Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati | Mountain Air + Pipe Smoke

Regular price $21.50

These uplifting scents of mountain air and pipe smoke are inspired by Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati. He is the patron of Italian Confraternities and his intercession is frequently invoked by students, mountain climbers, youth, and Dominican tertiaries. Pier Giorgio's feast day is July 4.
Behind the Inspiration: 
Pier Giorgio is well known and loved for his example of true masculinity, and in perhaps his most famous photograph he is in the mountains smoking a pipe. Growing up near the foothills of the Alps, he was a skilled mountain climber. In a letter he wrote, "With every passing day, I fall madly in love with the mountains; their fascination attracts me." 
In another famous photograph, Pier Giorgio is climbing a mountain face. He actually sent this second picture to a friend just days before his death, having written "Verso l'alto" on it. His message can be translated "To the heights" or "To the top," a play on his love for mountain climbing and his deep love for God.
Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, pray for us.

  • Keep out of direct sunlight
Each candle is handcrafted with CORDA's proprietary all-natural coconut wax blend, custom phthalate-free fragrances, and a cotton and paper wick primed with all-natural wax. Learn more about the ingredients here.

One of my favorites!

This candle has a fresh smell with floral undertones. It smells so good! It's one of my favorite Corda Candle scents! Definitely give it a try! :)

Barbara Bertucio
Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati candle

This candle is my favorite! I love the "outdoorsy" scent and it always makes me visualize Pier on the mountain in his hiking attire. It is a peaceful scent , yet "rugged"- a favorite!!

Amanda Trombley
so calming and wonderful

My "word" for the year is actually Bl. Frassati's famous phrase "Verso L'alto" and this is the perfect companion for meditating on centering my life higher/to the top and closer to God. The scent is so perfect for prayer and is not overpowering but still very distinct.

Ana Maldonado
Such a great gift!

A manly scent without being overwhelming. My friend felt so loved when she saw I knew her favorite saint and got it for her in a candle scent!
