Had a container of Blue, but sold it because I could not get used to the scent.

I also gave my Blu away to a family member because I just couldn't get into the scent. Looking forward to trying the green especially because I hear it's the most subdued of the 3

I'll interject here. I found the Verde to be an almost cloying cologne-like scent. Sold my pot before I even tried it.

You were right. Phenominal soap just can't handle the strong scents of any of them. Had to sell

I just hate it when the stuff I want is spread out over two or three different retailers….which means double or triple shipping
for me.

Does anyone know a place that sells both Pannacrema and Saponificio V?

I have Rossa and the scent is perfectly balanced not at all overwhelming. Is it the soap or my nose playing tricks?

I'd agree with some that the Verde's scent is lighter (and brighter) than the Rossa and Blu though I love them all.  Have only shaved with the Blu so far... wonderful lather and scent.

This is the case where the YMMV is absolutely true. I find the Verde's scent rather delicate and refreshing.

Received my pot of Verde from Connaught yesterday. 

My 70th anniversary SV soap smells stronger.

Had to stick my nose into the pot and got a whiff of what smelled like a combo of Vetiver and Pepper (which could also be the bay leaf)

Not sure if I love this scent but I certainly don't mind it. Maybe it opens up more when lathered. I really want to smell the grape fruit, rose and 
musk.

I've got all three, although I've only used Verde two or three times. For me, it's a fleeting acquatic scent, not unpleasant but sort of like the Axe my then teenage son used to wear when he didn't feel like taking a shower. I'm saving it for spring/summer which, here in Seattle, seems a long way off. I love Rosso and Blu.

I own all 3.
I like them all.
Verde is the mildest of them and it has the most mainstream scent yet still a very good scent but Rossa and Blue are a step up in scent composition.

I agree on Blu and Rossa having a better scent composition than Verde even though I do not care for all 3 scents.

I lathered up with the Verde yesterday and got a very nice shave…but somehow the lather was not as fluffy and abundant as what i get from SV. 
I am pretty sure I didnt use a lot of water and I loaded the brush for almost a minute. 

Will need to try again….maybe it needs some blooming, as per SV soaps.

With all due respect, I've used hundreds of soaps and none of them "needed" to be bloomed, including SV. As well, visuals and performance are not always positively correlated.
How was the shave and after?

My experience with the Nuavias (I have Rossa and Verde) is always excellent. It lathers beautifully, provides exceptional glide and protection, and the post-shave effect is second to none.

I bloomed the Verde a little bit and it lathered up really well. Lather felt good and plentiful on the face this time around,  and a bbs was achieved without any nicks.

I think my SV soap still edges out the Verde in terms of overall performance and post shave feel. 

Have read that some use the left over lather as a face wash and that doubles as an after shave. 

However I love after shave balms and finished off with some SV 70th anniversary stuff.

Nuavia lathers upon the slightest touch of a wet brush, not sure how you had a problem? SV is also a great soap but I find Nuavia to be in a different league

I'm looking to try some of the verde.  I have the rosso and blu.  I prefer the rosso.  I may part with the blue for a pot of the verde.

I did the same - let the Blu go and purchased a container of Verde. Absolutely happy with it.
