Soy Wax // Coconut Oil // 100% Pure Essential Oils // 50hr

**A fresh floral scent grounded by herbaceous and earthy notes, reminiscent of times goneby.

“On the shore, the dream was born Village Common would soon adorn. With fresh geranium for passers by. Here is where the vision lie. Antiques & home goods started it then. The passion continues with younger kin. Years ago & more to come Avenel, where it all came from.” -Blake Hays

Back in Avenel is inspired by the history of Village Common. Grandma Bernadette opened her first Village Common market in Avenel, NJ in 1968. Drawing on family memories of the Avenel Market, the fresh scent of geraniums filling the market air conjured unforgettable images of Village Common’s rich history.

About The Brand

Village Common is a dream three generations in the making, spanning over 40 years. They are continuing our families passion, rooted in bringing authentic, unique, and well-made products to the community. Beginning in 1968, and from where they get their name, the first Village Common opened its doors in Avenel, New Jersey. It was run by Grandma Bernadette, current owner Ben Lebel’s grandmother. From their southern roots, Billy Hays, current owner Blake Hays’ grandfather, opened his first country store in Pineville, Louisiana in 1960. It served as a vintage bodega; offering local produce and custom goods. Blake Hays and Benjamin Lebel bring to you a new installment of these family traditions blended together. Creating handmade, natural apothecary goods, kindled by their family history, Ben and Blake are continuing the legacy of the Village Common. Their scents are inspired by the American landscape and hand-crafted in small batches in the USA. Each scent is named for locations held near to their hearts - childhood homes, inspiring travels, our rich history - and is accompanied with an original poem, penned by owner Blake Hays, that is meant to capture the ephemeral essence of each candles namesake.
