    Well, I'm going for it....my top 8 soaps and creams so far:

    PannaCrema Nuāvia Line - Verde, Rossa, and Blue
    MdC - all flavours.
    Castle Forbes - again, love em all.
    XPEC
    Klar Seifen
    DR Harris
    T&H Creams.
    Penhaligon hard soaps

    But the PannaCrema Nuāvia line takes first spot for me...this stuff is the bomb.

    You also need to try the Grooming Dept New Artisan great soap my favorite along with the Nauvia line

    Neglected trying Harris for quite some time, so purchased Windsor a few weeks back--brilliant scent (soap, AS, and cologne...in for a penny in for a pound)!

    I've only used the soap twice and both times I didn't get much slickness (glide) from it. While it lathers up beautifully, the lack of slickness has me thinking I may not be quite getting enough soap into the brush--it's definitely a hard puck that needs some blooming.

    For you long-time Harris users, is my assessment right with this soap?

    Windsor is my favourite, but the Marlborough and Arlington are just as nice...you have to really load the brush, take some tweaking as always, but a Top Tier soap. Same can be said of the Penhaligon's English Fern and Sartorial, two stellar, stellar soaps that always deliver.

    Thanks for the feedback, Phrank! Will double down on the loading when I use it next. Am looking forward to dialing it in, as the lather it produced was excellent and the sent is great! Will have to give Pen's soaps a try--their creams are outstanding!

    Yea, I have Arlington and you have to load it like you hate and go back for more. Not a favourite of mine because of that.

    On top of loading it like you hate it as the other guys have said, my experience is that our hard water here in Denver requires a lot. Harris gets thirsty in Denver.

    I've got two of them to think about, so I have no problem loading a brush.
