Back in Avenel
Geranium - Clary Sage - Patchouli
“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.”
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.
Our Products are each unique and original to Village Common. Our 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 our 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.
