Just got this soap today. Another Italian soap with an almond scent. Will be giving it a whirl the next few days and will report back.

Man, do those Italians love almonds or what???

I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this soap. All those "potassium xx" ingredients should make that lather really well.

Yea, makes you wonder, almonds must flow through Italy like water.

Biter sweet Almond scent??? NOOOOOOOOOO
I seriously got tired of that scent..
However,that soap seems to be good : simple formulation,with good ingredients and I bet provides thick and slick lather with nice skin care properties.
Yes,the Italians know how to make good,simple shaving soaps!

Tomorrow's shave? I'm never indecisive unless it's this topic. I think I might go with Palmolive menthol or Tet-a-Tet.

Just did a quick test lather and yes, that lather was thick and seemed quite slick but really a shave will tell. Seemed to lather up quickly. The scent is similar to Cella, and strangely in the same type tub as Cella, but white not red. I asked Eric of Barbiere di Figaro if it was rebranded Cella, and it seems Nicky Chini said no. Although, now that I see the ingredient list, its not.

I like almond scents but I also like variation.
I they would offer a few alternatives that would be great.
Might order that when the re-open from vacation.
