    Default Which Vodka is better to make perfume?

    Yesterday I bought a bottle of 100% proof vodka but later I realized that it also says 50% alcohol on it. Did I buy the right stuff???

    Dont know about make perfume with vodka, but you can mix it with lemon cut with peel, sugar and ice.
    Close to brazilian caipirinha, the best cocktail of the world (swap vodka for cachaça)

    If Everclear grain alcohol is available in your area, use that. It's 190 proof, or 95% pure ethanol, which is as pure as it gets. Any purer and it will absorb moisture from the air and get there anyway, IIRC.

    Any vodka will be about half water, and you may have trouble getting oils to blend fully.

    You'll get better results if you post questions like this in the "Fragrance DIY" forum.

    In our area the brand of grain alcohol available is Graves rather than Everclear. Check at your local liquor store. The sale of grain alcohol is prohibited in some states.

    I wouldn't really advise that you use vodka for your blends, if you can get your hands on some Perfumers' alcohol is the way to go. If this is not possible you can try some Everclear depending on where you are located.
