**ONE OF THE PRODUCT NAMES IS A GAME OF THRONES SPOILER SO IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO SEE IT THAN WATCH FOR THE SPOILER ALERT LATER ON IN THE POST**
I absolutely love Game of Thrones so I was over the moon excited to get this collection in the mail. Unfortunately, this particular order was not a problem free ordeal for me but I am happy with how things went.
When I received my package, the bottle of linen spray which is made of glass had broken and drenched everything. This meant that the labels had been ruined and covered everything with the dark coloured ink that had run. Also, everything that came in a bag was mostly dissolved. It was a pretty big mess and I was sad about it.
I emailed their customer service and heard back within a couple of hours. One thing that I can never praise enough is the customer service at FCS. They are absolutely amazing and they work so hard to make sure that everyone is happy! They sent out a replacement order and here it is!
Unfortunately, the linen spray bottle broke again. I know this isn’t their fault, but I am still a little sad because I really was looking forward to the spray. I think that the breaking is a combination of rough postal workers and this horribly cold weather. Cold weather and liquid filled glass bottles don’t mix well. Fortunately, they had packaged it in it’s own bag so it didn’t ruin things. My Mist Me spray did leak over some things but it just made the packaging sticky, nothing was wrecked.
Although I am sad not to have the linen spray, I am happy to have everything else so I am still happy with this order! Alright, after that whole preface, let’s see what we got!
“Hodor, Hodor, Hodor” Steam Me Up Scotty!
Hodor hodor hodor hodor hodor hodor. Hodor hodor hodor hodor hodor hodor hodor, hodor hodor. Hodor hodor hodor. Hodor hodor hodor hodor, hodor hodor hodor hodor hodor. Hodor hodor hodor hodor, hodor hodor. Hodor hodor hodor: Hodor. Hodor. Hodor Hodor. HODOR! Translation: This earthy blend of bright bergamot and fresh tomato has a quiet innocence just like the gentle giant himself.
I absolutely love the smell of these! Lately, I have been so into garden green kind of smells because they are so fresh. These make me feel like I have my face right up against a tomato plant and I love it. I tried one in the shower and didn’t find it put off any steam really so I will have to experiment to find the best way to use them.
“Iron Islands” OCD Hand Sanitizer
It’s a nice place to visit (we guess)…but we sure wouldn’t want to live there! Tender notes of water lily and apple blossom dance on top of fresh waters, ozone, and salty sea spray, rounded out by notes of sweet sun-weathered sandalwood with soft bergamot.
This scent sounds an awful lot like the Hook scent that I have been wanting to try so badly! I think it is a lovely scent, like a day at the beach. Very fresh! I’m not sure if you can tell from the picture or not but this hand sanitizer is super glittery. Fortunately, only a tiny bit is actually noticeable once it’s on your hands. I was a little worried that I would just have glitter hands.
“Joffrey Dies at the End” Bath Truffle
I don’t always die, but when I finally do (after four excruciating seasons) millions of people cheer and celebrate. A decadent buttery pastry filled with rich peppermint infused strawberries and dolloped with a touch of freshly whipped cream.
Sorry, I had to space that out because I hate when there are spoiler alerts so I want to protect as many of you as I can if you aren’t all caught up! This is such a cute design for a product! I am really liking the scent of this! I would say that the strawberry is the scent that comes across most clearly for me with just a hint of peppermint. I am really interested to see how this one works. The white portion of it is like a bath fizzy and the purple middle part is like a bath melt. Very cool!
“Keep it in the Family” Perfume Oil
Cersei and Jaime…Still a better love story than that Vampire series…A fragrance as feminine, cultured, elegant, and powerful as the Queen Regent herself: a stunning bouquet of sensual burgundy roses, carnations, and white florals with nuances of burgundy wine, sandalwood, and a hint of musk.
I’m not sure how I feel about this one to be honest. I tend to prefer florals that are fresher and on the fruitier side. Scents such as Belle and Inner Goddess are ones that are more my kind of floral. I find this floral to be more musky and powdery which isn’t my particular favourite. I will definitely use it but I have other perfume oils that I prefer.
