*Limited Edition* Song of Songs | Cedar + Pomegranate + Apple
**Limited Edition** Available only January 1 - February 28.
These amorous scents of cedar, pomegranate, and apple are inspired by the Song of Songs.
Behind the Inspiration
Also know as the Canticle of Canticles and the Song of Solomon, this love poem in the heart of the Bible shows us the heart of God, who pursues us as a lover and Bridegroom. And the Catechism of the Catholic Church tells us that "Tradition has always seen in the Song of Solomon a unique expression of human love, a pure reflection of God's love--a love 'strong as death' that 'many waters cannot quench'" (1609).
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 Israel.
In the writings of the Church Fathers and the saints, the Song of Songs is one of the most commented upon books. St. Thérèse, for example, wrote: "If I had time, I would like to comment on the Song of Songs. I have discovered in this book such profound things about the union of the soul with her beloved." While on their deathbeds, St. Thomas Aquinas and St. John of the Cross both requested that the Song be read. Pope St. John Paul II meditated upon it whilst writing his Theology of the Body, and St. Teresa of Avila wrote an entire commentary on it.
A great starting point to learn more about the Song of Songs is in Dr. Brant Pitre's Jesus the Bridegroom: The Greatest Love Story Ever Told.

I have tried all (or maybe almost all, by now) of Corda’s scents via the samplers. This is one of my very favorites, a light but rich scent. Delightful, great for a personal space like a bedroom or dining room.
I am giving the Song of Songs candle to my dearest friend’s daughter as a wedding gift. It is a wonderful and appropriate gift to honor the couple’s sacrament of matrimony.
Thank you for this beautiful review and for gifting the candle, Diane! We hope the recipient loved it! - the CORDA team
I have this candle as well as the Morning Prayer one and Our Lady of Guadalupe and I love them all. I have also given as gifts and the recipients were very pleased.
