I'm interested in getting a little rose otto or absolute, for mixing into unscented shaving cream and soap lathers and with some aftershaves, but I have never used any and have no idea which companies produce the best. If anyone here has experience using any of them, I would appreciate hearing about which you think are the best.

Thanks.

I like good ol’ Smirnoff much better than Absolute.  I’m not sure if either one is available in a rosato.  I know that Martini does make a rosato vermouth which might be good with the Vodka, not sure.  
I can’t imagine either one being a good additive for shaving supplies...but hey!  Whatever floats yer boat!

I would also like to try this churchillafemme.   Rose is one of my favorite scents, not the geranium rose, but pure rose .  I'm also a fan out some ouds, most notably Montale Black Aoud.

A couple guys have suggested I use a rose hydrosol because an otto or absolute would be too concentrated. I'd like to hear if anyone has used hydrosols this way.

Following advice from Frank Lipani (Ethos Grooming) and others, I ordered from Eden Botanicals the following:

Rose Hydrosol 8oz
Rose Absolute, Bulgaria 1ml
Rose Absolute, Morocco 1ml
Rose Absolute Trilogy (Bulgaria, Morocco, Turkey) 1ml
Rose Essence Oil (Bulgarian and Moroccan Roses, with Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Rose Geranium, Fossilized Amber, Patchouli and several Sandalwoods) 1ml free sample
Rose Geranium Oil 1ml free sample

I am going to divide the hydrosol into 50ml bottles, then try adding 1 drop of each of the absolutes to different bottles and use the mixes in some lathers. I'm not sure yet what I'll do with the free samples.