“Kingslayer” Bar Soap
A wealthy knight like Ser Jaime could have any woman he wants.. so why…??? A spicy blend of cinnamon and clove with warm bayberry, pine, sweet citrus and a touch of fresh green grass.
My first bar of this had no real pattern on it, it was just grey mush so I am so excited to have one with this beautiful design on it. In case it is hard to tell, the top has a crown on it and it is meant to look like it is splattered with blood. Very cool! I quite like the scent of this one although I’m having a hard time picking out a particular scent. I would say it is woodsy and spicy although I’m pretty bad at picking out scents so who knows.
“Moon Door” Linen Spray
Lysa Arryn calls it, “an elegant solution to the problem of administering juctice,” we call it, “a heck of a wild ride to Sleepy Town.” Refined lavender and heavenly hydrangea with hints of juicy pear.
This is the one that broke on me so I actually don’t have it. From the scent that was covering both of my packages, I would say that I would really love this one! I love spraying scents onto my pillow before I go to sleep and with lavender in this one, I think it would have been great! I’m sad but there are worse things that could happen so it’s okay.
“Mother of Dragons” Whipped Cream
When I grow up, I wanna be naked, fireproof, and covered in dragons, too! Creamy french vanilla soy milk, sweet florals, and a nutty almond base.
This whipped cream is a beautiful peachy orange colour that I just love! I am really enjoying the scent of this one. I know that a lot of people have said they smell mostly florals but for me I would say it’s an equal mix of florals with a sweet creamy scent. I really like this one! Although it’s not hard to please me, I haven’t found a whipped cream that I haven’t enjoyed yet.
“Needle” Sugar Scrub
First lesson: Stick them with the pointy end. Okay…but where??? Herbaceous cilantro, tart lemons, and lush green base notes of fresh grass and green tea leaves.
This is one of my favourites from this collection, if not the overall favourite. I LOVE this one. Like I said before, I am into garden green scents right now and this one is perfect! I wish I could have this scent in a whipped cream so I could just smell like it all the time. Not only does it smell amazing, but this formula is phenomenal. I had never tried a sugar scrub from FCS before and I am so glad that I have now! Other sugar scrubs I’ve used had been oily but this is almost like a mousse kind of consistency. I just love it!
“No Middle Ground” Hydrate Me
Win… or die. That’s a little harsh… can’t the loser just buy the brews? Sheesh! A distinctive blend of bergamot, intoxicating gardenia, fresh eucalyptus leaves and lavender flowers wrapped in neroli, and tea leaves.
This is a nice, fresh scent that is mostly herbal with a hint of citrus. There is an overspray of glitter on this which I don’t love for a hydrate me but I’m sure it can be wiped off!
“Red Woman” Fortune Cookie Soap
We’re not quite sure who fathered the scary smoke baby that spewed forth from her lady bits, but one thing’s for certain…whoever he is, he’s braver than we are! Sensual amber, sparkling citrus, and rich sandalwood blended with cool waters and hints of patchouli.
I like this scent way more than I thought I was going to! I thought it would be really dark but I find that the citrus comes out and brightens it all up. Also, the design of this soap is beautiful! The flames look so nice and really suits the theme/description of this one.
“Take the Black” Shampoo & Conditioner Combo Bar
A 2-in-one solution for our favourite crow’s luscious locks, scented with a blend of leather and amber as dead-sexy as Jon Snow himself.
I hadn’t tried any of the solid shampoo or conditioner bars before this one. This is the first time FCS has made a combo bar which is pretty interesting. I’m not sure how I feel about the actual product itself which I hate to say. I have tried it out for a bit and I’m not sure if works the best for my hair. However, I have read in the fan group that people have been using it for their pets so I may try this out on Tucker sometime. As for the scent, it is a masculine scent for sure but I was afraid I wouldn’t like it and I don’t mind it.
“The Hound” Wax Tart
“I understand that if any more words come pouring out your mouth, I’m gonna have to eat every chicken in this room.” Yeah, we’re gonna be quiet now… This exotic earthy fragrance combines top notes of tarragon, vanilla bean, and sandalwood with honey, caramel, amber and a beautiful woody musk with subtle hints of patchouli.
