I saw PannaCrema launched a new soap in their Nuavia line called Verde.  The scent is described as:

The top notes are fresh and aromatic:
  • Grapefruit
  • Bay Leaves
  • Rose
The middle notes are woody:
  • Cedarwood
  • Vetyver
  • Precious Wood
Base notes are Amber:
  • Amber
  • White Musk
  • Goldmoss
    It sounds pretty good so I picked up a couple of them thinking I'd pass one on to someone here.

Same thing with the crock?

Would like to be able to buy without the heavy, fragile container.

I'm just waiting for it to hit the US retailers to grab it along with the upcoming DFS Pure2O release.

A few thoughts.

I'll wait for the refill, but I'm 99% sure it won't hit the market until I won't have any soap left, which means never.

I really can't imagine the scent on that based on these notes. This one sounds more complex than the other two. The best I could do would be waiting for a Greek reseller to bring it in Greece, as it happened with the two Nuavia soaps I have.

I would never buy a soft soap during the summer, it would be delivered even softer and I'd have to put it in the fridge or leave it open for days with probably no result. Why not waiting to buy it in autumn, since I already have dozens of soaps?

Overall, I'm not so excited about the scent on that, even though I have tried every Pannacrema offering the last two years. This one seems the least attractive option, in my opinion.

I will try it. I continue to be amazed by my blu and rossa every time I use them and anything in that line - I will be happy with. Living in Asia - I have resigned myself to high shipping and taxes on orders so I am jumping in and ordering from their site. Should be at least ten days until I receive

Looks like mine won't get here until next Thursday.  When it does arrive I will post my thoughts on scent and performance.

My Verde arrived this morning, I have already test lathered it and the performance seems to be the same as the other Nuavia soaps, I will shave with it later this evening.

Initial impressions - The scent is wonderful, i'm not the best at describing scents but out of the box the Verde smells crisp and clean, very refreshing and it seems to be much lighter than the Rossa and Blu, which in my opinion have a deeper and bolder scent profile, but when you lather Verde the scent really blossoms and gets stronger, it has a very uplifting tone which just makes you feel relaxed. 

The Verde smells very much like a high end EDT and is a very good summer scent however i still think the Blu is my favourite scent overall, followed by the Verde and then the Rossa. The Verde does have the weakest scent strength of the bunch.

Andy, thanks for the thorough description.  It sounds like the kind of scent that I might really like.

Wow, I thought the Blu & Rossa had weak scents.  I can't imagine it being weaker.  What has a stronger scent, the soap or the box? Biggrin

Biggrin  It's not incredibly weak, it does develop when you lather it but when you first open it, you almost have to stick your nose all the way into the jar to catch the scent. In contrast to the Blu, as soon as you lift the lid you get a whiff of the scent.

I bought one last wekk - will arrive tomorrow or so.........

Will continue to buy all the Nuavia's, because they are just so good performers for me and great scents and great presentation - all in one, price about the same as Martin de Candre, but better performance imho.

I agree, Nuavia presents the trifecta of great performance, scent and presentation!  It's great to see an additional scent!

In my humble opinion, no soap deserves 55 euros. I have both the Nuavias and bought them almost a year ago, when the price was 40 euros, an expensive but affordable price for many wet shavers. Now the price is ridiculous, sorry. I am not going to follow the hype this time, because I respect my money. During the last months, I tried some excellent performing soaps like CRSW and Savon de Volcans. Are they better performers than Nuavia soaps? Yes. Do I really need an overpriced soap to feed my ego? Not at all.
