St. Augustine of Hippo | Pear + Fire

Regular price $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 loved the Saint Augustine candle. The scent was clean, fragrant but not overwhelming. Perfect for a man or a woman. Thank you, Anna!

    My new favorite candles

    I am having a hard time picking my favorite Corda candle fragrance. Each is unique and because each is meaningful, makes me enjoy them in my home differently. They are becoming my go-to gift as well. Highly recommend.

    I love Corda candles. Everyone comments on the beautiful scent

    My New Favorite

    St. Augustine is my confirmation saint and so I knew I had to try this scent. I got it in a tealight because I wasn't sure if I would like it, but was really surprised! The pear and fire combination is very intriguing and it is now one of my favorite scents. I will be back soon to buy it in 6oz size. Thank you!

    Great for the car when it's low

    What a cool blend! We love the Augustine connection on this one - how does Anna get the combos SO PERFECT? We put it in the van when it ran too low to burn anymore and it really scents it nicely!
