    When Williams changed formulas I was around 15 and I actually started using the Dove hand soap that my mom put in the bathroom. It lathered really well. Arko reminds me of Vintage Williams with just a stronger Ivory Soap type smell to it. I miss Vintage Colgate too. It was just as good as Vintage Williams, and I still have a Puck that I enjoy using from time to time.

    I just realized that I've never voted in this poll. I cast my vote for Williams, based on vintage Williams Lather Shave Cream, which is about the finest shave cream I've ever had the pleasure of using.

    The soap on the other hand, works great on my linen strops. Haven't found any other use for it.

    Arko works great, if you can get past the smell. I can't. And I can't even pretend to smell it anymore since my wife banished lemon pledge from the house, as SHE hates that smell.
