It's gone folks! I'm looking forward to the reviews. I'm also looking forward to trying it myself! If it's junk (I doubt it) I got caught for more than these gents did since I kept the odd 140gram bowl from the 465g block for myself in addition to the 160 gram bowl. I look forward to the reviews of it.


I read on another forum that 3P croap would be a viable sunstitute for my beloved P.160 soft Italian soap. I found some at Connaught and instead of bringing in just enough for me to test, decided to bring in an entire 1000ml (yes, volume, not weight).

I only wanted enough for my use so that leaves a bunch to share. I kept 160 grams for me, that leaves 5 food grade plastic double wrapped quantities for other folks (or fewer, read on).

I have NOT used it yet and it will be quite some time until I can get to it. The scent is almond and maybe "more" than P.160. That's as far as I've gotten with it. It smells good enough to eat.

My cost shipped CONUS is $9.10. That covers cost of shipping from the UK, a mailer, and CONUS shipping. The quantity will fill an ugly xs ziploc food container as shown (160 grams).

PM me if you want some. Paypal only.

It smells like marzapan. Yes, like P.160, Vitos, or Valobra almond.

Cella smells nothing like almond so that throws me off (it's synthetic cherry to my nose).

Thanks. To me all these soaps smell very similar, cella's scent is a little lighter to my nose than the others. Also, do you know how much the chunks weigh, Brian?

Whoops! Sorry! How did that slip by me? Yes, as accurate as my scale can measure, 160 grams +- 5 grams before the plastic wrap.

Grant, I just hope it's worthy. But the word I have from a gent with LOTS of soap experience who tried it is that it's like P.160. That is a very good reccommendation indeed coming from this gent. IMO P.160 is among the very best of the best, but alas, it's no longer made or available. Make an ultralather with P.160 and you're in for a shaving treat. It'd be really nice if this measures up to that.

I have enough P.160 for my needs, I got this soap in the interest of finding an alternative for other folks. I hope you like it. I'll review it in probably 2 weeks or so. I almost never do a superficial review.
