Even MORE Favorite FCS Scents | Perfect for Upcoming CYO Whipped Cream, Body Milk and Aloe Me Event!

I think you know by now that I am obsessed with Fortune Cookie Soap. Every few months, FCS has special CYO (Create Your Own) events where they open up their entire scent catalog for customers to go crazy with. During these events you can mix your own scents using their base scent notes (up to three), mix together past favorite scents (up to three) from FCS’s Museum ( past collection’s scents that have been retired), or just get single scents from their museum that you can’t get anymore or were never released in the CYO product before. All of the available scents will be listed in a drop down menu on the CYO ordering page. This is an awesome chance to stock up on your favorites or to try scents that appeal to you that you might have missed out on!

FCS also has an option called “surprise me”. If you choose this option, FCS will custom blend you a scent based on your order/ scent types you have ordered in the past! I did this during the perfume oil CYO event in march, and received a scent called Cool Kid’s Pool, which was a very fruity and tropical scent!

The closest CYO event is for their Whipped Cream, Body Milk, and Aloe Mes, which will be held August 3rd-6th (ends at 10am PST). FCS’ whipped creams are whipped body butters that are extremely hydrating but not at all greasy, and the Aloe Mes are a mix of the whipped creams and a scented aloe gel. Aloe mes are perfect in the summer (store in the fridge for an extra cool treat) and I usually like to get them in fruity scents. Body Milk is a newer product that I have not tried yet, but it seems to be a more liquidy version of a body lotion.

I would suggest checking the products currently available in the CYO product, just to make sure you’re not paying the CYO price (usually $2 more) for no reason.  I haven’t listed scents that are currently available in whipped creams and aloe mes below, of those, I would recommend: Is Butter a Carb?, Sally, Mother of Dragons, and In The Loop.

Since I have quite an extensive FCS collection and I have been getting FCS boxes for years, I thought it would be helpful to list some of my favorite scents that might get overlooked when browsing through the museum. I have italicized the scent note(s) that stick out to me the most because it can be hard to get a sense of what the product will smell like when there are several different types of scents listed.
