This time I want to make a 3-some battle between 3 traditional shving soaps.

What's your personal choice - pick your own favorite amongst these 3 soaps !

1. M.W.F.
2. Tabac
3. Cella

I had to learn to lather MWF - and still overload it to make sure I get enough lather for my shave. But the post shave feel is still second to none.

Cella is a soft soap, but performs admirably every time I use it. It has a sweet marzipan cherry scent that puts some off. I enjoy it highly though.

Tabac - the gandpa scented shaving soap. I have used Tabac as deodorant in my teens in the 80's and while I think the scent is on the mature side now, I enjoy it. The lather from Tabac is great and it provides me with a fantastic shave each time I use it.

My pick for this 3-some: TABAC

Tabac rocks.

I won't vote, as I have limited experience with the other two.

Going with the Fat. Tabac is right there but I don't have issues lathering MWF and I enjoy the scent a tad more. When I'm in dire need of a really good shave I go for either one, but the Fat takes it.

MWF for me. It was my first soap and will ALWAYS have a home in my den. I reach for several times a week and was the first soap puck I've used completely. 2nd place would be Tabac. I dislike Cella.

I'll have to go with Tabac as MWF's scent is too much for me and Cella's marzipan scent isn't a favourite of mine.

But is it mixed in with your lifetime supply of Mystic waters?  Tongue

I voted Tabac, and would pick Cella next then MWF. But I enjoy all three for scent and performance.

No, Freddie! I haven't used Tabac in over 3 years, but I still remember its scent.  Biggrin

I love triple milled soap and TABAC is top notch.
Plus strong scent and wonderful performance.

Full disclosure I haven't used Cella, so it's between Tabac and MWF. I have to go with the Tabac based upon scent and  lathering. If I could get as great of a lather with the Fat, it would have been my fav.

I'd also opt for Tabac.  You're right though Claus, MWF does have a great post shave feel.  I just don't care for the lather.  The amazing thing about MWF though is that even with poor lather the post shave is great!

MWF scented soap that lathers as easy as Cella and as rich as Tabac...  that would be cool.  Love Cella and Tabac but I get better lather from Tabac so it gets my vote.  Liked MWF (loved the scent and post-shave) but it was much to finicky for early am shaves before work.

Tobac for me also, great lather great scent. MWF is just a tad behind it and I cannot stand the scent of Cella. Oth Panama Boellis 1924 has a great lather and scent for me so I use that instead of Cella.

I like Cella best but please consider that due to a accident I have almost no sense of smell left, sometimes I wish I still had and other times it can be a blessing  Smile

Tabac gets my vote; great lather & I like the scent.
I never figured out MWF & I've never tried Cella so I can't really say anything about it.

I pick Tabac. For its great lather and presentation.

Cella is good but I've had some that has gone brown and started to smell off.

MWF is a pain to lather with my water. Life's too short and there are soaps which are better and less fussy.

The soap you are conjuring in your mind actually exists. It's called Haslinger Schafmilch.  You could lather it with a Q-tip and still get excellent lather and it smells remarkably similar to MWF
