    I'm fixing to make an Molocule 01 perfume

    I ordered a bottle of the Iso E Super along with a bottle and measuring equipment. I'm going to get the bottle of everclear tomorrow. However I'm unclear as to whether I need to physically mix the oil and alcohol

    Thanks

    If you just let the Iso E sit in the alcohol for a day or so (probably less), that's really all you need to do. Try and get the 190-proof Everclear, and Molecule 01 is (apparently) around a 15% concentration, but I usually wear it a little stronger when I make my own.

    I would simply measure the amount of Iso E Super you want to use, up to about 20% but not more, add ethanol, seal the bottle and shake: voila!

    You really do need the strong Everclear for this though otherwise you won't be able to use enough Iso E Super to get a good result. If the mixture is milky that's the problem and if it does not go clear within a minute or so it is never going to.
