Why try just one candle, when you can try them all? Introducing the Plage Noire Trio candle set. This set includes a full size (12 oz) of each of the candles in the Plage Noire collection: Inkwell, Haven, and Azurest.
Just like the magical place that is Inkwell Beach in Oak Bluffs on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, the Inkwell candle was designed to supply feelings of Freedom, Restoration, Celebration, and Wholeness. Since the late 1890s, Oak Bluffs and the Inkwell have served as places of refuge for African-Americans. With vibrant and sweet fragrance notes, each burn of the Inkwell candle will invoke memories of soul-refreshing summer mornings on the Vineyard.
Designed to evoke feelings of safety and warmth through grounding notes of amber and musk, the Haven candle is ideal for finding reconnection and balance. This bold but nurturing scent is named in honor of Havens Beach in Sag Harbor, NY, which has served as a place of refuge for African-Americans since the 1800s. Light this candle and receive a big hug as you are enveloped by feelings of immense joy and hope.
Let the calming notes of lavender and sage take you to a place of calm and tranquility with the Azurest candle. Azurest was the first of four African-American beach communities in Sag Harbor, NY, founded by sisters Maude Terry and Amaza Lee Meredith in the 1940s with the name signifying a “heavenly peace, blue rest, blue haven.” This candle will transport you to an ethereal place of rest, release, and fresh air as you prepare for sweet sleep. Breathe in peace, exhale the cares of this world.

About the Brand
SANCTUAIRE is an inclusive wellness and lifestyle brand centered on the products, places, and practices that create sanctuary. In February 2023, SANCTUAIRE debuted the Plage Noire Collection in recognition and tribute to African-American beachfront communities across the United States. These communities were founded as places of refuge and retreat during segregation and the Jim Crow era when Black people were forbidden from many resorts, pools and beaches. In order to facilitate leisure and sanctuary, beach communities in places like Oak Bluffs, MA, and Sag Harbor, NY, were created. Black families would enjoy relaxation without harassment and would return year after year for joyful communion. Through this home and fine fragrance collection, we hope to capture the essence of these beach communities - the Joy, Resistance, Peace, Resilience, and Rest that are so vital to America’s past and present stories.
