Now that they all exist w/ matching A/S's to boot! I'm curious what people think of the "X" line of products? I know there's new and old formulas of XXX, two diff. kinds of splash(Fine & RR) for XXX, also XX is non tallow base and includes argan oil, One X has tallow and menthol; So include everything as I'm sure most of us have a mix of new/old styles, diff. batches, diff. tasted in ingredients between X's.I can simply say I enjoy them all, and like having the matching A/s's especially.

I think the latest XXX (black tub) smells better than the previous (white tub)...

FINE XXX is very very close scent wise to the straight RR version recently released. The RR version is a tad larger bottle for less money, but unfortunately has less menthol than the FINE version. I suppose you could add as much menthol crystal as you like to either version, and I've actually been told that people even menthol spike the original FINE XXX version because it is considered gentle menthol compared to other mentholated A/S's.

I recently received the new XXX shaving soap with tallow (on LORDBISHOP's recommendation!) It smells great, and performs just as well. Seems to me a soft soap, almost a croap. Already one of my favorites. It really punches above its weight in terms of quality, given the price. I probably will give the aftershave a go later on.


Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, if he gets angry, you're a mile away - and you have his shoes.

I'm debating to buy the RR AS or one of the Fine. There's so much pleasing items I yearn for in this hobby

Good Man! Mark I'm glad your enjoying XXX, the splash sure does go nicely in this warm weather...the XXX balm(milk) is nice too, leaves a natural smooth skin feel, with total absorption. It very quickly alleviates dry skin and lasts.

I think they are all fantastic, but to me the One X is in a different class scent wise. The pick of the litter IMO.

I would love to try the XXX soap/cream, but it's not available anywhere that I can find.

I own all the ADP fragrances - and find them pretty nice scents.

My favorite is Mandorlo di Sicilia, but making a shaving cream/soap in this scent would be like reinventing the wheel as it smells of almonds and marzipan, like Cella, P160 and many other almond scented creams/soaps. Though Mandorlo di Sicilia is in a class of its own. Still can't find the ADP Colonia

Is it just me or is the 2nd version XXX (white tub) different than the 3rd Version (recent-black tub) ?
