If you want fall scents, check out Haus of Gloi on August 24th. I might be dumping FCS after this box because HoG is much more my hippie-earthy-seasonal speed. FCS seems overly sweet foody-oriented for me. The down side is that there's no subscription or discount. The up side is that you get to order exactly what you want. I got five two-ounce jars of scrubs and body butters plus a perfume oil sample for under $25 including shipping.

thanks! I will do that :) I have bookmarked their site and created an account. Do they send out newsletters letting folks know that their new line has arrived?

I'm not sure, but I actually put it on my calendar and keep checking Facebook for advance info. I'll probably post the lineup in the indies thread as soon as it's released!

I'm excited about this box's theme! I'm sure they'll be able to work in some fall scents with the theme. Like maybe

the fortune cookie could be candy apple scented because of the color? Or apple cider. Something like that.

I feel like they might go more Halloween scents than typical pumpkin spice scents with this one, but we'll see.

Someone from FCS already spoiled the fall theme and one of the products/scents in a FCS FB group. I posted the info in the summer thread but it should probably go in here under a spoiler. I'll look for the pic when I'm not on mobile.

The past boxes have all been oriented towards their season of release even if there is some other theme also associated with the box, like Candy Land or Nightmare Before Christmas.

 

 

Plus, it's not like Wizard of Oz is already associated with specific scents or anything like that. I'm guessing it will be Oz related names with fall related scents. Of course, I could be wrong, but it would fit their pattern

@ - I hope so. I really want fall scented products. Perhaps there will be

 

 

poppies (lol), but I hope there will be some apple scents - from that scene where Dorothy is picking apples from the tree

Sooo probably a dumb question but if I got charged May 8th for my Summer box, will I get charged August 8th for the Fall box?

Fall theme:

 

 

 

The owner captioned a photo in the FCS fan group with the phrase "wicked cute" and then said that was a clue to the fall theme.  Later she posted this:

Exactly. I think that they can still do a specific theme but also keep some of the scents more "fall" oriented. I won't be totally disappointed if they don't, because I go WAY overboard on Fall scents anyway lol. Bath and Body Works is my best friend for the entire Fall season haha :)

@@PeridotCricket here is a review (not mine) from last year

http://www.vampyvarnish.com/2013/09/fortune-cookie-soap-box-fall-2013

 

 

I started with the Winter box as well, and it was because of the fall scents in 2013 that I was hoping for a really great fall scented box this time around.  Bananas - isn't fall. 

I agree ... bananas isn't Fall.

On top of bananas not being fall, the whole concept seems more appropriate for a holiday box! I remember that The Wizard of Oz was always shown every year at Christmastime when I was a kid. Fall is *way* too early!

I saw the first post on this thread and pretty much yelled OH MY GOD!!! , at work.  I LOVE this theme!!!!!!   :D

I liked some parts of the summer box but wasn't sure if I should stay subscribed but now I'm sooooo glad I did.  I was totally obsessed with this movie as a kid.  The first spoiler already makes the box for me.  I'm going to go sit in a quiet place until I can calm down now.  I'm afraid if I don't I will start dancing down halls and hugging strangers.

AHAHA I felt the same way! While I'm a HUGEEEE fan of fall scents (give me all the baked goods scented candles in the world!) I am also a ridiculously huge fan of Judy Garland and The Wizard of Oz. SO. EXCITE. :D

I subbed.. Hopefully, the scents will be fall fragrances. Last year's fall box looks awesome on their website.. Now, if those red soaps had been in the shape of ruby slippers, that would have been SUPER AMAZING- but also contrary to their " fortune cookie' shape, of course. :)
Now I can't get the image of sparkling ruby slipper soaps out of my head, ha ha.

I can't wait! This will be my first FCS box, and I have to admit, I'm not sad I missed out on the Summer box. The whole Candyland line sounded too sweet smelling for my tastes. To me, it sounds like maybe some of the box will be fall scent themed, and some won't. Which I don't mind, and I actually like 

banana scents

so this should be a good box for me!

SO EXCITED FOR THIS BOX. Love the theme! :) 

 

Also getting pumped for Christmas in July! I've been holding off on ordering some things & I'm hoping I can shop quick enough to get them on sale. Anyone know if you can get your cart ready ahead of time, or do they clear them? Might have to just write everything down so I can remember all the things I want to get!

Excited for Christmas in July too!! Do we know any details about when the sale goes live or what will be on sale? I'm literally making a payment on my Bill Me Later account today so I have enough credit available for a $100 no payments for 6 months purchase.

    • Anxiety won’t make you ugly, but it can do something even more awful: it will poison your mental health slowly. I would recommend not to waist time and consult a professional ASAP (mine just prescribed me cbd oil which I used with special oil cartridge vaporizer and coped with this disease easily).

    • Thank you very much for the article. I'm also interested in fashion and I'm interested in the history of fashion. I often find interesting articles on the Internet. Jeans have long been a very necessary part of our everyday clothes. Now there are many different styles of jeans that will underline any figure. This article  https://stylejeanswear.com/what-is-cowboy-cut-jeans/ has a lot of interesting information about cowboy jeans. I like the fact that the article describes what type of figure they are more suitable. It seems to me that it may be interesting to you too.

    • To be honest, this is a very sensitive situation. You definitely need to talk to your uncle and ask him directly about his feelings. I prefer unusual Dating sites and applications and therefore communicate with people who have a bdsm fetish.
