For several years I have been using Galerie. I like the natural white paper base, overall emulsion tone and surface finish. It's different in a good way than other paper.

I read Classic's emulsion is slightly warmer than the paper it replaces. That would suit me for a neutral paper.
I'm not sure if this was addresses but a reduced wash time may indicate the paper lacks something......don't papers acceptable for bromoil or hand coloring lack a supercoat? Is it possible the emulation does not have hardener added?
