    I used WARS (classic scent) today for the first time in ages. I probably used too much product, but, what wonderful stuff! Loads of cushy, protective lather and a great shave! The scent (which I rememberd wrongly) is very similar to Arko stick, but not as powerful and WARS has just a hint of cologne/musk added in.

    I've been using Lider Active for the last couple days. The scent is similar to WARS, but minus the Arko-ness. So, more of a cologne/musky scent. It's a solid performer and a good lather too. All three are keepers, but of the three, WARS is my overall favorite. :D

    What about BOND? I love the green one! I can't stand the scent of Wars but love both Lider flavors. I would love to have Lider Active AS. Mmmm

    I tried Bond Spacequest which was pretty good. One Polish cream which I also tried, but hated was Kanion Classic. A lousy scent and no skincare although the lather is good.

    I bought mine from open_razor on eBay. I think it was $16 bucks for three different bond creams. All quite good creams.

    The Bond I really liked was the Fresh with aloe. Anything with aloe works great for me. Never heard of Kanion.

    Wow, talk about a blast from the past. I'd forgotten about Wars and Lider. It's been years since I've seen them mentioned.

    I haven't tried Lider yet. But I do have a Wars cream and aftershave right now. Great stuff. Another fine Polish contender is Brutal classic. Cream and aftershave are both on the short list of products that I've managed to finish.

    I am hoarding two tubes of Wars, good stuff. I don't know if it is still available though.

    Also, holy necropost Batman!

    I'm half Polish on my dad's side, and after reading your original post I had to look it up on the bay. You can find the shave creams here, and at $26 USD and some change for the lot, it's a real bargain. I advise against passing it up. Don't be alarmed by the Polish monetary price. The exchange rate to USD places the lot at under $11, $12-something for S/H, bringing the total with tax to under $27 for no fewer than four tubes of Polish-brand shave creams.