I haven’t melted this in my warmer yet, just smelled it in the container. I kind of like this one, I think it’s a nice wintery scent. To me this one is a woodsy caramel which I like. I will be interested to see what the throw of this scent is.
“The Imp” Mist Me?
“I am the god of tits and wine.” Yep…impin’ ain’t easy. A rich blend of fresh black cherries, white wine, mahogany and teak woods, and a spicy note of freshly grated black pepper.
I find the scent of this one fairly subtle but I like it! I love that they made the bottle look like a wine bottle, perfect for Tyrion! I think they have improved the actual nozzle too because this mist is nice and fine which I really like! I’m super happy with this one.
“Valyrian Steel” Body Wash
We heard of a man who had a razor made of this stuff… he cut off his head trying to shave! A blend of Italian bergamot, yuzu, fresh Meyer lemon and verbena perfectly blended with notes of olive leaf and sweet florals, finished with faint notes of patchouli, white musk, and cedarwood.
I was hoping this would be a nice citrusy scent but it is definitely filled with the deeper scents. I would say this is a pretty good unisex scent. I really enjoy the body washes from FCS so I look forward to using this!
“White Walker” Lip Scrub
So…who’s the super scary “Darth Maul meets Daiquiri Ice” dude? Mmmmm…tingly mint!
This is just a straight up minty lip scrub. Definitely nothing wrong with that, and nice for winter! I love the blue that they used for this scrub, it helps me pretend I’m in the Caribbean instead of super cold Ontario.
“You Know Nothing” Bath Powder
Apparently he knew more than we thought he did…twice! Warm bonfires at dusk, wind-blown leaves, charred pine and cedar accented with roasted marshmallows, brown sugar, and a hint of fresh earth.
I love this! The scent description for this one reminded me of a more nighttime version of Roy G. Biv which I loved! There is a sweet scent to this that must be the marshmallows and sugar but it is almost a tart sweet. I am aware that that doesn’t make any sense. I don’t find the scent comes across too much when it’s actually in the water, but maybe I didn’t use enough. I do love smelling this in the jar though!
“Unsullied” Shower Oil
The few thousand, the proud, the Unsullied. A warm arid blend of patchouli, sandalwood, and citrus with juicy notes of white peach and red mango.
I didn’t even know that shower oils were a thing but the concept really appeals to me. I haven’t tried this out yet but I’m interested to see if dries quickly or if you just feel oily for a little while. Smelling it in the bottle, I don’t smell any fruit at all. It is really just the patchouli and sandalwood which is a bummer. I was hoping it would pretty much only smell like peach and mango. However, you never know what it will smell like on your skin so we will see once I try this if it changes at all!
“What Happens Behind the Wall, Stays Behind the Wall” Solid Bubble Bath
As soon as one man builds a wall, another immediately wants to know what’s behind it. Or pee on it. Men do that, right? An icy mix of spearmint, menthol, woodland moss, and lemon zest with notes of lime, lavender, and fresh water.
This bubble bar is absolutely huge! They did a good job decorating these, you can even see the little pee spot on the end. I think that I get mostly mint and citrus when I smell this one which is nice! I think this scent would be nice if you are feeling a little congested with a cold. There is glitter all throughout this one it looks like so my bath may need a little wipe down afterwards!
“Oathkeeper” Bath Fizzy
This was a bonus product that you could only get if you ordered the full collection within the first 12 hours of sale. We never did receive a scent description of this one but we were told that it is a fresh and clean scent. This is definitely true, it is nice and fresh and I absolutely love it. I am so terrible at picking out scents but I would say it reminds me of a sweet pea kind of scent but I am probably way off.
I also got a couple of bonus products with this order which is always very exciting! The first product I got is the Roy G. Biv Fortune Cookie Soap. I remember seeing this one when it was released because it is so beautiful! The other product I got was the Hair Flip OCD Hand Sanitizer which is a great scent as well. Very exciting!
I am so happy with my order. I think that this is a great collection and they did such a great job with the theme. It is too bad about the shipping issues but things like that happen so it’s alright.
