Scents of the saints
Sharing the Gospel through scent
CORDA bridges the sacred and the secular, bringing the faith to everyday moments.
We create and custom blend our signature scents in house and handcraft them into candles through 30+ steps. Complemented with a modern design and sustainable ingredients, these are saint candles like you've never seen, or smelled, before!
The fruit of love and prayer, each candle draws on the richness of our devotions, liturgy, and tradition, as well as the day to day lives and heavenly patronages of holy men and women. May the light of their lives point us to the Light of the World.
I kept one and gave one and I definitely enjoy them and talking with our child about each one but most of all I am appreciative of the great customer service. Thank you again!
Bought it as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend, and he loves the smell. It has a subtle, manly scent and perfectly embodies a "carpenter shop" and St. Joseph! Thank you for a great product. Will be shopping at Corda again!
This candle was a great choice for the Christmas Season and beyond. The aroma of pine and roses is soothing and combines two favorite scents while honoring Mary.
I ordered 2 sets of these samplers:
Alpine Ascent, Restless Heart, Carpenter Shop, Battle Cry, Compline, and Valor and Grace.
These are great scents, and make great gifts!
My wife loves candles, and the Valor and Grace is her absolute favorite scented candle (and admittedly, mine as well). That candle fills the house with a truly heavenly fragrance in a way no other candle does, and is sure to make regular appearances as gifts for special occasions.
This was a lovely array of scents. I let my 2 year old pick one out for me to have lit during my prayer time every day, and they are a beautiful addition to that time with my Lord.
I ordered a set of three candles and somehow my order never arrived. I emailed Anna and she immediately responded and said that she sent her husband out to the Post Office to investigate. Not only did she respond promptly, she sent out another set! That pleasantly surprised me. I wasn't expecting that. I've been telling everyone who loves candles about this company!
The candles themselves are amazing! I hear lots of positive comments as I have the candles on my desk in the reception area. Favorite scents are quickly emerging. We can't wait to try some of the others. Now knowing that Anna will make sure that they arrive, I have no hesitancy in ordering in the future. Thanks again, Anna, for such outstanding service!
I have purchased many of their candles & the scents are on point. Love these candles! I won’t buy them anywhere else.
I can’t believe how real this candle smells! It’s not like a fake fruity scent which is a problem with most candles of its kind. It’s very calming to burn this one. I love how it’s St. Augustine themed. I will spend all my “candle budget” on Corda from now on— I’m simply hooked! Everyone is a winner. They’re not only Catholic themed, they’re amazing quality.
The espanol set was a gift. I wasn’t sure the recipient would like all of the scents but they were great! High quality scents and great customer service.
I bought this for my daughter Sophia. She says it is her favorite!
It’s a joy to smell this candle every morning during prayer!
This was the perfect size to put in someone’s stocking, and to help figure which full size candle to order in the future. These burned well and they all had a very pleasant smell.
Anna's candles are so beautiful so so so pleased with the 3 that I ordered, the scents are clean and fresh and wonderful for prayer. Can't recommend CORDA enough!
I love the scent of Gifts for a King! It makes me feel as if I'm at Mass. I've enjoyed all the Corda candles I've purchased but this may be my favorite scent.
Explore by Patronages and Feasts
January feast day
Summa, inspired by St. Thomas Aquinas
A Dominican priest, professor, and Doctor of the Church, St. Thomas Aquinas is the patron saint of students and universities. His feast day is January 28.
With scholastic notes of books, ink, and straw, this candle calls to mind his prodigious theological works and beautiful Eucharistic hymns, as well as his insistence that all his work was nothing compared to the glory of God.
Marked by Love, inspired by Padre Pio
Padre Pio experienced a lot of anxiety and physical sufferings throughout his life, and he is the patron saint of "January blues." Yet he always insisted on having faith in God's goodness: "Don't spend your energies on things that generate worry, anxiety and anguish. Only one thing is necessary: Lift up your spirit, and love God."
His candle has fragrant scents of coffee and the odor of sanctity to connect us with his day to day life and his mystical relationship with God.
Valentine's Day gifting
Sweeter than Wine, inspired by the Song of Songs
There is a love poem at the heart of the Bible that shows us the heart of God, who pursues us as a lover and bridegroom.
Cedar is present throughout the Song, with both the bride and groomed perfumed with it. Pomegranate references the bride, with apple connected to the bridegroom. And the scents remind us of the holy temple and God's espousal of his people.
