Fortune Cookie Soap Box: Fall 2014

Ah, Fall! My absolute favorite season. Chunky sweaters, crunchy leaves, cinnamon on everything, and the sweet sounds of Lambeau Field down the street from my house... 

I already knew I was going to love this edition of Fortune Cookie Soap's Soap Box because 1) I have loved ALL of the Soap Boxes so far and 2) I knew it would have fall scents which means cinnamon, pumpkin, and spicy goodness! But then they went and made the theme The Wizard of Oz/Wicked and that made it absolutely perfection for me!

If you're not familiar with the Fortune Cookie Soap Box, you'll find more information here. Basically, they release four larger collections per year & the soap box is a chance to check out the new scents + products! You also get a $10 off coupon inside the box to use towards full size products in the shop!

But, enough chit chat. Let's see what's in the box, shall we?

Such an exciting box to open up! And I could immediately smell everything at once which is both overwhelming and amazing!

"There's No Place Like Home" Fortune Cookie Soap
Curled Macintosh apple peels lovingly kissed with a hint of cinnamon, allspice, and clove, make this fragrance warm and cozy, just like home--as long as home's not in Kansas! ;) 

"Miss Popular" Bubble Bath Powder
As bubbly and sticky sweet as they come, but maybe not quite what you'd expect, with a depth of scent that is both unexpected and enchanting. The most delectable, sweet, honey nectar shamelessly flirting with touches of star anise, star jasmine, sweet orange, and blushing violet. 

"The Shiz" Perfume Oil
A woodland hike through damp balsam woods, with top notes of maple leaves blowing through new dawn blossom, laurel, and sweet clove. 

"Swankified" Walnut Facial Scrub
Bunches of ripe bananas mashed into sweet, sugary cake batter, then topped with walnuts and baked to a golden brown. 

"Hair Flip" Hair Oil
Strands of sweet hazelnut woven throughout rich, buttery vanilla cream. 

"Roy G. Biv" OCD Hand Sanitizer
A full spectrum of bright citrus notes and florals against a cool fall background. Dusky breezes and bonfires, wind-blown leaves and charred woods brightened by notes of lemon, mandarin, cotton blossom and soft vanilla. 

"Flying Monkeys" Personal Space Air Freshener
Mischief is in the air with this fruity, breezy blend of peach, watermelon, neroli and jasmine with air and aquatic notes. But the real star of this fragrance? Fresh, ripe bananas!

"Green Is The New Black" Whipped Cream
Sweet pumpkin pie filling with the perfect touch of cinnamon, ginger and brown sugar, finished with a generous dollop of fresh whipped cream. 

This time around there were actual four different varieties of the Whipped Cream. Here are the other scents that some subscribers received:
"BFFs" Blueberries and pumpkins might be considered an unexpected friendship, but in this unique scent, they're inseparable! Stick, sugared blueberries, and luscious baked pumpkin with all the fall spices atop a warm cake accord. 
"No Good Deed" Creamy pumpkin puree, ground cinnamon, Vermont maple syrup, run, french vanilla and caramelized sugar. 
"Wicked, Good" Top notes of orange, apple, pear, pineapple, and cherries lured into autumn by pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, all rounded out with warm vanilla-infused sugar. 

Did you get the Fall Soap Box? What was your favorite product or scent? I always love the whipped creams and I am really loving the hair oil from this box! Favorite scent is The Shiz, hands down, but I also really like There's No Place Like Home & Green Is The New Black. 

The collection actually launched last night in the store and on the website (sorry, late on my review!) so a lot of items are currently sold out but they'll be restocking soon! Some of the new products added with this launch are the walnut facial scrub, hair oil, foaming hand soap, & leave in conditioner. They've also added larger sizes of the whipped creams & OCD hand sanitizers. :)
