Perfume formulating

I am Using copy fragrance oils to make perfume, on Internet research now I am confused about using dipropylene glycol, glycerine, and fixatives. I am currently make perfume by 

24% oil
4% fixative
2% glycrine 
72% Alcohol

I think my fragrance is little changing due to fixative.
Can any body tell me is glycrine an alternative of DPG, I am using it for skin friendlyness and its stability.

    what fixative do you use ? and actually glycerine and Dpg are not necessary if you are using good fixative
  • Your perfume concentrate is very high, it should not be more than 10 %

    How stable is your fragrance oil, fixatives help in fixation. I feel there is an issue with the fragrance oil. 
  • its Fixomax, Supplier also dont have its generic name

    I hope it's not Conmix?, insist with the supplier for details. You can't get no for an answer from a supplier and that too to know the name of the product that you already buy.
