Fortune Cookie Soap Summer Box 2017

Fortune Cookie Soap A Pirates Life For Me 2017 Summer Soap Box should be arriving your way soon, if you don't have it already! If you've never heard of the soap box, Fortune Cookie Soap is a company out of Tulsa, OK that does a seasonal soap box comprised of 8 to 10 samples of bath and body product samples. The subscription also comes with a $10 code, which a lot of us use towards the purchase of full size goodies at launch night*.

Fortune Cookie Soap creates unique products, in clever themes, you won't find in any store. This summer, Fortune Cookie Soap's summer collection was inspired by the latest "Pirates of the Caribbean" film, Dead Men Tell No Tales. I am absolutely OBSESSED with the film series, and of course Johnny Depp, so I'm extra excited for this one. The collection features a lot of pirate themed scents that are sure to leave you wanting to join their pirate crew. Arrr matey!
Let's dig in! 

Walk the Plank-OCD Hand Sanitizer (Oak aged bourbon, sugar cane, pomelo, tobacco, mandarin zest )This scent smells really familiar, but I can't put my finger on it! It's a really complex scent though, and I think bourbon is the top note that comes through for me. COME THROUGH Bourbon COME THROUGH!  
Monkey Business-Whipped Cream (Lemon, pineapple, banana almond cake)
If you are a foody/fruit scent lover, you're going to die! This whipped cream smells good enough to eat!

Bring Me That Horizon-Fortune Cookie Soap (Cactus pear, ghost flowers, water lilies, sea mist, and warm sand)
This scent is one of my favorites of the box. It's really beachy and along the same lines of Iron Islands/Once A Beach, Always A Beach.

Mermaid Tears-Shimmer perfume oil (Sugar cane, morning dew) This smells really summery and citrusy. It's not normally a scent I would like, but I like this one!

Black Pearl-Exfoliating Body Wash (Tropical pineapple, pink pepper, Cuban tobacco, suede, peony, jasmine)
I don't know about this scent. It smells really odd to me, but maybe once I try it some of the scents will peek through.  
Parlay-Lip scrub (Lime, coconut)
I LOVE this scent. The lime and coconut marry together perfectly. SOOOO good.  

Calypso-Solid Foot scrub (Peach blossom, berry, floral hearts, amber, vanilla musk, fig)
Mine arrived pretty mushy, but I'm going to try to let it set back up in the fridge. It's a pretty, floralish scent that's very complex. 

Aqua De Vida-Facial cleansing oil (Coconut, rum)
I don't think I understand how the whole "remove oil with oil" business works, but the scent is really light and pleasant! 

No scents in this box stick out to me as a front runner, but there are a lot I like, such as Walk The Plank, Bring Me The Horizon, Mermaid Tears, and Parlay. Remember once this collection launches, May 26th at 6pm CST on the Facebook page, you can get all of these scents and most of the products. 
Plus....I'LL BE THERE! That's right cupcakes, you will see me live at the Facebook launch this time. AHH, I can't wait. I'm going to blog as much as I'm allowed so check back!
Until then-

Please note this box was sent to me free of charge for my honest review. These opinions are 100% my own. 


  1. Oh how exciting! It will be awesome to see you!

    1. Aww thanks dear. I'm really excited and nervous!

  2. Nice review! I'm excited for the launch party this week, they're always fun! It's so exciting that you'll actually get to be there!
    These scents were kinda hit or miss for me. You're right, nothing really stands out. I don't like the ones with tobacco in them .. but I know a lot of people are enjoying the more unisex style scents.
    I have no clue what to think of Mermaid Tears, I wish there was more of a scent description for it, b/c I could swear if smell some kind of citrus, but idk.
    I think my favorites may be a ring Me the Horizon & Calypso, but it's difficult to smell it in the mushy foot scrub. Or perhaps Aqua De Vida or Parley, if they end up translating well as other products, I love coconut scents!

    1. Thanks lady! I'm excited to smell the scents in different products.

  3. I wonder if the sugar cane note is really maybe inspired by Rainforest Sugarcane from BBW? That would explain the citrus.......
    So far, none of these scents (just reading the descriptions, I didn't get a box this time around) stand out to me, really.

  4. I too am loving the Mermaid Tears perfume, and like you, it's not a type of scent I'd typically like! Something about it, though...perhaps it's that Spring is taking so long to actually SPRING this year here in New England that it's giving me a taste of summer that I desperately need! Great review!
