St. Augustine of Hippo | Pear + Fire

Regular price $21.50

**Limited Edition** Available only July 1 - August 31.

These ardent scents of pear and fire are inspired by St. Augustine of Hippo. He is the patron saint of theologians, printers, and brewers. His feast day is August 28.

Behind the Inspiration

In his famous Confessions, St. Augustine recounts a time before his conversion, when he and his friends stole pears from a neighbor, not because they wanted them, but simply for "the stealing of them and the sin," for "our only pleasure in doing it was that it was forbidden." 

Always a passionate man, after his conversion Augustine pursued what was true, good, and beautiful with all his heart. Because of this, he is often depicted in art near fire or holding a heart enflamed. St. Augustine's famous cry to God that "Our hearts are restless until they rest in you" exhorts us to continue striving for holiness.

St. Augustine of Hippo, pray for us.

    • Keep out of direct sunlight

    In love with these candles!

    These are very good quality candles and the scent blends are amazing (I also ordered the 6-sampler with different scents and I'm in love with each one of them)... you can tell these candles are made with great love and to bring joy to whomever lights them.

    Quality ingredients are so important to us and we are happy to hear that you found scents that you love! Thanks so much for the review Vanessa! - the CORDA team

    Warm & Inviting

    I bought 4 candles from Corda without smelling them and I love how unique, warm, inviting, and refreshing each smells. I of course also love the meaning behind the candles but I'm overjoyed now to come home, light a Corda candle, and feel at peace. I don't think you can go wrong ordering any of them. Will definitely be buying more!

    Thanks for the review Maelee! We are so glad to hear that the candles have become part of your day. We appreciate your support of our small business! - the CORDA team

    Warm and interesting scent

    This candle brings thoughts of fall and Christmas to mind for me with the fruit and woodsy scent. I like the inspiration behind this candle. I ordered this candle with some others and they arrived so nicely packed in the box.

    Favorite Corda Candles Scent

    I love all of my Corda Candles, but I have to say that this one is my favorite scent! It smells so lovely and cheerful. It reminds me of fresh fruit/flowers. I got it as a gift for a friend and she raved about how good this one smelled! Definitely recommend you give this one a try! :)
