I think I do . . . right now, anyway. Do you?

I like tabac more because MWF causes a skin reaction and tabac does not.

Tabac by a mile. As a soap just as good. Scent just makes it more awesome.

I'd have to give the edge to MWF over TABAC, but not by much!

Tabac is next on my list. Is there a cream? I know there's a soap.

Recommendation? Generally I prefer a soap but my mind is open if one is clearly better. Is there a refill? Generally I prefer lighter scent rather than heavier if that makes difference.

Thanks.

I'm starting to lean more towards Tabac than MWF lately, since it's just easier to lather. I can do pretty well with MWF, but Tabac is pretty much effortless. I'm still undecided though.

I use both and they both provide the lather, protection, and quality shave that I'm looking for. But if you held a gun to my head and said I could only have one, it would be the MWF.

MWF is a great soap, I based a lot of my reviews around it.

MWF is nice, but Tabac is light years ahead.

MWF is a nightmare to get to work here. For that reason, tabac is the soap of choice.

There isn't a I don't like either option.

I can't stand the scent of TABAC,
and both MWF and TABAC dry my face out.

Sorry to hear that. Does your tongue also dry out when you eat bacon? Tongue

Both arte very good soaps, and I use both, but I do like the scent of Tabac over the MWF.

Pnume,
I like Mitchell's Wool Fat. I like Tabac. For me, one is not better than the other. Rather, I take each soap for what it is and don't compare the two.

I haven't paid attention, but sounds like I should keep a beer chaser handy when eating bacon, just to be safe. Biggrin

Thanks.

there is a cream. I used tabac soap for the first time during my last shave and thought it lathered wonderfully. I personally like the smell of tabac. I think the soap lathers better than the cream. I'll probably throw my tabac cream up in the b/s/t section within the next few days.

that being said, I've never used MWF so I cannot compare the two.

I just got to try out tabac today thanks to a meet up, that scent isnt all that bad, but i certainly prefer mwf to it by a long shot, the shave is okay too, wouldnt really put one above the other. but to me scent is so huge its not a close race for my nose just my miles they tend to vary quite a lot from time to time lmao
