Saponificio Varesino Manna di Sicilia Shaving Soap (Beta 4.3)
Saponificio Varesino comesw through again with another winning shave soap. Manna di Sicilia has tobacco flower notes but I also detect leather and a warm spiciness that I cannot put my finger on. By all regards, it is an elegant and sophisticated scent. The performance is what you have come to expect from SV shave soap -excellent cushion and glide with superior skin conditioning qualities. This is another must have for shave soap aficionados.

SV Manna is amazing shaving soap, beautiful scent and rich lather. Fully recommended!
This is the second time I've bought this soap and, while expensive, I think it offers great value. It lasts forever and provides the most glide and cushion of any vegetable-based soap I've ever tried. It also leaves my face quite moisturized, again in contrast to many of the veggie soaps out there and is very easy to whip up into mounds of thick lather. I love the scent too which is subtle and quite hard to describe. If I had one wish it would be that the scent was a bit stronger actually and the puck does tend to lose it's wonderful smell as the months roll by. If you haven't tried soaps from these guys, give them a try. Don't be put off by the price tag...your reward will be months of effective and enjoyable shaves. Did I mention that the classic packaging is also amazing? :)
This was my first SV purchase, and I'm highly impressed. The scent is outstanding, not too strong or too mild for me. It was very easy to generate great lather from, gave me an excellent shave, and a very pleasant and moisturized post shave. SV will always have a place in my shave den.
very nice shave soap and at 69 years old I've tried a lot and now have about 25 different soaps on hand. nice rich lather slick good cushion and very nice fragrance
Outstanding shaving soap. Pleasant, moderate scent. Easy to load and lather. Good protection and glide. This is the first shaving soap I have used where I consistently get no nicks or weepers. Good post shave as well.
