After a few days trying to find any reviews on these two shaving soaps, the skys opened up and I gave a big "D'Oh!" ask the people on the Nook, dummy. Any experiences to share would be greatly appreciated.

I have Antiga Barbearia de Bairro and I like it a lot. Lathers well and the scent is awesome. Nothing like any of the other soaps I have tried, and I can say I have tried many Smile. Having said that I don't know how to describe the scent. Something towards barbershop, if that helps. Really pleasant.

Antiga is excellent. Love the cream. Possibly the best performing cream I've ever tried. Can't wait to get the hard soap.

What is the BEST source for Antiga Barbearia?
I know that Old Town Shaving carries it, but is (are there) other sources?
And can a sample be obtained somewhere?

The soap is pretty high quality. I believe t is made by Castelbel which also makes Portus Cale soap. I prefer Barbearia scent better. I think the creams are also excellent, but the scent is not similar to the soap.
Comes is a nice glass jar, similar to MdC but I think it looks nicer.

Thank you! It is sold by nanbantrader on ebay, BUT you can deal with Carlos direct via email, and he will give you a small discount, as well as a better shipping cost, especially for multiple items. I have bought from previously and he is very good to deal with, AND a nice guy!

Is there a difference between the expensive Antica Barbieria Colla soaps sold by Old Town Shaving and the cheaper soaps sold on ebay called Antiga Barbearia de Bairro" - Deluxe Razor Shaving Soap (Made by Castelbel in Portugal)? Notice the different spelling of the two products, as well as the rest of the product name(s).

They are completely different products. Antica Barbieria Colla is made in Italy. Antiga Barbearia de Bairro is made in Portugal.
