St. Michael the Archangel | Spices + Sandalwood + Incense
These celestial scents of spices, sandalwood, and incense are inspired by St. Michael the Archangel.
Behind the Inspiration
The name "Michael" comes from the Hebrew and means, "Who is like God?" Jewish tradition holds that this was Michael's battle cry when defending heaven against Satan and all the evil spirits.
The incense in Battle Cry immediately brings to mind prayer and the Mass, reminding us of Heaven. The strong spices, which are a nod to his role as protector and defender, are softened by the sandalwood, which calls to mind his gentler role of accompanying the sick and the dying.
St. Michael is the patron saint of police, soldiers, grocers, radiologists, doctors, mariners, paratroopers, the sick, and the dying, and he has been venerated as a healer from the time of the early Christians. His feast day, often called Michaelmas, is September 29.
St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us.

I buy a lot of candles, and I am blown away at the quality of CORDA. There’s no comparing these to any you can buy that are mass produced. I bought two candles for my husband’s birthday and we look forward to lighting them each day. The scent fills the room, and we’ve said, “It just smells SO GOOD” every time we light one. I highly recommend and plan to purchase again. I am really looking forward to trying different scents and seeing which new ones come out!
We are so happy that both you and your husband are enjoying the scents! Our small business appreciates your feedback on the quality of the candles; something very important to us. Thanks for the review Sallie! - the CORDA team
I love all candles from Corda! My favorite "smells" are the St. Michael the Archangel, Saint Joseph and Padre Pio. I highly recommend these candles!
We are so happy to hear that you have some favorite scents! Thank you for sharing how CORDA is a part of your home. We loved seeing the picture! - the CORDA team

Thanks for the review Melissa! - the CORDA team
I appreciate this scent! It is present and pleasant with anything overpowering. I will do this one again
Thanks for the review Ann! We are happy you are enjoying Battle Cry! - the CORDA team
The scent of this candle is incredible. It smells exactly like High Mass at my Church. All of the candles I've purchased through Corda are of excellent quality. You can tell they are made by a person with great love and attention, not a machine. In the past, I have bought candles from high end makers like Trapp, Nest and Voluspa. Corda is right up there with sillage and longevity. For the quality of the product and support of this mission, these candles are worth every penny
This is so wonderful to hear Carole! Thank you for sharing your thoughts on our quality ingredients and the candle scent. We really appreciate the review! - the CORDA team
Got this as a house-warming gift for my sister’s new house. She and her husband are both Marines so the title was appropriate. They loved the scent too.
We are so glad that your sister and her husband loved Battle Cry; how fitting. Thank you so much for your review Johanna! - the CORDA team
What a scent! St michaels candle burns bright in our house between morning and evening prayers reminding us we’re not in this fight against the devil alone. None of Anna’s candles have disappointed!!
What a great reminder! We are so happy that this scent has a place in your home Syd! Thanks for the review! - the CORDA team
