FCS Wonderland Haul
I thought Fortune Cookie Soap couldn't do better than their Game of Thrones inspired collection, but they released an Alice in Wonderland collection! Check out these adorable products and read about each scent here.
Wednesday March 18 2015
I went a little crazy for Fortune Cookie Soap’s Winter Has Come collection last month and now they followed it up with a collection for something else I adore, Wonderland!
I ordered these items literally within minutes (yes, I’m crazy) of them going live on the website and some have since sold out, but you can read my thoughts on them and then keep an eye out for restocks! Let’s get into my haul by starting with the namesake products. They cost $3.99 to $4.25.
Almost Alice is the perfect Alice blue and adorned with a pretty butterfly (that needs to be removed before use.) Its “fresh green snap peas and juicy pears brighten this bouquet of sweet pea flowers, and freesia, sprinkled with ripe berries.”
Eat Me smells like the “scrumptious yellow cake” that made Alice grow large “with a fresh slathering of rich, creamy vanilla frosting, topped with fresh white pineapple slices and garnished with a sprig of blooming cilantro.” This is my favorite scent of the bunch. It kinds of reminds me of a scented toy from the 80s, but oddly I like that.
Who Are You? is inspired by the hookah caterpillar and is described as “a mysterious mixture of crisp, ripe, pear twisted with tart limes, vanilla orchid, and dash of raw cane sugar.”
Of course, I had to buy a Mad Hater inspired product even if it wasn’t the most exciting visually. Twisted Tea Party smells of “green tea with notes of sweet herbs, vanilla bean, cucumber, golden amber, and hints of neroli and geranium, stirred with a bright sprig of spearmint.” This is my least favorite scent of the collection.
If you weren’t a fan of the 2010 Alice in Wonderland movie in which the Mad Hater performed a silly dance, you might want to skip this one. Futterwacken is an interesting transparent soap with bright colored specks and the fragrance is “sun warmed lilies brightened with a splash of grapefruit and a breath of fresh air.” I definitely smell the grapefruit in this one.
The last fortune cookie shaped soap I got was It’s Only A Dream. I love the bright purple and pink color of this one. FCS describes this one as “calming verbena, lemongrass, calla lily, and citrus blended with leafy greens, ylang-ylang, rosewood, and ozone; with hints of soft musk and roses.” I notice mostly the leafy greens and ozone notes.
One of the fortune cookie soaps I skipped on was Off With Their Heads!, but only because I wanted this $6.99 bath bomb. It has lemon and orange fragrance with the smell of “a perfectly manicured garden of wild roses, violets, and star jasmine perfumed with romantic tones of bergamot and Egyptian musk.” For someone who doesn’t like floral scents, I surprisingly love this one!
I only have a shower, but you better believe I’m taking this over to my boyfriend’s house to use his tub. It results in a floating rose petal bath! If for some crazy reason, you don’t want floating petals in your tub, you can put it in pantyhose or one of FCS’s reusable muslin bags. I have one that I put the soaps in because their shape and small size is difficult to hold onto. The bags are also great for any broken soaps.
The only other fortune cookie soap that I didn’t buy from the Wonderland collection, was We’re All Mad Here because I wanted two larger products of the same scent. As I said in my Winter Has Come Haul, I love solid shampoo and conditioners. Unfortunately, the Jon Snow inspired combo bar smelled too masculine and I won’t personally be using it. So, I had to make up for that loss with the above girly, pink We’re All Mad Here Shampoo & Conditioner combo.
And I saved the best for last…We’re All Mad Here bar soap which was worth the $8.95 I spent. I just couldn’t resist this amazing, handmade Cheshire Cat creation! It’s so cute that I can’t even bring myself to use it until I use up all the other soaps from this collection. Just like the combo bar, this smells of “playful mint waters and natural leafy green notes perform a masterful balancing act with musky rich cedar wood.” I’m a fan of this scent as well.
FCS scents tend to be hit or miss with me because smelling through the internet isn’t a thing yet, but this collection didn’t disappoint. As I previously said, some of these goodies are currently sold out, but this company is usually decent about doing some restocks. Keep your eyes on the Wonderland collection here.
