The best thing I have discovered about my new shaving disorder is the plethora of products out there. The learning curve of DE technique after 1/2 a century of cartridges led me to my first non-Walmart purchase: GFT Coral Skin Food. I was concerned about the rose scent but took the plunge anyway. I'm glad I did, I loved it. Now I'd like to do a shave of rose from start to finish. I read the thread about rose scented soaps; now how about creams, balms, splashes, EDT etc. 

Let me know your favorites and what pairs well with what in your opinion.

We have had similar threads before, my recommendation is still the same:
Dusy men professional Kabinett,
identical to Klar Kabinett, 14EU will buy you 500g of a great performing soap with a nice roses' scent and some citric freshness added. Long time favorite.

Geo. F. Trumper's has a really great smelling rose shaving cream.  Their new formula soaps are nearly impossible to lather.  You can get a good lather, but, it takes a bit of effort.  I turned mine into bath soaps.  Anyway, their cream is spot on, as far as the fragrance is concerned.  I also like Taylor of Old Bond Street Rose Shaving Cream.  

There was/is a European made mentholated rose vegetal, but, I fail to recall which country it is from, and, its name.

Of course, you may want to add a rose water, as a toner.  There are several brands available.

Another vote for Trumper's Rose cream. Nice balance of floral and earthy tones -- like shaving in a rose garden!

My favorite rose cream is Art of Shaving Rose Absolute shave cream, and their aftershave milk. They were advertised for women, but perform as well as other AOS products. It's no longer made, but is available online.

Soaps: JabonMan Eufros tallow Rosa Bourbon (and aftershave milk), Czech & Speak No. 88, CWSW Olivia Summer Rose.

EdT/cologne: Czech & Speake Dark Rose, and No. 88; Penhaligon's Hammam Bouquet.
