Would love to hear everyone's opinion on Boellis Panama 1924 shave soap and after shaves. How do they compare with the best out there?

Soap is good for an almond soap. 

Aftershave leaves a bit to be desired. To much alcohol and not moisturizing for the price.

Just might be the best Italian soap out there.

I agree the aftershaves do not have the best moisturizing properties but I love their EdT's....
particularly the classic Panama and their Millesime.

I agree with Ron, it's an excellent Italian soap. It has a very light almond scent, unlike Italian soaps with a strong almond scent, and it's incredibly easy to lather.  The AS is an alcohol AS, and isn't meant to be moisturizing. I like it, but later follow up with their balm or gel for moisturizing. The classic EdT is my favorite EdT. I spend more than I should on high end EdT's, but I've yet to find one that I like better than Boellis Panama Classic.

Great review.

The soap is the only almond for me now. The AS smells great and functions well when followed up w a balm. 1924 EdT is very nice, and I also really enjoy the Daytona EdT. With the pineapple, it seems to me like a more sophisticated Aventus.

One of my favorites too. Light almond scent, no cherry to it. It's up there with ABC and the rest of the premium Italian croaps.

Cheers, Steve

I'm not a fan of the Cella almond cherry scent at all! I love the ABC Saponetta very natural and light almond scent though, but I hear the soft soap smells stronger which is why I've never switched from the saponetta. How would you say it compares to that?

Love it. ABC and Boellis are my favourite almond soaps. Followed closely by Cella Brick, which value wise is an incredible good soap too.

Love the tamed down almond scent in the Boellis. A more dry natural almond scent.
