These humble scents of cypress, stone, and earth are inspired by St. Francis of Assisi.

Nuanced with notes of moss, water, minerals, and patchouli.

Behind the Inspiration
This “little poor man,” as Francis called himself, joyfully gave up all he had to follow Christ, embracing a life of radical poverty. Cypress calls to mind the area around Assisi where he roamed, begging for stones to rebuild God’s church and preaching the peace of the Gospel, while earth recalls his humility and love of creation.

St. Francis’s feast day is October 4.

Each candle is handcrafted with CORDA's proprietary coconut wax blend, custom phthalate-free fragrances blended in-house, and a cotton and paper wick primed with all-natural wax. Learn more about the ingredients here.

You’ll get the cleanest, longest, and safest burn from your candle with a few simple steps:

  • Always trim the wick before lighting to 1/8”–1/4”
  • Burn until the melted wax reaches edge to edge, or very nearly, to reduce tunneling
  • Burn only up to 4 hours at a time
  • Always keep a burning candle in sight, away from flammable materials, out of drafts, out of reach of pets and children, and on a heat-safe surface
  • Keep out of direct sunlight

Perfect for Christmas

When I purchased the fragrance based on the smell description, I felt the cypress essence would be a good evergreen scent for Christmas time. I hope the person and her family enjoy it and the connection with St. Francis. Not sure why Alpine Ascent doesn’t have these essences.
