Hi guys,

I've recently purchased the Saponificio Varesino 70th anniversary special soap, which is a superb performer.  I'm now interested in their other offerings. 

Can anyone share their experiences and scent descriptions of others you may have in your den, or have used previously?  I've heard great things about Manna di Scilia, can someone tell me if it smells like Tabac?  What is Dolomiti like? 

Cheers guys

Dolomiti is a nice light citrus scent for me. Manna does not smell like tabac but could be considered in the same vein IMO. Classic type of scent if that helps. My personal favorites are the felce, 70th and Asylum colonia.

I own Dolomiti, Felca, Manna, 70 and Tundra.

My fav is hard to pick, love them all, but Tundra probably takes the cake.

The one in my rotation is the 70th Anniversary . Bought Tundra, and it smells fantastic, and I think it will perform like 70th

I would say my favorite scent (performance not involved) is a tie between 70th and Colonia. Very similar, both have med-strong scent strength but the Colonia is more bright and almost ADP like and 70th is in the same boat, a bit more oceanic and aquatic mixed with the Colonia body.

Dolomiti is very soap like, citrus herbal scent that is pleasant but not that exciting.

Manna is interesting and to my nose, a dark citrus, wood and musk scent. More of a manly scent.

Flying Mango is nice, very unique and interesting. There are days that I like it and days I dont. The balsamic end of it is a bit sharp and unrefined but still has a good mix of scents.

Tundra Artica is definitely a keeper. It has a nice big scent although not in your face. My take is it's a nutty, floral, wood scent. It's very unique.

I've only tried two, Manna and Felce Aromatica and the latter is my favorite.  Very stout.

Look in the Vendor News section of TSN, they have the scent tree.

Anyone mind if I ask about Tundra?  I've heard Dolomiti had a light scent so I'm going to avoid it but I was wondering what Tundra is like and if it has a stout scent? I might look at the Colognia one as well.
