Perfume Production -- drops to grams

    When I develop a new fragrance, I work with dropper bottles. Because of this, my initial formula is written out in drops.

    To scale up the formula for production, I convert drops to grams and then convert then to percents. Once I have calculated the percentage, by weight, that each material contributes to the formula, I can scale up to any size batch I want.

    I've posted an article describing the "drops to grams to percents" conversion here, at my website.

    I've also posted a short video on YouTube showing how to set up an electronic balance to do the measuring.

    Thanks for your interest!
