*Limited Edition* St. Martin de Porres | Lemon + Barbershop
Around this time, he also began volunteering at a Dominican priory, doing the most menial of tasks. Eventually, Martin was welcomed as a brother and he used his barbering and surgery skills to care for the other Dominicans and the poor in the infirmary.
In art he is often depicted with a lemon tree, which signifies the many miracles attributed to St. Martin, even during his life. Part of his work included tending the priory garden and one story tells of a lemon tree that he planted that blossomed and bore fruit year round, providing fruit for the monks and the poor.
St. Martin de Porres, pray for us.
Has a lovely scent to it and is wonderful to pray with. Just too strong for me, extremely fragrant.
Such a cool candle to give to your hairdresser or barber for Christmas! It was much appreciated and hopefully planted some seeds of interest in this amazing saint.
What a unique idea for a gift Amy! Thank you so much for sharing and for the review! - the CORDA team

Thank you for your review, Christopher! - Anna
The combination of lemon and barbershop is soothing. As with other CORDA candles, the throw of the scent is pleasant, not overpowering. Thank you, Anna, for all your work in making CORDA candles!
This candle was an impromptu purchase, but I figured I would like it because of the lemon and barbershop. It’s a perfect candle for weekend mornings or afternoons, something light and refreshing. I have never trimmed candle wicks before, but thanks to the care guide I do now. I forgot once and realized why wick care is so important. Thanks for a nice fresh scent!
