I'm looking to get either boellis panama or ABC shave cream. However I can't decide on which and I don't need 2 almost soaps around. Any idea on which I should go with ?

They are both top notch performers so you really can't go wrong with either. I prefer the ABC because the scent is a bit less pronounced then the PB 1924.

Haven't shaved with either although I have some ABC cream soap. It does indeed smell very nice with the uncountable amount of almond soap, especially Italian made. Can I offer another budget friendly almond soap? Valobra soft soap in the box.

Valobra Classic, Boellis, ABC cream or saponeria artigiana, all of them are top of the tops.

I have Boellis and ABC, and both are excellent performers. Of the two, my preference would be for Boellis, but neither will disappoint.

The only inconvenience of Boellis is one ingredient : Tetrasodium EDTA

For me, ABC cream is tops, followed closely by Boellis and Valobra soft almond (mini-brick).  I've also tried 3P, RR-ABCBA, & Cella but they don't compare to my top-3.

I agree with Dave & Mr Smartepants that ABC cream (croap) is tops.

For a more affordable "blind" purchase and closer to home, don't overlook CRSW Almond.

To me, ABC, PB1924, Valobra etc. are all similar in scent and performance.  How much do they differ in performance -- to a degree yes but is it discernible not so sure.  They all contain benzaldehyde for the almond or marzipan scent one of the simplest and cost effective fragrance compound.  IMHO it comes to value, presentation, shipping etc. to choose one among them.

I really like ABC soap. I find it fantastic in performance and scent and I don't really like almond scents.

I wanted to pick up crsw almond since I love crsw but almond is never in stock. Sounds like abc is the top vote here.
