Fortune Cookie Soap is easily one of my favorite companies, or at least that’s what my PayPal account tells me. An indie bath and body company based out of Oklahoma, Fortune Cookie Soap is run by husband/wife team Justin and Shannon Prokop and their staff of “Soap Fairies.” All items are made by hand in Oklahoma, are Leaping Bunny certified, and are paraben-free as well. Many of their collections are fandom influenced, so if you’ve ever wanted to smell like an Avenger or a Jedi Knight, they’re the place to go to.
One of their fans favorite items is the yearly Halloween Box. This year’s 2019 Halloween Box “FCS and Thrill” contains 12 mostly full size products in all-new scents inspired by a selection of popular Netflix horror shows. The boxes retail for $50 if you live in the US and $75 for international buyers (shipping included in the price). The boxes contain over $150 worth of products, so they’re a great way to sample a selection of the company’s offerings. A $10 discount code for a future order will also be mailed out to all purchasers once the box ships. International boxes will ship out the week of September 23rd and domestic boxes ship out the week of October 1st. The boxes are a pre-order item that will be available from now until August 30th, 12 PM CST.
So what comes in the box? The exact items are going to be surprise, but buyers can expect the box to contain a mix of bath, body, and home products. While the items are a mystery, I do have the scent list to share with you. WARNING: If you proceed, there are spoilers for the scents and fandoms featured in the box.
The Fortune Cookie Soap scent descriptions are always creative and fun. I always feel like they are fans of the fandom, and not just tossing a name on a product. Every so often there is a scent note like “mysterious elements” or “human flesh” that tends to be creative wording for something else. If you have scent sensitivity concerns, you can contact them through the customer service pop-up via their website to confirm that the creative wording isn’t covering up something you’ll have a reaction to. The appropriately creepy and ghoulish scent descriptions are as follows:
SPECIAL DIET – Cater to your special diet with scents of soft jasmine, strawberry, sugared cantalope, and banana all wrapped up with a base note of human flesh.
WE ARE THE WEIRDOS – Welcome to the witching hour. Exorcise your rites and embrace the fact you are NOT normal with a product that smells like red apples and melon, a touch of lily with a base of dark amber, and vanilla. The perfect scent combo to connect with the mystical forces.
RELAX… IT’S ONLY MAGIC – Once you’ve spent a big chunk of your life being a monster, relax and realize that you aren’t. Cast a spell and relax with scents of sweet tea, sumac, and clove.
NOT TODAY, MADAME SATAN – This product shall restore you to your full witch abilities. So now, my dear, you have both power and freedom. And may you never give up either again with scents of gentle orange blossom, honey, earthy thyme, and black magic incense.
ACADEMY OF THE UNSEEN ARTS – There is never a bad time to cast a spell and sometimes you’ll just wish you could cast a spell to cover up some rotten scent spirits that may be lingering in your home. Let the bewitching combination of saffron, tonka bean, ginger, and white currant cast the foul scents aside.
SOMETHING WICCA THIS WAY COMES – Kick evil dry skin’s ass everyday with a product that is totally a charmed one itself with scents of vanilla orchid, sandalwood, and patchouli. Nothing is stronger than your bond with this hydrate me.
GINGERDEAD – We’ve put our own sinister twist on this product… creamy vanilla magically blended with a bit of clove, a touch of cinnamon, warm buttery caramel, and nuts. But don’t tell anyone our secret. Because snitches get gutted and sacrificed to Anubis.
FALLIN1 – We’ve been concocting scents for a long time and we know how to make them so good—they’re evil. Trust us, we’re your guardian devil. It will not end well when you run out of the scents of spiced apples soaked in bourbon, lemongrass, and cashmere.
DARK PASSENGER – When the uncontrollable urge to kill takes over, the only thing to do it take out the Driver with scents of sweet and creamy lucuma, maple, and mango.
CAN YOU SPARE A BRAIN – Procuring brains is kind of a massive undertaking, so we did you a favor and provided one for you with scents of roots, spices, and of course mysterious elements.
MY BRIDE MUST BE BEAUTIFUL – Like all beautiful things, this scent is poisonous to match its mate with scents of vanilla wedding cake, coral berry, and lychee compote topped with a dusting of raw sugar.
DOPPELGANGER – Powerful, mystical, and naturally recurring, this product promotes younger looking skin, improves skin tone and texture, but beware: the scent blend of golden amber, musk, and sparkling citrus violates the natural law… so Nature found a balance with this product by creating mortal shadow selves.
