Hey all,

I am wondering which cream or soap to get next. I currently shave with an ATT S2, using a feather blade, and a dirtybird 1.5 shave scuttle. So far I narrowed it down to the newer Esbjerg, orange vetiver or the amber cardamon, or the Pannacrema Nuavia. I prefer stronger scented soap with lots of cushion and slickness.

I was leaning more towards the Nuavia but have no idea of how the lather performs in a hot scuttle.

I wish I could be of more help but I have never tried the Esbjerg creams.

I have the Pannacrema Nuavia though and it is an excellent soap that has a pleasant scent [Blu]. I face lather and don't use a bowl or scuttle so can't comment on that either.

Good luck- of course the easy answer is get both Smile

Get both. They are both wonderful. The PN is probably stronger scented and a little more cushion and slickness. It is also double the price but why not get both

I haven't tried Esbjerg, but Nuavia is a masterpiece.

Nuavia is among the best soaps you can get
Esbjerg is among the best creams you can get

Conclusion:

Get both, I saw the Esbjerg cream on sale for £8.50 last wekk (sold out now) - so it's rather cheaply priced for such a great cream
I own both the Nuavia's and all 5 Esbjerg creams. Top notch stuff IMHO

I even have a backup Esbjerg Verbena cream, because I bought the last one in stock at sale for £8.5 :-)

I am planning to get both at some point. Just trying to decide which one to get first. I would get the Nuavia but I am worried how the lather will hold up in a hot scuttle.

Someone on some forum commented that their lather dissipated rather rapidly when used with a warm scuttle. I had noticed that some of my soaps did the same. He suggested that he believed that the ones that dissipated quickly were tallow-based. Based on his suggestion, my own experiments, while brief and therefore not conclusive, seem to lend some credence to that idea. I have not tried Pannacrema, but I believe it's a tallow soap.

The Nuàvia twins are vegan, so no tallow.

I enjoy both, but I would give the award for the better of the two to Nuavia. The only drawback is Nuavia is astronomically overpriced, but I do have to admit it is a wonderful performer.
