Was going to buy a SP soap direct until I was hit by the $18 shipping!  Ooch!  I saw the SN post and pulled the trigger! 
Great Soap!  Great Lather!  Fantastic sent!  In the rotation to stay.
I know scent is subjective here (I don't like my Cella for the sent for instance).  Who else likes this one?  What others do you have?

The flying mango scent is eh for me but performance is great. I have their dolominti and the scent is amazing. Just ordered their 70th aniv soap that came out today hopefully will like the scent as I got hit with that 18$ shipping Sad

Here are some initial thoughts of the 'Flying Mango' in a similar thread, i have let it aerate for a while now so it doesn't smell as peppery as before, the scent is very subtle. I really like the soap now, definitely is an excellent performer, but i still prefer the Aromatic Fern for its amazing scent.

Flying Mango is the only SV with a pre distressed aluminum tin. You have to buy a separate wood container for the others. Manna is the scent winner, but Mango with it's tin and own unique scent is not to be sneezed at.

The original fern in a tin was also pre-distressed. The tin on the 70th anniversary appears much more substantial.

That would b awesome! I went thru the checkout and saw shipping and didn't order. I'd love for Phil to get some. If not I'll just pay the shipping.

My local post office performs package distressing free of charge.

To answer the OP, I've used the SV Flying Mango a couple of times and it's my favorite non-tallow soap.  Hell, I even like the smell.
