Shaving with The Flying Mango

Flying Mango shaving soap is back! Today's shaving soap was introduced in 2015 and was supposed to be a limited edition made in Italy by Saponificio Varesino exclusively for BullGoose Shaving. It utilizes Saponificio Varesino's latest Beta 4.3 formula with added mango butter for superior skin conditioning.

The scent is complex. At first whiff, you get hints of tobacco leaves. The top note is citrusy and slightly balsamic, the body aromatic with a hint of floral and lavender while the base is woody and musky.

As you can see by the video this soap lathers pretty well gets right into the beard and provides wonderful coverage. The slickness and glide are above average and provide protection from irritation.

You can get this soap if you spend $38.50 for a 150g puck I don't remember spending that much for my tin but times have changed I'm afraid. You can head over to and pick up one for yourself.

Also in this video, I chat about two movies I've watched one called Abcence of Malaise with Paul Newman and Sally Fields produced in the 80s and another on Prime Video called Saltburn. Saltburn is set in Oxford and Northamptonshire, England, it focuses on an Oxford University student who becomes fixated with a popular, aristocratic fellow student at his university, who later invites him to spend the summer at his eccentric family's estate. Absence of Malaise is about a prosecutor leaking to a Miami reporter that a liquor wholesaler is suspected in the murder of a union head, and the man's life begins to unravel.

Well that's all I have this week

As always be kind to one another
