as the day to day lives and heavenly patronages of holy men and women. May the light of their lives point us to the Light of the World.
I love the Corda candles and now I have a very stylish wick trimmer that I use to make sure my candle wicks are at the correct height. Great job, Anna!
I was looking for a Catholic candle company to try out and I found Corda! The scents are gentle and beautifully crafted to reflect the saints. I loved my first order so much I bought a bunch more to share with my kids' teachers! Anna was super helpful in filling my rush order. I am grateful for her help and grateful to have found Corda!
Beautiful soft fragrance which enhances prayer time
Smells so good. It is my favorite candle from Cordarone so far.
This was a Mother's Day gift and my mom loves this candle! Thank you so much for making such amazing candles.
I always managed to drop the burnt wick into the candle when I used regular scissors. The wick trimmer works so well and my candle stays clean. It’s well worth the money.
This candle is truly exceptional. In my humble opinion. It is soothing, calming, and is a beautiful addition when praying. Invokes great serenity! Thank you, Anna for such a delightful experience.
These candles smell amazing! Wonderful quality as well!
Candles that smell so nice, burn clean and heck you can even re-use the glass!! (When candle is done, pop it in the freezer to remove any remaining wax, then into the dishwasher and voilà a great water glass for the bedside table!!) thanks Anna and the Corda team for such thoughtful and beautiful candles!
I purchased three candles and the adorable matchstick holder! My daughter had gone to World Youth Day in Spain and loved Avila. Thankfully she's enjoying St. Teresa's candle as well. We will definitely be repeat customers and will be using for Christmas gifts too:)
I've ordered several different scents and also given them as gifts. I love every candle and also recieved rave thank you's on the candles gifted. I look forward to ordering other scents. Also love the wick trimmer. It's angled perfectly for its purpose!
This was a great gift set for Mother’s Day! I loved the tags with the descriptions as well.
I received these candles several weeks ago and just recently tried them out.
As Ephesians 5:2 reads, “And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath delivered himself for us, an oblation and a sacrifice to God for an odour of sweetness.”
Shower of Roses, St. Therese of Lisieux, delivers gentle sweet roses that are quieting to the spirit.
Cloistered Heart, St. Elizabeth of the Trinity , brings to mind woodland flowers and the sweetness of blooming fruit trees in the spring.
Mystic Bliss, St. Teresa of Avila, inspires my mornings with its clean and spicy aroma.
Thank you, Anna, for sharing your prayer-inspiring gift with us.
The first time I experienced this candle (and it truly IS an experience!) a friend had given it to me as a gift. I was so delighted by it, it’s now my favorite gift to give! Everyone should have a chance to enjoy this one. 💙 The Marian themed candles are a big hit for us at the House of Discernment!
