Whenever my box arrives I have to admit the first thing I always reach for is the cute little fortune cookie soap. This one is “There’s No Place Like Home” Its a beautiful ruby red color. Instantly upon opening the package you can smell apple and cinnamon which are the perfect fall items to have.

This is described as “Curled Macintosh apple peels lovingly kissed with a hint of cinnamon, allspice and clove, make this fragrance warm and cozy, just like home…”

Inside every fortune cookie soap you get a fortune and mine said “Whoever said nothing was impossible never tried slamming a revolving door.”

“Miss Popular Bubble Bath Powder”. I think this is enough for one bath but I was able to split it into two because I loved the scent of this. I was trying to figure out what it was (I always try to figure out what the scents are before looking at the card) and I just couldn’t place it.  I have smelled this before and I actually love the scent.

This is described as ” As bubbly and sticky sweet as they come, but maybe not quite what you’d expect, such as 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 little brown bottle is “The Shiz Perfume Oil” I first have to comment on how cute this little bottle is and its nice because its completely filled with perfume oil. I basically use the perfume oil like a perfume. For me this is the perfect fall scent you can smell a bit of musk with the smell of tree. At first I thought it was a little strong (remember alot goes a long way) but as I was wearing I started to enjoy it and I think this would also be perfect to wear in the winter as well.

Its described as “Normally you wouldn’t want to smell like shiz, but get ready to eat those words! What? It wouldn’t be FCS without an inappropriate remark or two! A woodland hike through damp balsam woods, with top notes of maple leaves blowing through new dawn blossom, laurel and sweet clove.

Handcrafted pure perfume oil, not cut or diluted.”

The White bottle is “Hair Flip Hair oil”. When I smelled this I instantly thought of yummy baked goodies. This is delicious. You can smell the hazelnut in this. I use roughly 4-5 drops after drying my hair and I have been using it almost every other day. I should let you know that this is a new item being introduced into the collection.

Its described as “The beauty of what we do here at FCS, is that if we decide we want something new, we just go ahead and make it! *flip flip!*

Please give a round of applause for our new custom blend of oils, formulated to nourish and repair dry, damaged hair.
1-2 drops is all you need for ultimate shine without greasy residue. Strands of sweet hazelnut woven throughout rich, buttery vanilla cream.”

“Swankified Walnut Facial Scrub” This is a new item that is being introduced into the skin care line. Smelling this you can tell this is a walnut item. One of the things I like about this is its a dual item that can be used on the face to exfoliate or a body scrub. I did try this on my face and since I have sensitive skin I found it a little rough but as a body scrub its fantastic. It leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft.

Its described as “As we continue to expand our skincare line, we’d like to introduce you to our new, daily scrub! We had your face in mind, but feel free to “swankify”?all your parts! Bunches of ripe bananas mashed into sweet, sugary cake batter, then topped with walnuts and baked to a golden brown.

Our Walnut Body Scrub is a luxuriously thick and creamy textured body scrub that is designed to help detox and exfoliate the face, revealing a new layer of smooth, shiny, healthy skin.”

“Green is the New Black whipped cream”  I love their whipped creams. I think I have gotten to the point that I can no longer smell what the scents are in this box but I am able to tell you that this smells like something baking. Its  thick but not heavy or oily on the skin. Its a perfect cream.

“Because orange would have been too obvious! 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.”

Finally the last two items of the box.

“Roy C. Biv OCD Hand Sanitizer. I am always carrying around a hand sanitizer in my purse especially getting into the fall season. I have tried other brands but I have to say that the FCS ones are the best. I love the smell of them and over the years they have perfected the bottle which is nice. Michael has said in that other brands either smell strong or they burn when he uses them. Since trying the FCS ones he tells me that isn’t a issue. He loves that its not thick and gooey and that they smell good. Which I have to agree they aren’t strong and they smell so good. I love the smell of this, it smells like a fresh clean citrus smell.

“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 Monkey’s Personal Space Spray” This is another item I love in the FCS collection. They always have the best air freshener sprays. They last quite a long time too. I have this one in my down stairs bathroom and I always find myself spraying it. This isn’t really a fall scent but I love it just the same.  I noticed that I have been using this alot lately because its getting cold and icky out.

“Mischief’s in the air! A fruity, breezy blend of peach, watermelon, neroli and jasmine with air and aquatic notes. But the real star of this fragrance? Fresh, ripe bananas!”

As you can see you do get 8 items in the box that are all deluxe sample sized. You are probably thinking that this box is expensive for what you get but let me just say that yes its deluxe sized samples but they are completely full no half empty bottles or containers. They are all hand made and I think that says alot about this company and they have the best customer service. Plus don’t forget you do get a $10 off future order coupon in each and every box. Plus you know you will get many uses out of the items and that its not all one use only.

For me I love this kind of subscription so I will always continue to subscribe. Its nice to get to try out the new scents of the season.

Have you tried this yet?
