This quarter’s theme was As You Wish… or The Princess Bride! I absolutely LOVE this movie so I was super excited to receive my box. I don’t watch a lot of movies, but I highly recommend this one if you’ve never seen it before.
Product card with all of the scent descriptions!
I loved the color theme of this box – golds, yellows, greens, and a little bit of orange.
Prepare to Die OCD Hand Sanitizer – A warm blend of fresh baked cookie dough spiced with clove and saffron.
I was so surprised to find myself loving this scent after reading the description! It is SO GOOD. It’s hard to describe in concrete terms, but it’s warmth, coziness, sweet bakery scents, and just a dash of spice to round it out. To me, it’s the perfect fall scent if you love baked goods and cozying up as the weather grows colder. This is hands down my favorite scent in the entire fall box.
Their hand sanitizer remains one of my favorite products, of course, and I love that this one is full of sparkles! I seriously cannot stop smelling the back of my hand (where I had tested this product).
Buttercup Shampoo – candied rum wrapped with ripe fig, bergamot, vetiver, warm sandalwood, and sweet vanilla musk.
This one is hard to pinpoint. I think I smell some hints of plum (which is probably actually the fig) and at the same time the vetiver and sandalwood make this more “woodsy”… but overall, it’s a nice scent. I’ll have to try this out in a whipped cream to see if I actually like it or not. Liquid shampoo is one of their newer products, so it’s awesome that they’re sending out a sample for those who haven’t tried it yet!
Mostly Dead Whipped Cream – Golden honey drizzled over toasted almonds and pumpkin puree.
This is one for the pumpkin lovers! I think it might be the almonds, but there’s something that’s just too “potpourri” for my liking (it dries down more floral-like as well). It’s very sweet and almost reminds me of marshmallows or rice crispies, somehow. I have no doubt that people who loved FCS’ other pumpkin scents will love this too.
Their whipped cream is probably my favorite product because the scent lasts forever and it’s super moisturizing on your skin.
Pit of Despair Steam Me Up Scotty – Patchouli, fresh-cut lemongrass, and tropical plumeria.
I thought I would really dislike this because I’m really not a fan of patchouli, but somehow this works! It’s probably the most unisex scent in the box and it’s super clean and super fresh! It reminds me of really nice soap. XD I know that’s not the best description, but the lemongrass really shines through and it’s quite a pleasant scent. I’m so glad that FCS brought back their steam me up scotty product (or shower steamers) for fall because I don’t take baths and these are the closest you can get to a bath bomb without using one. XD
Mawiage Scented Cotton Ball – Rich pound cake, scented with cardamom, pistachio, and rosewater topped with creamy buttercream.
Maybe it’s because it’s on the cotton ball, but this smells really green and leafy to me! It’s almost like… celery? Maybe that’s just how the scents come together, but if you keep sniffing, you do get that rosewater note later on. I could tell from the description that I wouldn’t really like this one so I think I probably won’t buy anything full size in this scent. The reason why it’s on a cotton ball and not in an actual product is because their facial moisturizer is unscented but they wanted to let you try all of the new scents!
Drop Your Sword Fortune Cookie Soap – Aromatic blend of medieval honey apple mead.
This is so amazing. It smells like everything you want apples and honey to be. It reminds me of this apple gum I used to enjoy and it is AMAZING. There’s that slight hint of floral from the honey, which balances perfectly with the tart freshness of the apple… and all of it is encompassed by the warm sweetness of mead. Look at how awesome the tiny plastic sword is! My fortune, which I forgot to take a photo of, says “People cannot be trusted”.
The Fall 2016 Fortune Cookie Soap Box!
Overall enjoyment: My top three favorite scents were – Prepare to Die, Drop Your Sword, and… it’s a toss up between Buttercup and Pit of Despair for spot number three. Although I think Pit of Despair might just edge it out a little. XD If you received this box, don’t forget to check your email for the $10 coupon code! And if you’re interested in trying out these scents in full size products, the launch party is on August 26, 2016 at 6PM CST.
