For many, the thought of embracing anything in the realm of delicate flowers feels too scarily close to the beautifying regimens of women. But brace yourself. Unbeknownst to you, you’ve been wearing florals—though they may have been watered down by musky notes or omitted from product names altogether. Yeah, grooming brands have been peddling petals to guys for a minute. And with the healing properties of roses, in particular, being especially next level, why not embrace them head on?

Traditionally used to soothe and tone skin, rose extract has been clinically proven to have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties—especially great for men of color, who often battle ingrown hairs, razor burn and hyperpigmentation from shaving. Rose essential oil is the most potent and rose water— a by-product of the distillation process– is a kick-ass hydrator.

Gear up for Valentine’s Day with these rose-infused buys that’ll keep your look on point without causing you to lose any bass in your voice.
