If you like to search for vintage and EXCELLENT performance, then C&E Sweet Almond Oil soap all the way. It is the scent of almond tree blossoms. Beautiful. The cream is the same idea, but it does not come across identically. Both are great.

If performance and actual lather are dead last on your list then Trumpers Almond soap is all you. Same scent as the C&E but much stronger, whereas the C&E is more nicely done, IMO. [The cream is again a different scent (marzipan).]

I'm with Nero on the opinion that the vintage C&E Sweet Almond Oil is both the best almond fragrance and probably one of the best if not the best performing cream ever, and yes, I have and used the legendary Xpec. But of current choices, Boellis Panama.

For me the best Almond is Boellis Panama hands down, but there are quite a few Almond soaps that I also use such as DRH, P160 Tipo Duro, Susan Darnell Vito's, and Cella New Tub.
