    I know that sometimes these questions can become contentious and I don't mean it to be but for Fun & Giggles I would be interested in what we all consider their favorites.

    Ok without any order my 5 would be:
    Proraso White
    Nivea Blue (preferably the German formulation nicer scent)
    Nivea White
    Nancy Boy Signature

    I really prefer soaps but there are a few creams I like to use once in a while.

    Ingram - If you like menthol, this is a good one to try.
    Art of Shaving (whatever scent you like) - They're expensive but at least they're good
    Proraso - any scent except the blue for me.
    Truefitt & Hill (whatever scent you like) - also expensive but I think it's the pick of the litter from the 3 T's.
    Cyril R. Salter - I like Sublime Citrus but they have some other good scents too.

    I haven't seen Palmolive menthol in a while so maybe it's discontinued? it would get an honorable mention. The scent is a bit odd but it works well.
    Trumpers creams are pretty good and they have some nice scents. They might be a tie with Salter. TOBS is not quite as good IMO.

    I just recently (only a few weeks) began shaving with creams again after a very long hiatus. Proraso Red and Green were the ones I started with before going strictly soap. That said, my top 5 creams are

    DRH Arlington
    DRH Eucalyptus
    ASW Aloe
    ASW Bay Rum
    Proraso Red

    I really like Proraso Blue and Nivea Senstive (not sure they still make that).

    Old Spice and TOBS were okay.

    That's all I've tried (other than Barbasol - which I really, really wish made a good cream that smelled like the foam).
