    Post Galaxolide (Musk G) Dilution

    Peace, family. Hope everyone is well!!

    I'm new to fragrance making and am enjoying the process so far. I'm made my first fragrance and it actually turned out really nice and lasted for 6 hours!!

    Anyways...

    I ordered some Galaoxlide from Perfumers Apprentice and I realized when it got to my house that I ordered the wrong one. This one is REALLY thick!!

    I was wondering what I could use to dilute it and how much would you all dilute it down?

    It's an 80ml bottle.

    It is often diluted to 50% in several choices, IPM, DPG, or even perfumer alcohol.

    Paul,

    Should I have heated the Galaxolide before I diluted it?

    It will pour easier with heat, but may not be necessary to dilute cold. Kinda depends what you're diluting with, but even so, given time, it will likely be fine.
