St. Augustine of Hippo | Pear + Fire

Precio habitual $21.50

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.

    I haven’t met a CORDA scent I didn’t like! This is my absolutely favorite candle company and I love the spiritual theming behind the candles and supporting a Catholic family business!

    Thanks for the review Mary Beth! - the CORDA team

    I have a confession....

    I love this candle! I got it as a present for a friend of mine because St Augustine is his confirmation saint and I was so excited to give it to him. First of all, Corda candles are gorgeous to look at and on top of that it has such a pleasant smell. Perfect for gifting!

    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.

    This scent is such a nice, refreshing scent. It's not too strong but gives the room a nice smell. This candle has been a great house candle!
