These fragrant scents of coffee and the odor of sanctity are inspired by St. Padre Pio. 
Nuanced with notes of florals, vanilla, tobacco, wood, and musk. 
Behind the Inspiration
This Capuchin friar was the first priest to bear the stigmata, which gave off a pleasant fragrance experienced by skeptics and believers alike. Between the many hours he spent hearing confessions, Pio would drink a bowl of coffee while corresponding with people around the world who sought his spiritual direction.

St. Padre Pio’s feast day is September 23.

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

Great gift

I gave this as a Christmas gift to a coworker and she loved it! She said that the scent was not overpowering but enough to fill the room.

Smells amazing

I am incredibly pleased with this candle! I gave it to my husband for Christmas…but all of us have been lighting it and enjoying its smell! We have had a devotion to Padre Pio for years. Somehow, Corda has figured out exactly what the odor of sanctity would smell like when mixed with the aroma of coffee. Perfect for morning contemplation. Corda candles rock.

Great communication!

Anna quickly responded when I emailed her asking if I could add one more candle to my order after I received the email that my order was shipping. Each email I sent her was met with a quick response.

Love these beautiful candles

There is something mysterious and beautiful about the way these candles bring scent to the beauty and saints of the Catholic Church . So sublime yet so inspiring!

Heavenly Scent

Lovely scent with a musky undertone. It's my husband's birthday gift, but we love having it in the kitchen where it so beautifully reminds us of our blessings. Thank you for your craftsmanship and prayers. We pray for you and your ministry too.

Beautiful Fragrance

I bought a tealight first to see how I would like the fragrance and I loved it. While it burned, it reminded me of being in Mass. I had the pleasure of visiting San Giovanni Rotundo last month. I was blessed to receive a healing while attending Mass in Padre Pio's chapel. This fragrance will always take me back to that special place.

His presence

I initially received this candle in a tea light sampler and loved the smell but both the saint and now the scent also hold an extra special place in my heart. My grandma passed away a couple years ago and we were unable to be with her during that time. She wasn’t Catholic but always had a love for Padre Pio and prior to her death she told my mom that he came to visit her. At the same time the scent from this tiny UNLIT tea light filled the main area of my house. It had been sitting out on my shelf with the others from the sample pack for weeks but it was suddenly a very noticeable scent in the room. I have no doubt that Padre was there with us and her as she passed. I have since purchased the full sized candle for myself and my mom. A wonderful scent and beautiful memory.
