I'm looking for some advice on the correct proportions of ingredients to use in making a single-note perfume from White Ginger Lily absolute. I'd like to use bezoin as a fixative & would prefer to use alcohol as a diluent as opposed to an oil base.
Anyone worked with this material? What concentration of WGL absolute should I aim for? 20%? Higher? Lower? Is it easily soluble in alcohol?
At what percentage should the fixative be added without overwhelming the WGL? Is there any problem using benzoin? Should I consider glucam p-20 as an odorless fixative?
Given the price of WGL absolute (~$10/ml) I'd hate to destroy the precious by bumbling. TIA.
