I'd try it with some moisturiser on your skin first or it might be a waste of the ingredients already used.
Oh, I didn't know that. Good to know! I need to do a little experimenting on that. (Then how do they do commercial series of perfume, eau de perfume, eau de cologne, eau de toilette?)
As someone with truly sensitive skin, I wouldn't use anything that gives me rashes unless I put a moisturiser on the skin first. And I'd hesitate to put something on my skin that gives me rashes in the double concentration. What if my skin becomes more sensitive in the sun? or after long or regular exposure?
I would investigate the oils in the perfume by diluting them to the concentration you have in your perfume, putting it on my skin - at different patches - and wait for reaction. And then I would give the culprit away, or sell it to someone who isn't sensitive to it. Note that skin that has recently had some kind of rash is more sensitive, so if you do it choose other parts of your skin than the one you recently put irritants on.
