    Exclamation Perfume Formulation/Ratio

    Hello again! In my country, the formulation that we have for perfumes are as follows:

    1. Fragrance oil
    2. Propylene Glycol
    3. Fixative
    4. Distilled water
    5. Perfume Grade Alcohol

    I have seen ratios of materials 2-4 based on the level of fragrance oil. Ex: for every 30ml fragrance oil, you would need 10ml fixative, 5ml propylene glycol, 5ml distilled water, and 100ml perfume grade alcohol to make a 150ml perfume solution at 20% oil concentration. Do you have any ideas what would be the formula or ratio if I would want to have a 30% oil concentration (125ml) that would yield to 500ml perfume?


    Would highly appreciate your response since this would be a big help to my business. I do not want to produce bad quality of perfume because of wrong formulation.



    Thanks in advance.

    Correction: 25% oil concentration (125ml) that would yield to 500ml perfume.

    1. Fragrance oil
    2. Propylene Glycol NO. PG is for food, not fragrances.
    3. Fixative Why? If your perfume is properly formulated, unnecessary.
    4. Distilled water Why?
    5. Perfume Grade Alcohol
